lavender butterlove should probably be called “chill” instead because it is made with two oils that are known for being calming and relaxing – lavender and mandarin! we just hear the word lavender and we think “relax” – but did you know that mandarin oil has been used in both ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines to calm the mind, soothing tensions and stresses for thousands of years? combined – lavender and mandarin may be a perfect butter to evoke the inner calm in all of us.
lavender has also been used extensively since ancient times. so revered by the Egyptians – that only the royal families and high priests were able to afford it for perfumery, cosmetics, medicine, and spiritual rituals! the Greeks and Romans used it for perfumery and bathing – but they too understood its medicinal properties - using it to treat all types of skin ailments, wounds, and burns. lavender oil is known to be antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and deodorant – making them wonderful additions to products for your skin! lavender is also known to help with migraines and insomnia. mandarin oil is rich in vitamin C and is antiseptic as well as anti-inflammatory! this butterlove smells very gently of lavender with a hint of mandarin in the background!
shea butter and coconut oil are also known to soothe and protect your skin by locking in hydration. grape seed oil is known to be rich in antioxidants – particularly catechins – which are found in green tea, red wine and berries! catechins are best known for their anti-aging benefits. grape seed oil also contains high amounts of linoleic acid – an essential fatty acid that is known to provide anti-inflammatory benefits! sunflower seed oil is also known as a super natural emollient and a very good source of vitamin E and filed with antioxidants.
