Luxury Body Oils

Did you hear, 2024 is the year of body care? That makes us want to celebrate! After all your skin is your body's largest organ and it is so much more than just your pretty face. Body oils are among our favorite products and luxury body oils are the way to go. 

Oils have been used to moisturize and nourish the body since the age of antiquity and except for a brief stint in the 1980's their resurgence in popularity is quite recent.

For those of you old enough to remember, body oils of the 1980's were mostly mineral oil based. Mineral oil is essentially a chemical substance prepared from crude petroleum. And while that could be considered natural as it is carbon base, we can do better than make body care products obtained from the refinement of crude petroleum which after all is used to make gasoline. Today's body oils are mostly plant based, thank goodness, we've come a long way, baby!


What Makes Body Oil a Luxury? Surprise, It's Not the Price!

There are a lot of different body oils on the market and they are often, surprisingly very expensive! The good news is there are a lot of natural body oils to choose from. However, often times they have a few pennies worth of product in a pretty bottle and charge you an even prettier price. Why is this?  Honestly I don't know except to hazard a guess. Somehow we have convinced the consumer that body oils are a luxury and have attached an inappropriate price.

Trust me, you want a body oil. One that feels luxurious and is both nourishing and repairing. You deserve the total body spa experience. Here is what to look for and it doesn't have to be a luxury price or come in a bottle so tiny, you think it's a face serum.

 Body Oils for Glowing Skin - What to Look For

  • Ceramides - You skin contains natural fatty acids called ceramides that are essential for protecting the skin and preventing dryness. Natural oils can contain high amounts of ceramides like jojoba which contains as much as 96% ceramides. Oils like organic cold pressed grape seed and high oleic sunflower contain up to 73%.
  • Antioxidants & Vitamins - Antioxidants help minimize and prevent cellular damage by scavenging free radicals in the body. Look for oils that are rich in vitamins A,B,C & E to give a massive antioxidant boost. 
  • Omega & Essential Fatty Acids - Omega 3,6,9 are anti-inflammatory, and anti bacterial. They serve to calm, sooth and heal the skin. Excellent for eczema and atopic dermatitis issues. Watermelon, pineapple and coconut are excellent choices.
  • Enzymes stimulate detoxification and cleanse and remove excess water and trapped fat.  Oils such as green coffee and pineapple are excellent sources of detoxifying enzymes.
  • Light Weight & Non Comedogenic - We want oils that are quick to absorb, won't clog the pores and leave a satin soft finish.
  • Smell Amazing - Scent is the best way to top the incredible experience of skin nourishing oils on your body. Essential oils that are pure and therapeutic are the only way to go. Not only will they indulge your senses but further aid in your skin's health.

All of these benefits can be experienced and enjoyed without breaking the bank and in a size that will actually allow you to indulge your whole body on a daily basis.  

How And When To Apply Body Oils

Light weight body oils can be applied anytime, morning or night.  But if you are going soak in the tub with them, enjoy this when you have more time.

  • Put a few generous pumps into your bath water, relax, and enjoy.
  • Fantastic for shaving your legs.
  • Gently massage into clean, damp skin right after your bath, shower, or sauna.
