i have been using Dr. Bronner's lavender coconut lotion for over a year now on my prenatal patients as and end to the exam. My patients love it! The smell is wonderful, and not abrasively strong at all. It lingers in a way that does exactly what aromatherapy should: you get wafts of calming lavender for hours to come. The lotion runs in very nicely and does not leave any greasy residue. I highly recommend this product! My patients buy it for themselves all the time!
