I’m a big fan of customized oil blends for religious/devotional purposes, making them at home myself at times. As such, I was thrilled to receive a tester of a lovely new oil for Turan (Etruscan name for Aphrodite).
This devotional oil by Lykeia Botanica is described as:
- Over a broken up cinnamon stick
- Rose oil
- Bergamot oil
- Myrrh oil
- Neroli oil
- in an argan oil base
Rose and myrrh oils are frequently found in the scents I wear, but not as often the bergamot or neroli; that being said, I love this oil. It’s well balanced, fresh but subtle, and has complex undertones. The aroma is stronger in the vial that on the body, as one might expect, and it’s nice and light on the skin. The fragrance is barely noticeable after a while, which suits me just fine because of my olfactory sensitivities.
Probably because of the rose oil and argan oil, the oil leaves the skin very soft and silky as well, which seems very appropriate for the Goddess to whom this oil is dedicated.
If you’re the kind of person who likes using oils on statuary, a little of this would go a long way, and the purchase and use of this oil would be luxuriant and honoring. Very nicely done!
DISCLOSURE: I received a tester of this oil for free in exchange for my honest review. Thank you, Lykeia Botanica!
