I’ve been asked on countless occasions how I create each Bodhi & Birch product, how it starts and how it comes together. Each is unique, with its own story to tell. Some begin life as a scent memory, while others are inspired by legendary ingredients. And there are those that evolved from crazy ideas which materialise in the moment between sleep and awakening.
Yet all are bound to me, to my spirit and my being. All are made with the utmost of my love and care. From the birth of each Bodhi & Birch blend, the sourcing of rare and unusual ingredients, the research and development, and honing it to perfection. From each bottle to every packaging design, from production, bottling, filling, boxing and finally lovingly packed the order for you. It’s with love.
Tomato Seed Cleansing Oil began life in my greenhouse, inspired by my love of growing heritage tomatoes. The oil from tomato seeds is a byproduct of the food industry, making it highly sustainable. What’s amazing is it’s packed with vitamin E and carotenoid antioxidants such as zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, lutein and lycopene along with phytosterols, polyunsaturated fatty acids and minerals. These help to promote the quick healing of scars, smooth out fine lines and diminish age spots to leave skin fresh, rosy and glowing.
It won Best Cleansing Oil in the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2019, and has since been shortlisted in the Best Cleanser category in the Natural Health International Beauty Awards. I couldn’t be prouder that this little beauty, inspired by the humble tomato, has come this far.
So every time you use a Bodhi & Birch product, remember this… it comes from love and is made with the utmost of care for you. Enjoy x
