Vitality Aromatherapy-My New Favourite

In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that Vitality Aromatherapy is a new company that my friend (Lou) has recently started, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be testing some of the products she will eventually offer for sale on her website.

Regardless, I am officially in love with her gorgeous, perfectly scented, homeopathic products!  So far, my favourites have been her Peppermint & Lavender Aloe Gel and the Body Butter.

 With the running I’ve been doing, the Aloe Gel has become the first thing I reach for when I get home, and I can’t get enough of it!   Beautiful smell, great cooling properties for my hot tootsies, and the aloe and naiouli are doing a great job of healing my various blisters and pain points more quickly than if I were to simply let them be.   Plus, I find that the Peppermint & Lavender combo just makes me happy. J

The Body Butter...oh, what can I say about the body butter?!?...  The cocoa butter smell is light enough to notice, but not in a sickly-sweet Cadbury/Hershey chocolate bar kind of way; it is divine.  The butter simply melts in your hands (literally), and goes on so smoothly.  I honestly have licked my hands after using-it simply looks & smells good enough to eat-and is!  Don’t judge me.

Anyhoo.  I am so incredibly proud of Lou-she’s been working towards her goal of getting her company up & running for some time now and I can honestly say that after testing some of her products, that she will be a raging success.    She’s passionate and knowledgeable about what she does, and that shines thru in the beautiful things she makes.

If you’re interested in learning more, you can visit Vitality Aromatherapy and see for yourself.  Lou is still finalizing all of the online ordering bits of the website, but she can still be contacted via the website to place a bespoke order.

Here’s to you Lou-I wish you all the best!  


  1. sounds wonderful, esp. for those poor feet of yours!!! And good luck to Lou, starting your own business of any kind is hard and tedious and takes up a lot of time. Peppermint and Lavender Aloe Gel, my poor feet would love me too if I drenched them in that stuff. :)
    I use cocoa butter on my skin every single day, my feet, hands and face usually, it's amazing how much it makes you look and feel better.

  2. Having a lot of blisters means something is going on with your shoes/socks. I'm sure you're wearing proper shoes/socks but maybe switch brands? Any good running store with trained staff will help you find some that work for you.

    I think you're a total rock star for running a marathon though!!
