Summertime. There isn’t a better season to try out beautiful, natural, green beauty body oils. Your tanned, element-battered skin is probably screaming out for some organic, green love moisturizing right about now, the kind that is made right, smells amazing and works for you on multiple levels, including spiritually as well as physically. For me, that natural treatment comes from the lovely essential oils created by my gorgeous friend, spiritual “rock ‘n roll shaman” Angela Shore, who introduced her most recent Soul-Healing Jiva-Apoha oils last week at the West Village’s wellness hub, CAP Beauty boutique, where owners Kerrilynn Pamer and Cindy DiPrima Morisse were on hand to wax poetic on clean, natural and organic.
All Angela’s Jiva-Apoha oils embody a cross between Ayurvedic and Native American Indian healing practices, mixed from the finest organic ingredients imported from India, South America and parts of the US. Made with love by Angela, her oils are packaged in cloth or deer skin medicine bags. At CAP Beauty, the oils co-exist with other like-minded products. CAP shares the green beauty love aesthetic, carrying only the finest, greenest cosmetics and skin care lines, from RMS Beauty to La Bella Figuera to Vintner’s Daughter.
Jiva-Apoha’s sophisticated sensuality is soul healing, from its newest oils of Thunderbird Body and Mukti (Freedom) to stalwart faves Kama (Love) and Amma (Mother). Added bonus points last Wednesday: Angela guiding new oil converts to oils mixed best for their constitution and scent personality. She also gave each visitor sprigs of white sage, one of the special, sacred ingredients used in her newest oils, perfect for burning away negativity as an incense and, well, heck, they just smell great in a bowl at home!
CAP Beauty is a must-stop destination point on your way to cleaner, greener living, and finding your own skin-nourishing Jiva-Apoha oils is an essential. Hurry! Before summer takes its toll on your skin.
