Organic Body Butter: Vashti
I named this scent "Vashti" to capture a bit of the exotic tale of a Persian queen. One of the world's first recorded feminists, she put her dignity above her husband, the king's, command that she dance for his friends. When I found out that an ancestress of mine had been named for her, I knew I had to create a scent to honor them.
The scent is a spicy floral with notes of geranium and citrus. Feminine, but with an edge.
This ultra-rich body butter is made from organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, avocado oil, evening primrose extract, beeswax, and essential oils. It melts with your body heat and sinks in quickly.
I originally formulated this as a butter for winter skin, to be applied after a warm shower to hold moisture next to your skin all day, even in the driest weather. Of course, it's also great for summer!
Ingredients: Organic shea butter, avocado oil, organic cocoa butter, beeswax, fractionated coconut oil, evening primrose extract, tocopherol, essential oil blend.
