Ila Spa: A Brand Beyond Organic

Ila Spa is a brand I admire. With the maxim ‘beyond organic’, Ila far exceeds what many of us may expect from an organic brand. With a focus on delivering luxurious skincare to bring ‘purity, energy and balance into everyday life’ says Founder Denise Leicester, Ila Spa also works extremely hard to ensure that each formulation used ‘retains the earth’s purest natural vibrations: the energy of Ila.’

In Oxfordshire the barn where every product is blended overlooks the Cotswold hills; this is a truly stunning setting. The smell in the blending room is so comforting; both calming and uplifting all at once. In seeing the products made so carefully by hand, one can appreciate just how powerful the Ila philosophy is, and just how much every member of the Ila team is committed to that philosophy. The products, completely free from any nasty ingredients, are so lovingly made and contain the finest raw ingredients.

The great thing about Ila Spa is that now, with the addition of the new Essentials range, it really can be for everyday use, for the whole family. The Ila Body Wash for Toning Skin (£9.60) is perfect for all skin types with an uplifting scent designed to cleanse and pamper. Follow with the Ila Body Lotion for Nurturing Skin (£9.60) to nurture, regenerate and smooth. The shampoo and conditioner are great for a deep cleanse and nourishment, suitable for all hair types.

My star product from this new Essentials range is the Ila Bath Soak for Pure Relaxation (£9.60) This is an affordable product and has such a divine scent. Following Ila instructions, simply pour a small amount into a warm bath and immerse yourself in complete bliss.
