4oz / 120ml
This is such a luxurious sugar scrub! I had a friend ask me why I would ever rub animal fat on my body... well, let me explain. This tallow (rendered from grass fed organically raised beef) is similar to our own fat and easily absorbed. This the oldest form of body moisturizer! Even before infused oils anointed the hands and feet of the wealthy, there was tallow.
Tallow is the rendered fat from the meat and organs of a red meat animal. It is loaded with all the beneficial nutrients that our skin needs to repair itself. Compared to plant based oils, tallow provides the skin with intense moisture, rather than just sealing in moisture. When sourced from healthy, grass fed cattle, it is loaded with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Essentially, the best moisturizer one can use.
We've combined our locally sourced tallow with a touch of shea butter and jojoba oil and mixed that up with powdered herbs and cane sugar. I rendered down this tallow several times with aromatic herbs to soften the natural aroma of the tallow and combined with fragrant peony, chocolate mint, chamomile and nettle all gathered from my gardens.
Peony is a wonderful flower with astringent and cooling properties. Lovely and fragrant, peony is a great addition to skin products.
Chocolate Mint is fragrant and stimulating to the blood and skin. It is used often to soothe the nervous system, boost the immune system, stimulate movement and flow through the body and more.
Hibiscus is loaded with vitamin C and has long been used to exfoliate and brighten the skin. It is said to be a wonderful aid in maintaining a youthful glow.
Chamomile is anti-inflammatory and a wonderful soother for irritated or damaged skin. It is also a great nervous system support.
Nettles are deeply nourishing and loaded with wonderful vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body and used to boost skin, hair and bone health.
Shea Butter is a wonderful moisturizer that keeps water from evaporating from your skin. Loaded with vitamins and are often used to treat dry, flaky or rashy skin.
Tallow is the fat rendered from red meat and is absolutely packed with all the nutrients your skin needs to be astonishingly healthy, including vitamin E, CLA, omega-3s, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamins D and K, stearic and oleic acids, and a whole bunch more. It is rich in antioxidants and is anti-inflammatory and easily absorbed. Often used in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, dry and/or damaged skin. We source our grass fed tallow from Good Family Farms in Meaford, Ontario.
