Body and Massage Oil
A luxurious, non-greasy feel. A soft scent of Orange blossom, Lime, Sandalwood, Rose and Violet leaf are uplifting but unobtrusive. All the ingredients are used for their skin-soothing properties and come together in an opulent oil.
Directions for Use:
Apply a few drops to warm skin and massage with gentle strokes towards the chest, until the oil has been absorbed. This can be used during the day or before bed; ideally after bathing when skin is warm. The oils moisturise and are quickly absorbed to leave skin feeling silky, not sticky.
This can also be used as a beard oil or on the face, hands and feet, particularly for dry patches of skin.
The base, carrier oils, contain natural vitamins A, C and E and these are combined with botanical extracts and infusions, chosen for their skin-enhancing abilities and astringent feel. These are combined to make an oil which is comfortable to use, has a lovely ‘slide’ on the skin, without leaving a a greasy residue.
There are three plant infusions/extracts in this oil and it should not be used by anyone allergic to them. It is recommended that Cornflower extract or infusions are avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy.
