Body oils offer a luxurious and indulgent way to moisturize the skin. Not only do they make the skin feel soft to the touch, but they also prevent moisture loss to give you hydrated skin from the inside out.
After showering, our skin can often feel tight. Most people reach for either a body oil or body lotion to soothe and hydrate. These oils have gorgeous fragrances that can prolong the scent of your body wash and offer a pleasant scent that lasts through the day.
If you choose a body oil infused with essential oils, the fragrance can leave you feeling more balanced. Different scents offer varying mental benefits. Herby scents like basil can help you feel more grounded and alleviate stress.
Citrusy scents like grapefruit energize you and make your feel more awake, making them perfect for after your morning shower. Warm scents like nutmeg uplift your mood and go deep into the skin to relieve joint and muscular pain. Cool scents like peppermint are refreshing and give the skin a pleasant tingly sensation.
The scents and physical benefits of these essentials oils make them ideal for massages. However, regular essential oils need to be mixed with a carrier oil that makes them difficult to use. With a body oil, there’s no need to do any prior preparation. Simply pick it up and start your massage, whether you’re treating a loved one or doing it as part of a post-workout routine.

What’s the Difference Between Body Oil and Body Lotion
When it comes to moisturizing the skin, there are two main options — body oils and body lotions. You might be wondering how these differ from one another. Let’s find out.
Body oil is oil-based and sinks right into the skin. It replaces the oils that have been lost during cleansing and has a light texture. Lotions, on the other hand, contain water and different emulsions. They’re often used to treat skin concerns, from dryness to itchiness.
There’s no proof that one is better than the other. And you don’t need to choose between them. However, most people have a preference. You can switch between body lotions and body oils depending on the season or your skin needs. Body oils are great during humid weather since they’re not as thick or creamy. In extra-dry weather, you can even layer your body oil and body lotion for a super-soothing combo.
It’s all up to you and your personal preference. But if you’ve never tried a body oil before, we recommend adding one into your routine for those days when you want intensely moisturized skin without the added weight of a lotion.
The Benefits of Natural Body Oils
There are so many benefits to using a body wash infused with essential oils. These are some of our favorites.
As body oils contain just the oil and no extra water or emulsions, they feel light on the skin. Plus, a little goes a long way when applied with warm hands. Perfect for those warm days when you don’t want to feel sticky.

Skin Feels Sooo Moisturized
The essential oils within the body oils add an extra layer of hydration. Essential oils come from plants, so they don’t have the harsh chemicals found in regular fragrances. These work together with the oils to provide a gorgeous scent and leave skin feeling more soft and nourished.
Lock in Moisture
By simply applying your body oil to damp skin after your bath or shower, you’ll trap moisture in.
All-Natural Body Oils
Essential oils contain no chemicals and their natural properties have more benefits than you might imagine. Some are anti-inflammatory and some have anti-oxidant properties. When applied topically like this, it can help boost your skin health and even calm down any flare-ups on the surface of your skin.
What is Body Oil
Body oils are a type of moisturizer made from oil alone. They don’t contain water or emulsifiers like body lotions, so offer purer and deeper hydration.
How Do I Use Body Oils?
Use as a massage oil or apply to damp skin after showering to lock in moisture.
What Is Body Oil Used For
Body oil can be used to nourish skin that’s been stripped of its natural oils. It can also double up as a massage oil to soothe aches and pains, particularly after a workout. And, if you want to add a subtle sheen to your skin, this is a great go-to!
When Layering Body Oil and Body Lotion, Which Do I Put On First?
When layering any products, the general rule of thumb is to go from light to heavy. Oil is much denser and more moisturizing than lotions, which have a high percentage of water. So, it’s best to apply the lotion first and then lock it in with the body oil.
If you have extra dry skin, try adding some body oil to your body lotion, then layer more oil on top for an ultra-hydrating treat!
Will Body Oil Make My Skin Greasy?
Not at all! Body oils sink into the skin and leave you with a hydrated glow – no oil in sight!
Can I Use Body Oil on Oily Skin?
Yes, body oil is helpful for oily skin. As counterproductive as it may sound, your skin can overproduce sebum if it’s stripped of its natural oil. Body oil can help your skin regulate its natural oil balance.
Do Your Body Oils Contain Any Harmful Ingredients?
Our body oils are free from parabens, aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, artificial coloring, synthetic oils, and sodium lauryl sulfate. We’re committed to offering a safe and healthy shopping experience, so you’ll never find these ingredients in any of our products.
