Do you like to support small, local companies while taking care of your body? If so, Anlea Essentials offers exactly what you’re looking for. The company is a one-woman operation, utilizing pure organic ingredients to produce products that smell as wonderful as they feel. The founder utilizes raw shea butter in many of her recipes. Shea butter is one of the most luxurious substances a person can spread on her skin, and you will feel it working its magic for hours! She enhances the luxury with the addition of organic oils, including coconut, jojoba, and avocado.
The website, www.anleaessentials.com is straightforward and a cinch to navigate. Products are arranged in a variety of ways — alphabetically, price, and by popularity. One of our current favorites is the Eucalyptus and Peppermint Body Butter ($20.00). This creamy, soothing product comes in a sturdy 8-ounce container. It spreads evenly across the body, coating it with luscious shea butter. The eucalyptus/peppermint mixture has a lively medicinal scent, which invigorates the senses and soothes tired muscles. This product also stimulates the brain and reduces stress. We think everyone could use a bit of stress reduction, and we’re certain you’re worth it.
The Jasmine and Sandalwood Exfoliating Body Scrub ($20.00) is also packaged in an eight-ounce container. The sensual mixture exfoliates impurities from the body while facilitating clarity and calmness. The jasmine and sandalwood combine with a base of coconut, jojoba, castor and olive oils to create a product that will leave your body tingling, yet relaxed. A small amount of this product is all you need to experience its cleansing and aromatic benefits.
Men can enjoy some of these offerings, as well. If the guy in your life has a mustache, he’ll appreciate the Husband Material Beard and Stache Balm ($10.00). This product boasts a light masculine scent. Like many of Anlea’s products, the balm is manufactured with a shea butter base. A dynamic combination of sweet almond, jojoba, and avocado oils creates a smooth but slick texture to keep errant hairs in place.
When you purchase a product from Anlea Essentials, you are supporting a small company based in the Pacific Northwest, run by a woman who has a passion for skin care. Products are hand-mixed in small batches and made with meticulous attention to detail. Note: Since honey is used in some of the recipes, this is not a vegan product. However, none of the products are tested on animals. Pick up some today and experience the luxury of shea butter!
