Breath of Clarity Uplifting Body & Massage Oil
Breath of Clarity Uplifting Body & Massage Oil
Our rather chic Body & Massage Oil is a luminous golden elixir of potent botanical essences that brings your body deep healing and radiance. It was first discovered by French Vogue, when Lola was only selling a few fragrant things as a weekend hobby (in her fancy tutu) at London Spitalfields Market!
Plant oils have been used for thousands of years, across many cultures, to moisturise and protect the skin. We artfully hand blend rosehip CO2, Moroccan argan oil and vitamin E to transform dull, dry skin, erase stretch marks (hello new mummies), and smooth over signs of ageing. You can use this multi-tasker all over your beautiful face, body, hair and nails.
Rosehip CO2: a rich source of trans-retinoic acid and omega 3, 6 and 9 for skin regeneration. Clinically proven to effectively erase stretch marks, age spots and fine lines.
Argan Oil: one of nature's richest sources of vitamin E for powerful antioxidant action. Potent plant sterols help heal scar tissue and repair sun damage. Improves skin texture and boosts radiance.
Sweet Almond Oil: good source of vitamin E, easily absorbed with excellent emollient property, kind on sensitive skin and great for strong, healthy nails
Peach Kernel Oil: a light yet nourishing oil that improves hair texture and shine
Vitamin E powerful antioxidant to repair free radical damage and improves skin elasticity
Eucalyptus stimulates the mind and aids concentration. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties provide effective relief from muscle and joint pain.
Peppermint is cooling and stimulating. Helps unblock sinuses, ease muscle aches and soothes indigestion.
Sweet Marjoram is warming and relaxing. Its antispasmodic property helps soothe tickly coughs, aching muscles and joints, also effective for digestive issues.
Rosemary improves circulation and is a good decongestant, also promotes mental focus.
By far the quickest way to moisturise the entire body is to apply body oil right after a shower. On wet skin (yes, don’t dry off yet!), massage a handful of the liquid gold all over the body, moving towards the heart – it takes less than a minute. Moisture from the shower helps the oil sink into the skin, while the loving pressure of massage movement boosts circulation and aids lymphatic drainage.
Rub a drop of oil between your fingers, lightly dab on those pesky dry patches on the face to smooth foundation.
Transform your blow dry by warming a few drops between palms and distributing to the ends of your hair beforehand, to add shine and tame frizz.
Massage some oil into cuticles and nail beds at night for strong, shiny nails. It's a nice little night time ritual to love your body temple.
Apply some oil on your nails after a manicure to help protect the newly applied polish.
Use as a facial cleansing oil to effectively remove makeup, it will even remove mascara! As a sensible precaution, do a patch test first as your face tends to be more sensitive than the skin on your body.
Of course, it makes a great massage oil too. We recommend a candle lit home massage with one of our naturally fragrant candles!

Meet The Designer
Lola’s Apothecary began as these dreamy stories do, with a whimsical girl and a rose, in a fabulous city of bright lights and large umbrellas, the city of London. Lola adores roses, fresh air and random acts of kindness. Dancing through the old city, she masqueraded as a creative professional, while mostly lingering at perfumeries and tea shops. In her tiny kitchen, alongside exotic spices and sweet delights, she would conjure up homemade potions based on age old beauty wisdom to care for her sensitive skin. After gifting a friend at a birthday party, her fragrant things became sought after via word of mouth. Lola was inspired to create a range of beauty wonders that marries effective natural skincare with the perfumed glamour that makes conventional, often chemically laden cosmetics so appealing. Lola was soon joined by Dominic, an intrepid soul who shares Lola’s vision of beauty and grace. In the winter of 2013, they embarked on an adventure to find a new home beyond the city walls. Together they run Lola’s Apothecary on a picturesque cattle farm in Devon, in between cooking, tending to the vegetable garden and lashings of clotted cream. At the heart of Lola’s Apothecary is a belief in wellness and a holistic approach to life. Lola and Dominic wish that their lovingly handmade products would not only bless one with gorgeous skin, but also become a welcome part of one’s self care ritual, to provide a momentary retreat from the vivid dance of life.
