Traditionally used by African women to protect their beautiful skin.

Traditionally used by African women to protect their beautiful skin.

In our 3 previous articles, we mentioned several things that you can do to get your skin ready for summer. Diet, exercise, vitamins and good skincare products are all part of the process. While taking all of these into consideration, we’d like to share some tidbits on a few of the products that MatsiMela Home Spa has formulated to assist you in taking really good care of your skin.

Baobab Range
The Baobab tree is fondly called the “Tree of Life”. The kernels contained within the Baobab fruit pod yield a rich, golden scented oil traditionally used by African women to protect their beautiful skin against the harsh African savannah environment. The oil has strong natural moisturizing properties and is commonly used to both prevent and cure dry skin conditions of the face and body. Baobab oil contains omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids that contribute towards the maintenance of healthy skin. The lavender oil included in the Baobab Range may relieve pain from tension headaches, anxiety, depression and emotional stress. Lavender essential oil is also known to assist restful sleep. Its antiseptic and anti-fungal properties make it a sensible addition to any body care regime.
