Dr. Josh Axe recently posted an article highlighting 12 winter fruits that are good for your health, how to include them in your diet and even some recipes to try. The link to the full article with all these goodies is posted below.
As I read this article, 3 of the 5 citrus oils in our Sunset Citrus Body Butter - oranges, grapefruit and pomegranates are among the winter fruits he mentioned.
Did you know ORANGES are in peak season during the winter in Texas, Arizona, California and Florida? So often we think of oranges as a summer fruit. Oranges are well-known for being rich in Vitamin C and more!
GRAPEFRUIT is in season January to late spring and found predominantly in the same states as oranges. High in Vitamin C and A, Grapefruit has the ability to fight free radical damage and oxidative stress that contribute to aging and chronic disease and more!
POMEGRANATES contain powerful antioxidants and are linked to cancer prevention, detoxing and heart health. Pomegranate seeds are high in vitamin K, C, folate and potassium and more!
As our Sunset Citrus Butter, (Oranges, Grapefruit, Pomegranates + Mango and Apricot) melts into your skin, just think of the nourishing breakfast of citrus you’re getting with the amazing benefits you get to start your day. Sometimes we forget that the skin care we use contributes to good health just like the actual fruit you eat. This is why it’s so important to choose quality cosmetics with clean and organic ingredients without any chemicals that can harm you.
