I love passionate people. People whose passion and enthusiasm can be heard in their voice when you speak to them on the phone. Ergo I love brands that have been created by such people… brands that come from a place of authenticity and dare I use the word again… passion.
Lisa Basso of Inner Senses Aromatherapy is one of those brands. Lisa who trained as an Aromatherapist in the 1990s launched this award-winning brand because she believes in the power of essential oils and wanted to share it with the world.
This organic range continues to grow with increasingly innovative products, this ‘Brand Focus’ will cover just some of the lush oil formulations… there are several more, so you really are spoilt for choice.
All of the oils are silky, lush and easily absorbed.
Inner Senses GREENHOUSE Tomato and Carrot Seed Renewing Oil Cleanser
This is a unique & beautiful golden colour and smells very green, earthy and refreshing. It smells like freshly mown grass, which we love for Spring! You just gently massage 4-6 pumps into the skin, leaving it to soak for a minute or two and enjoy the scent. Then you soak the face cloth in hand-hot water, wring out, and place on the face leaving for a few moments before gently wiping away the oil in downward/outward motions, taking care not to drag around the delicate eye area.
The oil feels very silky on the skin. You’re left feeling refreshed and with a nice glow.
Deep Blue C Facial Oil
RESET Beauty Potentiating Facial Elixir
This is a gorgeous face oil that delivers what it promises… optimised skin… and as such is the perfect choice for those concerned about skin ageing. This leaves your skin instantly plumped, soft and smooth. It contains a clever blend of antioxidants like Prickly Pear and Moringa Seed Oil, as well as other skin loving goodies like Rosehip seed oil, Baobab oil, chia seed oil, Squalene and Vitamin E.
7 Wonders Skin Panacea Face and Body Oil
It’s rare to find an oil that can be used for face and body that works equally well on both… this is one of those. This is a gorgeous oil that includes nourishing CQ10, Apricot Kernel Oil, Natural Vitamin E and more. This supremely nourishing oil is rich in Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, as well as Chia Seed oil, Black seed oil which contains vitamins and minerals that are valuable in skincare and facilitate skin recovery and repair. This oil is great for the face and really gives the body an intensely nourishing treat.
Awakening Meditative Body Oil
This oil contains some of my favourite essential oils …frankincense, Rose Otto and Rosewood all of which are known for their grounding qualities, making it perfect for when you want some quiet time and is great for ‘mindful moments’. The idea is that before applying it, you rub a few drops in your hands, close your eyes and inhale deeply…then proceed with your mindful moment.
Dream Body Oil
As you can probably guess from it’s name, this is a relaxing and soothing formulation that includes marjoram, clary sage and lavender in a base of apricot kernel and jojoba oil and as you can also imagine it smells gorgeous. This is a supremely relaxing blend of aromatherapy oils to help relax and restore you. It’ll also help to promote sleep and deep restfulness.
