OPHELIA Body Oil
SCENT PROFILE: Cedarwood - Blackberry - Aching Hearts
“When down her weedy trophies and herself fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide; and, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes; as one incapable of her own distress, or like a creature native and indued unto that element: but long it could not be
till that her garments, heavy with their drink, pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay to muddy death.” -- Shakspeare, Hamlet
Tragedy, longing, and innocence. On days when the rain is pouring with such fervor, you cannot see, and your soul is ready to begin its swift descent into madness — pour a cup of tea and remember that, unlike Ophelia, you will not retire singing to a watery grave. We weep for the shattered soul of Shakespeare’s most innocent and ill-used maiden. This body oil is scented with the sweetness of blackberries, the depth of forest cedar, and the most deeply aching of hearts.
Our Ophelia body oil contains a miniature rosebud, a dried daisy bloom, and tiny sweet plum flowers. No mica in this one, just blackberry tears, and the greatest intensity of feeling. Wear her for deeply tragic afternoons when you wish for rain and sorrowful poems. She is a beautiful companion for our Ophelia candle, and they are quite charming sitting side by side.
