This deliciously Cinnamon & Orange soothing bar of soap is made from shea and cocoa butter and a calming blend of essential oils.

This is one of my favorites, the blend of cinnamon and orange essential oils is so pleasant and soothing and for some reason it smells and feels homey : )  It also lathers well and the shea butter leaves my skin incredibly soft.

It is hand-made by All Pure Nature, a Ghanaian women-owned business producing and marketing personal care products made from shea butter and supporting the employment of women artisans in the capital city of Accra.

The company embraces environmental responsibility and have generated new development ideas on eco friendly recyclable packaging.

And because I always carry so many things on my bag I am a big fan of coin bags!!

This one is from ‘The Helping Hand’ and is handcrafted in India.

Each bag is hand-embroidered by women from the Banjara tribe of India. Originally from the state of Rajasthan, these women moved to artisan settlements in the south where they’re able to work from home, earning a fair wage while caring for their families. It comes in these 3 bright and beautiful colors.

I bought it through Global Girlfriend, an organization created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork. Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time.

Love,

Raquel ❤
