Blissful Body Mousse Recipe

Submitted By:

A fragrant variation of Whipped Shea Butter made with a delightful blend of Vanilla, Bergamot, and Ylang Ylang.


5 Ounces Shea Butter, Crushed and Refined
3 Ounces Peach Kernel Oil
3 Ounces Safflower Oil, High Linoleic
1 Ounce Jojoba Esters, 70 (MP70)
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
15 drops Bourbon Vanilla Absolute
25 drops Bergamot, Ivory Coast
5 Drops Ylang Ylang Extra, Madagascar


In a double boiler, melt and heat the Shea Butter to approximately 175 Degrees Fahrenheit. Hold the melted Shea Butter at this temperature for at least twenty minutes before adding the Jojoba Esters. Holding the melted Shea Butter at this heat for twenty minutes will allow tiny crystals in the butter to fully melt, allowing a smooth, even texture to form when the butter has cooled. As soon as the Jojoba Esters have melted remove the mixture from heat. Depending on your double boiler you may have to transfer the mixture to a bowl. Next, add the Peach Kernel and Safflower Oils, and the Cornstarch. Stir the mixture well then begin to whip it. I recommend using a hand or stand mixer for this step, as the whipping process can take a fairly long time. Whip the mixture for 5 - 10 minutes then add the Essential Oil Blend. Continue to whip the mixture for another 5 - 10 minutes. As the mixture cools it will thicken, and firm up. The finished mixture can be spooned or piped into containers. Within a few hours, the Mousse should set and become stiff.
