our blue lotus body oil contains a natural blend of nourishing botanicals oils, including squalane, kukui nut and papaya seed. it helps to soothe irritated skin and is readily absorbed, leaving a soft finish and healthy sheen. caprylic/capric triglycerides, derived from medium chain coconut fatty acids, deeply nourish and comfort dry skin. a blend of blue yarrow and yuzu fruit essential oils uplifts the senses.

layer: use after your shower or bath, while skin is still damp

 

  • helps to soothe irritated skin
  • absorbs quickly without residue
  • revives the spirit with the fragrances of yuzu and blue yarrow

 

size: 2 oz / 60 ml 

 

  • caprylic/capric triglycerides, derived from medium chain coconut fatty acids, have a light texture and are readily absorbed into skin without leaving a greasy residue.

  • squalane is a light and stable version of olive oil squalene. found naturally in the sebum of human skin, squalane helps to lubricate and protect the skin while being rapidly absorbed.  

  • kukui nut oil contains linoleic and linolenic fatty acids which are excellent for repairing the skin's barrier mechanisms and decreasing transepidermal water loss. it also contains oleic acid, which moisturizes and softens the skin. 

  • papaya seed oil, rich in fatty acids, penetrates and moisturizes the skin effectively.

  • blue yarrow essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties. its scent is sweet and fresh. when distilled, one of its constituents decomposes into chamazulene, which lends its entrancing, deep blue color.

  • yuzu essential oil is derived from the rare and prized yuzu fruit. it is traditionally floated in a hot ceremonial bath on the night of the winter solstice with the aim of protecting against colds, stimulating the skin, warming the body, and relaxing the mind. 

 

ingredients:

caprylic/capric triglyceride, squalane, Aleurites moluccana (kukui) nut oil, Carica papaya (papaya) seed oil, Citrus junos (yuzu) peel oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), Achillea millefolium (common yarrow) oil*, limonene**, linalool**

* certified organic

**naturally occurring ingredients of essential oils

 

to use, apply a few drops to damp skin immediately after bathing. massage in gently while inhaling the scents of blue yarrow and yuzu fruit. alternatively, slip a few teaspoons into your bath for a quietly stimulating soak. 

made by hand in small batches. please use within 6 months of opening.

what is a body oil?

a body oil is just that – a combination of oils selected for use on your body, rather than your face. some oils, which may be too heavy for regular use on facial skin, are absolutely perfect for the body, including squalane, jojoba, olive, and coconut.

 

what does a body oil do?

a body oil assists in maintaining moisture in your skin for several hours. ideally, it provides a protective barrier to prevent loss of hydration.

 

when should I use a body oil? 

we recommend using a body oil immediately after showing or bathing, when your skin is still damp, to lock in moisture and soothe your skin.

 

how do I use a body oil?

as with most beauty products, there’s a quick method and a more luxurious but time-consuming regimen. if you’re pressed for time, apply a few drops to damp skin immediately after towel drying the skin, while the skin is still damp. for the ultimate body oil experience, dry brush your skin prior to bathing in a warm tub, with a teaspoon of oil in your bath water. exfoliate the skin gently, and then tap the skin dry prior to applying a few more drops of oil to damp skin. 

 

what type of skin is best served by this oil?

all skin types can use our blue lotus body oil. for severely dry skin, we recommend a body butter (coming soon).

 

where does that entrancing blue color come from?

despite its name, the blue color in our blue lotus body oil does not actually come from blue lotus – we had to abandon lotus essential oil as an ingredient early on as it kept turning our gorgeous concoction moss green. the blue in our oil comes to you courtesy of blue yarrow, which when distilled, partially decomposes into chamazulene to lend its deep blue color. we’ve balanced the grounding, earthy scent of blue yarrow with yuzu – a sparkling, fresh citrus essential oil from Japan. we kept the name of the lotus for our blue beauty, as it describes what we want you to feel each time you use this product: be the lotus, and experience renewal each morning.

  

can men use this product?

yes, this product is safe for men, because we know they need moisture, too. we’re working on a little something especially for men; watch this space.

Love this!!

I bought this and kept it on the shelf for a while. It is just so beautiful so I was just saving it for a special occasion. I decided to try it today and fell in love just like I thought I would. The bottle is small but you don’t need very much to make an impact. And the smell! Crisp and clean and perfect!

So Luxe!

I feel SO good when I use this oil. It's total luxury from the bottle to the gorgeous blue oil (don't worry, it goes on clear!) I use day and night on my arms, legs, stomach, etc. and my skin feels smooth and has a light sheen (which looks great, especially in dresses).
