Exotic Incense Scented Lotion
The smell of this exotic incense scented lotion is what makes it so popular but the high-end moisturizing power keeps people coming back. If you are seeking a wonderful lotion and love the scent one might associated with traveling to exotic places, incense, hippy perfume and head shops, do I have the perfect lotion for you!
Nag Champa fragrance is the most common of the incense fragrances. Incense and variations of Nag Champa have been around for thousands of years. Incense was used for pleasure and offerings to gods even before the Egyptians. Nag Champa as it exists today originally came to us from Hindu or Buddhist monasteries of India and Nepal. Each temple had their own secret and sacred formula.
The scent of sandalwood is always predominate in Nag Champa. Champaka, the scent of magnolia, or plumeria is always subtly present as is other resins and scents like patchouli, myrrh and amber.
I have tested a lot of Nag Champa and Champaka fragrances and I have created my own using a phthalate free base fragrance. My Nag Champa fragrance contains at least 50% pure essential oils including Turmeric, Patchouli, Frankincense, Amyris (Indian Sandalwood) and just a touch of Birch Tar. This has created a scent that is earthy, grounding and emotionally healing. It works for both men and women. If you want the scent without the lotion or want both, see my listing for Nag Champa Roll-on Fragrance. I also make a very popular Sea Salt Nag Champa Soap.
Turmeric Infused Exotic Incense Lotion
Although fragrance of a lotion can be very important to many people, high quality ingredients are the most important factor to me. I have used a lot of Turmeric including turmeric powder and turmeric essential oil. It smells fresh and spicy but gives the lotion anti-inflammatory and antioxidant power. It is the curcumin in turmeric that protects skin, helps heal scars and keeps skin healthy.
Powerful Blend of Oils
I’ve chosen my blend of Oils in my Nag Champa Lotion for easy absorption and non-greasy moisturizing.
Babassu is especially good for skin with all the benefits coconut and shea butter without leaving your skin feeling oily.
Avocado oil is rich in plenty of biologically active compounds like tocopherols, tocotrienols, phytosterols, carotenoids, and polyphenols. This make Avocado oil a rich skin oil with collagen boosting anti-inflammatory impact.
Of course, Olive Oil is widely believed to exert potent anti-inflammatory activities on the skin. It has also shown antioxidant and wound healing benefits and may even have some benefits to skin cancer. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5796020/
I included glycerin and sodium lactate as these bring moisture to the skin (humectants) without evaporating. I use both because they each have special qualities. Sodium Lactate is more moisturizing and lighter but goes away more easily. Glycerin is thicker and has longer staying power. Together I think they are perfect.
And I include jojoba oil because it is great for skin and is the closest oil we have to duplicating our own natural skin moisture.
