Several years ago I purchased my own massage table and have the RMT come to my home. It is so consoling not to have to fight traffic coming and going and often am so relaxed by the end of my massage I fall asleep --such a pleasure!
During this time I have explored a number of massage oils and recently discovered a great product from the Yves Rocher line Botanical Beauty.
Rocher created Botanical Beauty 50 years ago in the attic of his family home in the heart of Bretagne, France. Insisting on quality, the company manages every step in the production cycle, from harvesting all their own organically grown plants, to manufacturing the best ingredients in their factories. To ensure the best price point Yves Rocher also handles all distribution of their products by mail-order, through selected stores, beauty institutes and on-line. And this Spa Girl is a big fan of on-line shopping.
The product is Oriental Massage Elixir, which nicely nourishes and restores the skin; and for someone with very dry skin (like me) it is ideal!
This "magic" elixir is made from organic Argan Oil, which seems to be appearing in a number of product lines these days, and includes aromatic organic rose essential oil. The fragrance is very subtle, and not overwhelming.
