Body Oil- "Roots" Deeply grounding

Regular price $35.00

Deeply relaxing and grounding.  Helps relax the body, mind and specifically the muscles.

Concentrated moisture: Moisturizing with oils has so many benefits. Lotions are primarily water, they glide on easily but there is little moisturizing power to them. They require a preservative. Using only oils is far more nourishing and natural for the skin, and if applied while skin is damp the oils will absorb quickly and evenly.

Directions: Apply to clean skin damp or dry.  Massage in and allow to absorb. Store at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

2oz | 60ml glass bottle with pump

Scent: earthy/warm
