What could be better than a hot soak or steamy shower after braving a day of the season’s chilliest weather? Step up your self-care routine by slathering on some of this warming chai body oil. Made with cinnamon, ginger and clove essential oils – plus your choice of a plant-based carrier oil (sweet almond, macadamia or avocado all work great!) – it not only soaks your skin with soothing moisture, it’s scented just like everyone’s favorite fall latte. Double the batch and give a bottle to a friend as a gift. Anyone (especially those in icy climates!) will appreciate the heart-warming gesture.
