Yay for the Bay! This is the last in this series featuring products from and around my stomping grounds — the San Francisco Bay Area.
“Be relaxed,” it says.
Jeez, my body oil is sooooo bossy… 😂
I laugh every time I bust out this bottle of EO Essential Oils Body Oil in French Lavender , which is often, because I feel like it’s giving me tough love and telling me to chill-the-eff out, Karen.
Funny thing is, after I shower and slather my legs and limbs from tip to toes with this $15 lavender-scented body oil, I actually do feel very relaxed… After using it, I’ve fallen asleep on the couch at 8 (OK, 7:30!) more than a few times. 😴
For the record, it’s quite hydrating, but it isn’t greasy, and the lavender scent isn’t obnoxiously powerful.
EO Essential Oils and Everyone for Every Body, their sister brand, are based here in my neck of the woods in the North Bay Area, Marin County. Both of them carry every kind of body care product you can imagine — hand soap, hand sanitizer, lotion, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, body oils, deodorant, face wash, the works — and their products are cruelty-free, made without synthetic fragrances, and best of all, affordable. A huge 34-oz. bottle of their Everyone 3-in-1 Body Lotion is $11! I’m a big fan of the Apricot + Vanilla and the Citrus Mint scents, which are spring and summer staples for me.
And as an avid hand washer (some might even call me obsessive about it, but whatevs!), I’m also a fan of their liquid Hand Soaps. Lots of bubbles, but the soap is easy to rinse away, and it cleans without stripping my skin. My fave “flavor” is the $8.99 EO French Lavender, which by the way also tells me to “be relaxed” whenever I see it, ha ha! If you like the liquid hand soaps from Mrs. Meyers, I bet you’ll like these, too.
Oh! — and they also do products for babies, toddlers and bigger kids! Connor Claire has a bottle of the 3-in-1 Soap Orange Squeeze, which is an $8 shampoo, body wash and bubble bath combo, in the tub, but El Hub and I shamelessly pilfer from it on occasion.
You can find both EO Essential Oils and Everyone products at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Target, Kroger, Walmart, Albertsons and Safeway, among other places, and there’s a store locator on the website. They’re also available online.
