For those of us with sensitive skin, this is a wonderful balm. The infusion that I used was olive oil with Lemon balm, Comfrey, Calendula, and Chamomile. These herbs are some of the most healing herbs in use for centuries. I haven’t added any fragrance or essential oil to this balm, but it has a nice mellow, sweet natural fragrance from the herbs.
Cacao butter, is the cream-colored fat extracted from cacao seeds (cocoa beans) and has been called the ultimate moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin.
Many people are unfamiliar with babassu butter. Babassu oil (solid) is expeller pressed from the kernels of the babassu palm tree. The tree is native to Brazil. Babassu oil is similar to coconut oil in properties. Babassu butter is high in lauric acid and melts upon contact with the skin. Babassu butter penetrates quickly and does not leave a greasy after feel.
Chamomile is well known for its calming aroma and its skin soothing properties.
Care has been taken in blending the organic cacao, shea butter, organic babassu and organic coconut oil to balance and soothe the skin without any oily residue.
Use by rubbing a small amount in palms and apply to skin while rubbing or can be used on dry hair to deep condition or to protect from heat.
