How to properly oil the body?

Oiling can be used not only on hair, but also body oil. This treatment brings many benefits, and the skin repays with a healthy look and is also super moisturized.

body oiling

To start with, it's worth finding your favorite oil. I often use almond oil with a few drops of essential oil for oiling (depending on mood and needs). If I want to stimulate my body, I add a few drops of lemon oil. However, when I want to fully relax, I use lavender oil.
A few drops are in this case 4-5 drops on a tablespoon of oil 2-3. How much oil is used for oiling? Usually 5-6 spoons + about 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. At the moment I am doing it by eye.
When buying oil, it is worth paying attention to whether it is refined or not. Unrefined oils are definitely better because they do not lose vitamin E and other properties during juicing. You can easily find such information on the packaging.
The oiling procedure is very simple. Massage the oil and essential oil mixture into the skin, starting from the top of the feet and going up. The most important thing is massage, which is to stimulate circulation and cause better absorption of oil combined with essential oil.
It is worth doing such a massage right after waking up (of course if we have time for it) or before bedtime (it relaxes the body well, preparing it for sleep). We do the massage for about 15 minutes, taking your time now, focusing on each part of the body ... slowly dry and massage thoroughly.
After the massage, I always wipe the excess oil with a paper towel so as not to soil the clothes or bedding.
I noticed that since I do body oiling, my skin is not so dry, and circulation problems are much less bothersome.
Oiling is done once - twice a week (depending on how much time I have). And if we're already on the topic of oiling, I remind you hair oiling, which has a beneficial effect on damaged hair, as well as for daily care.

Alterra olive and lime oil not only for the body ...

After a long absence and another long, which is getting ready (due to writing a bachelor thesis, exams and general chaos that has ruled all of our lives), I would like to invite you to review alterra oil with olive and lime, which has been around for a month in my house and is doing very well.

My opinion:
I used oil not only for the body, as the manufacturer recommends, but also for hair, so I will tell you about the effects on the skin and hair.
As for the skin - it replaced all body lotions I had. They went away and are waiting for better (or worse) days. This oil provides my skin with 100% moisture. Even Ms. Allergologist was surprised when I told her I had a skin allergy (skin allergy is mainly manifested in very dry, itchy skin).
alterra olive

I love its smell - it's not too sweet, but quite intense. Even after several minutes I find myself still feeling it. The smell lasts for about an hour, then it is only noticeable when you smell the oiled place.

It absorbs very quickly, which in the case of oils always lasts a long time. Beautifully polishes the skin, making it look healthy and radiant.

I use oil everyday under anabelle minerals. I use a small amount of oil as a face serum, wait for it to be absorbed and then apply the powder. These two products go great together.
I also used the product on hair, the rich composition allows for quite good care. Quite, because my hair yearns for amla, who was the only one who did wonders with them. I will have to order it because I also miss its properties and smell ... ah I dreamed ...
alterra oil
But back to the product - it works ok. I won't say it's great, because having a comparison with amla it is only ok. However, I like to apply it once a week to the hair and I think that even if I order amla I will apply it every other week , instead of this oil.
I also used it as an eyelash serum and I have to tell you that it also worked wonderfully here. At first I was afraid that my eyes (smell) would burn me, but nothing like that happened. I apply it once a week interchangeably with alterra lipstick and you can already see the effects (eyelashes are longer, and above all thicker, which was my problem after revitalash treatment (the effects of which I will present to you after a long exam - work break).
The oil is efficient, with my daily use, or every other day I have it a month (and as I said - I use it not only for hair, but also for the body). However, you have to take into account that my hair is quite short.
As far as I know, the previous version of the oil did not have a pump. However, when he returned to us - he was equipped with it. A huge plus for this, although my pump stutters from time to time.
The downside is the price, because the oil is not super cheap at all. However, on the other hand, it is very efficient, this minus also balances.
For my part, I recommend this product because we get 4w1 - a product for hair oiling, powder serum, eyelash serum, as well as the best body lotion in the world.
