Earth Day is an annual day where events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental. My motto is let “Earth Day” be an every day event. I LOVE to use the ingredients God has created for the earth to produce in my Bath & Body company, Silk Spa Creations. One of the products I created is my Shealoe Hair and Body Butter, made with moisturizing Shea Butter and Cooling Aloe Vera gel.
Shea butter is a natural butter. It is a creamy-colored fatty substance made from the nuts of the Karite nut-tree, that grows wild in the savannah regions of West and East Africa. Shea butter has many benefits, it nourishes the skin with Vitamins A, E and F.
Vitamins A and E maintains the skin and keep it smooth and healthy. It is particularly helpful for sun damaged skin and help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. It also improves skin conditions, including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis. Vitamin F acts as a protector and rejuvenator, soothing rough dry or chapped skin and helps soften dry or damaged hair.

The Aloe Vera is native to northern part of Africa. When fully grown the plant stands 60 to 90 cm high, and a mature leaf is 7 to 10 cm across.The lower leaf of the plant is used for medicinal purpose. When the lower leaf is sliced open, the gel obtained can be applied on the affected area of the skin. Aloe Vera gel has numerous skin, health and hair benefits.
Aloe Vera gel is a natural moisturizer because of the moisture content locked in it. This gel keeps the skin hydrated and increases its elasticity. It also provides oxygen to the skin which strengthens the skin tissue and keeps the skin healthy. It also moisturizes the skin without making the skin greasy, Its cooling, moisturizing properties make it perfect for oily, dry skin. Once applied, it releases natural vitamins and enzymes on the skin to produce a deep moisturizing effect that helps to treat dry and damage skin.
I LOVE these natural, from the earth ingredients. I used this body butter on my hair, both of my daughter’s hair and skin. My baby girl who is 7 months had eczema on her skin, once I used this on her, I had no more eczema flare ups on her skin! I LOVE this stuff! Try it out and see for yourself. I hope you enjoy your earth day, let me know what you did to enjoy God’s green earth.
