If she’s a sucker for luxurious body confections that drench her skin with moisture, she probably already
knows about the wonders of shea butter. Easily one of nature’s most miraculous gifts, shea butter is derived
from the shea tree nut. This natural wonder isn’t just a body treatment, either – it’s glorified for everything
from its hair-smoothing prowess to its burn-healing potential. Clearly, it’s good stuff, and anyone on
the receiving end of a shea butter-themed gift would be lucky, indeed. Cue this selection of nourishing
products that are as indulgent as they are restorative.
Lavender Rosemary Shea Butter Cream
Shea butter? Awesome. Its scent? Not always the best. This Forest House Herbals Shea Butter Tin does a marvelous job of rectifying matters by infusing the rich emollient with the calming scent of lavender rosemary. Bonus: It also contains vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that may help heal wounds and promote healthier skin.
