providing intense moisture and a richly therapeutic scent, this is a body oil that goes beyond the simple effect of hydrating the skin. essential oils are known to be detoxifying and warming; they restore the delicate balance of natural oils in your skin to retain moisture and prevent the drying effects that can lead to collagen breakdown and premature aging. cardamom amber oil melds into the skin -- infused wtih charged black pepper, uplifting sweet orange and the rounded warmth of bergamot -- balancing the seductive spiciness of cardamom.

feel the resonating energy of cracked cardamom pods, that stimulate blood flow and bring warmth and radiance to the skin. from teas to tinctures, cardamom is widely-used spice in the middle east for its internal stimulating properties. cardamom was routinely used to stimulate circulation -- even placed inside shoes to warm the bottom of the feet throughout the day. though spice-infused tea has been an effective headache remedy favored by persians, cardamom is also an essential ingredient to any cup of good, turkish coffee -- enhancing the caffeinated effect that awakens brain wave activity and warms the system. perhaps the most enduring secret of cardamom's legacy is that it is an aphrodisiac -- its powerful virtues are extolled at length in the erotic, ancient text, arabian nights. when blended with highly aromatic amber -- it penetrates deep to relieve aching muscles and balances dry and sensitive skin. moroccan black pepper offers further stimulation, creating a warming sensation on the skin that increases circulation on contact. as an anti-inflammatory, it alleviates muscle aches and recharges the body with renewed sense of vigor.

through extensive travel in the red dusted, spice-laden regions of morocco, spain and turkey, the bathhouse culture of hammams and their indigenous ingredients gave way to this therapeutic oil and the red flower hammam treatment line. the hammam is a place of social, spiritual and physical purification, with a centuries-old tradition of bathing, ritual cleansing and a respect for the purest form of nature -- water. caring for the body is an not only an obligation, but a public institution that follows the region's spiritual teachings. after the detoxification is complete, bathers are adorned in heavy perfumes such as sandalwood to re-enter the world, cleansed and anointed with scent.

serving as a fragrant foundation -- the nutrient-rich oils of apricot and monoi merge to hydrate the skin and restore a lustrous sheen that everyday lotions cannot achieve. extracted from fruits, nuts and seeds, pure cold-pressed oils share a similar composition to the skin's barrier and contain smaller molecules -- allowing them to easily penetrate the skin's delicate layer, providing nourishment and protection. an ample source of essential fatty acids and vitamins, these highly concentrated oils protect the skin's barrier, providing and retaining moisture to alleviate irritation. a fixture in turkish cuisine, apricots were known as the golden fruit and considered a commodity in trade as an exotic sweet that yielded a silken oil for perfume. light in texture but rich in benefits, apricot kernel oil transforms dry, sensitive and mature skin with vitamin a and fatty acids. an equally reputed emollient, monoi oil infuses tiare (tahiti gardenia) flower petals and french polynesian coconut oil. favored by the pacific islanders for centuries, this "sacred oil" is used to protect the skin and hair against the sun and salt water. containing more protein than traditional coconut oil, monoi repairs as it hydrates, shielding the skin against external elements.

a blend of sweet orange and bergamot citrus oils give an air of freshness that brighten the mind and the skin. orange plantations populate the mediterranean coastline, soaking in the energy of the sun, the scent of the wind and the humid sea breeze. woman in the hammam would carry sweet oranges along with water to cleanse the skin and seek refreshment from the hot steam. rich in antioxidants and vitamins a, b, and c, citrus oils work to tone and clean the skin, while balancing dull and tired complexions. bergamot gets its name from mistaken identity. traditionally known as the "prince's pear", and initially misclassified, it grew in abundance along the southern coastline of turkey. this unique extract emits a citrus aroma with a hint of sweetness and spice, and is used in aromatherapy to treat depression and clear the mind.

highly concentrated, this body oil offers superior hydrating benefits. only a small amount is needed to activate a wealth of benefits and create a relaxing sense of warmth and alluring scent that lingers but never overpowers. apply the oil over the entire body as a subtle perfume. to experience the full potential of this rich oil, apply while the skin is still damp from bathing for better absorption. use as a warming massage to work deeply into the muscles and wring out tension from the body before or after exercise. after applying the warm oil over the whole body, hands and feet, layer a generous application of tangerine butter fig creme and cover with a warm towel to seal in moisture. cardamom amber oil also helps to stimulate circulation and increase blood flow as part of the full hammam detoxifying experience -- especially important during seasonal changes and to ease the stress of travel.
