This first day of spring is a mere 11 days away. But, with the remnants of a late snow storm still very much in evidence, it feels anything but springlike. Luckily, I have Black Canyon body lotion in yummy cucumber and melon to trick my mind into feeling a bit more “in season.”
This body lotion has an absolutely amazing scent that is fresh and fruity, but is not overpowering. The lotion itself makes my skin feel nourished and soft, but not greasy. It also absorbs quickly, so it won’t stain clothing (since I am always in a hurry in the morning, it’s a huge plus!).
What makes Black Canyon Body Lotion different from other body lotions, is the hemp oil base. Initially, I was quite skeptical… a cannabis-based product sounded so “aging hippie” to me. And, was it even legal? What I found out really surprised me!
Hemp oil is entirely legal and is derived from the hemp seed, not the leaf. Even Dr. Oz says, “…hemp seeds you see in the store do not contain THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana).”
And, according to a recent article on the popular health and wellness site Z Living, hemp oil is the only vegetable oil that contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids in the ideal ratio of 3 to 1, optimal for body needs. Plus, “…thanks to its content of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer.”
And in fact, after just a few days of use, my skin lost that dry, papery look it seems to get over the course of every long winter. I also found that the lotion is especially effective for use after shaving.
In addition to the cucumber and melon, Black Canyon Home and Body offers many other choices. But, the two that most appeal to me are the Apricot Mango Body Lotion and the Blackberry and Tangerine Premium Body Lotion. And, all of the Black Canyon Body Lotions retail for just $6.95!
Black Canyon also offers other premium scented items such as luxury bath salts and soy candles. To see the entire line of scented home and body items and welcome spring, visit Black Canyon.
