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.

DISCOVERY & GIFT SET
DISCOVERY & GIFT SET
I purchased the discovery set which contains the IDAN oil. I have very dry skin and hair (menopause !!!). I do not usually like to use oil especially on my face as I find it too heavy…..but this oil is so amazing, it is an oil obviously ! but it has an amazing ability to feel light but extremely moisturising at the same time. There is no sticky after feeling like most other oils. I would love to be able to use it as a full body, (including my hair ) moisturiser, but cost is a little prohibitive for me. But a little does go a long way. At the moment my face and hands are reaping the benefits. I LOVE IT !
I was super excited to try everything from Liha and couldn’t decide what to order first so this kit was perfect! The candle and the Idan oil are quite possibly the best smelling products I’ve ever encountered!! The Idan oil is a very warm and sensual scent. It’s floral and spicy which is my absolute fave and the oil feels like silk and sinks right in. Queen Idia...I can’t even begin to describe the depths of the scent in the candle...but believe me...you need it in your life. I’m also a lifetime Shea butter user and this is one of the best quality butters I’ve come across. It actually absorbs and feels soothing unlike some lesser quality butters that just sit on the skin. I am literally on the site now to buy full sizes of everything! Thank you so much for creating such amazing products! You can feel the love and care that went into each one. You have a customer for life!
