Instructions

  1. Begin making your pumpkin spice body butter by slowly melting the cocoa butter in a double boiler (I used a glass pyrex measuring cup inside a small saucepan of water on low heat)

  2. Once cocoa butter is melted completely, add in mango butter and melt on low heat.
  3. Add in pumpkin seed oil and remove the glass Pyrex measuring cup from heat using a tea towel or potholder.
  4. Stir gently and allow to cool for 10-20 minutes
  5. Measure in essential oils and pumpkin pie spice (if using). Stir well to combine
  6. Allow the mixture to cool for about an hour until oils are just beginning to harden. You can speed this up by placing your pyrex measuring cup in the refrigerator, but mango butter tends to crystallize when melted quickly or when made to harden back up quickly.
  7. Once the mixture is beginning to solidify, whip with an electric handheld mixer with one beater attached or pour into a standing mixer and whip until light and fluffy. This can take a while, so I generally leave mine in the standing mixer. You can always put your butter back in the refrigerator to help it harden more quickly.
  8. Transfer into a sterilized mason jar or another container.
  9. Store at room temperature for up to the shelf life of the oils (typically 6 months - 1 year).
