Body Butter - Lemongrass - 3 oz

3 oz tin:  

We can't even begin to list all of the harmful ingredients in most body butters out there - from parabens and synthetic colors, to fragrances and... formaldehyde? That's enough to make us stop in our tracks!

Hailing from India, the unique kokum(pronounced ko-koom) butter offers numerous rock star qualities to our body butter. Kokum is very high in antioxidants, regenerates skin cells, and is even known to heal ulcers (rub it directly on the area where the ulcer is). Along with coconut oil and shea butter we have a recipe that will make you glow from head to toe.

Lemongrass has a vibrant citrus scent, and many people also say it smells earthy.  It is well known in Southeastern Asian cooking, where this thready grass is often used because of it’s yummy taste and help to the digestive system.  

Lemongrass contains many healing properties.  It helps to treat acne and oily skin.  It purifies the skin by helping to remove toxins.  Lemongrass has antioxidants which neutralize those free radicals in your body.  Free radicals cause aging -- and we don’t want those hanging around! 

Lemongrass contains something called limonene, which can help to lighten and tighten the skin, and can also reduce scars, such as acne.  Lemongrass can help menstrual cramps, help relieve headaches, and is a natural fever reducer.  It can help to reduce redness, swelling and itching, it is great at helping to relieve muscle pain and spasms and is overall healing to the skin, which is why it is absolutely perfect in our Body Butter! 

Lemongrass can kill bacteria and can help reduce stress and anxiety.  It is overall an immune system booster.  We also use it in our Foaming Hand Wash as we cannot get enough of this scent!  Lemongrass for the win!
