The reason I created a line of body oils
My customers loved how silky smooth their skin felt after using my body scrubs and kept asking if I could also create custom oil blends that would give that same feeling.  So, I created a line of body oils using the same formula. Now, when you don’t have time to use my body scrubs, you can use my body oil to moisturize and soften your skin in just a few minutes.

I put together some useful tips and FAQs that will help you get the most from my body oils. Using a body oil is pretty straightforward but take a quick read and you just may find some useful information

About my body oils

  • Pure ingredients - I only use all-natural and organic ingredients – nothing artificial. Your skin is going to love these body oils.
  • Handcrafted with love - Our body oils are carefully hand blended in small batches to ensure quality from beginning to end. It’s a botanical super blend of organic carrier oils enriched with essential oils that does wonders for your skin. Nothing is mass produced.
  • Personal customer service - I want you to be 100% satisfied with my products and our service. If you are not happy for whatever reason, I will fix it for you – just please email me directly at janna@purescrubs.com

Benefits of pureSCRUBS Body Oils
Our body oils are designed to rejuvenate your skin. Every drop of our oil blend has properties to Moisturize, Nourish and Hydrate your skin keeping it incredibly soft, supple, radiant and healthy.

Blending in the finest, all natural & organic botanical ingredients
Our ingredient list is simple yet powerful. We have taken 5 of the most powerful skin loving oils and carefully blended them in what we like to call a “botanical super blend”. We further enhance the blend with vitamin e and grapeseed oil which does wonders for your skin.

Below are the core ingredients found in all our body oils.

 

NOTE: There is also an essential oil added in for the scent. For example, if you purchased Lavender Blend #02, then organic lavender essential oil is infused into the mixture.

These formulations are the result of countless testing of various blends. There is a purpose for each and every ingredient. This delicate blend of ingredients creates the same unique 4 IN 1 FORMULA that is found in my very popular body scrubs.

How to use my body oils for best results 

  • Do a patch test first - While I only use 100% natural and organic ingredients in our body oils, its always a good idea to apply a little on a small patch of skin to make sure you don’t have any reactions. I recommend you do this with any new product you introduce to your skin care regimen.
  • Apply after a shower or bath for best results - While you can apply the body oil at any time, it’s far more effective to apply this after a shower or bath while your skin is still warm and slightly damp because the oil is more easily absorbed. Pat your skin down but try and keep it a bit damp to maximize the moisture gained from your shower/bath.  Customer Tip: Many of my customers also apply the oil in the shower right after soap/body wash and rave about how well it works. Give it a try but please be careful not to slip as the oil can make the shower floor slippery.
  • Any greasy feeling will quickly disappear - When you first apply this onto your skin, you may notice a greasy feeling. This is perfectly normal due to the viscosity (thickness) of a body oil as it first comes into contact with your skin. As you start to massage and spread it on, you will notice that any greasy feeling quickly dissipates as body oil is absorbed.
  • A little goes a long way - Always keep this in mind. My body oils are lightweight and spread very nicely. You’ll notice that you don’t need much for your skin to enjoy a rich, deep moisturization.

More than just a body oil, consider these uses: 

  • Enhance your massage - Our body oils make the perfect complement to any massage. If you are looking for a massage oil with aromatherapy, then choose from one of our six scented body oils. The best part is that the scents are derived from organic essential oils so no need to worry about anything artificial going onto your skin. We also have an unscented body oil for those with sensitive noses. Our body oils are easily absorbed and generally don’t need to be washed off after a massage.
  • Nourish your nails & cuticles - Try adding a few drops onto your nails and cuticles. These oils work great after you buff and file your nails. The oil will give your nails a soft sheen. You can even use the body oil to help soften your cuticles.
  • Enrich your bath - Yes, this can double as bath oil. Try adding a few pump squirts to your bathwater to experience soothing and moisturizing effects while in the tub. Our Lavender and Sandalwood Body Oils especially create a relaxing bath experience! CAUTION: Please use caution when getting in and out of the tub as the body oil can make things slippery.
  • Using it on facial skin - The skin on the face is generally more delicate and sensitive. So, you want to be extra careful if you want to try this on your facial skin. While this is mainly a body oil, we have many, many customers who use it on the facial skin and love it. It’s all natural and organic, but keep in mind everyone’s skin is different. If you want to try it, please do a small patch of skin first and see how it goes. If your skin agrees with it, then just a few drops are needed. Gently massage it in with your fingers.
  • Using it on your hair - Our nourishing body oils are well-suited for hair as they are for skin. Many of our customers use our oils to help with dry, split ends. Simply rub a few drops onto the ends of your har to help hydrate those dry parched strands.
  • Pamper your feet - Our body oils are great to use on dry, cracked heels and feet. It most effective when the feet are clean (preferably after a shower/bath) and while the skin is clean, warm and damp. Massage the oil on the feet before bed. Some customers put on a fresh pair of socks and keep them on overnight.

pureSCRUBS Body Oil FAQs
  • How much should I use? - A little goes a long way. Our body oils are light and gracefully glide across your skin evenly and easily. Try applying a few squirts directly onto your skin and massaging it in thoroughly. Some customers love the feel and use even more which is perfectly fine. The best solution is just to experiment and see what amount works for you. If you feel you applied too much oil, then just massage it around a bit so it absorbs well.
  • How often can I use this? - Most customers apply this as needed. There is no harm to using it daily as it is all natural and great for your skin. If you use one of our body scrubs, then more than likely your skin will already feel super soft and you may not feel the need to use the body oil that day.
  • Can I use it on my face? - The skin on the face is generally more delicate and sensitive. So, you want to be extra careful if you want to use this on your facial skin. While this is mainly a body oil, we have many, many customers who use it on the facial skin and love it. It’s all natural and organic, but keep in mind everyone’s skin is different. We suggest testing it on a small patch of skin first. If your skin agrees with it, then just a few drops are needed. Use your fingers to gently massage onto your facial skin.
  • Will my skin feel greasy? - When you first apply this onto your skin, you may notice a slightly greasy feeling. This is perfectly normal due to the viscosity (thickness) of the body oil as it first comes into contact with your skin. As you start to massage the oil in, you will notice that any greasy feeling quickly dissipates as the oil is being absorbed.
  • Is there a best time to apply the oil? - For best absorption, the ideal time to apply my body oil is after a shower or bath when the skin is clean, warm, and slightly damp. HINT: Trust me, its works amazingly well after a warm shower/bath!
  • Can I apply it without taking a bath or shower? - Yes, you can apply this oil anytime of the day. It’s more effective and absorbs better after a shower/bath but there is no harm in applying it anytime of the day.
  • Are there other uses for the body oil? - Yes, while it’s called a “body oil”, you can use it on your fingernails, cuticles, feet, etc. Please read the section above “More than just a body oil, consider these uses” to learn more.
  • What are the different oil blend scents? - Good question! Currently, I offer the following scents: Lavender, Lemongrass, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Rose, and Citrus. The best part is that the scents are derived from organic essential oils so you can feel comfortable that everything going on your skin is natural and organic. I also have an Unscented Blend for those with sensitive noses.
  • What oils are in the blend?  - It’s a botanical super blend of sweet almond oil, fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil and argan oil. This is further enhanced with vitamin e and grapeseed oil. This skin loving blend is carefully prepared in small batches to ensure quality and consistency.
  • Can I use a moisturizer with a body oil?  - Yes, you can use your favorite moisturizer. However, since oils are heavier, your moisturizer may not break through to provide the hydration you seek to get from your moisturizer. So, if you want to use a moisturizer, use it before applying the body oil or skip the moisturizer all together.
  • Are the aromas natural?  - Yes, and this is the best part. I use all-natural ingredients, and the aromas are natural as well. The aromas are derived from the blend of organic essential oils. There is an art to making effective, non-greasy body oils. It takes the right balance of ingredients and essential oils to create the perfect texture that smells great and works wonders.
Safety precautions when using a body oil
I want your experience with my body oils to be a wonderful experience. At the same time, safety is especially important. Using a body oil sounds simple and it really is harmless. However, it’s good to be aware of the following safety issues to ensure you have the best experience possible.
  • When pregnant or nursing –We have many pregnant or nursing customers that use our body oil with no issues. When you are pregnant, everything is more sensitive, especially smells. So, keep in mind that even though our aromas are derived naturally and smell wonderful, they can be overpowering to someone who is pregnant. If you are not sure, then please consult with your doctor.
  • Slippery tubs/floors, exit safely –If you are applying this to your skin in the shower or even putting a few drops in your bath, remember, these body oils can make the floor/tub slippery. Please make sure to exit the shower/tub area carefully.
  • Skin irritations -While pureSCRUBS body oils are made with organic and natural ingredients and ideal for those with sensitive skin, there are some folks who may have certain allergies to random ingredients. If you notice any skin irritation, please stop using the body oil. It could be an ingredient in the oil blend or just one of those days. Wait a few days and try a small skin patch test to double check if it was the body oil or something else.

Here are the scents in our body oil collection
The scents all smell luxurious and are derived from organic essential oils. We assign blend numbers to help us keep track of our various custom blends. We eagerly listen to customer feedback and adjust our collection of body oils over time.



A note about our UNSCENTED Body Oil #09
The UNSCENTED blend is very popular with those who are very sensitive to smells but still want to experience all the same benefits. It’s also very popular with men who want smooth, healthy skin but no lingering aromas. Many people also purchase the UNSCENTED blend and then add their own essential oils or ingredients to make their own personalized oil blends.
