A few months back, I wrote about a new-to-me natural body care brand from the Netherlands, Treets Traditions.
Check out my review of Healing In Harmony Body Cream and their fab Nourishing Spirits Foaming Shower Gel here. I was delighted to get to try another of their products: Relaxing Chakra’s Body Oil, Rose and Rice Bran Oil.
I have mixed relationships with body oil because some of them feel great when I apply them but over a few hours, some completely disappear into my dry skin, and within a few hours, my skin especially on my limbs can look and feel dry. So when Treets Traditions Relaxing Chakra’s Body Oil arrived, I was somewhat skeptical but game to give it a try.
I’m pleased to report that Relaxing Chakra’s Rose & Rice Bran Body Oil with vitamin E definitely does a good job keeping my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I was surprised that my skin even felt and looked good the next morning. Yay!
Relaxing Chakra’s Body Oil also hydrates without feeling greasy. The oil absorbs quickly, and I don’t have to wait forever to get dressed. Also, an NSDB reader recently left a comment about another brand of body oil saying that she was using it up too fast because she had to use so much. I didn’t have to use a whole lot IMO. I apply it while my skin is still damp, and a small amount goes a long way.
The variety I received, Rose & Rice Bran Body Oil, has a faint rose scent. Actually, it reminds me of the soft Japanese Cherry Blossom scent from RITUALS Sakura Foaming Shower Gel most likely because of the rice brand. Lovely while applying it, and then it’s gone so it doesn’t interfere with any fragrance I decide to wear.
Relaxing Chakra’s Body Oil comes in a clear pink plastic squeeze bottle. Very pretty! My only minor complaint is the push down/flip up cap. When I try to squeeze some oil out, more comes out than I actually need. I wish it had a pump top. Certainly not a major problem, but I want to make it last as long as possible. Maybe it’s just the bottle I got.
Treets Traditions Relaxing Chakra’s Body Oil, Rose & Rice Bran Body Oil, 150 ml/5.07 fl. oz., is priced at $15. I recommend it! It comes in other scents, but I love this one. In fact, I plan to try the Shower Foam that’s part of this line next.
