I've been testing out these exquisite body oils* by MAULI Rituals which were created for the MAULI Rituals Spa Treatments at the Bulgari Hotel. You can see my review of the Discover MAULI kit HERE.
Surrender (Vata) Body Oil* is a comforting blend which balances the Vata energies within us. It's great when you are feeling stressed and anxious, to relax aching bones and encourage a restful night's sleep. The scent instantly calms me (and is my favourite). It's a blend of chamomile, frankincense, ylang ylang, spikenard, may chang, geranium and vetivert in a base of sweet almond and sesame.
To use: massage onto the body starting from your feet, working up towards your middle and then moving to arms, shoulder, the back of your neck and ears. Apply before bed or wait 20 minutes for the oils to penetrate before having a warm bath. The ritual is the same for all the oils.
Serenity (Pitta) Body Oil* is my second favourite. It balances, pacifies a firey mood, nervous tension, strengthens joints and soothes inflamed skin. This cooling and aromatic blend is made with bergamot, lavender, lime, spearmint, sandalwood and rose absolute in a base of evening primrose, sweet almond and jojoba oils.
Spirited (Kapha) Body Oil* which helps to give you more get-up-and-go, relieves flu-like symptoms and uplifts when feeling low. With restorative oils of frankincense, ginger, juniper berry with stimulating eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint and cinnamon in a base of sweet almond and grapeseed. The oil can boost a sluggish metabolism, ease joint pain, alleviate sinus and respiratory symptoms, condition and awaken a loving heart.
