This fragrance will transport you to the calm comfort of the most pleasant walk in the woods you have ever experienced. The rich spice of frankincense, the literal smell of church and religious gatherings all over the world, is augmented by the mild pine of spruce. This combination is ethereal and intense. Tangerine joins the combination as a lighter scent and latches on to the spicy notes of the Frankincense to make a rich, almost confectionary combination. The result is an intense, soulful, and irresitibly playful perfume.
Frankincense is a skin loving oil that is extracted from sap, which is the life blood of a tree. The nature of frankincense is quite sticky, and even as a liquid essential oil, it is not particularly water soluble and difficult to use on its own. Where it grows, frankincense is used as a preservative, reducing the effect of time on all sorts of organic materials. It has been a precious material used in cosmetic, household, and religious contexts for thousands of years all over the Mediterranean world.
Spruce is traditionally used by the native people who live where it grows in the northern regions as part of the cleansing required to promote healing. It has strong antiseptic qualities, but spruce in particular is mild enough to use on skin. It contributs the aura of pine forest fragrance to your bath.
Tangerine oil, rich in vitamins like Vitamins A and C and beta-carotene, is a natural alternative to chemical versions of these nutrients for your skin. It promotes balance and tones the skin.
Body Butter is richer than a regular body lotion, since it is made up purely of butters and oils. It has no water, which is a primary ingredient in normal, thinner lotions. Whipped Body Butter is lightweight and spreads easily, melting as it is applied so that it feels creamy and goes on smoothly. A very small amount is used, and the oils and butters to soak directly into the skin.
Scoop a small amount from jar with fingers. Smooth onto skin. Product may melt if stored above 95F.
