Sure they’re beautiful, they’ve got roses, organic flowers & shimmer inside but what exactly do our Body Oils do for your skin? Believe it or not they’re more than just a pretty face and pack a punch in the hydration and skin healing department, leaving other moisturizing alternatives in their wake.
What Makes Body Oil So Amazing?
In order for your skin to be adequately moisturized it is super important that the ingredients are actually able to get to where they need to go. Body oils are easily able to penetrate the skin's surface and infuse it with vitamins, fatty acids & antioxidants. They also act as a final occlusive layer which locks in moisture and acts as a defense against harsh environmental factors.
Many moisturizers have very low amounts of active ingredients & are supplemented with high water levels. This not only dilutes the actually beneficial ingredients but is also bad for the environment. Oil delivers far more concentrated nourishment to your skin & if you haven’t tried one you’ll definitely notice the difference. Not only are they better for your skin but as an entirely water free product, body oils are an amazing eco friendly choice. They are also long lasting, as a little goes a long way. Unlike more traditional body moisturizers you don’t need a huge amount of oil to hydrate your skin.
As well as supreme hydration, the inclusion of essential oils in our body oil blends adds extra nourishment straight from Mother Nature. Essential oils are directly extracted from plants, capturing their “essence” in highly concentrated magic morsels. Every essential oil has different properties that support skin health and can extend to mental and emotional benefits. Just to name a few, Blue Tansy turns blue when extracted from the Chamomile plant and is known to heal skin & ease inflammation. Grapefruit is known as the oil of honoring the body and has amazing antiseptic properties, while Sandalwood is extremely grounding and comforting with superstar skin nurturing properties.
Best Ways to Use?
Body Oil is a multi-use, versatile product that can be used to soften skin, add scent & moisture to your bath or even as a perfume alternative. Massage a few drops in circular motions all over your body. A little goes a long way, so start small and increase if needed. Alternatively, if you need a little pick me up or would like to use as a perfume alternative, dab a drop or two onto your wrists, temples, neck or behind your ears.
