NEW LEAF Lavender & Patchouli Body Cream.
We hope you enjoy our Lavender & Patchouli Body Cream as much as we do. Like Orange & Sandalwood it makes a good double act and is equally popular with men as with women. When you first apply the cream you notice lavender, then after a few minutes the earthy patchouli scent becomes apparent, adding its grounding balance to the overall perfume. For an alternative rich body cream see our Orange & Sandalwood Body Cream.
Lavender & Patchouli Body Cream has an almond oil base combined with our own organic lavender oil. Almond oil contains Vitamins A, D and E and omegas-9 & -6 (essential fatty acids).
As well as nourishing, it softens and revitalises the skin. Lavender soothes, heals and calms inflamed areas. It is well known for its calming properties and has a reputation for helping sleep, so this is a nice cream to use before bed.
Suitable for all skin types, this is one of our slightly richer body creams.
Why do we use lavender in our Lavender & Patchouli Body Cream?
Lavender is probably the most well known of essential oils. It is common knowledge that it calms and relaxes and can help sleep. It is less well known for its healing properties, of which there are many. It is used on the skin to calm and treat acne, allergies, athlete’s foot, bruises, burns, chicken pox, cuts, dermatitis, insect bites, itching, oily skin, scars and stretch marks – to name but a few!
We include it in a number of our creams as it helps conditions such as eczema and psoriasis as well as benefitting the complexion. Lavender oil is full of antioxidants which slow down the aging process.
Why do we use Patchouli in our Lavender & Patchouli Body Cream?
Patchouli is astringent so it stimulates the skin and helps slow down certain aging processes like sagging of skin and muscles. Its action can also help to limit bruising. It helps to balance moisture and oil levels within the skin which helps to ease several skin conditions like dermatitis, acne and eczema. This oil also lessens the formation of scars, wrinkles and fine lines so bearing in mind all of the above we feel it needs no further justification or explanation! It makes such a perfect partner for the lavender, and renders Lavender & Patchouli body cream suitable for both men and women.
