When I first opened the bottle of Relaxing Lavender Massage Oil, right away I could smell the all natural Lavender scent. The aroma was very strong but the scent was pure and didn't smell sweet or fake. Only a very small amount about the size of a nickel was needed for a decent back massage. The oil was not running and was reasonably thick. It slid on easily and was quite simple to work into the skin. The lid on the bottle has broken off after just a few uses, I think the bottle cap is not made very well. Overall I would have to rank the product as average by having a nice relaxing smell and an easy to blend texture. I would recommend The Body Shop Relaxing Lavender Massage Oil as a good product to meet the massage and body care needs of all ages.
