Botanica Oil - Island Perfume aromatherapy
With warmer weather comes the risk of irritation . . . bugs and plants for starters. Keeping the pests away is one job, but calming skin irritated by pests and everything else is quite another. Doing both whilst not smelling like a citronella candle . . . is wonderful stuff.
To make sure this oil really keeps the bugs at bay, we've asked our friends and family in the tropics and in the UK to trial it.
Our formulation contains a blend of three key plant seed oils and glides on, moisturising deeply and soothing inflamed skin:
With a bouquet of eight essential plant oils that keep those bugs away, smells gorgeously fresh, like summer. On an island. Not like bug spray.
Finally, a few drops of vitamin E (tocopherol), which is fantastic on skin, naturally preserve the oils so that they stay fresh for more than one season. You've got a 12-month shelf life on the oil, from the time of opening.
A few more tidbits about this product:
- You'll love this bottle. The snap-on spray cap is made of flexible plastic, so it won't crack. The 50ml size is small enough for a purse or carry-on; if you've got a few bodies to protect (certified safe to use on 3 years+), our larger 100ml size is what you need.
- We've had the unhappy chance to test this oil out during a head lice infestation, and we've been using a light spray of it in hair (mine included) to keep the pests away ever since.
- This product contains a robust blend of essential oils. Although it's the permissible amount, we don't recommend that you use this oil if you are pregnant.
