Jo Wood Organics
That's why she's created her very own range which launched
exclusively at Beyond Beauty at Harvey Nichols. Jo Wood Organics is not
only organic, it's also both glamorous and utterly luxurious. Jo has
worked with Europe's most passionate and knowledgeable organic beauty
experts to create formulations based on rare and precious active plant
extracts with fantastic healing properties. The result is a body-care
range to soothe and nourish your skin while restoring its natural
From bath oils to body lotions, the collection is
based around two fragrances of depth and sophistication: bright, fresh
Amka and sensual, woody Usiku, both delicately structured from the
world's finest essential oils. Life on the road with the Stones has
taken Jo to the world's most exotic corners, and these two fragrances
are inspired by Kenya, one of her favourite places. Amka is Swahili for
'awaken' and Usiku for 'night'.
'Africa arouses the senses. I love
the wild flowers and tropical seas, and the scent of the savannah at
dusk, these are the things that inspire me.'
The range comes in an eclectic collection of differently shaped bottles,
by the antique perfume bottles Jo has picked up at Parisian flea
markets. Brimming with Art Nouveau glamour, it's just the kind of thing
you'd imagine on the dressing table of a lady's boudoir. They perfectly
compliment the precious contents.
As Jo says, 'If we work with nature, rather than abusing it, we all reap the benefits'.
