    Avo-Kombo Feel Better Butter

    by Andrea Butje on April 04, 2016

     

    One of my favorite natural carrier butters to use in body butter recipes for healing massage is kombo butter.

    Kombo butter has a deep reddish-brown color, and a distinctive nutty, earthy aroma. Its consistency is thick and oily, with granule-like bits throughout that melt when it’s warmed. (You can see the texture in this picture of kombo butter from Aromatics International.) It comes from West Central Africa, and is often called “African Nutmeg.”

    It’s good at soothing aching joints and sore muscles thanks to its high content of natural acids that reduce inflammation. I have known people who were so helped by this butter that they refused to leave home without their kombo blend!

    I’d like to share a recipe that might just become a “don’t leave home without it” blend for you.

    Hand Salve for Dry, Cracked Knuckles

    by Andrea Butje on December 21, 2015

    When you have dry, cracked knuckles, it can feel like you’re constantly applying moisturizer but not experiencing much benefit from it.

    I have a hand salve that can really help!

    You can apply this hand salve as often as you need throughout the day. Some people even layer it on thick before bed at night and wear gloves while they sleep, so their dry, cracked knuckles and nails will absorb as much of the healing components as possible.

    This recipe makes 7 oz (196 gm) of hand salve. You can make it in an 8 oz (240 ml) glass jar or in two 4 oz (120 ml) jars.
