REVIEW: Enfusia Vanilla Body Lotion--Holiday Present idea?

The holiday season is here. So what to get fertile friends or self?

I'm not a big lotions 'n' potions kind of person.
Normally, I just use straight shea butter or olive oil or coconut oil as my simple and effective (and cheap!)

Not to mention non-toxic. We already know about how bad parabens are, but did you know artificial fragrances are a no-no (musks, for example, can even throw off your hormones, and they often put weird chemicals in them to disperse the fragrances)? Plain essential oils, ideally organic, are the way to go.

But sometimes it's nice to have a little treat, and I REALLY like this Enfusia Vanilla body lotion. It's very lightweight (too lightweight to use as a massage lotion) and an extra swipe of it can calm the frizzy ends of hair (how versatile). MAN FERTILITY commented on the fertility friendly* scent. Organic ingredients and no chemicals, and I have to admit, sometimes it's nice having a pump action dispenser instead of digging coconut oil out of a jar.

*Vanilla has good fertility mojo, historically a well-known aphrodisiac, according to the Susun Weed newsletter, as an "
essential oil that stimulates sexuality," along with rose, sandalwood, ylang/ylang, patchouli, cinnamon.
