[unpaid/sample] If you’re a reluctant riser as a nip in the air develops, this oil is for you! It’s an absolute burst of citrus and juniper, mellowed with rose geranium and lavender that leaves skin feeling softened and nourished. I rarely apply any oils in the morning (can’t be bothered!) but Ila Body Oil for Vital Energy is probably worth breaking the routine for if you feel sluggish.
In reality, I’m far more likely to use the rollerball on my wrists to bring back focus and give my brain a jolt if its tired. I found that the aroma lasts a long time so if you want to wear fragrance you might find a bit of a clash but to be honest you will smell so delicious anyway you probably won’t want to add more.
The oil itself is argan with rosehip seed and almond and despite feeling very rich, doesn’t feel ‘oily’ on the body once you’ve massaged it. I found applying it to my feet and then putting socks on was a lovely way to use it with the benefit of much nicer feet by morning. I’ve been having reflexology over the past few weeks to try and get back to my normal energy levels (still a little bit lower than I’d like) and I’m wondering if I should ask the practitioner to use it next time. It’s pricy at £48 but so powerful I think you could mix it with a general carrier and still feel benefits. Or, save it for times when you really need it – like waking up in the dark in December :-). It’s HERE.

These both sound lovely but I baulk at the “wild crafted” juniper on the body oil. What does that mean? It was grown and the berries lovingly moulded in the wild (wherever that might be) then harvested by a type resembling Tom Hanks in Castaway mode? Crafted and curated, along with clean, are three words which really set my teeth on edge and are overused and misused in modern beauty (and other domains) or is it just me? And I’m sorry I’m a bit cranky today! Thanks mado-pause :-/
You’re right – it’s similar to when there is an ‘organic’ oil or ingredient but if it’s mixed with non organic what’s the point. In this case though I think it’s more of a pointer to careful ingredient sourcing – needs to be put in a better context.
This sounds lovely! I’ve just had a look at them too and this one is also vegan and the brand seems to be cruelty free too 😀
