A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Nitsa and Scott of Sun Potion and taking their Potions 101 class. It was one of those situations that were completely in-sync because I had been endlessly researching their company for months, figuring out what tonic herbs and superfoods I was going to incorporate into my diet. After meeting them and feeling the transformational effects first hand, I have been in love (and completely obsessed to be honest) with everything they do. I am slowly acquiring all of their fantastic and life-changing products, which I have been using daily so expect more on this soon!
Towards the end of the evening, Nitsa made a nourishing face mask for us all to try and she used their shea butter as the base. I had been looking forward to purchasing the butter, knowing they are one of the few companies that use 100% unrefined and wildcrafted shea. Experiencing it first hand completely sealed the deal.
Sun Potion sources the shea butter from the nut of the Shea-Karite tree which grows in the tropical regions of Africa. The trees take at least 15 years to produce shea, which is then stored, dried and crushed. It is 100% chemical free and although meant for external use, safe to eat. It has been used for centuries as a protective, anti-aging, beauty remedy by African women.
I have been mixing it with a few drops of my favorite oil of the moment until it is melted and rubbing it on my face and body every day. The results are exciting and noticeable. While it has been a great experiment as my skin was incredibly dry due to the harsh winter weather, I plan on using it all year long. Some of the benefits of shea butter include:
• Balances skin pH
• Naturally rich in vitamins A, E & F
• Allows skin to breathe
• Deeply moisturizing
• Reduces inflammation
• Aids in skins natural collagen production
• Strengthens and regenerates skin
• Mild natural sunscreen
• Assist in healing conditions such as: sun damage, blemishes, eczema, severe dryness, skin allergies & more
This will definitely be a staple product in my holistic beauty cabinet. I am incredibly grateful to have Sun Potion in my life and to be able to share all that I am learning and experiencing.
