A decadent whipped body butter, intended to support skin hydration, elasticity, and scar healing.
This body butter is essential oil free & super SUPER hydrating. Apply to dry skin anywhere, chapped lips, healing scars, cracked elbows and heels, or massage a layer into your face & skin before going out into harsh, cold, dry elements. For folks with chronically dry skin this could be a wonderful moisturizing treatment. If your skin prefers something a little lighter, try the Ambrosia crème. It also smells (and looks!) like dessert, but while the ingredients are so clean you technically could eat it, I don’t recommend it.
pomegranate seed co2 extract - an incredibly rich & healing fatty oil that promotes skin cell regeneration, elasticity, and hydration
sea buckthorn fruit co2 extract - another healing fatty oil, wonderful for healing damaged skin
ghee - ghee is pure butterfat, meaning that the small amount of water and milk solids (proteins) in butter are cooked and strained out, resulting in a shelf-stable, delicious and incredibly healing “oil”; while the popularity and mainstream awareness of ghee comes from Ayurveda (the ancient herbal tradition of India), I’m discovering that many cultures around the world make and use “ghee;” this makes sense, as it is an excellent way of preserving butter! We almost always have ghee prepared in our home, for cooking. In my herbalism studies, I learned that ghee helps to deliver its own nutrients, and the nutrients of the foods you eat it with more deeply into the tissues of the body. I’ve added it to this body butter with that intention: to help deliver the nutrients and medicine of the other oils more deeply into the skin. I prepared this ghee myself, from organic French butter
organic ingredients: fair trade shea butter, homemade ghee, cacao butter, pomegranate seed co2 extract, sea buckthorn fruit pulp co2 extract, vitamin e oil & rosemary co2 extract
