It’s hard not to love a Brand with heart and that’s exactly what Bodhi and Birch is! Just speaking with its founder Elijah Choo is an uplifting experience, much like the effect of the products that he creates. This brand is about wellbeing and every product that they put out is designed to boost it!
This is what the Founder Elijah Choo has to say about his range:
“Bodhi and Birch is creating products and lifestyle that uses ingredients from East and West but it’s not just skincare; it is well-being, it is wellness, it is health, it is skin health. I do not claim that using Bodhi and Birch products will make you younger because that’s practically impossible but they will definitely improve your health and in the process of using them it will make you happier, it will help you to destress, it will boost your senses and it will rejuvenate you in all senses of the word.”
The Superfood Series
The Superfood skincare is Bodhi and Birch’s latest offering is all about eco-luxe skincare and we love it! All of these products are multi-use and harness the power of superfoods to create a fabulous collection of products.
Like all of their products, fragrance lies at the heart of everything which makes this brand distinct… it’s all about that fragrance journey. What makes this range even more unique within the Bodhi and Birch range is they’ve kept them free from essential oils.

Super25 Botanical Serum
This is an oil-based serum that manages to deliver its skin boosting nourishment without the use of essential oils: instead Elijah Choo has innovated by harnessing the power of superfood oils like blueberry, cranberry, prickly pear and hemp seed without compromising on the quality and luxuriousness that can be lost when essential oils are left out. This serum delivers gentle, soothing but effective moisture and nourishment to the skin. It’s gently scented blend of nourishing oils, essential fatty acids and antioxidants all work to nourish, hydrate, brighten and protect the skin from the effects of ageing.

Submerge yourself in the gorgeous scents of Bodhi and Birch… these are two gorgeous body products that are real treats for the skin.
Pep Noir Bath and Shower Therapy
This shower gel has quite a masculine scent, you can really smell the pepper in this, which is invigorating.
Contains a fusion of fusion of Black Pepper, White Thyme, Bergamot and Frankincense. It also contains the AHA Lactic Acid to gently exfoliate the skin (you can find out more about Lactic Acid here) to leave your skin soft, deeply hydrated and smelling amazing.
Ginger Brew Massage and Body Oil
Our lovely intern Lorna has been trying out this oil and these were her thoughts: “It’s a lovely oil, not as moisturising as some other massage oils but then again not everyone likes really oily oils! It does sink in very quickly and the fragrance is very calming and even though I’ve got sensitive skin, I’ve had no reactions to it. Overall I think it’s lovely but, perhaps, not for everyone.”
This contains a blend of Plai, Galangal, Turmeric and Ginger oils. This is quite a thick oil and I prefer using it as a body oil or even as a pure-fume as a lot of people like massage oils to have a little more slip. This would be a great product to use when you’re feeling under the weather and need a little energising and comforting.
