The Amphora Ritual Set.


Limited to just 20 sets, I have partnered with female-founded ceramicist Argilo to create a tactile amphora to hold your Hinoki Self-Massage Oil.

Taking inspiration from ancient vessels, the amphora comes in a smooth glaze with a hand-rolled spherical stopper which doubles as a tool to roll around palms and feet to aid your self-massage. 

Simply pour your oil into the amphora to store. Please be aware that the sphere does not create a tight seal but is intended to keep out dust, so will need to be kept upright and in a safe place. 

The Maker 

Argilo is a small female-owned business based in Cornwall, specialising in handmade ceramics. Argilo ceramic wares are inspired by the warmth and soul of the Mediterranean, by the earthy vistas and slow ways of living. The vessels are devoted to simplicity and everyday functionality, using a warm and natural palette that echo these places. Spending time in the Mediterranean feeds the soul; a place where the senses come alive with joy and warmth. I hope that my ceramics will bring a sense of these places into people’s day-to-day life.

Jaye says "It is important to me that my work communicates an authenticity and humanity. Part of what inspires the products that I produce is the element of ritual and community that surround mealtimes in particular, but also calm moments around the home. That morning cup of coffee, sharing olives from a bowl in the evening, pouring a glass of wine, burning a candle. It’s all about human connection and appreciating the small things."

The Amphora is dishwasher safe although hand washing is recommended. Jaye makes every piece by hand so subtle differences may occur.

The Oil 

A deeply soothing and sensual oil, designed for all over-body anointing, this blend contains nourishing but fast-absorbing oils such as Prickly Pear Seed, Marula, and Camellia - renowned for their vitamin-rich and texture-enhancing properties. 

Anointing the body is one of the greatest expressions of self-love. "Sneha" in Sanskrit, meaning "oil" also translates to "love". 

Abhyanga is the Ayurvedic practice of self-massage, with benefits including increased circulation, aiding in detoxification, better sleep, and softer, smoother skin. 

A key ingredient of the Hinoki Self Massage Oil is Amber - a fossilised tree resin that has been used in cosmetics since ancient times thought to hold rejuvenating and anti-aging properties due to its high levels of anti-oxidant-rich Succinic acid. A common ingredient in traditional massage therapy, Amber is associated with improved circulation and easing muscle tension. 

The blend is infused with adaptogenic Ashwagandha - a herb said to calm, used as far back as 6,000 BC in India as part of Ayurvedic traditions. 

The deep and grounding essential oil blend of mood-boosting blue cypress, red mandarin, and relaxing hinoki help to create an uplifting and soothing moment.

A three-in-one product, use this oil for all-over massage, moisturising, or as a relaxing and nourishing bath oil.

The ritual

I take care of the world when I take care of myself.

To anoint: Warm the oil between palms and gently massage into the body. You can work from the crown - massaging into your scalp, then the face ensuring to work in upward circular strokes, before massaging the ears and ear lobes. Massage the arms and legs in long strokes towards the heart. Massage the chest and stomach in large clockwise circles. Finally, take some time to massage your feet. Allow the oil to penetrate the skin for 5-15 minutes before taking a warm bath or shower. Take extra care when getting out of the bath and gently pat the skin with your towel to dry. 

To moisturise skin: Warm the oil between palms and massage onto clean, dry skin. Apply before or after a bath or shower and great when partnered with our Green Moss Agate Gua Sha tool.

To bathe: Pour a small amount into a warm running bath. Take extra care when getting out of the bath and gently pat the skin with your towel to dry. Always rinse your bath immediately after bathing and take extra care with enamel baths.
