OUR CHERRY BLOSSOM INGREDIENT
L’OCCITANE celebrates the beauty of the Cherry Blossom and its delicate flowers. The Cherry Blossom Range is a feminine bouquet of powdery Cherry Blossom and sweet fruits. The Cherry Blossom range includes fruity, floral and velvety notes of fragrance across the whole range, from hand cream to shower gel.
Characterised by its soothing properties and rich levels of anti-oxidants, cherry blossom oil is one of the more underrated essential oils - providing the benefit of an alluring sweet and floral scent, and the properties which promote smooth and supple skin.
Derived from the popular cherry blossom flower which tends to signal the arrival of Spring through its soft pink flowers and delicate scent, cherry blossom season begins when the temperature starts to warm, and will typically last for a couple of weeks before the petals start to drop. During the blossom season, cherry blossom essential oil is made using the natural petals and heads of the flowers; mixing the potent floral heads with a high quality oil which draws in and combines the active extracts from the flower with the base oil. This is then filtered to create the soothing and sensitive extract which is heralded for its effective use in the hair and on the surface of the skin.
A poetic, delicate beauty
The moment of bloom for a cherry blossom is so brief if you’re not present in the moment you could miss it. Each year, the pure white flowers mark the start of spring, a clean slate for a new harvest.
