SkinnySkinny Lemongrass Organic Body Oil



What is it: Completely vegan and organic body oil ($30) that gives you a welcomed reprieve from the herby Lavenders and flowery Roses. Nice for stress-busting soaks, too.

Why it matters: The Jojoba oil is infused for what seems for weeks on end as a nice backdrop of Chamomile, Lavender, Rose and Calendula segue into the carrier with a soft scent, but never upstages the sweet Lemongrass.  In traditional medicine, Lemongrass is usually given in the form of a foot bath made from the fresh herb, from which the patient additionally benefits by inhaling the scent. Organic Hemp Seed, Rosehip, Sesame, Coconut, and Borage oils round out the rest of the list.

Why it impresses: Too often the clean, lemony smelling Lemongrass is overshadowed by other essences, rarely giving due to the near fruity nuances of the essential oil. It’s all here in its full, unbridled form – bright & subtly sweet. With a super light viscosity, the oil sinks in straight away and has a good scent that hovers atop skin for a bit longer than you’d expect it to. Fun fact:  it’s one of the ten best-selling essential oils in the world.

The Final Word: SkinnySkinny is a brand I like for breaking the mold of conventional oils blends and creating comfortably unique variations that really help you experience aromatherapy at a different level…and note.
