Created for the summer months when whipped Babycakes: hair and body butter tends to liquefy in shipping, this hair & body OIL was a huge hit! This was meant to be a short-term solution to a problem with heat and shipping, but when I surveyed my customers, they asked that I keep the oil year-round!
The same Babycakes goodness... all the high-quality, quick-absorbing oils I always use, just without the whipped/solid texture that melts during shipping!
You can choose an 8oz bottle (*with push-cap dispenser*) or a 2oz travel size bottle (with same cap style), both available in the three classic scents (natural, lavender and mint blend), and possibly a limited edition scent as well!
**You can also choose to add a sprayer cap to your order! If you prefer to spray on this oil, this is a fine-mist inverted sprayer (which is a fancy way to say it will spray upside down). The option is listed here: fine mist sprayer pump**
natural/unscented - no added essential oils, but it does have a "natural" oil scent - some have described it as being earthy or herbal... like walking into a health food store.
mint blend - a blend of three mints: wintergreen, peppermint and spearmint! This scent is light, cooling and refreshing! Mint essential oils are known to be energizing, relaxing and happy-making! This is reminiscent of the intoxicating scent of a popular department store brand (something like Orig!n5).
lavender - This is a popular choice of parents of small children because of lavender essential oil's natural calming effect! Lavender is great for babies, relaxation, anxiety and to help calm before bedtime! It's a light scent, nothing super flowery or overpowering.
limited edition: see description on home page. Changes monthly!

I'm a curly girl (3a/3b, low porosity, high density, medium width) and have been using this product as part of my styling routine and I love it! I condition, apply this oil, cream, then gel. Love it. My hair just soaks it up, and it's not sticky or greasy like other serums and hair oils I've tried in the past. Added bonus: I moisturize my whole body with this amazing stuff.

Every member of our multi racial family is in love with this product! Protection from the sun and bugs, fantastic soft skin and hair and a wonderful addition to a nightly massage! We will definitely be keeping this in Stock!

We are really liking this body oil! I would like to suggest a couple things:
-the palm oil...is that sustainable? If not, it is of great importance to use some that is. For our rainforests and the creatures who live within them.
-scent ingredient disclosure...the oils used to produce the specific scents are not listed.
Otherwise, the oil is lovely and we are enjoying using it.

My children are outside all summer and I hated using chemical products every day on them. The citronella smell is wonderful and helping with mosquito bites!
**Pay attention to reapplication with little ones. My 4 year old is not as sun sensitive as my almost 2 year old. She needs almost double the application because her skin is still very fair.

It is not very often that I run across a product that my family just loves so much that we can't wait to use it every day! This is one of those products. My boys play outside all day, every day, and we live in Florida so the bugs are crazy, the sun is crazy, they are in the water a ton...you get the idea. I have been slathering them with this daily (I got the limited edition Bug Off scent) and it is amazing! I have been using for myself too and the bugs really do stay off! We were at the pool all day today and while my kids don't generally burn (at least not that is noticeable), they do get very dry and itchy skin. Today, their skin looked just as great after getting out of the water as it did before they got in. And I was so thankful to not be messing with yucky sunscreen.
This product goes on very smoothly and leaves just a light coating on the skin. I have not tried it on my little one's hair yet as the Bug Off scent smells great for being outside, but I'm not sure about putting it in his hair. I am going to be ordering a different scent this month to use on his hair because I can't wait to see how it works there too!

I just tried this oil today and really enjoyed the minty fresh smell and the initial feeling of like the necessary amount was absorbed for lubricant and there was still a protective coating to act as a barrier against the sun and wind. It went on smooth but was not heavy and greasy. I didn't have to wait for it to dry before I put on my clothes like I do with melted Shea butter. I'll be using it on Ethiopian hair as well. Good products are hard to find and I think this is a winner.
