Here's the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Sky Organics DIY Box.
Everything that we received in our Sky Organics DIY Box. These are all HUGE full sized products!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert that has our recipe in a fun schematic way!
Sourced directly from it's artisanal farmers in India this oil is Hexane free and cold pressed. Use on under eye bags, your scalp to repair damaged hair and on dry cracked lips. Can also be used as an excellent massage oil! This bottle is 16 ounces which is a LOT!
Each item we received came with it's own information card
We love that about this subscription - we've gained tons of knowledge from just this box alone!
This 16 ounce jar of Raw Mango Butter is cold pressed and unrefined. And as is all unrefined Mango Butter it is odorless. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids but mild enough that it can be used on your delicate facial skin and your hair. Can be used to ward off signs of aging and stretch marks. Use as a body moisturizer or put over a double boiler and apply the oil from your scalp to the tips of your hair for an amazing scalp treatment
What 1 pound of mango butter looks like!
Our mango butter information card
Love all the information that we receive!
USA made and cold pressed this can be used topically by mixing with a carrier oil or diffused with an aroma diffuser. Great at boosting your immune system and also lifting the spirits (great for these dark and dull winter months). It is also thought to be an aphrodisiac. Also helps to stave off aging and with regular exposure can regulate hormone production. Use on your tummy when you are experiencing cramps or constipation

And the reverse.
Okay so now what?
Following our instructions we melt both a half a cup of the Sweet Almond Oil and the Mango Butter over a double boiler
Here we are adding the ingredients
This was really interesting to watch the Mango Butter break down
About half way melted
And just about done! After this we allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Ours took about 2.5 hours
Our Sweet Almond Oil and Mango Butter Mixture
At this point we add 10 drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil to give it a delicious scent!
Then we mix it for 5 minutes until it's fluffy! Look how pretty
Our final step is to scoop it all into a mason jar! AND THAT'S IT!
So in summary
There is so much we love about this box. The large full sized products, the simple instructions and all of the information. We have wanted to try our hand at handmade soap and this has really whet our appetite! We had fun doing this and are on the lookout for more ways to use these wonderful organic products!
