When New York fashion stylist Linda Rodin began blending 11 essential oils in her kitchen, her dreams didn’t extend beyond finding an effective moisturizer for her dry skin. Two years later Rodin Olio Lusso has become an underground favorite of beauty junkies, selling at such chic boutiques as John Derian in New York. In December she follows up with a body oil for skin from the neck down. Potions three and four are already in the works, but other than describing them as “something for the home and something else for the body,” Rodin remains mum. $80; oliolusso.com.
