I received something of value from Tomoson in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own. No other compensation was received. Full policy here
I was given the opportunity to review Relax Essential Oil by #MiaMariu. I have recently become interested in oils for soap making and natural healing. I couldn't wait to try Relax. With two kids, relaxing is not something I often get to do. I often find myself becoming more tense and easily aggravated by my girls' actions. I don't like that about myself, so I decided the oil was worth a try.

The Relax Essential Oil key ingredients are lavender, sandalwood, cedarwood, and Clary sage. The oils come in a nice sized container with a dropper. The smell is very pleasant. I mainly smell a very soft lavender.

Here is a list of the oils that Mia Mariu offers, along with what they do for your body.

It is antioxidant rich, high in Vitamin E, fat and protein content along with containing many essential nutrients.

Apricot Oil -Similar soothing properties as almond oil. Apricot oil is a favorite oil for mothers and babies because of its ability to soothe chaffed skin gently.   It is quickly absorbed into the skin; it is often used as massage oil to deliver benefits such as reducing stress, pain and inflammation and instilling an overall sense of well-being.  Apricot kernel oil is also very mild and non-irritating, making it suitable for children and infant massage.   It is cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the fruit of the apricot tree.  This natural oil is light-colored and fragrant, imparting a somewhat nutty aroma.

Macadamia Oil  - in addition to its moisturizing benefit, it is a nutrient-dense oil which is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids that protect your skin and helps promote healing process after a sunburn or other types of skin damage.  As an added bonus, Macadamia oil mimics your skin’s natural oils, making it an ideal match for maintaining your glow.

Coconut Oil - an excellent massage oil for the skin as well as it acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin.  It is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of the skin, delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
