“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. Whenever I'm so sad I'm going to die, or so nervous I can't sleep, or in love with somebody I won't be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: ‘I'll go take a hot bath’ – Sylvia Plath”
You need these products on the side of your bath at all times in case of an emergency! Light the candle, pop the oil in, and wait for it to melt. Massage yourself back to calm, allow the calming scents to lull you into a deep sleep.
IDAN OIL (100ml)
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 into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.
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 as a solid perfume. Let us know what new uses you discover!
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Flower Parfum (Fragrance), Polianthes Tuberosa (Tuberose) Flower, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, *Cinnamal, *Benzyl Alcohol. *Naturally occurring in the fragrance
QUEEN IDIA, African Moss - 30cl
Our candle is made from clean-burning sustainable coconut wax blend with base notes of Geranium and Frankincense, top notes of Lavender, and hibiscus invoking the fragrance of soft African Moss. We use cotton wicks and recyclable and reusable containers.
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.
How To Use: 30cl is approximately 60-65 hours burn time.
Ritual: You need the Queen Idia candle on the side of your bath at all times in case of an emergency! Light the candle and sit back on relax
The oil is so luxurious and smells heavenly. The candle is the perfect accompaniment to a long bath. LOVE.
I was sent the wrong products.
I got this for a relative and loved it. Thanks for making her special day
A beautiful combination. I have purchased the oil previously and am totally addicted to it. Now I’m addicted to the aroma of the candle as well, so much so that I purchased the little gift bag of oil candle and hemp for a friend to introduce her to the world of Liha
When I first got my package, my Idan oil was broken, I was so sad. So I reached out to the Liha team about what happened and they got back to me right away sent me a replacement. I have been purchasing Idan oil for years now and it is still my favorite oil to use after a shower/bath. After that, I light the queen Idia candle and journal or read the rest of the night. These small acts of love for myself are now my goodnight ritual. Thank Liha for the incredible products looking forward to new inventions!
