This listing is for the classic Winterblend cream enhanced with either pure Lavender Essential Oil, Tea Tree, Rosemary or a combination. Choose from the drop down list. If you have a favorite essential oil we don't have listed just message.
Lavender has long been known to be a soothing aromatherapy scent, but it is also a very calming and soothing ingredient for skin. Because of the natural anti-bacterial / anti-fungal properties it has, it can be very helpful for acne sufferers. It also provides some relief from the symptoms of Rosacea.
Tea Tree is a very potent, astringent oil that has a medicinal scent. Very clean and quite anti-bacterial and Anti-Fungal too. The Lavender - Tea Tree is a wonderfully refreshing (and strong) combination if you have oily and troubled skin.
Please note: Our cream version is made with Lavender Essential oil - but NO fragrance oils so it is safe and gentle for facial skin. For some unknown reason any commercial manufacturers put "fragrance" in their facial products - not a good thing - it can be, and often is irritating to delicate facial tissue. Always choose a "Fragrance Free option unless it contains a safe Essential Oil like Lavender or Tea Tree.
For a stronger scented body lotion try our Lavender "Scented" lotion in the squeeze bottle that had a combination of Lavender fragrance plus the essential oil for more of a Lavender fragrance kick.
Our popular Winterblend Cream is unmatched for moisturizing dry and sensitive skin. It is especially recommended as a very gentle facial moisturizer - perfect for those with even the most number of sensitivities.

Winterblend Shea Butter Cream made with raw, untreated Shea Butter and natural ingredients.
Absolutely no fragrances, essential oils or tints are added making it ideal for those with sensitivities to commercial ingredients. Ideal for babies - no excess additives to cause skin problems. We also don't fill our cream with artificial thickeners to make it seem richer, our cream is rich from the butters and oils - but doesn't feel sticky or oily and isn't super thick. Thick creams are not always very moisturizing - they have to have the right balance of moisture and oils to do the trick.
Our rich creams and lotions are made with Raw shea butter, emollient oils such as Sweet Almond, Avocado, Grapeseed, Evening Primrose, Camelina and the addition of high grade vitamin E. Our creams are considered 98% *natural - please see our *note below.
Raw shea is an excellent emollient that helps skin retain it's elasticity and moisture levels - while at the same time is very beneficial for skin conditions such as Eczema. I can personally vouch for it's effectiveness for this condition for myself and many, many family members and store customers, several of which had a debilitating cases.
Our raw shea butter comes to us directly from Ghana via a family run non-profit organization. This group goes to Ghana several times a year where they work with Doctors Without Borders. Last photo shows what the raw shea looks like - we also offer this ingredient for sale.
Winterblend is our popular moisturizing cream made with raw shea and rich oils. It is perfect for anyone with dry or sensitive skin as there are no fragrances, essential oils or colorants used.
We also offer this cream in the UNSCENTED type and in a slightly lighter "lotion" version in a flip-top tube - see other listings.
We also have several versions - they are the exact same formula but with one special ingredient added, see the list below.
With all my creams I recommend applying them to slightly moist skin to get the most benefit.
Just take care to never dip wet fingers into the cream. We will be including plastic spatulas will all jar sizes from now on - if you order a large jar please transfer some to a smaller container with a sterilized spoon (wash with alcohol and air dry) and keep your large jar uncontaminated.
Winterblend w/ Argan - Argan oil is a rich, silky golden oil that comes from Morrocco. It is an excellent **hair oil too (see note below). This addition makes the cream super thick and very good for mature skin.
Winterblend w/ Acai - Acai berry extract is a super antioxidant, it also makes the cream very thick and you can see the tiny purple speckles in the cream.
Winterblend w/ Lavender or other EOs - EO means Essential Oil and Lavender is one of the best. It is calming, cooling and especially good for skin troubled with breakouts.
We have two creams that we only sell in the summertime - Summerblend which is Winterblend with Aloe added and a Green Tea version. These will be available in June.
** You may have heard of "Morroccan Oil" brand for hair - that product actually has silcones added to it , so it is not pure Argan oil.
* We don't advocate the use of only Essential Oil natural preservatives in body products as they have not been proven to be a safe enough to guard against dangerous microbes. Please be aware any product containing water (even though it is distilled) needs an effective preservation system to keep it safe during use. Products which have no water content - like raw shea, salves, salts and balms are the exceptions.
