Orange & Sandalwood Body Cream.

In our opinion orange and sandalwood are made for each other! Like our Lavender & Patchouli rich moisturiser this ORANGE & SANDALWOOD Body Cream is equally popular with men as with women.

When you first apply this cream you notice the light, uplifting orange aroma. Then after a few minutes the more earthy sandalwood perfume comes through. This cream is made with apricot kernel oil which is rich in vitamin E, and omegas-9 & -6 (essential fatty acids).

As well as nourishing, it softens and revitalises the skin. We also include our own organic calendula oil in this recipe, which is very good for replenishing skin and keeping it smooth and healthy. Suitable for all skin types this is one of our slightly richer body creams.

Why do we use Orange in our Orange & Sandalwood Body Cream?

Orange essential oil is used in aromatherapy as an antidepressant. It is said to sooth the mind and relieve stress. Its refreshing aroma relaxes and uplifts and helps to reduce anxiety. Applied to the skin it is said to reduce swelling and inflammation by stimulating the circulation. Acting as a diuretic it helps the body rid itself of excess water, which in turn supports kidney function. This has a domino effect on the whole body as it promotes detoxification via both the urinary system and the lymphatic system. Aromatherapists use orange essential oil on the abdomen to promote digestion by easing constipation. This also results in improved detoxification. Anything which helps detox the body and reduce excess water in the tissues also helps prevent cellulite forming. Externally, Orange essential oil helps to keep skin healthy by inhibiting microbial growth. It is also said to promote collagen production – an essential part of keeping skin young. One of the components of natural essential orange oil is ‘D-limonene’. This is an important nutrient that helps prevent cancer, so it is another good reason why we include it in our Orange & Sandalwood Body Cream.

Why do we use Sandalwood in our Orange & Sandalwood Body Cream?

Sandalwood essential oil, apart from having a gorgeous aroma, has certain beneficial effects on the skin. It is great for reducing or preventing dryness, scarring, stretch marks and skin sensitivity. It helps balance sebum production which reduces excess oil but balances rather than dries the skin. It tones the skin and assists with anti-aging processes by helping to keep the skin hydrated. So all in all a pretty good combination, along with our organic calendula oil what more could your skin want?!
