Michel founded the company two years ago while suffering from a horrible bout of shingles on her scalp, face, and body. After extensive research on natural remedies, she combined the wonderful anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties of raw Shea butter and oil with organic, virgin coconut and/or grapeseed oils and added the healing powers of pure, therapeutic grade Essential Oils. She made numerous butters, creams, oils, and spray mixtures with these ingredients and was able to drastically reduce the pain and shorten the duration of the shingles as well as the subsequent postherpetic neuralgia.
 
Her Shea-based Essential Oil blends are available in the following formats:
– Shea Butter-based Hair & Body Butters or Muscle & Joint Cream
–  Shea Oil-based Hair & Body Oils or Muscle & Joint Oil
–  Shea Butter-based Exfoliating Body Scrubs
–  Bath Soaking Salts
