The Story of Garden Isle

The Story of Garden Isle

Kaua’i is my absolute favorite scent. The damp earth, fresh rain, salty sea air, overripe fruits, blooming florals — there’s nothing in the world quite like it. I wanted to capture the essence of Kaua’i in a super luxe and healing body oil that allows you to truly cocoon yourself in the feeling of being on this gorgeous island. Bottling Kauai’s one-of-a-kind scent became my passion project, and after months of development, Garden Isle Body Oil was born. 

Its lustrous antioxidant blend of cold-pressed fruit and floral oils is like silk on the skin, and its distinctive earthy, verdant fragrance is pure enchantment. Because Garden Isle’s ingredients are so unique and fresh, each batch is a little bit different — capturing surprising new shades of Kaua’i every time. To this day, I’m the only person who makes our Garden Isle Body Oil because the process is so intricate. Sourcing its ingredients is so complex that I never imagined it would stay in the line this long, but I guess that’s why they call it a labor of love.

Massage Garden Isle into wet skin fresh out of the shower, breathe deeply, then melt into the moment. For an exfoliating body scrub (and scalp too!) blend with your favorite Hawaiian sea salt.
