Sandalwood Essential Oil (santalum spicata)
Sweet and spicy and all things nicey!…obviously not a real word, but it does have a certain ring to it.
So, you already know the origins of sandalwood by now, and what it’s great for, so here is what I like about it. It has a warm woody and thoroughly gorgeous smell; The back end of this smell reminds me of the scent you get when an open fire is nearing its end, and I do love an open log fire. It also has an almost, but not overpowering musky smell, mingled with an earthy smell.
When you combine this smell with cardamom, you get a sweet woody smell that reminds me of fairies dancing around an open fire…see if you know where I’m coming from with this unique description.
Cardamom Essential Oil (elettaria cardamomum)
Cultivated in India, Sri Lanka and Guatemala, cardamom is known as the Queen of Spices in the culinary world. As an essential oil it is a soothing oil with a woody, spicy and sweet smell. It is known for its uplifting and stimulating effect, making it a perfect companion when blended with sandalwood. It is also known as an aid for calming motion sickness, nausea and an upset stomach, and when applied topically, on its own it, creates a warming sensation on the skin. Did I also mention that it has been said to inspire sensuality and help to encourage a romantic atmosphere.
If all that information was overwhelming, when simplified, this spicy duo should hopefully make you and your partner feel like fairies dancing, flying and swooping around an open fire, without getting motion sickness…all with a warm tingly feeling.

Sandalwood & Cardamom Organic Whipped Body Butter
Yes, you could roll around in a pile of leaves, or even grab a big handful and inhale deeply, but there’s no guarantee you will get that natural earthy smell you’re looking for. I have however found that Sandalwood & Cardamom, when combined, achieves that smell perfectly. Think of Mother Earth and how you would expect her to smell if you met her up close and in person and that is the aroma you get. I find myself inhaling the scent from the jar over and over again, especially when I’m indoors all day and a want a mild woody smell that takes me back to times spent walking through the woods and that gorgeous smell from an open living room wood fire.
Does that make me strange? I don’t know, but it puts a smile on my face. I’m certain it will do the same for you.

By applying organic coconut oil to the skin, this edible moisturising oil rejuvenates and can help with dry skin and irritations. it will help keep the appearance of the skin healthy and smooth; and due to its natural composition of saturated fat, it is known to help reduce the loss of moisture.

It is also known for its soothing and anti-irritant properties

How and when to use
With no added water, a little bit goes a long way. Simply warm a little bit in your hand and spread it all over your body, from your top to your toes. Use it sparingly twice a day to keep your skin glowing for hours, and then indulge again for soft silky skin before bedtime.
At bedtime I pay close attention to my elbows, knees, feet and hands…I‘ve also indulged in bamboo gloves and socks to stop any moisture being lost by cotton bedsheets.
Hint: For those with dry skin or dry skin conditions, bamboo bedding and clothing can also make a massive difference…take a look at our blog for more information.
I also pay close attention to moisturising the stretch marks and scars on my thighs, bum and tum.
As with all natural butters, you may need to pop your body butter into the fridge in warmer weather/environments.
Due to the natural origins of all the ingredients, the colour, consistency and scent of the body butter may vary from batch to batch.
