Wrap yourself in a sweet warming scent of freshly cut figs, one of the earliest fruits consumed by humans!
The body butter does contain fig extract for the scent, but the key ingredients are Shea Butter and the oil of another fruit – the Avocado, for their softening, nourishing and moisturising properties. Believe it or not, the Avocado is botanically classed as a very large single seeded berry! Price £12.50 from Indulge Beauty.
It is nutty fact but coconut is actually a stone fruit (drupe).
Formulated with 87% thirst quenching Brazilian coconut water and a splash of apple water, this facial mist helps give an instant boost of hydration to your skin as fatty acids in the coconut water form an invisible lightweight layer to prevent moisture loss. Can be used as a toner as well as a hydrating mist.
Paraben, sulphate and mineral oil free.

Grab your toothbrush – you’ve pulled!
The coconut strikes again as its oil is said to be most effective medium in attracting (or pulling) Streptococcus Mutans – the main bacteria that causes teeth cavities.
Flavours include Raspberry Kisses and Lemon & Fennel Sparkle.
Oil pulling refers to swishing oil in the mouth to activate those enzymes in the saliva that fight germs, prevents bad breath, protect tooth enamel and prevents tooth decay and gum disease. Oil pulling also helps whiten the teeth’s appearance.
Best to use first thing in the morning before drinking or eating and before brushing your teeth.
How to Use: Swish in the mouth for 5–10 minutes, spit it out (don’t swallow) rinse your mouth and then brush your teeth.
