As a woman in her mid-50s, I am always on the hunt for high quality, natural skin care products that will replenish the oils my body so craves. Your Lavender Geranium Dead Sea Scrub makes my entire body gloriously soft. I had been purchasing raw unrefined shea butter for my skin because I could never find a product that would moisturize my skin better, until I discovered your Lavender Body Butter. It’s the perfect mixture of unrefined shea butter and other oils for a smooth and creamy mixture that bathes and relieves my dry skin. I sound like a commercial don’t I? But I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS!! And I have used a lot of skin products in my day.

I love my Elka Herbals Dead Sea Salt Scrub, in fact, I consider it spiritual medicine for my body. I’m quite empathetic and tend to “pick up” energies from others. When I use the Dead Sea Body Scrub, my skin not only feels great, but I feel energetically refreshed and cleansed as well. Consider it aura maintenance that leaves your skin beautifully soft!
