Shea Butter, Compost Making Chart & Fall Gardening Tip

100% Pure Shea Butter

Lavender Shea Butter

Fall is the start of our prime Shea butter shipping season! 

This year our promotion is a little different due to supply challenges. You see, the finest, highest quality Shea butter is currently produced in Burkina Faso in Western Africa.

Our supplier works very closely with several small villages that still hand harvest and process the Shea nuts into the healing and moisturizing cream treasured by the Queen of Sheba. In this way, he is able to pay a premium to the women who produce this in the traditional way – by hand – without any chemicals or excessive heat that destroys the healing properties while keeping the highest quality, texture and consistency intact.

This year there has been a long period of civil unrest, resulting in a recent coup, preventing the transport of the Shea butter to waiting cargo ships. As a result, we have a limited quantity of our famous 100% pure Shea butter this season. The stocks our supplier has is all that is available until another shipment can be made, which may not happen until next year.

With this in mind, if you order two of the same kind you will receive a 5% discount, and 10% off with three or more of the same kind.

As a special “Thank You”, with every order of 100% pure Shea Butter we will include a free packet of seed

Learn what makes our Shea butter so much superior to what you usually find in the stores in Shea Butter – Healing and Moisturizing Miracle.

Fall Gardening Tips

As fall is in the air and nighttime temperatures drop, make sure to frost-proof your garden irrigation or drip system by turning them off at night or completely disconnecting and draining them, depending on how cold it is getting and if your garden is done for the season.

A little bit of proactivity now will save lots of time and equipment replacement later!
