I seem to be working quite late these days ♥ I made a big batch of moringa pomade and posted the link on our Facebook fanpage around midnight on Thursday so it was really nice to receive this message this afternoon
Did i tell you how much i love the moringa pomade? I love love love it! I have to say I hate picking a favorite between the three hair butters/pomades but the!! I am not sure which ingredient is responsible for defining the hair so much .. and the scent of palm[kernel] oil...yummy!! just had to tell you that!!!
I hope I have made enough to get your hair all nice and soft with a little shine :) Read more about this handmade natural moringa pomade via our site

When I introduced this hair butter in June 2009, I never knew it would affect my sleep ;)
I love my job but then I also love my sleep. I am writing this feeling like a zombie as I stayed up all night to make this fresh batch of tucuma hair butter. At least I know it would be worth the lack of my beauty sleep as some thirsty hair strands are waiting to be moisturised.

Grab your jar and get your hair pampered

It has been a very long day but then staring at these cuties make me very proud. Say hello to Pasuca & Mungala - just be nice to them as they have traveled a very long distance to get here. This is the fruit of our labour in Ghana where I worked with a great community spirit to get these made. It was fun stirring the big cauldron especially when some of the oils had been sent over from Uganda & Swaziland. Find out more of these soaps via our site

Ok, I am referring to our gorgeous rosemary leave-in conditioner. Fresh batch now available in new packaging. We have now decided to opt for a jar rather than the lotion pump to make it easier in moisturising those curls and helping with a little gloss on your crowning glory.

Ah, but do not wait too long as there is a special 10% discount valid till midnight of 12th July 2010.

The birds are tweeting, the air is calm and I can just about see the clouds through the oak trees. There is a mix of sweet, floral & herbaceous scent lingering as I type. Why? Well, I am excited to introduce 4 new essential oils into our range.

* Madagascar vanilla in coconut
* Egyptian geranium
* Caribbean bay
* Guatemalan lemongrass
Pop by our online store and start blending a spoonful of that with a drop of this.

We are nuts about sheabutter here at Sheabutter Cottage. We like to break boundaries with this wonderful natural ingredient in its pure form and can now offer you the ground shea kernel for gentle exfoliation.
Available in 50g pouches in slightly coarse or fine texture, you can grab one or two for your soaps or face masks via our online store

I have spent the last few days trying to edit video clips of my trip to Ghana. Some people thought I was going on a holiday to a very warm country close to my heart. Well, the latter was true but it was all hard work with no lazying around. At least, I got the chance to meet some amazing people and survived working alongside another workaholic. Hope you enjoy these two videos.
