Named after QUEEN NZINGHA, a very good military leader who waged war against the savage slave-hunting Europeans. She was a member of the ethnic Jagas, and the AMAZON QUEEN OF MATAMBA, WEST AFRICA (1582-1663). She possessed both masculine hardness and feminine charm and used them both depending on the situation. As a visionary political leader, competent, and self sacrificing, she formed a human shield against the Portuguese slave traders.
I named this balm after QUEEN NZINGHA due to this balms shielding qualities as well. It too possesses both masculine strength(carnauba wax & essential oils) & feminine charm (carrier oils). I add ingredients like carnauba wax, which is known to shield/protect the skin...it is heavier than beeswax, supplying you with much needed protection from the elements/ uv rays & outside sources period. I also add aloe butter, which provides protection to your skin, aloe is known to have healing qualities. I add mango butter, which is great for age spots, under eye marks and anti-aging remedies....I add rose geranium oil (which is an african essential oil that is great for cellulite, dull skin, acne, dry skin & menopause), this oil does wonders for your skin, both dry & oily....I add SHEA BUTTER AND shea nut oil which are GREAT moisturizers & protects your skin from the elements.
This balm is for skin that needs TLC, this is not a daily lotion/balm...this is for EXTREMELY dry, cracking, sun abused skin. This balm will protect it from the sun & elements allowing it to become healthy with a nice glow. You apply this balm to areas where you need extra protection (feet, elbows, knees, hands, sunburned skin, shoulders, back, etc.). I do not add any fragrance oils to this mixture, although the rose geranium essential oil lends a nice flowery fragrance to the balm on its own.
HINT: apply to affected areas right after bathing/shower while skin is still moist. This allows the balm to penetrate the outer layers of the skin & TRULY moisturize & protect! Always apply when pores are open for best results. This shielding balm can also be used for your feet....it contains walnut oil, which is a SUPERB oil for coating your feet.
This balm is THICK & RICH!! Just simply apply a thin layer to your skin & allow it to do its job...SHIELD & PROTECT!!
