ABOUT SOME OF OUR HAND, FOOT & BODY BALM INGREDIENTS:
Organic Raw Shea Butter & Extract: Superfood for the skin. Deeply moisturizes, regenerates, stimulates collagen production (makes skin stronger, more supple, radiant and younger), fights wrinkles and fine lines, anti-inflammatory that heals psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, cuts and burns. Rich in essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E and D, provitamin A and allantoin.
Unrefined Natural Cocoa Butter: High in vitamin E which aids in skin repair and also high in anti-oxidants which protect skin from damaging toxins and give it anti-aging qualities. Cocoa butter is a remarkable emollient for the skin.
Organic Unrefined Cold Pressed Olive Oil: Stimulates cell repair and generates new cells for firmer, smoother skin. Packed with anti-aging vitamins and nutrients, Olive oil mimics the natural oil in your skin, absorbing quickly to nourish, heal and restore the skin and doesn't clog the pores. It also protects skin from premature aging with 3 major antioxidants: VITAMIN E: (restores skin smoothness and protects against ultraviolet light) 2. POLYPHENOLS: (help repair damaged skin and restore elasticity) 3. PHYTOSEROLS: (reduces irritation, helps with chapped, red skin, stops the slow-down of collagen production and encourages new collagen production).
Organic Cold Pressed Borage Seed Oil: Contains one of the highest levels of GLA (gamma linolenic acid) that soothes dry skin and sensitive skin, as well as for any inflammatory skin conditions. It is regenerative and firming, properties that help restore hydration and elasticity.
Organic Cold Pressed Jojoba Seed Oil: Comparable to sebum, a waxy substance secreted by the glands in the body that protects the skin from bacteria and helps it stay supple and soft. Jojoba oil behaves the same way as sebum and has anti-inflammatory and healing properties that help relieve dryness, flaking, itching, and related symptoms. In addition to holding in moisture, the oil’s natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties work to kill the organisms contributing to outbreaks as well as reduce swelling and redness and treating inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Jojoba may also boost cell division and growth, which speeds up the healing process and make the outbreak subside faster.
Organic Unrefined Cold Pressed Avocado Oil: Reduces wrinkles and aging. Contains anti-oxidant agents that help boost collagen in the top layer of the skin. Collagen increases skin strength and elasticity. Also high in sterolins, which help heal sun damage and scars. Emollient and ideal for dry, damaged and dehydrated skin and acts well for the rejuvenation of the skin. It is also rich in lecithin, a fatty acid that helps keep the skin soft and moisturized. Contains high levels of vitamins, especially Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
Organic Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil: Helps reduce inflammation in the skin, prevent future flare ups, help to fade scars and promote an overall more even and smoother skin texture.
Tea Tree Oil: Antibacterial and antifungal that kills bacteria without striping the skin. Helps acne for papules and pustules. Anti-inflammatory, beneficial for lessening redness and swelling. Scent is similar to eucalyptus.
Bulgarian Lavender Oil: Balancing and anti-inflammatory; regenerates healthy new skin cells, soothes acne, promotes cell growth to minimize scaring and regulates sebum production. Healing, cleansing and detoxifying; provides cells with new energy, gentle antiseptic for acne, burns, scars and open wounds.

CUSTOMER'S LOVE OUR BODY BALM:
"I believe that I'm becoming addicted to your products - but that's a good thing! Thank you for being a beacon of light out there. I keep being reminded to nurture myself. Your products fit the bill. I like that I no longer wash and run. Instead, I apply this, then apply that...very nurturing!" ~ Magda
"We were just talking about your Hand/Foot/Body Balm this morning...WE LOVE IT! Oh my gosh! For as many times as we wash our hands now and now with warm, dry weather, your products are saving our bacon! So thank you!!!" ~ Randy and family
"Hi Joan, I'm with a friend who's daughter has cracking hands with this cold weather and she was just told today to put steriods on it, but I want her to try your products before the steriods and she's willing to. I'm thinking of your Body Balm Stick and Restoring Elixir. (A day later...) I brought these to the family and helped the little girl put it on her hands this morning. When I started applying it she said, "it feels good!" and it seems to already be helping her!!! Thank you for making helpful products!"
"I battle with Exzema, a sore knee and elbow, and a few pimples here and there. This business intrigued me so much I bought a trial size to test it out. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT !!

Teresa T - Seattle, WA
"I love your hand, foot and body balm. I got it for some of my coworkers. We work in an environment where we are constantly washing our hands so our hands and fingers are super dry all the time. Also, our finger tips and the top of our hands split open and we use the balm its amazing how fast it really does work to close the splits back up and take some of the pain away.
"Your body balm is the only thing that heals my husbands cracked finger tips in the cold dry winter months!
Debbie - Seattle, WA
"I have been using the Olive Branch face care products and body lotion for the past few weeks and have already noticed a reduction in fine lines and dryness! My skin is firmer and at 62 years old I thought my skin would continue to look worse and thanks to Olive Branch products it looks better!
I have some dry patches with psoriasis on my legs and using the Body Balm for a few weeks has helped clear up half of the dry patches and psoriasis.
I have very sensitive skin and these products are very gentle. Thank you Olive branch for helping me look younger and feel better about myself!"
Judy - Seattle, WA
"I apply it to my heels and callouses on my feet just like applying lip balm to my lips. I roll it over my feet . Besides it feeling good, my heels have never been smooth like they are with the Body Balm. I actually like my feet now. No other lotion, including natural lotions, helped my feet like the Body Balm has.
Diane Swingler, Seattle WA
Excellent results for skin with psoriasis:
"The last order I placed was for a friend who also has psoriasis. He mentioned its working great for him.
Also, I wanted to pass this on to you, my boyfriend recently burnt himself. Not bad, just a little one, but it blistered and started peeling. I suggested he try using the foot and body balm. It healed within 24 hours and is barely noticeable. Both of us have worked in food service for a large chunk of time (so we're prone to burns) and we've never seen anything work so fast and with no greasy mess. I'll let you know, maybe it won't even leave a scar! I think you've developed such a fantastic product and I swear by it now.
Thanks for all you do!"
Jilyan, Seattle WA
"I have been using the stick form of your Natural Foot and Hand Balm for 6 months on a 4" plaque of psoriasis on my lower back. The results are amazing - the spot is barely visible! It also no longer itches. I am now using the balm on other areas of psoriasis with great results!"
