There is an amazing bath & body company out there that is a 4-letter word in my house. Yes, its name has 4 letters, it begins with an L and ends with an H and I have a love-hate relationship with them. I loooooove their products. All their products. Haven’t found one yet that I didn’t fall head-over-heels for. But……..
I HATE that in order to get their stuff I have to either drive to a major center to stand in the middle of their store inhaling so deeply that the dust-bunnies come creeping out from under their shelves or I have to do mail-order. I don’t want do mail-order. I want to sniff it before I buy it. I want to touch it before I plunk down $8 for an itty-bitty bar of soap.
So to heck with it. I just made my own. You’ve seen the soaps already. I’ve been using them in the shower. My skin is soft, they lather like crazy, they’re creamy, foamy, and downright delectable.
Today was the bath salts. “Bath Salts” is such an inadequate term for these though. They’re all enriched with skin-loving oils or butters to leave you soft and silky even in the horror we call winter. My favorite is the Pure Decadence Spa Bath line. These are also enriched with my own blends of Pure Essential Oils and smell divine. The Rainforest Pure Decadence Spa Bath is a blend of Patchouli and 2 other Essential Oils. It reminds me of the West Coast Temperate Rainforest. My favorite part of living in Vancouver was wandering through the forests of UBC and just BREATHING it all in.
The Island Blossom Pure Decadence Spa Bath takes me back to Hawaii. With Neroli and 2 other Essential Oils it has a rich, heady fragrance that I find flat-out intoxicating. Just ask my husband…he laughed, shook his head, and walked away from me when he saw me sitting there with my face buried in the bag opening for this stuff. Sniffing. No…..snuffling, really. I may not take this to the Craft Fair on Saturday. I may hide it. For ME.
