1. Heal scars
While preventing stretch marks is easier than eliminating them once they’ve developed, you can use mango butter to help heal them, and other scars as well, like acne and even age spots. You can make a potent scar cream using mango butter combined with shea butter and cocoa butter, as all three are known to be effective for healing. Here’s how to do it:
2 tbsp mango butter
2 tbsp shea butter
2 tbsp cocoa butter
7 drops lavender oil
4 drops carrot seed oil
Melt all of the butters in a double boiler. Once melted, stir in all essential oils, lavender, helichrysum and carrot seed, which are also known for their scar-fighting powers. Pour the mixture into a Mason jar or other glass, lidded-jar and use to apply on your scars at least once a day.
2. Prevent stretch marks
Stretch marks are common during pregnancy, but you can help prevent that deep scarring with mango butter, thanks to its many nutrients. The best way to create a super powerful DIY stretch mark preventer is to combine it with coconut oil, that also helps to restore damaged skin. When used together, it offers the most dramatic results. To make it, all you have to do is combine equal parts mango butter and coconut oil and smear it onto to areas prone to stretch marks like the abdomen, hips, and breasts.
3. Moisturize your hair
If you’re suffering from dry tresses, especially if your hair is thick and/or curly, mango butter makes a wonderful moisturizer. It’s best used as part of the following recipe.
1/4 cup mango butter
1 tsp avocado oil
2 tsp aloe vera gel
10 drops lavender essential oil
Melt the mango butter in a double boiler and then stir in the avocado oil, aloe vera gel and lavender essential oil. Pour the mixture into your blender, but don’t turn it on just yet – remove the container and place it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes until it’s hardened. Now place the container back onto your blender and blend until the result is a creamy texture. You can store it in a mason jar and then use it as a leave-in conditioner on damp hair, applied mainly on the ends and avoiding the scalp.
4. Treat skin conditions like eczema & psoriasis
Mango butter is not only incredibly soothing, it offers anti-inflammatory properties that can treat inflamed, dry, itchy skin caused by eczema or psoriasis. You can easily make your own healing cream at home using mango butter by combining a quarter cup of soft mango butter and a half cup of soft, but not liquefied, coconut oil in a high-speed blender. Blend until a creamy, white mixture forms and then store it in a mason jar. Use it after a shower, and whenever you want to moisturize or treat your skin.
