Today I have both a new product and what is, to me at least, a newly discovered brand to introduce to you.
Bodhi & Birch are a British company who specialise in manufacturing high-quality natural skin- and bodycare, using the finest essential oils and ingredients. Founded by Elijah Choo and drawing inspiration from the healing power of nature, Bodhi & Birch products are a fusion of Eastern and Western skincare and wellbeing philosophies, combining the latest cosmetic science with traditional botanical remedies. With their luxurious formulas Bodhi & Birch aim to awaken your mind, indulge your senses and enlighten your skincare ritual.
The latest addition to their range are the Aromatic Bath & Shower Therapies, packed full of precious essential oils and active botanicals to rejuvenate skin and enhance well-being, and I was lucky enough to win a bottle of the Camomile Sky blend.
Amongst the myriad of natural, skin friendly ingredients in the Camomile Sky Bath & Shower Therapy (£18, 200ml) is a potent blend of carefully chosen essential oils: Camomile is a highly anti-inflammatory oil known to bring a sense of calm whilst helping to raise the spirits. Neroli is calming yet uplifting, with skin regenerative properties it helps to repair and tone skin. Geranium, another essential oil renowned for its healing and soothing effects, particularly on irritated skin. And finally Bergamot lifts the spirits, relieves tension and alleviates stress. The formula also contains Lactic Acid; an alpha hydroxy acid with anti-ageing and skin rejuvenating properties.
I am really smitten with the heady perfume and the beautifully soft lather of this product, and when I stepped out of the shower the scent lingered on my skin, which felt baby soft yet thoroughly cleansed. I also felt totally destressed and very uplifted – ready to start the day!
Aesthetic-wise the packaging looks so classy, adding to the high quality feel of the product. But probably most importantly of all I am impressed that only natural botanical ingredients and natural foaming agents are used in this gorgeous product with none of the usual nasties such as SLS, parabens and mineral oil.
Every ingredient Bodhi & Birch use is ethically sourced from sustainable origins and of course completely cruelty-free. I love that this seems to be a company with a heart and their love for making high-quality, ethically sound products shines through.
Bodhi & Birch has become a cult favourite of beauty insiders and celebrities alike and is stocked in only the finest specialty boutiques such as Stanwells and Les Senteurs Perfumery and highly respected department stores like Fortnum & Mason, Jarrold and Fenwicks. After using their Camomile Sky Bath & Shower Therapy it’s so easy to see why and I’m definitely eager to explore more of the range.
