Shea butter ( Butyrospermum parkii ) is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree mainly used in the cosmetics industry for skin and hair related products. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, where it has been used to protect and condition skin which has been damaged.
Shea Butter is naturally rich in minerals and vitamins like A, E and F. And Because of its soothing nature, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating effects, it is a perfect ingredient to incorporate into body and skin care products for you and your pets.
In addition, Shea Butter offers a low level of UV protection (approx. SPF-6). It is also wonderful to use in the summer as a moisturizer before and after sun exposure.
Flowers have been used for healing in virtually all countries and cultures.

Rosehip oil is one of the richest botanical sources of vitamin C and antioxidant flavonoids. Here are 4 easy ways to help your pet and your own skin with rosehip oil:
Salves ( also known as ointments) are such a simple, effective and useful medicine!. They can easily be slipped into a purse, pocket, or first aid kit. Although semi-solid at room temperature, salves soften once applied to the skin, making them less messy to apply than oils. They also are an easy and approachable way to introduce newbies to the medicinal properties of herbs.
