Honestly, I love them and everything they are becoming. Their essential oils are very reasonably priced and their donations support groups that help those affected by human trafficking.
So when I was contacted at the start of the year about doing a review...I got excited.
I did tell him I'd reviewed for them before and was assured this fact did not disqualify me. I requested a random assortment of oils (because I can never choose from a list).
They arrived promptly with only one bottle having a slight leak. (This is something they're aware of and have probably fixed by now)
I immediately began researching what awesome concoctions I could come up with....
Grapefruit Peppermint Coffee Body Scrub
I kind of made this on the fly so I'm guessing at the amounts (I didn't write them down! I'm sorry!)
- 1/2 cup coffee grounds (I saved mine from my reusable coffee thing)
- 1/2 cup Epsom Salt
- 10 drops Grapefruit EO
- 5 drops Peppermint EO
- Enough grapeseed oil to make it scrub consistency
Supposedly, coffee grounds and grapefruit in a scrub is good for cellulite. I just know it smells neat and exfoliates wonderfully!
Sore Muscle Body Butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 Tablespoon Shea Butter (can be left out if you don't have it...it's dry here)
- 1 tsp Argan Oil (just because I had it on hand)
- About 1 Tablespoon of Epsom Salt LOTION (usually with the ace bandages)
- 10 drops Frankincense
- 10 drops Lavender
- 8 drops Copaiba
- 3 drops Lemongrass
Whip (I used a stand mixer) until it fluffs up! I store mine in a glass jar with a lid.
I applied this before bed after day 2 or 3 of the week I actually worked out. When I woke up, I noticed the areas I'd applied it were, in fact, less sore than the areas I'd missed. Now I use it as a full body lotion just to feel good.
I cannot stress enough how much I like this company!
