Meltdown Shea butter, coconut oil, and mango butter using a double boiler or by adding them to a heat-safe bowl and placing that bowl over a pot of boiling water.

Step Three:

Step Four:

Let mixture harden in the refrigerator for 1.5 hours (Be careful not to leave it in too long as this might cause water crystals to form in your oils and make whipping your butter a challenge. )

Step Five:

After the mixture is semi-hardened, begin to mix with hand-mixer on high setting for 10 minutes.

Step Six:

Mid way through mixing, add arrowroot powder then continue mixing. Remeber this is completely option.

Why would I need arrowroot powder Are there any benefits?

Arrow root powder will absorb any excess oil in your mixture to make it NOT GREASY .
