This is a light moisturising lotion suitable for the whole body: 80% certified organic ingredients. The lotion is blended with sunflower seed oil, olive fruit oil, aloe leaf juice and shea butter, with added essential oils of frankincense and neroli.

Frankincense oil has a wonderfully calming effect on the mind and helps to create inner peace, while helping to soothe and relieve pain associated with rheumatism and muscular aches, also having a rejuvenating, balancing and healing action on the skin. It has a woody, spicy, haunting smell and originates from the Middle East. The word is from the French word 'Franc' meaning 'luxuriant' or 'real incense' and together with Myrrh, it was the first gum to be used as incense. Also known as Olibanum, frankincense was used by the ancient Egyptians as an offering to the gods and as part of a rejuvenating face mask.

Neroli oil has a sweet, floral aroma, it is also known as 'orange blossom' and it takes about 1000 lbs. of orange blossoms to make 1 lb. of Neroli oil. The name is said to have originated from the Italian princess, Anne-Marie de la Tremoille (Countess of Nerola) who used the oil as a perfume and to scent her bathwater and gloves. It is still an ingredient for making traditional smelling eau-de-cologne. Blended with frankincense it creates an absolutely amazing aroma.
