Essential Oil Products
By Jill Bowling
The next set of pleasing pedicure products I tested were from
EO (Essential Oil) Products. I tried three products
from their updated foot care line.
I had been out gardening
the day I chose to pamper my tootsies this time and was
pleased with how gentle all the products were to my skin and
I started with the
EO Foot Scrub with Lavender and
Tea Tree. This light scrub rubbed vigorously into my tired
feet was invigorating.
The scrub is simply made with the
natural ingredients of organic brown rice, honey, kaolin clay,
purified water, vegetable glycerin and essential oils. The
scrub was effective, but not too harsh.
Next I tried EO FootSalts, scented with peppermint and
lavender. The packaging stated that "during our lifetime, our
feet will carry us the equivalent of 5 times around the
earth" - imagine that! We would all take better care of our feet
if we thought about that more often.
EO blends solar and epsom
salts with essential oils of peppermint and French lavender to
make this soothing soak. Approximately 3 tablespoons of salts
dissolved in warm water had me in “la la land”. The oils
spread throughout the water, replacing the drying salt and
leaving my feet feeling absolutely fabulous.
The soak was
actually calming to a mosquito bite and small cut I had from
gardening. I was expecting to feel stinging from the salts,
but instead my abrasion and bite felt better after the soak
and healed quickly. My feet glistened from the oils in the
soak even after drying with a towel.
After the soak, I slathered the
EO FootBalm ($10.00) onto my new
"sandal-ready" feet. Correctly labeled “balm”, this thick
moisturizer was a delightful end to my pedicure. This product
was scented with lavender and peppermint as well.
ingredients, including mango seed butter, green tea, chamomile
and Vitamins A & C, were just what the doctor ordered. The
balm was thick, but applied very easily to my already soft
feet and locked in the moisture.
I can’t wait to try EO’s newest FootRelief product,
Revitalizing Lotion, which completes the 4 essential foot care products in this line.
My sensitive skin
loves EO’s natural products and soaks up the essential oils. I
found this entire line soothing, refreshing and calming to my
skin. These products are also well-known for their natural
A "must have" for summer.
