The key to beautiful hydrated skin...

Moisture saving Shea Butter is the main ingredient in Ella Mae's Seventh Child's Hair and Body Butters. But did you know that Shea butter is actually a great sealant? That's why I recommend using Number 7 Essentials Be Well Oil after showering or shampooing but BEFORE Using the Shea Body Butter! Using Shea Butters before moisturizing may make certain skin and hair types more vulnerable to dryness because it's harder for moisture to penetrate it.

My regimen once or twice a week:

After showering exfoliate using a liberal amount of On~Nee Raw Honey Body Scrub to the entire body paying close attention to areas of concern... elbows, knees and heels of the feet. Rinse remaining scrub away under warm water. You will feel the jojoba and essential oils on the skin but this is okay! Most of the oils will penetrate into the skin while you're toweling off.

Apply a small amount of 7 Essentials Be Well Oil while skin is still warm, slightly damp and pores are wider from the steam of your shower, this allows greater absorption. Massage excess into skin.

When needed, use a small amount of Ella Mae's Seventh Child's Body Butter in the palm of your hand. Rub hands together to warm and soften the Shea butter. The heat of your hands also releases the therapeutic aroma and benefits of the essential oils in all three products.
The Shea butter helps to seal in the moisture and beneficial essential oils. You'll love the way your skin looks and feels!

I recommend this regimen once or twice a week before getting into bed. Honestly, you may not always need the Shea butter. The oils in the On~Nee Raw Honey Scrub and the 7 Essentials Be Well Oil may be all that's needed, especially in the warmer months when the skins sebum production is higher.

If you are one of my au`natural diva's and are using the Shea Butter as a hair treatment( My relaxed diva's can use small amounts of Ella Mae's Hair and Body Butters and 7 Essential Oil on your hair too!) I also recommend using the 7 Essential Oil before applying a small amount of Butter to your hair. Again, this seals in moisture and the beneficial essentials oils and a little goes a long way!

Also... A word of caution to those of you with nut allergies... Shea Butter Does come from the Karite Nut! If you are concerned you might have a reaction to any product containing Shea please test a small area of skin before using larger amounts!

As Always... Be You ... Live You... Love You!
