FLOWER DUET- nourishing moisturiser for Body, Feet and Hands with Rose & Jasmine
This organic body balm is a rich moisturiser for dry skin areas and for sun-damaged skin. It is lightly scented with luxurious rose wax and contains rare botanical butters from India. We've added Frankincense, Jasmine and Neroli essential oils to the rose middle note to give it a mystical, enchanting aroma.
We call it a "rough diamond", as it feels amazing on the skin but is a bit grainy compared to our other balms.
Rich, a bit grainy, the balm melts easily on the skin and feels divine on any dry skin areas!
Of all our balms, this one has the roughest texture due to the use of hard rose wax and sal (shorea) Indian butter in the formula. If you'd prefer a smoother balm, we recommend the body gourmand balm instead.
Strong rose fragrance from the vegan rose wax used in the balm. Deep balsamic and floral scent with notes of Frankincense, Jasmine and Neroli.
This is the scented version of a similar body balm, Rani Mama. They both share the same base formulation and core ingredients, but Flower Duet contains essential oils while Rani Mama does not. Both balms have a strong rose aroma.
White balm with uneven tones. Some batches may have a light frosting appearance on the top when first opened.
About the ingredients
Flower Duet is part of our Indian balms and contains traditional ingredients from India.
Kokum butter is a solid fat obtained from cold pressing the seeds of the Garcinia indicia tree - also referred to as goa butter. It is often used in traditional products to soften skin, restore elasticity and heal ulcerations and fissures of lips, hands and soles of feet.
Sal (shorea) butter is a cold-pressed butter obtained from the seeds of Shorea Robusta, also known as the Sal Tree. Rich in Stearic and Oleic fatty acids, Shorea (Sal) Butter is an excellent conditioner for skin and hair restoring softness and elasticity. It is believed to provide soothing and anti-inflammation properties.

Flower Duet, a song of beauty
"Flower Duet" is a famous song from the French opera "Lakmé". Some of the words of that song inspired Lily (O+N founder) to create this balm's unique scent:
Under the thick dome where the white jasmine
With the roses entwined together
On the river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning
Let us descend together!
You can listen to a beautiful version of this song with Australian soprano Dame Joan Sutherland here.
We are an australian family business
All our products are handmade with love in Melbourne, Australia.
We are very passionate about supporting the local economy. That's why all our ingredients are sourced from Australian companies, and all our labels are also supplied and printed by an Australian company.
Eco friendly packaging
We focus on using quality, re-usable or recyclable packaging.
Unfortunately, most dispensing systems, such as essential oil dripolators and glass pumps, end up in landfil. That's why many of our products are sold with a choice of closure: you can order the dispensing system you'd like the first time, and then re-use it for your next product.
The majority of skincare products use plastic labels. These also end up in landfil or break down in the ocean into micro-plastics. That's why all our labels are made of sustainably-sourced paper and are recyclable and biodegradable.
We do not use any plastic when packing your order.
