Wild Romantic Body Butter With Shea & Marula
I was intrigued to try this pot of body butter because a) I love body butters and b) I have no clue what Marula is! Turns out that the Marula tree is Africa’s most romantic of trees because you can get either male or female trees (no idea how you tell) and is linked to romance, love and fertility. In Africa, if a woman thinks she would like a son, she takes bark from the male tree and for a daughter bark from the female tree and makes it into a drinkable infusion. What is great about this story is that it is a win/win. If you get what you wanted, then much rejoicing, but if you don’t then it is a double celebration because it is said you have a very special child who can defy the spirits.
That aside, Marula fruit and also nuts are rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and oleic acid.. which for skin translates to happiness. Romantic Body Butter is infused with Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Lavender which translates to a delicate fragrance that is delicious. And, it hasn’t been fragranced with a heavy hand so you wear it, it doesn’t wear you. The cream is an easily blendable formula that disappears into your skin and leaves it really very softened and flexible. The fragrance reminds me of some Haus of Gloi products that I’ve had in the past.
Last things you need to know about Wild is that it uses fairly traded ingredients from Africa and is sls and paraben free. Romantic Body Butter is £14.50 and you can find it here: http://www.mywild.co.uk/all-products
