5 Reasons Everyone Should Be Herbal Body Oiling

Herbal body oils have changed my life and health in more ways than I can count. These solar infused oils take on the medicinal properties of the plant to create a beautiful, body loving medicine. Whole plant herbal infused oils are natural, gentle, effective AND versatile. Because of their versatility, it is difficult to describe all the ways they can support us, however, below are the five biggest reasons everyone should be body oiling with whole plant herbal oils!

  1. Promotes healthy and glowing skin: Herbal body oils help to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and glowing. They can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving overall skin health and vitality.

  2. Reduces stress and anxiety: The act of massaging herbal body oils into the skin can be a meditative practice that helps to reduce stress and anxiety. The oils can also contain herbs that have calming and soothing properties, helping to promote relaxation and improve mental health.

  3. Supports overall well-being: Many herbal body oils contain medicinal herbs that are beneficial for overall health and well-being. They can help to boost the immune system, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote a healthy balance of hormones.

  4. Offers a natural alternative to synthetic products: Herbal body oils are made with natural, plant-based ingredients, making them a safer and more sustainable alternative to synthetic products. They are also often free of harsh chemicals, preservatives, and artificial fragrances, making them gentle and safe for all skin types.

  5. Provides a mindful self-care practice: Incorporating herbal body oiling into a daily self-care routine can be a way to slow down, tune in, and connect with your body. The act of massaging the oils into the skin can be a meditative practice that helps to promote mindfulness, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.

Hi there! I bought the Evergreen oil at the Dec craft show and really like it for easing arthritis in my joints. However, I was puzzled by the ingredient called potentizing grape alcohol? I don't know what that is. I'm thinking wine? Can you enlighten?

Hi! First, I am so happy to hear about how the evergreen oil is supporting you. Thank you for sharing! <3 Second, great question. I use a miniscule amount of high proof organic grape alcohol (made from organic wines and grape varietals) in my creation process for two reasons. One, it helps with the extraction of the medicinal properties of the plant, which creates a potent product. The second reason being it adds a layer of preservation to the oil, allowing it to last longer without it going rancid. I hope this answers your question!
