Make Your Own Mango Butter Hand Salve

Make Your Own Soothing Mango Butter Hand Salve - Biome Naked Beauty Bar Our soothing mango butter hand salve, with its nourishing oils, healing mango butter and beeswax for further protection, will bring life back to hard working hands. It is particularly great for those who spend a lot of time in the garden or suffer from dry, chapped hands. In this salve, along with nourishing castor and olive oil, we use mango butter, which is obtained from the seed of the mango fruit. This incredible butter is not only deeply moisturising like shea and cocoa butters, it is packed full of natural antioxidants which brings the skin back to life. Mango butter is rich in fatty acids, including oleic and stearic, as well as omega 9, and has a very faint sweet smell. The essential oils used in this recipe bring further medicinal benefits, however if you are sensitive to essential oils, you could always omit them.



  1. Place a glass mason jar into a saucepan with about 5cm of water in it. Turn the heat to medium. Into the jar add the mango butter, beeswax, castor oil and olive oil. Stir until melted and remove from heat.
  2. Add the essential oils to the mixture in the mason jar and stir.
  3. Carefully pour the hand salve mixture into your metal container and let it cool completely.
