Of late, I've really delved into bath oils. They make for a really luxurious experience, and not only do they have aromatherapeutic benefits, they also serve the purpose of being incredibly moisturizing. It's also opened up a world of new brands to me, which leads me to Etta + Billie. I've been obsessing over the brand's Clary Sage and Black Pepper Oil, which helps with stress, but also has an aphrodisiac element (meow). For more on what makes this product so incred, Alana Rivera, founder of Etta + Billie, gave us some scoop.
