Our wildcrafted small-batch kit is a great way to sample the LIHA collection as well as making a lovely gift set and travel companion.
The kit includes;
Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold pressed coconut oil immersed in Tuberose flower. As well as smelling divine, Tuberose has naturally warming and aphrodisiac qualities. We love to use this for absolutely everything from a body oil to leave-in hair conditioner, or if we are feeling really indulgent, slathering it head to toe before bed and rinsing off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin. Some customers have even been known to decant it and use it as a solid perfume.
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Flower Parfum (Fragrance), Polianthes Tuberosa (Tuberose) Flower, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, *Cinnamal, *Benzyl Alcohol. *Naturally occurring in the fragrance
Raw. One ingredient. 100% ethically sourced. Fragrance-Free.
Vegan Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E. A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii ( Shea Butter)
QUEEN IDIA CANDLE, African Moss (9cl)
22 hour burn time. Our candle is made from a clean-burning coconut wax blend and has a cotton wick. African Moss has base notes of Geranium and Frankincense, top note of Lavender and hibiscus invoke the fragrance of soft African Moss. Our inspiration was the famous Yoruba Queen Idia, a symbol of female empowerment and proof of ancient matriarchal societies. The myth tells of two medicine-filled incisions on her forehead that were the source of her metaphysical power.
They loved it !!
I bought the small size in the Oat & Chamomile and the Whisky, Honey and Sweet Orange and body lotions just in case! Well, I love that both of them smell really nice especially the Whisky, Honey and Sweet Orange body lotion. They really do nourish and moisturise the skin without having to use a lot. Will definitely be ordering the big size next time :)
A text received from my friend “ Thank you so much for my birthday present! Beautiful values, beautiful packaging and totally beautiful products. Thank you so much, I was thrilled.“
I can’t express how lovely these products are. I will definitely be purchasing full size pieces (probably before I’ve even finished the discovery set). The Shea butter smells quite earthy and calming and the Idan oil is one of the best body oils I have ever tried and I’ve tried and loved some popular high end body oils. The scent of the candle really fills up the room, even at the travel size in the discovery set.
The oil sample was a bit smaller than expected but the products are wonderful. My favorite is the Shea butter— soooo smooth! Definitely some of the best I’ve tried from around the world. It has the consistency of a whipped butter and just melts effortlessly into my skin. The oil is nice as well but I wish the scent would linger longer. The candle is wonderfully scented too. I’ll definitely be purchasing some full sizes soon!
