The Sanctuary Relax Warming Body Oils

There's nothing better for melting muscle tension, in our book, than a massage with hot stones. But if you can't stretch to one of those, these have something of the same soothing power.

Toss one of these little vials in the bath, while you're bathing (the heat already starts to unkink the muscles, of course).  Then when you emerge, pat skin dry, snap off the stopper and massage the warmed oil into your body.  The all-natural blend is rich and unctuous, including sweet almond, castor and jojoba oils.  (NB  If you need to, you can pop the stopper back in and use the tube again in future.)

The tension-busting scent's divine - think:  labdanum to relax, cedarwood for clarity, and calming vetiver (oh how we  adore vetiver...)

We also not only love skin's ultra-nourished feel, after application, but the feeling of that warmth seeping deep into our tight muscles...

Hot stones?  We're almost going cold on the prospect - since with these, you simply slip straight into your own comfy bed afterwards, for a deep, deep sleep...
