What does body oil do?

A good quality body oil is made from the oils of plants, which mimic the oils that your skin naturally produces. Remember that not all body oils are created equally, so choose a high quality natural oil that uses clean ingredients from nature. A natural plant based body oil like our Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil is one of the healthiest ways to moisturize your skin as they don’t have harsh chemicals and additives like many of the moisturizers you’ll find at your local drugstores. 

 

Body oils help to nourish, deeply hydrate, and protect the skin. They absorb quickly so that your skin isn’t left greasy and they help your skin to stay glowy even when the seasons change. We invite you to use our nourish oil all over your body for the ultimate radiant skin this fall, to keep your skin hydrated and soft all year long. 

Body Oil vs. Body Lotion 

 

You may be used to using a body lotion as opposed to an oil, but body oils are growing in popularity around the world. The main reason many skincare enthusiasts prefer body oils is that they are often full of healthy botanicals instead of toxic ingredients or preservatives that negatively impact your health. Phenoxyethanol, Parebens, and Phthalates are just a few of the harmful ingredients found in many popular body lotions. 


Body oils also help to improve the skin through nourishing botanical ingredients. When you apply Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil to the skin you are delivering plenty of beneficial ingredients to help improve the overall feel and appearance of your skin. It is high in fatty acids and omegas to help strengthen your skin barrier. The oils will absorb into your skin, and won’t evaporate away like body lotions, which are often mostly water. The body oil helps to lock in moisture for long-lasting skin hydration. Here are 4 reasons why body oil should be your next go-to:

 

1. Body oils are effective at targeting dry skin.

If you’re looking for the optimum hydration this fall, body oils are the answer. They are effective at locking in moisture so that your skin doesn’t dry out as you go about your day adventuring outdoors in the fall sunshine. Lightweight oils like Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil absorb quickly into the skin so that you never feel greasy, but the moisture will last all day. 

2. Natural plant oils help to repair the skin.


In addition to helping moisturize your skin, body oils are more effective at helping to repair damaged skin. With their high quality natural ingredients they can target a variety of skincare concerns from scarring, to irritated skin. Natural oils are full of antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Anything that disrupts the skin-barrier can benefit from using body oil. Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil can help to fade scars and stretch marks, improve elasticity of the skin, and enhance collagen production with the power of plant-based omegas from avocado oil, babassu oil, and marula oil.

3. A body oil ritual will elevate your mood. 


Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil is formulated with high quality essential oils for a scent that is absolutely captivating. It is earthy and calming and can help to calm your mood and even allow you to release negative energy. Letting go of stress can allow for better sleep, and a better mood throughout your day. The blend of oils in Ceremonial Luxury body oil are cheerful and mood elevating with scents of oranges, clary sage, and bergamot which are formulated with love and good vibrations to help elevate your mood and release negativity. 

 

We invite you to allow yourself a moment of self care each and everyday when you apply your body oil. Create a small beauty ritual that is just for you in order to practice more self-love in your life. As you massage the oil into your skin, breathe deeply and allow the power of essential oils to calm your body, mind, and spirit.

4. Body oils are the perfect multi-tasking product to add to your skincare regimen.


One of the best things about using a high quality natural body oil like LaB.OTANICA’s Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil is that it can be used for so many different purposes. In addition to being used as a nourishing full body moisturizer to combat dry skin this fall, we invite you to try replacing multiple products in your cabinet with Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil. 

 

For the ultimate bath ritual, add several drops of Ceremonial to your warm bath water before climbing in for the ultimate relaxing soak. Your skin will be nourished with the fantastic plant oils like sweet almond oil, babassu oil, avocado oil, and moringa oil, along with vitamin E and essential oil of calendula flowers. The intoxicating scent will transport you to the ultimate spa-like experience where you can unwind for deep relaxation.

Ceremonial Luxury Body Oil can also be used as a cuticle oil for healthy and strong nails, and to help heal scars and stretch marks all over the body. You can use them instead of a shaving cream for a smooth shave. In addition to the many skincare benefits, you can also use Ceremonial as a massage oil and share the magic with a friend or partner so that their cares melt away. Massaging with our body oil can also help to improve circulation and reduce pain and inflammation in the body, as well as reducing anxiety and stress. 
 

This fall, we invite you to transform your self-care routine with the power of plant magic! With safe, natural botanical ingredients, you can ensure that your skin stays hydrated and supple all year long, even when changing seasons can add extra stress to your skin. Create a ritual of self-love around nourishing your skincare regimen so that it is something you look forward to each and every day.  Join our community of botanical beauty lovers by following us on Instagram, TikTok, and Youtube
