Bodhi Jasmine Falls Body Lotion
I was recently very lucky and was sent this gift set of Body lotion and bath gel to trial. I cannot believe how lovely these products are.
“Bodhi means “enlightenment”. Directly translated, it is “to awaken” or “to understand”. The Bodhi Tree, also known as the Sacred Fig or Bo Tree, is the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life.”
Having called themselves ‘Bodhi’, they feel they have a responsibility to create eco friendly, organic ingredients. The ingredients are ethically sourced from sustainable growers. The ingredients are plant-based , blended with the finest quality essential oils and absolutes which are added in sufficient quantities to be effective.
All their products are free from harsh synthetics such as parabens and sulphates, and Petrochemicals, Sulphates, Parabens, Phthalates, Glycols, PEGs, DEAs, Synthetic Polymers, Synthetic Fragrance or Colours, Palm Oil or Animal Ingredients. They have no animal ingredients, except beeswax and honey.
They put all their products in recycled plastic and papers which offsets their carbon footprint by 68% according to their website.
None of their products are tested on animals but they do use volunteer humans which I would eagerly volunteer for if they are looking.
“Cocoon your skin in our euphoric blend of Jasmine Absolute and High-Altitude Lavender to help soothe the mind and promote a sense of well-being. Organic Shea Butter, Kukui Nut and Coconut oils deeply moisturise to leave your skin relaxed and radiant. Smooth over skin and breath in the relaxing aroma to help calm and de -stress the mind.”
Wow! This is fabulous stuff. It smells absolutely gorgeous. The scent is strong and I find it not only relaxing and beautiful but also very sensuous too. I just love jasmine and find it heady and so long lasting as a fragrance.
I just smooth this over my bathed body and it sinks in so quickly and easily. There is no greasy feel it just leaves my skin feeling well nourished and soft as well as just smelling wonderful.
This has to be one of the nicest smelling body lotions I have come across. It smells obviously and strongly of jasmine and sandalwood but so natural and lasts ages on my skin.When I use this I can sit for hours and lift my arm to have a quick sniff and hit of the lovely sensuous aroma. I just can’t get enough of it.So in this bottle you have jasmine essential oil which soothes the skin and helps to relax and calm the mind.They have also included a ‘High-Altitude Lavender’ which is also very relaxing and helps to heal and calm skin too. It has also found to be great at stimulating skin cell re growth.The moisturising comes from two great natural ingredients Kukui Nut Oil with lots of vitamins A & E and omegas which help skin cell renewal.Finally lovely nutty smelling Shea Butter again with vitamins A & E and this is not only moisturising but also helps to soothe skin. Shea butter contains Vitamin F and special acids which help improve the skin’s elasticity so making it younger in appearance.
So not only is this a fabulously luxurious and great smelling lotion but it really does your skin and mind good.It feels gorgeous as you apply it sinking in quickly yet leaving the skin soft and not wet or greasy to touch.Having used this for a few weeks now I can honestly say my skin feels softer and looks much softer and tighter and even a bit younger than it did. Bodhi do say that because of the high content of essential oils, this may not be suitable for use during pregnancy or for very young children. If you are concerned I would check with your doctor or save buying it until after your pregnancy
They say this should be stored away from heat and light and once you have opened it use it within six months to enjoy it at its best. That will be no hardship for me!
So in short this is a really strong, relaxing and rather sensuous scented body lotion full of natural goodness and essential oils but I will say it is a bit expensive if you are on a limited budget. For 250 ml of product you pay £23 but it is packaged beautifully and looks a luxurious product.
