This one is a favorite for many reasons, and for me, it’s the alluring aroma and sensuous feeling that makes me crave more. The ingredients are: organic raw unrefined cacao butter, unrefined organic coconut oil, infused organic olive oil (w/ alfalfa, burdock root, comfrey leaf, horsetail, nettle leaf, noni, oatstraw, and red clover blossoms), organic sweet almond oil, organic jojoba oil, vitamin E, angstrom sulfur (beauty mineral), essential oils of jasmine, neroli and ylang ylang, and marine phytoplankton (algae extract). Below, I refer to one of David Wolfe’s books several times because he just always gets it right! Here’s what all these pure, raw ingredients can do for you~
Raw Cacao butter – To quote from Eating for Beauty (David Wolfe’s work of art), ‘cacao butter can be used over every part of your skin. In fact, nothing is better for one’s lips and the delicate areas around the eyes where pores are small’. Who doesn’t want to put chocolate right onto their skin? Cacao butter is super nutritious, moisturizing, and delicious. Balanced with the right pure essential oils, the smell of bliss will carry with you all day.
Coconut Oil ~ Coconut oil is used for dry, rough, sensitive, and wrinkled skin because it’s so mild and gentle. ‘It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones. Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young and healthy and relatively free from infections’ (Eating for Beauty). You reap the bonus benefits of coconut oil being anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal. I suggest checking out ‘The Coconut Oil Miracle‘ by Bruce Fife for all that you ever wanted to know about this healing oil.
Olive Oil – Loaded with the skin replenishing omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, it’s also high in antioxidant vitamin A and E, and abundant in minerals. ‘Olive oil is a soothing fat for damaged and dry skin, hair, and nails’ (Eating for Beauty). It is helpful for repairing dry patches and the dreaded stretch marks.
Sweet Almond Oil – This lightweight oil penetrates the skin and absorbs well; it’s quite nutritious with a high fatty acid content, and excellent for all skin types, especially dry, inflamed, or itchy skin.
Jojoba Oil – Chemically similar to our own sebum (compatible with human skin), jojoba penetrates easily, leaving no oily residue. Jojoba oil is the perfect choice for inflamed skin, eczema, psoriasis, rough or dry skin, and acne.
Angstrom Sulfur – ‘Sulfur is the foundational mineral of all beauty. It produces a flame-like tint in the skin. It creates a subtle lustre and sulfur-residue foods make the complexion radiant. Sulfur is able to make our hair, nails, and skin shine with radiance. Sulfur truly is the most beautifying of all food nutrients, and the best cosmetic in the world’ (Eating for Beauty).
Marine Phytoplankton – This supercharged, raw, live, enzyme-active, ocean based micro-algae is abundant in naturally produced vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, life force (direct from the Sun), chlorophyll, and essential fatty acids (3, 6, 7, 9). By putting this into my Body Silks, you absorb these benefits when applied to your skin. I had the fortunate opportunity to be on the Elements for Life conference call with the man who is responsible for doing the research and getting this algae into the consumer market. Many consider it the greatest food on this planet .. the original source of all omega fatty acids (more than fish; this is what fish eat to get their omegas!), DHA, infused Sun energy, chlorophyll, B12, and is surprisingly, a complete protein. It has it all!
In a future post, I’ll go into great detail about the 8 herbal blend (their properties, benefits, actions) that make up my olive oil infusion. If you want to lather your body with a luscious silky body butter that will have you yearning for more just from the aroma, this one is for you. It’s alluring, sassy, sexy, uplifting, and stress-relieving – who doesn’t want all that?!
