This paraben-free self-care treat comes in both fragrance-free and essential oil blends. Choose from scent no. 1, which is amber, cedar leaf, clove, lemongrass, Medjool date, and tonka bean; no. 2, which is pink pepper, gurjun balsam, lemon, and cedarwood; and no. 3, which is sandalwood, eucalyptus, cassis, and Haitian vetiver.
