My goal at the Butter made Shop is to create decadent bath and body products with high quality ingredients. Those ingredients include natural butters, oils and botanicals.
My journey to making my own bath and body products began during my second semester of law school when I suddenly had a horrible eczema attack that included patches all over my body. The itching (and scratching) was unbearable. I went to a doctor and he gave me a huge tub of cream. Every single ingredient was at least 13 letters long. But it worked! :-/
The eczema went away, when I used the cream, but it resurfaced a couple years later. This time, I took to the internet to look for natural remedies, and the rest is history.
During that journey, I rediscovered my love and knowledge for natural remedies while growing up in Liberia. I suddenly remember the Aloe plant we had in our yard that we used to soothe itches, or the Hibiscus plant we soaked in water to get a deep read juice, and finally, the palm nuts we harvested to get rich palm oil - which we mixed with lye to make soap.
Over the last 10 years, I've enjoyed creating my own bath and body products that have nourished my skin (and that of my many friends and family members). And now, I'm so happy to share that passion and goodness with you.
I named called the shop Butter Made because I enjoy using butters (Shea, Mango, Cocoa, Avocado, Cupuacu, and Murumuru are my favs!) in each of my recipes to make my skin look and feel beautiful.
I thoroughly enjoy discovering new ways to use the same skin-loving ingredients, formulating recipes, and handcrafting luxurious products that will end up in your hands.
