Bardo is the space in between, the void, the pause between two breaths. Take rest in the bardo — the moment between what was and what will be. Carve out this space to simply listen, to be with the body and breathe.
Bardo is the body blend, your invitation to tune in and intuitively use your own healing hands as a starting point into compassionate inquiry. Touch releases held tension and brings movement, flow and vibrancy to the skin, while breath-work shifts us into our natural, harmonious state of being.
Vetiver roots, creamy Sandalwood, aged dark Patchouli, Black Pepper, Vanilla Bourbon and the heart opening trio of rose, infused into a nutritive blend of pressed plant oils. A deeply grounding, anchoring blend of the earth.
The BARDO ritual
Pour Bardo into the palm of your hand. Pressing both palms together, bring to the face and hold cupped hands over the nose. Pause here for a few moments, becoming aware of the natural flow of breath.
From this place of awareness, inhale slowly and deeply through the nose. At the top of the inhale, allow the outgoing breath to flow out again through the nose, softly and effortlessly. Repeat this style of breath at least three times before applying.
Apply Bardo to the any area of the body that calls. Massage using intuitive touch, while remaining attentive by bringing your focus from the breath to the physical sensation of your own healing hands. Slow movements using the full expanse of your hand is deeply restorative, while faster, lighter movements using fingertips are more awakening. As you massage with Bardo, breathe slowly, breathe deeply.
Although suitable to any area of the body, Bardo has a natural affinity with the heart space and solar plexus energetic centres, and can be worn on the inner wrists as an alternative to perfume.

For me Bardo was the beginning of a piece in time carved out for me, without distractions or worries. I have always struggled with an overactive mind and ‘switching off’ and had never mastered meditation techniques not matter how hard I tried. I realized that Bardo was so much more than a daily moisturiser, it is a self massage and getting to know your own body. On top of that, the essential oils blended into my bespoke blend were exactly what I needed - I use it right before bed and it settles my mind and softens my breathing. Thank you Keely for your recommendation and helping my sleep routine during unsettling times!
I absolutely adore the body blends Keely so thoughtfully puts together for me. The latest one a twist on bardo is just so divine, the feminine energies of rose and vanilla with the grounding black pepper and sandalwood make it so nurturing and loving, with a bit of spice for a kick. I love tuning in with the delicious combination of plant powers Keely intuitively puts together for me after describing my needs. It's a special time as I am growing life and rubbing these blends on my belly is a beautiful ritual I honor daily.
I have been working with Keely and her body blends for the last few years, in particular ( co-creating, because I always feel like my needs are such a huge part of the process) her BESPOKE version of the body oils. Every few months, I check in with the energies at play and what my body needs to work with and Keely intuitively creates the most incredible body blend, ever changing, we flow with the plants and their wisdom. From love filled rose, to grounding vetiver and more recently the supportive pine and anchoring cedarwood. Always the highest quality, created with healing intention, helping me to create ceremony at home, daily.
