Garrigue Body Oil
Garrigue is the name given to the sun-baked hills above the Mediterranean in Provence. Home to wild figs, juniper, lavender and cypress, it's where we sourced all of our ingredients for this nourishing body oil.
This is a deeply moisturising body oil made with fig seed oil with a soft floral aroma pierced by herby notes of wild cypress and juniper.
- What It Does
- Deeply moisturising and nourishing.
- Penetrates skin well due to its similarity to 'sebum' which is the skin's natural oil so it's not greasy.
- Naturally contains magnesium, a mineral that can be absorbed topically and promotes relaxation.
- An aroma with ingredients when inhaled lower cortisol levels, boost happiness hormones (serotonin) and promote relaxation.
WHY IT WORKS
Fig seed oil is rich with natural Omega’s 3, 6 and 9 which deliver great moisture and nourishment, along camellia seed oil, these are unusually premium ingredients for a body oil.
Rice bran oil is usually found in facial oils but we've used it in our body oil: evens skin tone and increases moisture retention.
Juniper and cypress both contain antifungal compounds that help condition skin.
FIG SEED OIL - rich in fatty acids, deeply moisturising and contains a natural enzyme that gently exfoliates skin so a great bonus for dry skin as it will aid in sloughing off dead cells and renewing skin’s surface.
RICE BRAN OIL - usually an ingredient in facial oil, we added it because it contains natural squalene and is a great hydrator and moisturiser.
CYPRESS - anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, this oil has been traditionally used to heal skin wounds and has been shown to help with the treatment of varicose veins (there is research that shows it helps with blood circulation when applied topically).
