Inner Senses Body Oils Review

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back! And if you are new here, welcome 💕💕💕

Inner Senses products review

This artisan brand was started by Lisa Basso, who has over two decades of professional experience and knowledge in the Aromatherapy industry and went on to develop the Inner Senses range which is hand-crafted and made in small batches to ensure freshness.

Inner Senses offers powerful (and great smelling) range of facial oils, body oils, carrier oils, essential oils & maternity and baby range formed of purely plant based ingredients. Inner Senses wants to take you on a journey of natural health & wellbeing through its lovingly blended ingredients to soothe, nourish & revitalise you. Lisa takes great care to select only the best ingredients there is (organic where possible) and this does reflect in the quality of her products. She is sourcing from only well established, reputable suppliers who are members of the Aromatherapy Trade Council, which goes some way towards guaranteeing the quality and purity of the product. And only purchases ingredients with full safety data sheets. Quality, purity, sustainability and fair trade are keys for her trade, and I really respect that.

I got a chance to try their Awakening Meditative Oil sent directly by Lisa, and what happened next was I repurchased it as soon as it ran out and went on to acquire more products from Love Lula. The oils are about 92% - 98% organic (depending on the product) and 100% natural and comes in 100ml dark glass bottles (that's for body oils).

Inner Senses body oils

Awakening Meditative Oil

Awakening blend is my favourite from all of the three I currently have, and I have a feeling I will always want to have it in my life. It is a grounding and cleansing blend which provides the perfect ritual enhancing accompaniment to Meditation, Reiki, and all subtle energy and mindfulness practices. Formulated with Frankincense, Rosewood & Rose Otto oils, renowned for their ability to enhance spiritual connection, clear the mind, encourage deep breathing and bring about deep relaxation.

Umm, I have to be really honest here - I am not someone who meditates (can't master this thing no matter how much I try), so I simply used this as a body oil. I have to tell you it smells DIVINE! I wish blogs and social media would have a scratch-and-sniff feature, because I would love to be able to translate that gorgeous smell that got me addicted at a first sniff! It is not strong, mind you, and you can feel it is all natural, scented with essential oils only, no nasties whatsoever. But it subtly lingers on your skin for a good couple of hours, and it sort of cocoons you into this blissful state of mind without you having to do anything. So I really can second it would be beneficial in aiding you into reaching meditative state. If you do use it for that, here's how you do it - place between 6-10 drops of oil into the palm of hands and gently rub together to release the aroma.  Cup hands in front of face and inhale deeply for a few seconds. Gently massage the oil into chest, arms, shoulders, neck etc as desired. For use on-the-go, simply dab a couple of drops onto wrists, temples and other pulse points when you need a little extra calm and clarity.

Needless to say I enjoyed every single drop of it, and I kind of wish I savored it more instead of going through it like there's no tomorrow. I was going through "I need to use up all the things" phase, and I kind of wish I didn't, or at the very least saved at least 10 or so ml to decant into the roller bottle. I am saying this with sadness, because it is all gone at the time I am writing this. I also admit this made me a convert in investing more in my body oils. Before this I was a total cheapskate and my reaction used to be like "this cost HOW MUCH for a 100ml? Thanks, but no thanks, I am good with my coconut oil". Now, I am happy to pay up more, because I know I would be getting an amazing product I would thoroughly enjoy! This was a nice treat while it lasted, and I want an endless supply of it on tap :) I also think Lisa should come out with a matching natural perfume, I would totally wear it. Addicted to the smell! In fact, writing this review made me miss this so much, I went onto Lisa's website looking to re-order it, so don't be surprised if you will see it on my social media soon. The oil is nice and lightweight, perfectly formulated if you ask me - sinks in quickly, leaving you with no greasiness on your skin (no clothes were ruined in the process of testing this) but it leaves your skin nice and moisturized for hours if not days! I also want to try more products from the range, one at a time, as if you know me, you know I want to keep a manageable stash and not to have too many open products at any given time.

Ingredients: (98% Organic & 100% Natural)
*Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Tocopherol (Non-GMO), Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense) oil, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) oil, *Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto) flower oil, ** Linalool, Limonene, D-limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Coumarin, Eugenol

 Vitality Body Oil

Vitality is my second favourite due to the uplifting scent of  of May Chang, Petitgrain and Neroli to revive and energise the body and mind. Perfect for the morning showers, or any time of the day, really.

*Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) kernel oil, Tocopherol (Non-GMO), Citrus Aurantium Amara (Petitgrain) leaf oil, Litsea Cubeba (May Chang) fruit oil, Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) flower oil  ** Linalool, Limonene, Citral, Geraniol, Citronellol * Of organic origin ** Naturally present in essential oils  

Sensual Body Oil

This body oil marries the King and Queen of flowers – Jasmine & Rose Otto – in combination with Sandalwood to create a luxurious treat for the skin and the senses. Jasmine and Rose Otto essential oils have been know as aphrodisiacs for centuries if not for thousands of years - and that is exactly the reason I chose this, I was so so curious what it smells like! Sadly this is my least favourite I should say - I don't like jasmine, and this smell overpowers the other two. Oh well, I am glad I tried it though, and I will have to remember not to choose products containing jasmine. I am sure one of my friends will lap it up. As for myself, I will either try Dream body oil or will go back to my beloved Awakening Meditative one, because if You can't tell by now, I frigging LOVE it! Pardon the language :)

Inner Senses offer products like face and body oils, balms, mama and baby range, pure essential oils, carrier oils and diffuser jewelry range. All available via Inner Senses website and smaller range from Love Lula. Price ranges from 7.50£ to around 35£, but most products are around 10-15£ mark.
