Yogandha – Balance Roll-On Body Oil

If you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend blog you may have noticed that I’ve been AWOL for a few days – that’s because I’ve been busy with other things… Two weeks ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter, so blogging has had to take a back seat for a few days whilst I take care of her and we try to get into a routine. I was also struck down by a kidney infection which was the last thing I needed, but luckily I’m feeling much better now and we’re starting to get into some kind of a routine.
A few days before I gave birth I was sent this Roll-On Body Oil* from Yogandha and it couldn’t have come at a better time! Available in three scents I chose the Balance variety to help balance and normalise my hormones after having a baby – the other two fragrances are stress relieving Ground and uplifting Salute.
All of Yogandha’s wellness oils are 100% natural, vegan and cruelty free, even the patterned cardboard box is recycled – this is an aromatherapy brand with a great natural philosophy.
Balance Roll-On Body Oil contains a blend of 7 different oils, the two main ones are Jasmine which helps balance the body and the hormones and Cypress which helps to relax and comfort. All of the oils used within the product are also aphrodisiacs… although I’m really not interested in this aspect of the oil at this point in time!
The oil should be applied to the pulse points – inside of wrists, elbows, knees, temples – when you feel like you need a little lift, or you could also wear it as a perfume. It has a really nice sweet floral fragrance when you first apply it (this is the Jasmine coming through) which quickly fades to a subtle more herby aroma (the Cypress and other oils including Coriander). The scent only lasts for a couple of hours before you need to apply it again, but I quite like this as it means it’s not overpowering like some fragrances can be.
So, does the Balance Roll-On Body Oil work to help balance the mind and the hormones? I have to admit that I can’t say for sure… I’ve been using it for about two weeks now, and obviously due to the birth and the kidney infection I haven’t been feeling quite myself and my hormones and emotions have been on a bit of a rollercoaster ride. However what I can say is that every time I’ve applied it to the inside of my wrists and breathed in the sweet fragrance it does feel like a little treat and makes me feel special… something which can be rare in the first few weeks of motherhood. So yes, I’d like to say that the Balance oil does work, it’s certainly made me feel a bit more human again!
I’d definitely recommend the Yogandha brand, they also do regular moisturising natural Body Oils and the Detox one is next on my list of products I’d like to try.
Balance Roll-On Body Oil is priced at 19.95 euros (around £15), available from Yogandha and Harvey Nichols stores. Plus 5% of all purchases are donated to Women For Women International.
