Luscious Lavender Body Lotion and Butter
At Gaia's Garden Bath and Botanica we are honored to be known as one of the finest producers of luxurious body butters, lotions and creams.
Our Luscious Lavender Body Lotion and Butter is made from organic food-grade oils that nourish and absorb completely into the skin. Most lotions are made from petroleum based mineral oils and sit on top of the skin leaving a greasy feel. Our bodies know how to absorb food for nourishment so our Luscious Lavender Lotion absorbs into the deepest layers of the skin to nourish, repair and moisturize skin at a deep level.
We start with
*Rose Hydrosol (Rose Water) to nourish and hydrate and soothe irritated skin
Next we blend in Organic food-grade oils:
*Coconut: Studies on individuals with dry skin show that coconut oil can improve the moisture and lipid content of the skin. It also has a softening affect on skin. The Lauric Acid in Coconut Oil Can Kill Bacteria, Viruses and Fungi, Helping to Stave Off Infections.Lauric Acid has been shown to kill the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus (a very dangerous pathogen) and the yeast Candida Albicans, a common source of yeast infections in humans. It can help sooth psoriasis or eczema. Coconut has been used for wound healing since time immemorial. Three of the identified mechanisms behind these healing effects are its ability to accelerate re-epithelialization, improve antioxidant enzyme activity, and stimulate higher collagen cross-linking within the tissue being repaired.
*Palm Oil is famous for healing skin and soothing rashes, eczema and psoriasis. (we use only palm oil suppliers which adhere to strict environmental sustainability programs. The harvester and manufacturer of the palm oil we use adheres to highly detailed sustainable harvesting protocols with oversight from state and third party environmental programs including EcoSocial, and with the assistance of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.)
*Castor provides a rich feeling to creams and is famed for smoothing wrinkles and fading age spots.
*Aloe Butter has excellent moisturizing properties and aids with the re-hydration of dry chapped skin. It is used in formulations to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and sun burn. It helps to lock moisture in the skin.
* Lavender essential oil has been used for treating burns and other skin irritations since French chemist and scholar René-Maurice Gattefossé discovered the virtues of the essential oil of lavender when in 1910 he used the oil on bad burns he received during an accident in his laboratory. Here is his account of the accident, translated from French, "The external application of small quantities of essences rapidly stops the spread of gangrenous sores. In my personal experience, after a laboratory explosion covered me with burning substances which I extinguished by rolling on a grassy lawn, both my hands were covered with a rapidly developing gas gangrene. Just one rinse with lavender essence stopped "the gasification of the tissue". This treatment was followed by profuse sweating, and healing began the next day (July 1910)." Subsequently he collaborated with a number of doctors who treated French soldiers for war wounds using lavender and other essential oils.
