Glow-UP Glycerin by our March Herbalist of the Month
The LEVO Love Club is the heart of our brand. From flower enthusiasts, DIY beauty lovers, and gourmet chefs, we love to see what you make. At the core, we’re all herbalists in training sharing our plant-based creations. Every month we will highlight a LEVO Love Club member in a new feature called–Herbalist of the Month.
For March, meet Sha Hannah-Santo! Founder and Owner of Emanate Essentials from Boston, MA. We checked in with Sha to ask her a few questions about how she keeps it #LEVOmade. Lucky for us, she also passed on her special “GlowUp Glycerin” recipe for dry skin & hair below. Read on and meet Sha!

Sha’s GlowUp Glycerin Recipe
2 oz frankincense tears
1 oz of dried rose petals
1/2 oz of dried chamomile
10 drops cedarwood atlas
6 oz of glycerin
Use a mortar and pestle, or spice grinder to grind frankincense to a fine powder before adding to pod with dried chamomile and rose.
Add glycerin to LEVO reservoir.
Set temperature to 185°F and time to 50 minutes.
After infusion is complete, dispense into jar of your choice.
Add 1 tablespoon per 4-6 oz to your favorite hair conditioner, body wash, and moisturizers.*
*Herbalist Note: Glycerin extracts can last for at least (conservatively) 4-6 months. Sha suggests for cold and drier months use herbal-infused glycerites as a highly effective moisturizer and humectant for skin and hair.
