Clove & Coconut Body Nectar
A luxurious blend of our favourite skin-loving oils, infused with dried hibiscus and rose petals, along with our Clove & Coconut fragrance. Clove & Coconut is a spicy scent that invokes thoughts of nights spent on a warm, salty beach. Notes of fruit and orange mingle with coconut, cinnamon, clove and driftwood topped with base notes of sugary vanilla and musk.
TO USE • Use this body oil right after a bath or shower, or drizzle a bit into the running bath water. While your skin is still moist and your pores are open, massage the oil onto your skin, from ankles to neck. Your skin will absorb the ultra-moisturizing oils while leaving your skin soft, smooth, supple and hydrated. Packaged in a 4 ounce glass bottle with a glass drop vial, just one dropper full of this oil is perfect for each part of your body (i.e., one dropper full for your right calf, one dropper full for your left calf, etc.), making it easy to dispense just the right amount that you want. When you're all finished with your body nectar, you can dry the flowers inside and reuse your glass bottle for whatever you'd like!

• Jojoba Oil •
Jojoba oil has amazing absorption and moisturizing qualities, sealing in moisture and creating an effective barrier to external elements. It is so structurally close to the secretion of the sebaceous glands in the skin that it is readily accepted and tolerated. Jojoba oil has an anti-inflammatory effect that can counter seborrheic dermatitis, as well. It contains almost all of the vitamins and minerals essential for healthy skin and hair: vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium and it’s gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin without causing allergic reactions.
• Vitamin E Oil •
Vitamin E oil is perfect for giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow. Vitamin E oil reduces dryness and flakiness, so even the driest of skin can benefit from even a small amount of this oil, used daily. Also great for helping to lessen the visible signs of stretch marks, as it penetrates down to the dermis and starts healing the scar. Within a few weeks, the depression fills up and the scar diminishes in appearance, although Vitamin E Oil will not make any skin problem entirely disappear, it will help diminish the signs of some skin conditions.
• Hibiscus Flowers •
Hibiscus is nicknamed the “botox plant” because it's one of the most powerful anti-aging plants. It increases skin elasticity, giving you a youthful glow while lifting and firming your skin. Hibiscus flowers have slight exfoliating properties found in the organic acids (including citric and malic acid), which help speed up cell turnover, resulting in a more even skin tone. Hibiscus is also rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants have been proven to help fight free radicals, which can result in premature aging and also help reduce the appearance of large pores, making your complexion appear smoother. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect and can soothe inflamed skin, which is great for those with very sensitive skin. Hibiscus contains gentle acids, helping with age spots. This miracle plant encourages fresher, younger, smoother looking skin, even helping control acne breakouts. Harsh drugstore products contain synthetics that strip your skin of its natural, much-needed oils, yet the organic acids in hibiscus bring back those glorious oils and balance your skin, giving you a naturally gorgeous glowing complexion. Hibiscus also has a high mucilage content (sounds like something you wouldn’t want, but trust me… you do), which is a sticky substance that’s produced by plants to help with the storage of water and food. Mucilage is a wonderful natural skin moisturizer that’s gentle for sensitive skin. Found in hibiscus, it enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture, keeping your skin hydrated, soft, supple and free from dull, dry skin.
• Rose Petals •
Rose petals help rejuvenate and replenish skin. Naturally antibacterial, rose oils can help treat acne-prone skin, help reduce swollen spots or redness and can help soothe rosacea and eczema symptoms. Rose petals also contain high amounts of vitamin C, which help protect skin cells from damage. Also a natural astringent, they help tighten pores and restore suppleness for a glowing complexion (unlike store-bought alcohol-based toners which leave your skin feeling dried out, rose leaves skin feeling smooth). They help control excess oil, unclog pores and also keep your skin looking taut and glowing. As rose petals contain antioxidants and antibacterial compounds, they soothe the skin, providing relief from excessive irritation and itching. Rose petal oils also help lock moisture into the skin, keeping it feeling smooth and soft. (it’s especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin because the sugars in its petals create a soothing feeling). A staple in Ayurvedic medicine, they also detoxify and calm.
