Over the years, my clients have told me that they only use their beautiful creams and oils on their face and neck and don’t use them on the body because they are “too special” or “expensive”. But the worst part is when they tell me that they use “regular drugstore”, “Eucerin” or “Whatever lotion I have” on the body because clearly, for some reason, they value the skin on the body much less than the skin on their face. But it’s all skin and it all needs nourishment to protect from the elements ~ in your body’s case those are your clothes, that before you wear them, are sprayed with a multitude of industrial chemicals and then after you wash them hold on to residue from detergents and fabric softeners that interact with your skin on a daily basis. It also bears the brunt of hot showers, harsh soaps, perfumed washes and shampoos and conditioners that trickle down the back… If only it could experience the same daily dose of beautiful oils, creams and hydrosols that your face does.
The GREAT news is that these conversations with my clients (YOU!) helped inspire Elique’s NEW Bath & Body Collection. Let’s face it, all of your skin needs some TLC because it will either prematurely age or age gracefully and that outcome will come down to neglect or tending to. It’s your choice.
Though this collection is still blooming there are already a few standouts if you are ready to experience how supple and ageless ALL OF YOU can truly be.
Sweet Calm Abhyanga Oil is already becoming a bestseller. Ginger, sesame, jasmine and Apricot Kernel immediately warm the body while macadamia nut, sweet almond and amalaki moisturize and nourish the skin, all of which is very grounding for Vata dosha. Sweet Calm is ideal for your morning Abhyanga practice, to use with your Kansa wand when massaging the body or as an everyday beautifying body oil.
Green Tea Jasmine Body Oil is a most special oil made with green tea seed oil (Camellia sinensis) and tea seed oil (Camellia). In both, the oil in their seeds contain many of the same antioxidants as the tea along with healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and lipids. Camellia seed oil is rich in Vitamin E and Stearic Acid, a fatty acid that deeply moisturizes, hydrates and protects the barrier of the skin. All of this with the scent of Indian Jasmine… oh my my!
