Winter Resins Body Nectar
This is what we use as our body lotion. It is a combination of oils that will provide all of your essential fatty acids, this makes for the silkiest, smoothest, softest skin possible. No emulsifiers, no preservatives (except rosemary as an antioxidant for the oils). Just high quality organic, wild crafted, or carefully sourced butters, cold pressed oils and essential oils.
This winter we tried something we have been thinking about for a while and that is infusing all of these resins we have collected all these years. We infused many of them into this body nectar. Resins do for our skin what they do for tree tissues, that is repair and protect. All of the usual thick base oils are here to keep our skin soft and smooth all winter long.
Carrier Oil Blend:
Hemp Oil (USA) - incredibly nourishing, anti-inflammatory, essential fatty acid powerhouse
Cocoa Butter (Jeanne Rose) - this is a silky absorbent version of this thick natural butter from our favorite aphrodisiac and healthful Cacao bean, thank you Jeanne!
Babassu kernel Oil (Brazil) - High in Lauric acid (also found in Coconut oil), very smoothing and fast absorbing, your skin will feel softer and smoother than you could imagine.
Virgin Coconut Oil (Filipines) - Palmitic and Lauric Acids plus the plethora of benefits that we have come to know Coconut oil provides. This one is incredibly aromatic and make up a lot of the scent.
Mango Butter (Mexico) - Hydrogenated and used instead of beeswax, to give a smoother texture and emollience, one of the few hydrogenated oils we are ok with from time to time.
Essential Oil Blend:
Resins - Dragons Blood (no dragons were harmed, this is from a tree in Indonesia), Opoponax (Nairobi), Myrrh (Somalia), Ponderosa Pine (Shingle Springs, CA), Douglas Fir (Wallowa Lake, OR), Juniper Co2 (India), Balsam of Peru
Palmarosa (India) - a beautifully citrusy, floral, woody essential oil from the same family as Lemongrass. It is powerfully antimicrobial, and cellular regenerating. It also supposedly attract money, love, and opens the heart to receive love.
