Nourish Body Oil
A light but intensely moisturising organic body oil designed to nourish your skin as well as your mind.
Seaweed infused organic jojoba oil, combined with organic almond and apricot kernel oil, deeply soothes and hydrates skin. Full of essential vitamins, fatty acids and anti-oxidants, the seaweed infused oil helps improve skin tone and elasticity, leaving you with soft and supple skin.
Scented with a blend of organic essential oils, lavender, eucalyptus and juniper berry, to help calm and refresh, much like being near, or in, the sea.
Handmade in small batches on the tiny island of St. Martin’s, Isles of Scilly.
Rituals for Use
Massage the oil to damp skin to lock in moisturise and deeply hydrate skin.
Our Nourish Body Oil is a very versatile product. For five different rituals you could try using the body oil, head over to this journal post.
If you have 20 minutes and are looking for total relaxation, I am delighted to share with you a beautiful self- massage ritual created by therapist Tia Tambyln, exclusively for the Phoenix & Providence Community. You can watch the guided video here.
And breathe… Take a moment to inhale fully, close one nostril with your finger, and exhale. Repeat, closing the opposite nostril. Continue, alternating for several counts, to help balance and calm your parasympathetic nervous system.
Inhale through your nose, exhale through your mouth, releasing any tension from your body. On the next exhale, release any tension from your mind, and on the third exhale release any emotional tension.
Why P & P Skincare?
The seaweed used in Phoenix & Providence skincare is grown in the crystal clear waters surrounding the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The seaweed is foraged from the shores of the beautiful island of St. Martin’s, dried in the Scillonian sunshine and infused in organic jojoba oil for a full lunar cycle.
You can find out more about Seaweed Harvesting on the Isles of Scilly on the Phoenix & Providence journal.
Seaweed is rich in anti-oxidants and essential vitamins that help promote collagen, improving skin tone, texture and elasticity. The anti- inflammatory properties of seaweed, along with a unique blend of minerals, help soothe and repair, making it the perfect ingredient for all skin types.

Limonene, Linalol naturally occurring in essential oils
Not only does this body oil smell divine, it’s also leaves my dry eczema skin soft and bright. I love using it on my legs after shaving.
I use this after showering and my skin feels amazing. It has a beautiful, light scent that reminds me of the sea, is silky to use and sinks in really fast. My skin really does feel so much softer since I started using this.
Feels gentle on my body and smells heavenly for my nose
This is the second product I tried from Phoenix & Providence. Again, it is gentle on the skin and sinks in without leaving a greasy spoon feeling. It smells heavenly too. Some evenings after putting on the oil, I'll make myself a hot drink and when I come back to my bedroom, the scent still lingers in the room and it feels so good to be 'welcomed back' into the room in this way. I also want to add that the paper Ella uses for the label is oil-friendly - meaning when your are handling the bottle with remnants of the body oil on your fingers after application - the texture and quality of the label means that there will be no oily stains left on the label. Imagine it takes you a couple of months to finish the oil and in between, you keep seeing the oily stains that has built up to 'decorate' the label in between uses, Hardly a pleasant or relaxing sight to see an oil-stain label, right? I'm a designer, so maybe I noticed these things. But it is these little things that adds to a wonderful user experience and quietly shows you the thought and care the maker has put into her work.
a lovely product
A beautifully soothing , nourishing body oil with all the special qualities of the seas around the beautiful Isles of Scilly. Ella's products make lovely gifts for daughters-in-law!
I have bought this body oil a few times now and use it more or less on a daily basis - it is non-greasy and easily absorbs into the skin. Feel like the goodness of the sea is transferred!
