I created the anala range of 100% natural perfumed body oils through my passion for the ancient art of perfumery. The Ayurvedic texts mention the use of ‘attar’, a mixture of botanical extracts including oils, to scent the body and lift the spirits. Most commercially produced perfumed products contain very few natural ingredients, with the actual scent created in laboratories.
The oils I select for each blend work synergistically, offering both therapeutic and aesthetic benefits, nourishing the skin and perfuming the body.
The blends are carried in sesame oil and jojoba oil. Sesame oil is the traditional oil of Ayurveda, where it has many uses. It is a truly amazing oil, penetrating the skin quickly, it is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, and it is also anti -inflammatory. Jojoba oil is known to closely resemble our skin sebum, and contains most of the vitamins and minerals we require for healthy skin.
Applying perfumed oils all over the body after bathing allows us to stop and be in the moment, to relax and unwind. Anala body oils are also perfume oils- just rub a few drops into the neck and upper forearms.
All products are blended by hand in small batches and are packaged in beautiful dove grey brushed cotton drawstring bags.
The 100ml bottles are a perfect size for travelling too.
