Turn any hotel room or temporary space into a spa haven with the mini versions of two classic products. The 30ml Idan oil is just enough to use daily on a mini break and can replace a lot of products in your case: hair oil, massage oil, shaving cream, body oil, after-sun. The glass packaging also makes it perfect to use as a refill next time round. The mini candles has a 22 hour burn-time and will add calm and romance to any space.
Queen Idia, African Moss Candle;
Our candle is made from clean burning sustainable coconut wax 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 container.
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.
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 facial 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 you new uses you discover!
We create beauty products that are, like us, a mixture of natural African roots and a quintessentially British attitude.
Like the diaspora that we take inspiration from, our community is rooted in Yoruba culture and spreads throughout the world to share the power of Asé, wellness, slow-living and self care.
