Reader review: ISUN body oils
I was one of the lucky, devoted TIA followers to get a sample of ISUN Body Oils. The 3-pack I was selected to get was “Elevated Consciousness”. This sample included Crystal Oil, Rose Quartz Oil and Amethyst Body Oil. After doing a little research on what exactly I was supposed to do (or not do) with these oils I found the following suggestions:
“The oils may be used as an overall body moisturizer, for massage, in a bath, combined with an ISUN exfoliant and used as an energizing body scrub, or applied only to certain areas of the body, such as the feet, or to energy points. Each gemstone oil corresponds with an energy center (chakra) of the body and can be used to help balance chakras.”
My favorite of the group was the Amethyst Body Oil (see at the bottom of this post for ingredients and each oil’s focus). It has such a light scent; I would wear it as a perfume. I kept this oil at work and when things got a little crazy and I was in the weeds (anyone else ever wait tables?!) I would put this oil on my wrists and neck and breathe deeply a few times. Did I feel relaxed, yes, was it because of the power of the Amethyst gemstone? I don't know.
The other oils I kept at home and did a few tests. Applying to dry skin (didn’t sink in that well); apply after a shower (made my skin smooth and supple). Then there was the leg test, I put just oil on one leg (Crystal) and mixed oil and body lotion and applied to the other leg. Then I went to bed and checked each leg in the a.m. Both were moisturized; and I would say almost equally. Putting the oil on solo moisturized my leg and kept it looking smooth with a bit of sheen (not glitter, just a nice looking leg (if I do say so myself) the following morning.
Overall, the oils were thick. Think olive oil vs. corn oil. I liked this consistency because it was easy to control when pouring out of the vial. I preferred the scent of the Amethyst and Crystal over the Rose. All three oils contained Rosehip, which TIA is a fan of, as well as Vitamin E. At the price point of $12 (30ml) or $39 (120ml) I think this is a safe bet if you enjoy body oils, but for some mind body connection I may look elsewhere.
