With so many misleading and harmful ingredients in sunscreen these days, we love to make our own, as an alternative to over-the-counter products. Shea Butter nourishes, soothes, and moisturizes your skin while it’s exposed to the sun.
Melt shea butter and oils in a pan on low heat. Add zinc oxide and blend well. Store in airtight container for up to 3 months. Optional: Add essential oils for aromatherapy, such as soothing lavendar or cooling peppermint.
In the village of Diama, Senegal, a small shack houses a rudimentary medical center where residents of five surrounding villages seek medical treatment. The people of Diama have asked for our help to build an adequate medical center and improve access to health care, from childbirth to disease prevention.
Join us today to help build a medical center that will improve the lives of so many in the region where our baskets are woven.
