Firstly though, I urge you to try her hand-pressed extra virgin coconut oil. It is seriously the best one I have ever tried in terms of flavor and purity. I don't know if the hand-pressing method makes a huge difference because if not, Bali must be the source of this best-tasting coconut flesh ever landed on my taste buds. If you like a bolder taste of coconut, absolutely give this a try. I solely use it for my daily intake because the flavour is that gooood!
Now let's jump onto the product reviews.
Paradise Hand & Body Balm ($29)

I love to use this on my hands and feet after washing so that they are soft and supple. You might be scared to try this out because there is a number of warm spices listed, but I think the Lemongrass & Lemon gives it a sweet-sour balance while the Peppermint and Vetiver lends its menthol and balsamic quality. The scent is best experienced after a morning shower or a bath during sunset because it is gorgeously refreshing. It's like sipping on my favorite honey, lemon and ginger drink!
Ingredients: Coconut oil, Virgin Coconut oil, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax*, Pure essential oils of Lemongrass, Peppermint, Vetiver, Lemon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Geranium.

In Love Perfume Balm ($24)

I have to admit, I just grew to appreciate the scent of Ylang Ylang alone and I love it now. In-Love becomes one of my favorite smelling things to date! "Top notes include Ylang Ylang and Rose followed by Geranium, Rosemary and Orange in its heart, finishing off with sensual vetiver and Australian Sandalwood". For someone who always steers into sweet and spicy dessert as perfume, this is a big refreshing change for me when I want to smell fresh and floral. The woody base prevents the floral notes to overtake and the middle notes keep everything smelling oriental and fresh. I apply this to my pulse points as a perfume scent but I also like to do it the Tata-Harper way, applying it on the tip of my fingers and take 5 deep breathes before I head out to release stress and anxiety. The scent makes me feel pretty as well.
Ingredients: Castor oil*, Coconut oil*, Beeswax*, Shea Butter*, Avocado Oil*, Egyptian Geranium Oil*, Petitgrain Oil*, Ylang Ylang Oil*, Sandalwood Oil*, Vetiver Root Oil*, Rosemary Leaf Oil*, Orange Peel Oil*, Rose Oil*.

I purchased mine from Peachy Clean and took advantage of buy 2 & get a free hand & body balm deal. But you can get them too from Indah Organics, my favorite I Am Natural Store and Apothecary Store. Australian product, 100% natural and organic, cruelty-free, gives back to Orang Utan Survival in Borneo!
