Reader Review: ISUN Body Oil - Warmth and Stimulation
I was one of the lucky receivers of three mini ISUN body oils. I got the "Warmth and Simulation" set, which included the oils Carnelian, Amber, and Garnet. I downloaded the brochure from ISUN to read up on the oils and how to use them.
Per the ISUN brochure, this is a description of each of the oils: Amber brings the light of higher energies into earth energy and supports a strong mind and will. The herb-infusion helps to cleanse bodily impurities that might impede the mind. Together, the herbs and essential oils help increase circulation in the body and brain and stimulate the mind. Chakra connection: 3rd Solar Plexus
Carnelian: The orange energy of carnelian supports enthusiastic vitality, confidence, warmth and creative inspiration. It is also a color that helps integrate higher wisdom into life on Earth. The herb-infusion and essential oils synergize to bring warmth and enthusiasm into the creative activities of life. Chakra connection: 2nd Sacral Chakra
Garnet: The strong, grounded vital energy of red gives strength to the body and helps ground the nervous system. The red herbs and roots and woody-spicey essential oils are fortifying for both the body and mind and help to build and restore a solid foundation for living in the earth energies.
Chakra connection: 1st Root Chakra
I tried each one in the bath, as well as using the oils as a moisturizer after showering. I found that applying the oils after a shower worked best for me, as the oil really sank right in to my skin and left my skin smooth and soft with just a hint of fragrance. My favorite scent was the Carnelian. It was the lightest scent of the bunch and had a lovely sweet smell. I did not care for either the Amber or the Garnet scent, as they were much more pungent to me than the Carnelian, and my dogs definitely avoided me when I had either of those two oils on!
All in all, I think they are very nice body oils, and they definitely will give you smooth, soft skin. Unfortunately, I had no "greater sense of well being", or any mind/body connection from using the oils. I would like to thank Truth In Aging for the opportunity to try the ISUN body oils.
