Gift of the Nile Night Oil

Sold Out

1.8 oz / 51 ml

Vitality was a cosmic concern in ancient Egypt. Herodotus called Egypt a "Gift of the Nile" for without its yearly inundation the fertile plain would turn from lush green to barren desert. Beginning in the Old Kingdom, the world's first medical texts addressed the maintenance of youth. Fenugreek was prescribed by the Edwin Smith Papyrus to render the skin “beautiful without any blemishes” and, in one spell, is the singular ingredient to the fountain of youth. The Ramesseum medical papyri described a mixture of hemp and celery used in the treatment of swelling and dark circles. During the New Kingdom, anti-aging prescriptions called for a compound of moringa oil with frankincense and sedge. Black seed oil was also popularly applied, and was among the treasures presented by King Tutankhamun's tomb. As in antiquity, these Nilotic plants continue to be cultivated for their medicinal qualities and are revitalized in this formulation.
