My favorite thing today... 100% shea butter.

I first discovered this when i bought some from a friend who bought some from a guy who sold it at a flea market. I know, sounds legit. But it really is the best thing since sliced bread. Then I ran out! Ugh. BUT I found a lady who sells it at the market in Atlantic Station and I flipped out, I was so excited! I also found out you can buy it online. Ha!

The reason for my excitement about this stuff is #1 It's completely natural. So natural that you could eat it. Some people have said that when taken orally it has cured a cold. I've never tried that but... be my guest. #2 It ACTUALLY gets rid of stretch marks! I'm not kidding. It's natural makeup is found in human skin so rubbing it on is healing and rejuvenating. After I had Ezra I used it on my post-baby belly and my stretch marks were almost completely invisible. Now that I'm using it again after having Kingston they are disappearing again.

It is extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree which begins to bear fruit after about 15 years and can take up to 30 years to bear a quality crop of nuts with a high content of irremovable fatty acid. It is this irremovable fatty acid that gives shea butter its unique healing properties.

It works for me, hopefully it will work for you!
