                                      Kokum Butter

                                               (posted 7/11)

Kokum Butter is hard and brittle like Cocoa Butter, but melts faster than Cocoa Butter. It's white and unscented like Mango Butter, but it's harder than Mango Butter. It's non-comedogenic and won't clog your pores! It's also vegan and gluten free! Kokum Butter is extracted from the seeds of the fruit of an Indian tree called Garcinia Indica.

Here are some Do It Yourself tips when using Kokum Butter! 

Make an easy balm: 2 oz. beeswax + 2 oz. Kokum Butter + 2 oz. apricot oil + 12 drops of essentail oils.

Whip it into a moisturizing Body Butter: 2 oz Kokum Butter + 4 oz. Shea Butter + 4 oz. jojoba oil + 20 drops of essentail oils.

Experiment with it in your Cold Processed Soap: Use 5-10% of Kokum Butter to create a firm soap.

Make an Early Morning Health Tonic:

Easily the most popular way to integrate ACV into your daily health routine is to drink it first thing in the morning.

Simple Tricks to keep you on track!

1. Mix up your ACV health tonic the night before and leave it on your nightstand so there's no excuse to avoid drinking it when you wake up!
2. Add a little honey!
3. Take a tablespoon in the morning and another before your heaviest meal to stimulate your metabolism!
