The hedge witch meanders slowly through the forest with basket in hand, communing with the trees, quietly gathering wildflowers, roots, and mushrooms. She works in partnership with these magnificent plants to wildcraft her botanical potions. One such formulation she makes with the fluffy white and rosy meadowsweet blossoms she forages and the vibrant orange calendula blooms from her garden—a sensual, fragrant, 'body and soul care' offering called Hedge Witch Body Oil. The plants are lovingly and slowly infused in safflower oil, then blended with high quality, pure essential oils of sustainably sourced frankincense and copaiba, resulting in a blend that nourishes and guards the skin.
Treat yourself to an after-shower or after-bath oil anointing ritual, add a dropperful to your bathwater, indulge in a full-body massage (you can dilute it further with your favorite carrier oil if you wish), or apply this luscious oil whenever you’d like to refresh the sacred temple of your body and your mind. This magickal blend absorbs readily and contains plant-based constituents that moisturize skin, can fade scars and stretch marks, firm skin, increase blood flow, and provide a soothing and calming experience.
The aroma of this body oil is reminiscent of the forest the hedge witch lives in harmony with. Its fragrance is warm, resinous, and deeply earthy, with a slightly sweet note that will transport you as it works its magick.
∆ My oil of choice for this body-care product is safflower oil. It goes on lightly, works for all skin types including sensitive skin, is hydrating, and absorbs readily and quickly. The naturally-occuring vitamin E in this oil helps repair and protect skin. Safflower oil has a super low comedogenic rating of 0, so it will not clog pores.
∆ Essential oils of frankincense and copaiba are used in this formula. **Note: I obtain frankincense essential oil from a company that ethically and sustainably sources it.**
∆ This body oil comes in a charming 2oz. frosted amber glass bottle (to protect from UV damage) with convenient dropper cap.
∆ If using a dropperful of this oil in your bathwater, please be aware that it can make the lining of your tub slippery. Use caution when entering and exiting the bath.
