Ben’s Body Basics 

Hydrating Alkaline Aloe Body Spray


Scented with eucalyptus & lavender, this body spray is invigorating, lightweight & refreshing. I genuinely enjoy smelling like a plethora of essential oils, so this body spray is perfect. It contains aloe vera juice, a skin loving ingredient that is known to heal & soften the skin. This will come in handy during the upcoming winter season to help keep the skin hydrated. Eucalyptus essential oil has many medicinal benefits, and when used in aromatherapy, can remove mental exhaustion & rejuvenate. Lavender essential oil is known to calm & soothe. I take the time to inhale deeply as I spray this onto my body to reap the benefits of both oils. 

Soothing Lavender Almond Body Scrub

img_5265After using this delicate body scrub for the first time, I could not believe how soft, silky, & smooth my skin was. Ground almonds & pure cane sugar serve as the all natural exfoliants in this holy grail body scrub. The vitamin E oil it contains provided my skin with an abundance of moisture. Geranium essential oil benefits the health of your skin by improving circulation, and is definitely the reason why your skin will have a glow to it after using. The skin glow was TOO real.

I loved using this scrub in my Sunday self-care beauty routine, it works extremely well as a foot scrub. Your significant other definitely wouldn’t mind massaging  or rubbing your feet after using this. Your feet will be baby soft.


Lavender Grapefruit Body Butter

My favorite thing about this body butter, besides it having me walk around with a heavenly aroma, is that its made with one of the most skin benefiting anti-aging oils, neem. Neem oil heals, softens, & moisturizes your skin. This body butter will leave your skin RADIANT. You’ll smell good, look good & feel even better.


I was told after using all these products that I smelled like a delectable aromatherapy candle. That was the best compliment I could have ever received lol. These products are amazing, don’t deprive yourself of these skin goodies.

The good stuff is meant for you.
