The Dr. Hauschka range of luxurious, and rather addictive Body Oils, envelop you with an aura of fragrance while providing rich nutrition for your skin.
We recommend applying Dr. Hauschka Body Oil on skin that’s still moist from the shower or bath. The water and oil then form an emulsion directly on your skin, which is rapidly absorbed.
Our Body Oils are especially composed to suit different moods and dispositions, providing a varied selection for all seasons. The plants at the heart of the oils are established medicinal herbs, which have specific effects on the mind and body. Depending on your particular needs at the time, choose a Dr. Hauschka Body Oil that relaxes or fortifies, calms or refreshes.
Blackthorn Toning Body Oil
Toning and warming
Dr.Hauschka Blackthorn Toning Body Oil strengthens and warms the skin. The harmonious composition of Blackthorn, Birch leaves and St.John’s wort is designed to firm the skin. With its pleasant fragrance this magical body oil gives a sense of renewed vitality and well-being for the day ahead. Blackthorn Body Oil strengthens connective tissue reducing the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy, weight loss or gain. The formula is based on plant extracts, with only a minute amount of essential oils for aroma. My personal autumn/winter favourite, because I feel focused and strengthened when I’m ‘wearing’ Blackthorn Toning Body Oil. At my morning coffee stop my ‘perfume’ is regularly complimented on when I’m wearing this Oil as well.
Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil
Revitalises after physical activity
Physical activity and exercise serve to activate the body’s metabolic rate. When we perspire our body excretes waste products through the skin. With hints of Mint and Lemon, Dr. Hauschka’s Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil refreshes the body and maintains moisture levels, leaving skin soft and supple. The formula, containing skin-fortifying Birch leaves, Arnica, Burdock and Nettle activates the skin’s metabolism and encourages blood circulation whilst providing soothing warmth to tense muscles and tender joints. A massage with Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil before and after physical activity helps to keep the muscles and connective tissue flexible and prevents muscular aches and pains.
Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil
Refreshing and firming
Women are only too familiar with the unsightly appearance of cellulite, which develops as fat cells swell and push through the elastic connective tissues in the skin, causing the ‘orange peel’ effect on the skin’s surface. Cellulite can only be managed with a comprehensive treatment plan, starting by stimulating the circulation in the affected areas. Regular massage with the refreshingly citrus Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil can help. The invigorating formula containing Jojoba oil, Lemon Peel, Mistletoe, Horsetail and Lemongrass helps to firm the skin and fortify the connective tissue. A diet low in fat and sugar also helps to discourage cellulite, as will regular exercise. This Body Oil is perfect to bring about a revitalising start to the day and it’s my summer time favourite.
Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil
Protects and soothes the skin and the senses
Sometimes we feel as though we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil with rich Shea Butter and Jojoba envelops your skin in a soothing layer of protection. This creamy, two-phase formula with extracts of Horse Chestnut and Horsetail also incorporates the protective qualities of Moor (peat) extract, prepared in our special rhythmic procedure. Moor gives you a sense of being protected from external influences, and is supportive in times of stress or indeed for people with a sensitive nature. The gentle natural fragrance of Lavender essential oil has a relaxing effect and promotes calm, deep sleep. Also may be used as a ‘layer’ of protection for children.
Rose Nurturing Body Oil
Harmonises and nurtures the skin and the senses
Every so often the skin and senses yearn for a little indulgence and nurturing care. This is the ideal time to treat yourself to the luxuriously fragrant and exotic Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Oil. Extract of Damask Roses, exquisite natural Rose essential oil and Jojoba oil create a balancing, harmonising body oil that helps relieve tension and emotional exhaustion and leaves your skin feeling silky-soft. Dr. Hauschka has worked tirelessly to obtain Damask Roses of the very finest organic/biodynamic quality. The quality of Persian roses is well known and we share our knowledge and experience of organic cultivation with Rose farmers in Afghanistan, Iran, Bulgaria and Turkey. More recently we have initiated a Rose Project in the Ethiopian Highlands.
Rose Body Oil is perfect as a baby massage oil, just remember to wrap your baby in a towel for carrying after a massage, in case he or she is still a little ‘slippery’.
Almond St.John’s Wort Soothing Body Oil
Soothes dry and sensitive skin and brings sunshine to your day
Sometimes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. In today’s hectic world, many children and adults alike find they have such sensitive, thin skin that they cannot fully protect themselves against external influences, and their skin reacts by becoming red, itchy and flaky. Almond St. John’swort Soothing Body Oil, containing soothing St. John’swort and Hops to smooth the skin and help keep it supple. It is also an excellent choice for a calming massage. St. John’swort is said to capture the summer solstice sunshine and I find it brings a cheerfulness to my morning skin care regime.
