The Jewel of The Nile is a skincare collection from The Raw Spa inspired by Queens of Ancient Egypt. I couldn’t resist this goddess-worthy collection of decadent bath salts, creams, and truffles. These nourishing blends deeply moisturize and soften the skin (not to mention the entire house smells delicious). Each formula is unique to the Egyptian Queen it’s named after and all blends are hand crafted with natural ingredients. Mack (the head mixtress at The Raw Spa) uses her knowledge of natural skin care along with her love of Ancient Egypt to reinvent the skincare products used by the Queens and Pharoahs of long ago. Brilliant!
The bath truffles can be dropped right into your bath water. Soak for 20 minutes and you’ll be surprised at how soft and delicious your skin feels when you get out. Be sure to wipe down the tub afterwards as the oils leave the bath a little slippery. The skin parfaits can be used head to toe as a great moisturizer. The textures vary between blends but all of them melt as they warm on the skin. A little goes a long way.
The Cleopatra blend is crafted for sensitive skin. Made with creamy and soothing ingredients like raw honey, oat milk, sweet almond oil, and cocoa butter to soften and nourish the skin. Cleopatra is one of the most famous female rulers in history. Her love for luxury and beauty are shared in this glamorous scent-free skin parfait. Only the best for the best.
Hatshepsut is my personal favourite. Made with black tea, shea butter, frankincense, sesame oil and healing spices like turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, and clove. This spicy blend works wonders on sore muscles and has a beautifully earthy scent. Hatshepsut was regarded as one of the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer than any other woman of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty. This rich grounding aroma holds the strength of this Egyptian pharaoh.
Selene. This detoxifying and invigorating blend of mango butter, green tea, rice milk, and jasmine oil will quench the skin and uplift the spirit. The exotic scent is alluring and sweet, just like the Egyptian Princess it’s inspired by.
Nefertiti is all about pampering and seducing the skin with luscious ingredients like sweet rose oil, warm cinnamon, and softening cocoa butter. This women was true royalty in her time and continues to be one of the best known Queens of Ancient Egypt.
