Hemp and Mango Refining Paste

This makes a nice paste for use in the bath or shower. It contains a fine sea salt (which I think gives the best exfoliation, with no scratching) and, despite its high oil content, it rinses easily from the skin, leaving a softening, smoothing, non-oily film.  The hemp oil gives it a lovely natural green colour.

Warm a small amount between the hands and apply to damp skin, in small circular motions, working from extremities towards the heart.  Use 2-3 times per week.

Makes 100g

50g Fine Sea Salt
22g Natural Hemp Oil
8g Mango Butter
8g P80 (polysorbate 80)
5g Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate
5g Stearic Acid
1.5g Essential Oil/Fragrance oil (I used a blend of clary sage, cypress and lavender essential oils)
0.5g Rosemary Seed Extract

You may wish to add a preservative if you are concerned about any water getting into the pot.

·    Heat the mango butter, stearic acid, SSL and P80 until they are completely melted.  Add the hemp seed oil and stir well.
·    Allow to cool a little before gently stirring in the rosemary seed extract and essential oil/fragrance oil
·    Stir in the salt a little at a time and then whip with a balloon whisk.
·    Place in a pot and put in the fridge for 2-3 hours, until set.
