    Celebrate! Pain Relief Oil (and Diffuser Blend!)

    by Andrea Butje on December 18, 2017

    If Peppermint essential oil had a “day job,” it would probably be an event planner.

    Peppermint loves good times! Just open a bottle of the essential oil, inhale the aroma of the cap, and you’ll see what I mean—even the scent of Peppermint is bright and refreshing. Peppermint essential oil is an excellent choice for energy, mental sharpness, concentration, inspiration, and feeling positive.

    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.
