“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
