While formulating "Butter Wood Balm" I was compelled to pause and acknowledge the plant material that I work with and give thanks to my suppliers who work ethically through Fair Trade and Sustainable practices to procure and distribute vital Plant material. I am deeply indebted to Organic farmers’ world-wide and those who support their endeavors ~ my work could not be as vital without their offerings. (And quite frankly “I’m in Butter Wood heaven”)! Although I've numerous formulas that I love, "Butter Wood Balm" is one of the original moisturizers and therefore holds a special place in my heart. At times I've placed it on the back-burner as new ones took its place ... but as all things loved, it calls to me. I revisited this formula and made a few adjustments (incorporating East African Shea Butter along with the West African variety) and the results are stunning: a texture resembling the softest of butter ~ combined with fresh pressed plant oils that soften and nourish dry, winter skin. "Butter Wood Balm" has been on monthly special and one week remains to purchase at the discounted rate ~ as my costs have gone up I suggest "get while the 'gitten is good".
: cold-pressed and unrefined ~ carrying vitamins A, D, & E ~ penetrating the deepest layers of the skin to support its ability to function, as well as to soften and give it elasticity. Shea Butter:
one of the finest botanical substances for keeping the skin soft, toned, and radiant.
