Sunflower oil has high amounts of Vitamins A, B, D, E. It also has minerals like calcium, zinc, potassium, iron, and phosphorus. I did mention that plants make powerfully good stuff right?

It’s the baby bear of carrier oils. It’s just right.

So what's with the Voodoo thing?
Vodou is a religion whose roots come from Africa. In the Americas, Vodou is a combination of various African, Catholic and Native American traditions. Today, there are practitioners of Vodou all around the world.
Voodoo is an oral tradition. It has no scripture or central dogma. Therefore, it's doctrine and believes are very fluid. Vodou has adopted beliefs that it has encountered on its journey across the ocean and around the world. At it's heart, however, Vodou centers around community and service. Vodou always values individual experience, empowerment and responsibility.
Let's talk Loas!
Loas (also spelled Lwa) are the spirits of Vodou. Everything in Vodou has a spirit. There are over 1,000 loas. The loa are powerful forces in the universe, and they serve as an intermediary between us and the supreme creator, much like the Catholic saints. Ceremonies are performed in Vodou to facilitate a connection and relationship bewteen practitioners and the loa.
Loas can be powerful allies in life. They connect us to our ancestors and can lead us to our ultimate purpose. Each loa has his or her own distinct personality, likes, and dislikes. Each one has their own ceremony rites and music.
How does all natural vegan soap and Loas meet?
Follow me here. Loas speak to us on a deep and meaningful subconcious level. They illustrate the universal archetypes that fall into our collective unconscious. We have aromatic plants that give us scent. Scent is the number one sense tied to memory. Scent and the plants they come from also communicate to us on a very deep and meaningful sunconcious level. To me, smashing the two together to deeply communicate universal truth is very empowering. Plus, loas are amazing and the combination was a badass product. So . . .why not? Make sense? Anyone? Just me?
I would also like to bring attention to Vodou as a religion. It is a rich and wonderful tradition that has been demonized in popular culture. Pop culture? Hell this demonization began during slavery when the African religions were deemed illegal. Fear was sown around anything to do with African culture. This fear heightened in the late 1700's as news about the Haitian Revolution began to arrive in the States. Unfortunately, this unfounded fear continues to this day.
The reality is practitioners of Vodou are extremely service and community driven. Protection and blessing to uplift the community are vital New Orleans Vodou. Practitioners believe that you get back what you put forward. Practitioners do a lot of good in their communities. Vodou is a tradition that should be celebrated, not feared. The more you know.
