Kombo Butter: The Pinnacle of Skin Comfort
Kombo butter, also known as Pynanthus Angolensis butter or African Nutmeg butter, is a unique and natural ingredient with various potential medicinal properties when used topically on the skin. While it's essential to emphasize that kombo butter cannot make medical claims, its traditional and anecdotal uses suggest several beneficial qualities:
Moisturizing and Nourishing: Kombo butter is highly emollient, making it an effective moisturizer. When applied to the skin, it helps lock in moisture, prevent dryness, and maintain skin hydration. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or rough skin.
Anti-Inflammatory: Kombo butter contains Myristoleic fatty acid, which may have anti-inflammatory properties. It has been traditionally used to soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
Skin Softening: The fatty acids and other components in kombo butter can contribute to skin softening and may help improve skin texture. It's a valuable ingredient in products designed to promote smoother, softer skin.
Relief for Muscle and Joint Discomfort: Some individuals find that the application of kombo butter-based products may offer a sense of relief to sore muscles and joints. While not a substitute for medical treatment, it can be part of a relaxation and self-care routine.
Antioxidant Protection: The presence of antioxidants in kombo butter, such as tocopherols and tocotrienols, may help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Calendula-Infused Olive Oil: Nature's Elixir for Healing
Enhancing the formula, Calendula-infused organic extra virgin olive oil contributes an impeccable layer of natural care. Calendula, celebrated for its centuries-old tradition in skin health, harbors potential anti-inflammatory qualities that may soothe skin and stimulate healing. The union of Calendula and olive oil offers a harmonious blend that supports a balanced and nourished epidermis.
Black Pepper and Fresh Ginger Root Essential Oils: The Holistic Arsenal
The inclusion of Black Pepper and Fresh Ginger Root essential oils in our concoction delivers a multidimensional approach to comfort. These essential oils exhibit potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, offering a comprehensive strategy to target sore muscles and joint discomfort.
Menthol Crystals: The Immediate Comfort
Completing our formulation are organic menthol crystals, renowned for their immediate cooling comfort. These crystals engage your skin with a refreshing sensation that can help alleviate aches and pains while promoting relaxation.

I was increasingly frustrated that the ingredients in my favorite body products were not only unpronounceable and unrecognizable, but also questionable as to if they were good for my body.
I started making body butters using simple, recognizable ingredients for myself and ended up making them as gifts as well.
I run a successful boutique business and love working with customers to create one-of-a-kind, custom products and gifts that are made with love and intention and filled with the peace and serenity of the mountains.
“I make my soaps in small batches, which allows me to oversee every tiny detail of production and put out high-quality products that you can not only feel good about using but that also leave your skin feeling amazing.”
Solitude Soapworks studio is situated on the back part of our homestead, overlooking flower gardens, forests, and the majestic high peaks.
It blends in as only an Adirondack Camp cabin can with a green metal roof and dark brown siding. Very unassuming from the outside but indoors is where the magic happens. You’ll find plants, crystals, and a wall of fragrance and color—it’s a hippie’s paradise, and there is always music playing. (It keeps the gremlins away.)
Our soaps are formulated to be gentle for all skin types, using only the highest quality plant-based butters and oils we can source, and our leave-on body products are made with organic ingredients wherever possible.
