English Rosemary Botanic Body Oil
Rosemary and lavender essential oils are blended with rapeseed, camelina, blackcurrant seed and poppy seed oils to create an aromatic and nourishing blend for all skin types.
Rosemary (Rose of Mary) is sacred to remembrance, friendship and protection. During the Middle Ages, rosemary was believed to remove negativity and cleanse sacred spaces. Since Roman times it has featured in burial rites to immortalise the memory of loved ones. Rosemary traditionally adorned bridal bouquets and sprigs of rosemary were given to wedding guests as a token of remembrance.
Lavender holds a long association with love and protection. Elizabethan England considered lavender the flower of love. Lavender was thought to be an aphrodisiac, a way to keep lovers faithful and to soothe broken hearts. It was placed under mattresses for marital passion and lavender under a pillow was said to bring dreams of true love.
Also known as brassica campestris, rapeseed is part of the brassica family (it’s name is derived from the latin word for ‘turnip’) and has been cultivated since ancient times. It’s light, clean feel makes it a perfect base oil and it is ten times higher in Omega 3 than olive oil. It is rich in Vitamin E and K, with superb anti-oxidant properties and is excellent for dry skin.
Often called ‘Gold of Pleasure’, camelina oil is rich in moisurising Omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for good skin health. Camelia oil’s Vitamin E helps improve skin tone and prevent free radical damage.
A rich source of gamma linolenic acid (or GLA), blackcurrant seed oil has an anti-inflammatory agent to keep the skin hydrated and firm. It is an effective moisturiser and helps maintain skin-elasticity.
