Tammy Fender Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil

While I’m usually more into exotic body oil blends, there was something about Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil that drew me in.

It might possibly have something to do with the fact that pretty much everything Tammy Fender touches turns your skin into gold.

Tammy Fender Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil

Tammy Fender sent me a sample of Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil to review. It costs $65 for an 8-ounce glass pump jar.

A seemingly simple, one-note body oil, Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil is something of a dream for minimalist beauties who love lavender but want top-notch carrier oils for moisture and suppleness.

That’s why Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil combines the calming and soothing properties of Bulgarian lavender with Mother Nature’s most-nourishing oils: think sunflower, grapeseed, avocado and rosehip.

While some may not be as excited by old favorites sunflower and grapeseed, we can’t discount how incredibly important both of these ingredients are to natural skincare. Both are extremely high in vitamin E, essential fatty acids and linoleic acid.

This helps set the base for more “interesting” oils such as avocado and rosehip.

Avocado oil is rich in vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E as well as amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids.

Rosehip oil is loaded with vitamin C, citrus bioflavonoid and a tons of essential fatty acids, ideal for strengthening collagen and smoothing skin’s appearance.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Glycine Soja (Soybean Oil), *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Seed) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Rosa Mosqueta (Rose Hip Seed) Oil, Essential Oils of Lavendula Angustiflora (Pure Bulgarian Lavender). *Certified Organic

This luxe, clear, medium viscosity base hydrates thirsty skin while filling your senses with the powerful aromatherapeutic effects of Bulgarian lavender.

Bulgarian lavender has a full, rich, heady scent compared to other types of lavender. The beautiful floral scent smells truly like fresh-cut lavender and is so multidimensional, making it outstanding in a one-note body oil.

Like lavender in general, Bulgarian lavender helps balance and soothe inflamed skin and promotes cell growth to help minimize scarring. For those of us who suffer from body acne, Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil doubles as the perfect preventative treatment that feels nothing like the somewhat clinical (and definitely un-sexy) body acne products on the market.

For those of us who adore florals and enjoy layering our natural perfumes, Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil serves as the perfect base scent for mixing in fragrances with notes of chamomile, clary sage, bergamot, jasmine, manderin, geranium, palmarosa, ylang ylang, rosewood and rosemary.

At about $8 an ounce, Tammy Fender’s Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil is a steal in our growing world of luxury natural body oils. I will easily repurchase it, as I love the minimalist packaging and focus on high quality, organic ingredients (and a bold Bulgarian lavender that my nose finds absolutely heavenly).
