I was telling you here about the amazing ways you can improve your life with the help of mango butter. To convince you, I will add some DIY recipes with mango butter, so you won't need to run to the closest chemist in the middle of the night.
Recipe for Sunburn Treatment
With that in mind, here’s a recipe that can help you recover from sunburn (and other types of burn as well).
· 2 tbsp mango butter
· 2 tsp aloe vera gel
· 3 drops sea buckthorn oil
· 3 drops peppermint essential oil
Melt the mango butter in a double boiler. Then, add the aloe gel and mix well. Add the sea buckthorn and peppermint oils and mix well. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes. Then, whip with a hand mixer until creamy.
You can use the resulting cream on sunburns or damaged skin. It has a shelf life of about 18 months when stored in a dark, cool, dry location.
A word of caution, though: if you are dealing with a severe burn, you should always seek proper medical attention first. From there, you can talk to your doctor about using natural skin care products to heal your burn.
Recipe for scar cream
Simply melt down 2 tbsp of mango butter and coconut oil in a double boiler. Once melted, you can stir in scar fighting essential oils like 7 drops of helichrysum oil, 7 drops of lavender oil and 4 drops of carrot seed oil. Now pour this mixture into a glass jar. Apply on your scars daily.

Recipe for fruit and flower hair cream
