Why I’m Great
Marshmallow Root: The genus name comes from a Greek work meaning “to heal”. This herb contains some germ-fighting and inflammation-relieving phyto-chemicals. It also contains compounds that help stimulate the immune system slightly. Marshmallow Root is known to help with bruises, chafing, sores and wounds… which is beneficial for the nursing mama!
Calendula Flower: is a herb long used through Europe and the Americas for wound healing and ulcer treatments, Calendula is known for its amazing healing properties. The phyto-chemicals in these flowers opposes fungi, bacteria, viruses and inflammation. Calendula also excite the white blood ells in the immune system to fight microbial invaders with a little more vigor. It is good for treating skin problems of all kinds, especially cuts, scrapes, bruises and minor wounds.
Organic Coconut oil: helps promote healthy skin regeneration, fight off infection & thrush and moisturises the skin.
Beeswax: Helps to keep needed moisture in the skin, promotes new cell growth and protects the skin.
Organic Shea Butter: moisturises, protects, strengthens and regenerates the skin. It is great for minor cuts and cracks in the skin.
Please Note : The little granules that sometimes happen are perfectly natural and normal, and doesn’t mean that your product has gone bad or that something’s wrong with it. This is a common occurrence with natural, unrefined Shea butter, and sometimes, cocoa butter.
Shea butter is made of several different types of fat. When temperatures change, the Shea melts, and then the like-fats all congregate and hang out together by the chip bowl. When the butter cools again, they crystallize, or harden, at different speeds, causing little granules to form. The more the butter melts and re-hardens, the more granules you get.
Keep in mind that Shea butter melts at the same temperature as human skin (one reason why we love it so much), which also means that sunshine, travel, humidity, sitting close to a heater, or being in a hot bathroom can all cause fluctuations in the texture of the balm.
