Shea Butter

Made from the nut of the African Shea Tree, 100% Whipped Shea Butter. Shea butter has been whipped to a very soft and creamy texture that is easier to apply.


Shea Butter is superior to other butters because it contains a rich amount of fatty acid. This fatty acid is crucial for optimum moisture in the skin. Shea butter also provides all essential vitamins that help make skin look and feel smoother, softer, more vibrant. It nourishes and protects against harsh weather and sun. It heals wounds and repairs damaged skin by stimulating cellular activity. Also perfect for conditioning the hair

White Ceremonial Sage - 4 oz

white ceremonial sage - 4 oz.

White Ceremonial Sage

White ceremonial sage has been used for centuries by Native Americans for its natural healing properties. The art of ‘saging’ has been passed from the Native Americans to others around the world to purify the home and rid the air of negative energies. Throughout history people have used white sage to purify a home after an illness has passed through. If you put a few white sage leaves in a bowl and light the ends of the leaves, a fragrant white smoke will fill the air with its aromatherapeutic values. The fragrance alone is known to calm the senses, relieve stress and depression and help reduce fever and nausea. Grown in Southwestern U.S.A.

The Many Ways You Can Use White Ceremonial Sage:

Saging – This is the most popular way to use white sage. Either put a few leaves in a heat-proof bowl and light the tips of the leaves, or tie a bundle of leaves together with twine and create a ‘wand’ out of the sage. Pass through your house spreading the white smoke into every corner, clearing the air of impurities and filling your home with the fragrant smell. Keep your windows open! Your house will get very smoky. You can also ‘sage’ a person by tracing their outline with the smoke of the sage. This is a very common practice among Native American health practitioners.

White Sage Tea – Drink the healing properties of white sage easily in tea. Take 4 or 5 sage leaves, and crush them into a cup of boiling water. Let it stand for minutes, then strain out the leaves (you can also use a tea strainer for this to make it easier). Drinking the tea helps to relieve congestion, sinus infections, arthritis, PMS cramps, and constipation. Served lukewarm it can bring soothing relief to a sore throat. Served cold it can be used as a stomach tonic.

Take a Soothing White Sage Bath – Take a handful of white sage leaves and crush them into your running bath water. Relax in the bath water for at least ten minutes, letting the therapeutic qualities of the sage relieve sinus congestion, reduce fever, and calm worn-out senses. White sage is also great for calming down irritated, rashy skin. White sage is also a natural deodorant and will leave you smelling fresh after your bath.

Enjoy a White Sage Steam – Crush a handful of white sage leaves into a pot of boiling water. Remove the pot from the heat and lean over the steam, draping your head with a towel to trap the steam. The properties of the sage will infiltrate your pores and your breath to help open the sinuses, clearing congestion, while helping ease nausea, and headache. You can also use this to help calm irritated, itchy skin.

White Sage Potpourri – Make a small bouquet of white sage leaves and hang it in your closet to ward away moths and to give your clothing a fresh, herbaceous scent. You can put white sage anywhere to give the room a soothing, fresh smell and to eliminate odors.

Pure and Natural Chebe Oil made with authentic Chebe powder from The Republic of Chad in Central Africa.

Chebe (pronounced shea bay) powder is a traditional hair growth remedy from Chad, Africa. It has been used for generations to increase hair growth and prevent breakage. All natural, and only available from plants in this remote part of Africa. 

Chebe is the secret to very long hair in Chad. In Chad women’s hair often goes past their waist. For African women elsewhere, this length of hair is almost never seen. Moisturizes hair and prevents breakage. The Basara women in Chad are known to have very long hair.

Also de-tangles easily making hair easier to manage. Chebe oil can be used daily.

Ingredients:

Ostrich Oil, Olive Oil, Chebe, Rosemary, Peppermint & Lavender Essential Oils.

How Chebe is made

The Chebe seeds, mahellaba soubianne, and cloves are individually grilled and separated. Then individually ground into a fine powder in a sort of mortar and pestle set up and those ground powders are also separated.

The Hair Grease and scented oil are mixed together in a separate container and set aside

The powders are then combined in the same mortar and mixed together, a few spoonfuls of the oil/grease mixture are added in and the container set aside, then that is all mixed together giving the once fine powder a texture closer to soil.

The Missic and Resin are then ground together into a powder and added to the "soil-like" mixture..

How to use:

Pour a reasonable amount of the Chebe hair oil into your hands. Rub the oil into your hair. Continue to work the oil into your hair by massaging the oil onto your hair with your hands.

That’s it. Chebe oil gives you the easiest and fastest way to get most of the benefits of a full treatment while you are on the go.
