Hot Shopping: Healing Concoction

Like most of us who do several things at once, the lotion you put on your skin can also be a multitasker. At BodyFood, owner Irene Spedaliere, a member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy, has developed a skincare line that nourishes your dermis while delivering properties that combat colds, fight acne, insomnia and stress, prevent aching joints and muscles, or simply to lift the spirit. Pull up a seat at the aromatherapy bar of her Liberty Village retail spot for a custom blend comprised of essential oils and all natural ingredients, making it a suitable product for infants and children, too. If you don’t have time for a personalized potion, pre-made lotions, scrubs, butters, soaps, washes and lip balm are also available.
