{review} province apothcary’s lover’s oil

Province Apothecary Rose and Cedar Wood Massage Oil_Lover's Oil

Julie Clark from Province Apothecary has once again blended up another life-changing oil.

Last weekend, over brunch, my girlfriends and I were gushing about how our skin has never felt or looked better since Julie came into our lives (honestly, her products are that good) so when I received Lover’s Oil, her latest creation (that was just released here) to test out well, excitement busted outta me.


Lover’s Oil is an all natural massage oil that contains some pretty gorgeous ingredients:

Fractionated Coconut Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil*, Evening Primrose Oil* and GMO-free Vitamin E, Rosemary Leaf Extract*, Bergamot FCF Oil, Clary Sage Oil*, Ylang Ylang oil*, Rose Absolute Oil, Cedar Wood Oil*, Vetiver Oil*, Jasmine Oil, Cardamon Oil*.  *Certified Organic ingredients 

See what I mean?

I could immediately pick up on the notes of rose, clary sage and vetiver and let me tell you it made me find a moment of zen.

Cedar wood oil is grounding and calming, which helps dispel negative energy. Rose, one of the oldest known aphrodisiacs, helps build confidence and a sense of peace in yourself. Ylang-ylang reduces stress, anxiety and nervousness and leaves you feeling great about yourself. Jasmine reawakens passion, uplifts your mood and builds your confidence.

I’ve been using this oil post-shower to treat my skin to some love, and loved it has felt.

Aromatherapy and mind feng-shui’ing properties aside,


this massage/body oil has given me some seriously soft skin. I noticed it especially on my legs (which tends to dry out faster from shaving) that instead of sandpaper cruelly cracking in front of my eyes they felt and looked silky.

No judging, but I found myself touching my legs. A lot.

In a couple or fierce independent gal you gotta try this. At $20 a pop (60ml) it’s literally starting my 2015 Worth the Purchase list and once I run out I’ll be buying another. Or an entire case.

Happy Friday blushers! Thanks for joining me this week and I hope you have an awesome weekend! xo
