This Edmonton-based line only uses the highest quality carrier oils, that are blended for maximum absorption and hydration, and a carefully balanced ratio of essential oils like wood, herb, floral and citrus. The end result is smooth, regenerated hair and skin, and a calming self-care ritual. Treat yourself, and your partner, to petal-infused skin oil or a little ground coffee shower scrub.
