How Shea Butter Supports Forest Stewardship

When you hear the words shea butter, what instantly comes to your mind? Skin care? Body butter? Africa? Forests? Probably not forests. Well, they should! Why? Aside from the fact that Shea butter actually comes from trees, buying Shea butter helps to maintain and protect the eco system it’s apart of- and that includes forests. How many skin care ingredients can you say that about? Not a whole lot. But with Shea butter, you can. Here’s why:

Why We Use Niacinamide In Our Cellulite Cream

Few skincare ingredients have attracted such attention the way Niacinamide has in the last couple years. Otherwise known as vitamin B3 and Nicotinic acid, it really has taken the industry by storm- and it’s not just hype either. There are real results behind it and real research. People have been putting it in anti aging facial creations and swearing by it- but what about the body? Can Niacinamide be effectively used to support the rest of your skin too? Or are those results and findings only reserved for the face?

DIY Shea Butter and Frankincense Meditation Balm

Meditation is growing in popularity here in the West. People are finding that with regular meditation they feel more calm, focused and connected. For many, it’s a new thing. However, meditation itself is not new at all. People have been meditating  for centuries and different cultures have developed different methods they prefer. In some meditation practices, the use of sacred botanicals is employed to aid in the overall meditation experience. And one of those botanicals is Frankincense. Often burned as a resin, Frankincense is also available as an essential oil and just like in the past, it is a fantastic aid for meditation.

DIY Shea Butter and Essential Oil Muscle Rub

Sore muscles and joints are a pain- literally. They can make normal activities like sitting down and walking feel like a really unpleasant full time job. While there are plenty of reasons different people suffer from joint and muscle tension and pain, there are some things you can do to help alleviate some of the discomfort. Some people take pain relievers, some like to soak in a hot Epsom salt bath, and others like to use some form of a muscle rub.

DIY Cracked Hand Balm

Cold weather can be so harsh on your skin! Chapped lips, dry cheeks and cracking hands quickly become a daily battle, especially if you are someone who likes to adventure in the outdoors on a regular basis. But unfortunately regular moisturizing products like lotion don’t always do the trick. Heavier, oilier and more heavy-duty moisturizing and protective products are needed in order to help soothe chapped, dry and cracking skin from exposure to the elements like harsh wind and cold. And while you could absolutely go to the store and buy a moisturizing cream, why not make one yourself?
