Rediscover the magic of oils to treat and care for mind, body and spirit. We have a natural affinity with precious plant oils like jojoba and coconut, which absorb well into skin and hair unlike the greasy mineral oils of yore. With oil-based cleansers, serums and even make-up primers you can douse your- self from head-to-toe. Anoint thyself.
