10 Eco-Friendly Botanical Body Oils + Serums

by | Jul 30, 2018 | Green Beauty

Body oils + serums might be associated with luxury, but you don’t have to live a luxurious life to enjoy them. They are best applied after a shower or bath when your skin is still damp. Massage into the skin, hair, nail area and allow the oil or serum to soak in completely. They can be used alongside dry brushing to stimulate the lymphatic system. You can even pour a little in your bath to let the moisturizing process begin as you soak!

Here are some of the benefits of using one:

  • Nourishing for the skin
  • Leaves a beautiful glow lotion alone cannot achieve
  • Assist in repairing skin
  • Not just for skin, but can also benefit hair and nails
  • Alternative to conventional perfume
  • Prevents razor burn by applying pre-shave
  • Allows you to enjoy the smells and effects of botanicals
