Mullein & Sparrow
I have come to love essential oils, and I use them for many things every day. I’m also a fan of body oil and enjoy using it alongside lotion during the winter months. Over the holidays, I tried a few oils from Mullein & Sparrow, a Brooklyn-based, small-batch botanical store, and instantly fell in love.
Lemongrass and lavender are my two very favorite essential oils, and Mullein & Sparrow carries body oils made from each scent. The Lemongrass Mint Body Oil is a fresh citrus scent that is perfect for waking up on winter mornings. Lemongrass has a calming effect, and paired with mint, it’s a gorgeous fragrance that gently sinks into your skin as it moisturizes.
Mullein & Sparrow’s Lavender Blossom is also a lovely scent, and my bottle was a limited edition version filled with lavender flowers that is now sold out. The flowers add a romantic touch, but they make application a bit messy. I think I prefer the plain oil without any flowers added. Still, it’s a gorgeous fragrance that will carry me into the spring.
I also tried a small bottle of Immortelle & Myrrh Facial Serum, mostly out of curiosity. I don’t usually have much luck with facial oils, but I’ve been using a few drops with my morning moisturizer and it seems to be working well. A little goes a long way, so I’m not in danger of running out anytime soon. The company makes several facial oils and serums, and there’s one for every skin issue.
I’m really thrilled with these beautiful oils and I’m hoping to try more of Mullein & Sparrow’s products in the future.
