LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 28, 2011 – With permission from her grandmother, Felecia Scott, founder of Wild Beauty uses her family’s century old beauty recipes to change the way people think and use body oils, which they call aroma-therapeutic oils. It takes two months to infuse grapeseed, olive and jojoba oils with therapeutic and natural fragrances from flowers and herbs. Essential oils are added to enhance and compliment the flowers and herbs infused in the oil.
“As a young girl growing up in Connecticut, I was always helping my grandmother. We would be in the garden collecting herbs and flowers or in the kitchen making ointments,” said Felecia Scott. “I watched fascinated as my grandmother brewed tea leaves to make her lotions. Infusing oils with fresh, herbs and flowers, their fragrance permeated in the oil. My passion for making skin care products began.”
The lavender vanilla and basil sage and mint aroma-therapeutic oils have quickly become customer favorites. Lavender flowers infuse with extra virgin olive oil. Sage and mint leaves infuse with grapeseed and jojoba oils. Both oils come in 2 oz bottles and cost $20.00 each.
On the website customers get tips on how to use Wild Beauty’s products, such as hot oil treatments for hair, facial moisturizer, combine with sugar as a body scrub and an aftershave for men. The aroma-therapeutic oil penetrates deep into the skin and provide long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple. Explore the rest of the collection here.
