Recently, I got two really awesome products to review. I have racked my brain on how to review these products separately, but cannot find a good way. So, I decided to combined them and share a recipe that everyone could use.
First though, let me tell you a little about the products.
Tea Tree oil comes from the Melaleuca alternifolia or the melaleuca tree or tea tree. These are bushy trees that grow in Australia. The oil has many uses, I know I've used it a lot for cloth diapers and for my dog's skin condition. You have to be very careful because tea tree oil can be toxic if taken orally.
Apothecary Extracts has gone above and beyond to make sure you are getting 100% pure tea tree oil at pharmaceutical grade. They have had the oil tested by an independent lab so they know you are only getting the best.
Shea butter comes from a nut that grows on the Karite tree in Africa. There are many benefits to your skin and hair since it contains so many vitamins.
The raw organic ivory shea butter that is sold by Beauty By Shea on Amazon, is a fair trade product that comes from Ghana. It is doubled filtered, once in Ghana and once here in the US so they can make sure you get the finest product available.
Beauty By Shea is also letting me giveaway one pound of raw organic ivory shea butter. You can find the giveaway widget below the recipe.
