Aphrodite (also known as Venus by the ancient Romans) is the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty. A skilled seductress (and the mother of Cupid, no less), she uses her powers (and magic belt) to promote love and inspire desire.
This beautiful, decadent body oil is swirling with delights; rose petals hand-dropped into each bottle, rose quartz (the stone of love) present like a beating heart at the bottom, green tea infused into the nutrient-rich plant oils and the beautiful balance of sultry, relaxing and uplifting essential oils. This oil leaves a natural glow on the skin, promoting a healthy and well-cared-for appearance, with no synthetic fragrance along the way.
Simple yet extravagant, & inspired by love.
Uses & Directions:
Use as a daily moisturising body oil, as a massage oil or as a fragrant and nourishing addition to a bath (note that it does not foam).
Tip: adding an oil to slightly damp skin (e.g. after a shower) helps lock in moisture. (This is also true of the Lady Grey Glow Balm, Coconut Rose & Walnut Lip Hand & Body Butter and Wild Mother Nourishing Bump Oil).
