When it comes to body oils, I have to say that Inner Senses offer an experience like no other, helping to not only nourish the skin but also have a positive effect on the mind and overall well being.
Dream* was one of the first body oils I tried from Inner Senses’ Body Collection and it has to be the one I use most thanks to it’s calming and relaxing properties. Lavender, as we all know, is extremely effective when utilised in stressful situations and is commonly used to aid a healthy sleep pattern. The aptly named Dream certainly achieves this with its beautiful lavender-rich blend which also contains Clary Sage and Marjoram, two essential oils that have been proven to help with insomnia, anxiety and depression. As well as this, these essences can also alleviate the symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema and acne, as well as easing muscle tension and general aches and pains. Dream also contains a stunning base of Apricot Kernal Oil, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E to intensely nourish and moisturise without leaving behind any greasy residue on the skin.
What I love most about Dream is the beautiful balance of fragrant lavender and the herby, slightly peppery, scent from the Clary Sage and Marjoram. I love the fact that each essential oil is detectable, yet none of them overpower each other – something which Inner Senses successfully achieves within all of their products i’ve tried so far.
The oil itself is rich yet lightweight and absorbs beautifully into the skin. The dreamy aroma lingers for several hours, allowing its calming properties to bring a sense of tranquillity and relaxation when you need it most.
I find myself utilising Dream in various ways within my beauty regime, whether it be as a body and bath oil to moisturise the skin and bring relaxation to my pampering session or as a pulse point therapy oil that is a treat for the senses within my bedtime routine.
I have to say that every product I try from Inner Senses is exceptional in both quality and its effect on the mind and body, ultimately making it very difficult to chose a favourite from each collection. This being said, Dream is the one that I keep coming back to, as each experience is so positive and allows the stresses of daily life to melt away bringing peace and calm to even the most stressful occasion. My sleep pattern, which left a lot to be desired, has certainly improved since taking a few minutes before bed to inhale the beautiful scent and clear my mind to help me drift off into a more peaceful sleep.
