The Milk n' Honey Potion
A liquid version of a soap batch inspired by the idea of “Farm to Shower" - sourcing the ingredients from organic farms that produce high quality products just miles from the Jiu Jitsu academy where we train. The raw Goats Milk and Honey come from two farms just north of Santa Barbara, CA. Goat’s Milk was sourced for it’s high potency of skin-nourishing vitamins (D, C, B1, B6, B12, & E) and it's fatty creams that help heal damaged skin and soothe skin ailments like Psoriasis, Dermatitis, and Eczema. Although the Honey and Goats Milk both share naturally-antibacterial properties, we further powered up the Potion with a potent blend of soothing Rosemary and Tea Tree Oil to help sterilize any scrapes, scratches, and Gi burn. Organic Turmeric powder is then added in to offer it's anti-inflammatory properties to soar muscles. The golden concoction is finally rounded off with moisturizing Cocoa Butter and sprinkled with handfuls of organic, California-grown Poppy seeds.

Rosemary Oil: Contains antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that make it beneficial in efforts to eliminate eczema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne.
