Buff & Butter Essential Oils

Buff & Butter sell a range of Aromatherapy and natural products, such as clays, soaps and essential oils. The lovely people at Buff & Butter kindly sent me 5 essential oils of my choice to review!

The Buff & Butter website lists the benefits of each essential oil, directions on how to use it and which other oils it blends well with. I used this helpful information to decide which products I wanted to try:

Why I chose this oil:
 Has sedative properties which help with depression and insomnia
 Soothes symptoms of menstruation

How I used this oil:
 Used to massage abdomen
- Added a few drops to a bath

What I thought of this oil:
I was surprised at how much I actually liked the scent of this oil, because I'm not usually a fan of floral smells but this was really nice. I found it did temporarily alleviate some of the menstrual cramps I was experiencing, but this only lasted around 30 minutes or so. I think I benefited more from adding the oil to my bath, as it really relaxed me before bed.

Why I chose this oil:
 Has a warm aroma and feeling
 Good to use when suffering with a cold

How I used this oil:
 Added a few drops to a bath

What I thought of this oil:
I'm not sure whether my skin is too sensitive to this oil or if I am actually allergic to it, but unfortunately I did not have a pleasant experience with it. I had to get out of the bath after about 3 minutes because I could feel an incredibly intense stinging/burning feeling on my skin. This soon led to my skin going red and lumps appearing in the particularly sore areas (which thankfully went away the next day). I was quite disappointed to have reacted like this, as the scent was lovely!

Why I chose this oil:
 Has an appealing lemony scent
 Great for oily skin and acne
 Natural insect repellent

How I used this oil:
• Added a few drops to my facial toner
 Diluted and used in an oil burner

What I thought of this oil:
This was probably my favourite oil! Although I initially found the scent too potent, I soon got used to it and it works absolute wonders for my skin! I noticed significant improvements with breakouts after just a few hours and my skin was left feeling really soft. Additionally I used the oil to deter moths which like to hang out in my bedroom - I haven't seen a single moth since using this oil! I was really impressed with this!

Why I chose this oil:
 Has a sweet fragrance
 Relaxing properties which are helpful for insomnia

How I used this oil:
 Added a few drops to a bath

What I thought of this oil:
I love this oil - the scent was gorgeous. I felt really relaxed after using it in the bath and I drifted off to sleep really easily that night. I also found that my skin was really soft after using this.

Why I chose this oil:
 I love the smell of tea tree products
 Great for the skin and treating acne

How I used this oil:
  Added a few drops to my facial toner

What I thought of this oil:
As I said above, I love the smell of tea tree products so that was one of the things I liked the most about this oil. Although I felt that the Citronella left my skin feeling a bit softer, this oil definitely gave me a really well-cleansed feeling.


Overall I would say I had a great experience with Buff & Butter. They were really friendly, my products were delivered within a week and I found the website extremely helpful and informative. I had never used essential oils prior to this, but they have definitely become an integral part of my body/skincare routine now! To check out all of the Buff & Butter essential oils, click here.
