Sensual Gifts for Lovers and Perfect Pampering Packages for Valentine’s Day

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a serene and tranquil spa after a deep tissue massage. Your body is relaxed, your mind is clear and your skin feels supple and utterly amazing. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I have some seriously sensual and sexy gift ideas for yourself or your Valentine. Recreate that spa feeling at home with seductive candles, massage oils or creams, and perfectly paired gift packages that are beautifully wrapped and ready to be enjoyed from Heliotrope San Francisco.

Last Friday, I went to visit Jonathan Plotzker and Don Snider, the owners of Heliotrope in Noe Valley, to experience that tranquil feeling first hand. I spent hours feeling, touching, massaging and learning about the ingredients in their products and essential oils. They use all natural, locally sourced ingredients in their line and create customized scents with their essential oils. ***Fun Fact: Their candles are made from soy and shea butter making them non-toxic and safe. They also burn at a low heat so you can use them as massage oil as well!

Here are some of my favorites…

Set The Mood…

Create ambiance with any of their soy and shea butter candles. My pick: Black Fig Cardamom Candle: Travel size:$4 $ Large: $19

All over your body… $25

2 oz bottles of their signature Organic Aloe, Olive & Avocado Lotion, Aloe Sulfate-Free Foaming Shower Gel, refreshing Aloe & Walnut Exfoliating Wash; Aloe & Protein Moisturizing Shampoo and Aloe & Shea Butter Conditioner

Rub your body down…

Leave a Massage Sampler $25 Massage Cream, Massage oil, three candles and body soap

Large Leave a Massage Box $69 Massage Cream, Massage oil, candles, bath bombs and body soap

Relax your muscles…relax your mind…

Create a sensual and relaxing bath with their travel size candles spaced on the bathtub and sink. Add their Aloe, eucalyptus and mint bath soak to the water. Gently massage your skin with a bamboo and charcoal fiber sponge.

The Difference

Unlike many mainstream products, Heliotrope uses shea butter which is a close ingredient to our own natural oil. Most products on the market, especially lotions, use mineral oils which do not allow the dermis to absorb moisture. Why use a lotion if it doesn’t actually moisturize your skin? I invite you to experience the difference and you will never use a mainstream product again.

True Story

I have been using their products for two weeks and my skin and body are reaping the benefits. Within 48 hours, I could see a significant difference in my skin. My face was soft and well moisturized, the skin around my eyes was supple and taut. My body felt as if I had been to the spa after a long, luxurious wrap. It is that spa feeling without the spa price tag. It’s a must have…see below.
