this refreshing butterlove is infused with two beautiful essential oils – lemongrass and lavender! the aroma is a gentle lemon scent. we do add a splash of lavender essential oil because it is known widely for its skin benefits. lemongrass, native to India and southeast Asia, is not from the citrus lemon family – it is an actual grass that grows wild in the hot climate. the aroma is known for being calming – and for easing anxiety and tension – even tension headaches! Yet....it is uplifting and refreshing – said to boost confidence and provide emotional strength - sounds perfect to help us kick off a challenging day!!
lavender oil has been used extensively since ancient times. it was previously used for perfumery, bathing and for its medicinal properties - using it to treat all types of skin ailments. the beautiful aroma of lavender is of course well known to be very calming and sedative – relaxing, soothing and balancing even the friskiest of us! both of these fabulous oils are each antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, antifungal and deodorant – making them wonderful additions to butters and creams for your skin!
shea butter and coconut oil are also known to soothe and protect your skin by locking in moisture. grape seed oil is 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 provided anti-inflammatory benefits! sunflower seed oil is also known for being a super natural emollient and is a very good source of vitamin E as well as antioxidants.
massage all over your body and together these natural plant ingredient butter and oils will absorb and penetrate quickly. apply liberally anywhere on your body - even on tips of hair if you would like.
