We are thrilled to announce that we have just launched a new edition to each of our ranges – meet our sacred Ayurvedic Body Oils!Ayurveda is a natural healing system that maintains an inextricable link with Mother Earth and her botanicals- so it’s really no wonder we’ve made all of our oils 100% natural, vegan and cruelty free. As we work to improve the sustainability of our packaging day by day, we are also proud to say that after extensively researching, the containers for our Body Oils are our most eco-friendly to date, in a luxurious look and feel glass bottle.As the old-school mode of self-care (before Instagram made #selfcaresunday a thing), Ayurvedic rituals offer a way to heal from the comfort of your own home. So far, we’ve given you ‘Garshana’ which may be practised with our Ayurvedic Dry Body Brush and now, we would like to present you with the Ritual of ‘Abhyanga’.Abhyanga is Sanskrit for ‘self-massage’ and has been practised for thousands of years in order to detoxify, soothe and boost circulation. Now you know why, let’s explain how:First things first, make sure you’re in a comfortably heated room with candles lit and soft music playing in the background. Warm the oil in the palms of the hands and massage for 5-15 minutes using long strokes along the limbs towards the heart, switching to circular motions over the joints and chest to aid lymphatic drainage. Prepare for sleep or allow the nourishing oils to sink in for 20 minutes before bathing or showering.The most important takeaway from rituals such as ‘Abhyanga’ is that they challenge the idea of ‘routine’. Rather than going through the daily motions of ‘self-care’ on auto-pilot, rituals allow us to practice the same healing modalities BUT with a mindful and conscious approach.Each of our Body Oil Ranges emphasise mindful and conscious application through their unique formulations. For example, Our Purifying Body Oil contains enlivening essential oils of Organic Neem, Organic Gotu Kola, and Organic Witch Hazel, traditionally used to purify and energise the skin. Softening Sweet Almond and Sesame Oil restore natural radiance whilst uplifting aromas of Patchouli, Geranium, and Spearmint help clear the mind.Our Soothing Body Oil balances the skin and senses with adaptogenic Shatavari Root Extract and Lavender to help calm the mind and promote restful sleep. Sweet Almond and Sesame Oil restore natural radiance, while earthy aromas of Organic Rosemary, Clary and Sandalwood encourage total relaxation.Our Reviving Body Oil contains a rich exotic blend of Arjuna, Pomegranate, Borage, Jasmine and Evening Primrose to caress and pamper the skin to leave it feeling sensuously soft and revitalised. Precious Damask Rose enchants the skin and senses with calm serenity.The Radiance Body Oil contains warming Frankincense and grounding Turmeric Root Extract to help boost radiant skin. Soothing and aromatic Geranium and Patchouli help to inspire calm and ease busy minds.
