Ingredients

  • 5 Ounces Shea Butter, Crushed and Refined (you can also use cocoa butter)
  • 3 Ounces Peach Kernel Oil
  • 3 Ounces Safflower Oil, High Linoleic
  • 1 Ounce Jojoba Esters, 70 (MP70)
  • 1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
  • Essential Oil Blend
  • 15 drops Bourbon Vanilla Absolute
  • 25 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
  • 5 Drops Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil

Directions

  • In a double boiler, melt and heat the Shea Butter to approximately 175 Degrees Fahrenheit. (You can use a candy thermometer to check)
  • Hold the melted Shea Butter at this temperature for at least twenty minutes before adding the Jojoba Esters.
  • As soon as the Jojoba Esters have melted remove the mixture from heat. Next, add the Peach Kernel and Safflower Oils, and the Cornstarch.
  • Stir the mixture well then begin to whip it using a hand or stand mixer.
  • 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.

Notes

A friend made this for me as a gift, and I was instantly addicted. I have yet to make it myself, but she gave me the recipe in case I feel motivated. Shea butter can be hard to work with, so cocoa butter can be used instead to make it smoother.
