"Then male and female unite, desire prevails, worlds are blessed, and above and below are in joy."
Sefer HaZOHAR [Va-Yhi 1:244a]
Nothing else like it...
We combined pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans and Organic Sweet Orange Oil to create a scent like no other in the world. We wanted to create a unique fragrance of the highest quality which would combine exotic, organic essential oils with vanilla, and do it without artificial chemicals, high heat, or any other process that would disrupt the gorgeous natural aromas of the ingredients. So we created a proprietary process that combines pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla with Organic Sweet Orange Oil. Then we added some of the world's most exotic and sensual essential oils like myrrh, frankincense, ylang-ylang, and patchouli to create "TaavaMX", a fragrance like no other on Earth – predominantly sweet orange, with strong overtones of natural vanilla and exotic accents. The mood brightening sensuality of TaavaMX adds an interesting edge which lasts all day!
Vanilla in its natural state is water-soluble and does not dissolve in oil, so it is very difficult to combine vanilla with any other fragrance without using artificial chemicals. (That is why most "vanilla" products are made with artificial vanillins, not real vanilla.) Yet the aroma and aphrodisiac nature of real vanilla are so valued that it has been called "the world's favorite scent" for centuries.

Shekhina Shea Sugar Scrub
The World's Best Sugar Scrub
Made with the highest-quality ingredients, Shekhina Shea Sugar Scrub is designed to provide the ultimate sugar scrub experience. Our fragrance designer says...
"I love this scrub! Here's why...
INGREDIENTS: Food-grade dark brown sugar; pure top-quality semi-refined Shea butter; Organic Argan Oil; "Taava-MX" (proprietary blend of Organic Sweet Orange Oil, top-quality Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans, Organic Myrrh Essential Oil, Organic Frankincense Essential Oil, Organic Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil, Organic Patchouli Essential Oil, food-grade ethanol)
1. It has a wonderful earthy and refreshing aroma that I find is calming and uplifting. The aroma lasts thru the day.
2. It really scrubs off loose and flaky skin, and leaves my skin looking healthy and vibrant underneath.
3. The oils are concentrated and leave a nice layer of rich oil and aroma on my skin, without being too oily. It leaves my skin soft and moist instead of heavy and sticky. So much better than other scrubs, which either leave nothing on the skin or are so heavy that I can't stand them.
4. The residue left behind in the tub is light enough that you can wipe the tub with a damp wash cloth to clean it off.
5. A little scrub goes a long way.
6. I love the way the fragrance lingers in the bathroom and hall after I shower! The area smells good for hours.
7. I have used MANY sugar scrubs and this is the first I've found that does all of these things and keeps me wanting to coming back for more!"
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Apply all over body in a circular motion during shower or bath.
