Apothecary Skincare and Aromatherapy from C.O. Bigelow:
I am so excited to dive into a review of some C.O. Bigelow skincare and aromatherapy products! I have been a fan of their Rose Salve, Mentha Lip Shine, and Nightime Lip Balm for years. So, now I am excited to explore the line further! 

C.O. Bigelow is one of the oldest Apothecary brands around with a long history of great formulas. The line offers a huge variety of skincare, bath and body products, homeopathic remedies, hair, makeup, men's products, fragrances, tools, aromatherapy products, home scents, and even baby products! Today we are going to talk aromatherapy, perfume oils, and skincare as those are the items that I have recently had the opporutnity to try out. Let me just start out by saying that I am a huge fan and would love to explore the line even further! 

In addition to the C.O. Bigelow skincare line, the site also offers a few other skincare brands. I was able to try out the C.O. Bigelow Rosewater Tonic for review. 

C.O. Bigelow Rosewater Skin Tonic is infused with purifying witch hazel, hydrating rose extract and soothing chamomile. In addition, this balancing toner also contains exfoliating salicylic acid for a clean, clear complexion. I am a big fan of using witch hazel for a toner as it is anti-inflammatory and soothing. Plus, salicylic acid is a favorite ingredient in my skincare routine as it does work wonders to keep my skin clear. This toner is a nice 2nd step to my skincare routine on evenings that I do not use a retinol (as that does not mix well with salicylic acid). 
Price: $18

C.O. Bigelow has a fantastic assortment of Perfume Oils. Perfume oils are not to be confused with essential oils. These are not essential oils. Rather, they are a pre-mixed fragrance in a carrier oil. So, they are not straight essential oils but they possibly have essential oils mixed in as part of the fragrance component. These blends can be directly applied to the skin to be worn as a fragrance. I got to try out both the Fresia and the Rose Fragrance oils. I like the lovely floral scent of these fragrance oils. You only need to dab a small amount on your skin. This will last you all day with no need to re-apply. I would really love to try their Vanilla fragrance oil next! The Perfume Oils retail for $15.00 each. Since it only takes a small amount, a bottle will last a long time. That is a tremendous value for a fragrance. 

As many of ya'll know, I am a big fan of essential oils. I am almost always diffusing oils in my home and I love making DIY bath and body products with Essential Oils. So, I am super excited that C.O. Bigelow sell essential oils! I was able to try out their Jasmine essential oil and I am so excited to finally add Jasmine to my EO collection! Jasmine is beautiful as a fragrance (mixed with a carrier oil or added to a lotion). In addition, Jasmine has amazing properties with indications for use as the following: antidepressant, antiseptic, emollient,  antispasmodic and sedative. Not to mention the aphrodisiac properties. This is a lovely uplifiting oil with a beautiful and complex scent. C.O. Bigelow has a huge assortment of Essential Oils available. I am really excited to explore their Essential Oils further as the quality is fanastic as is the assortment of offerings. 

Overall, I am super impressed with the Apothecary Skincare, Aromatherapy, and Perfume Oil products that I got to try out from C. O. Bigelow!
