I have always been a water person.. and I know many others are just the same. I am always drawn to water when ailments hit, I am tired, sore, or just for pure self care. I even opted for a water birth to bring my baby into the world and just being in my own space under water brought a sense of safety in a very vulnerable moment. So naturally, as an Aquarian, I love my baths. I could soak in a bath everyday if I had the time!
That said, I am very picky about what products go into my bath with me. They MUST be natural since being in warm water will actually cause your body to draw more of the product through your skin than normal as heat opens up your pores. This also creates the perfect environment to add some healing ingredients and products to your skin and wellness routine. Your skin will drink up the nutrition if you give it some!
Before I jumped onto the green and wellness bandwagon years ago, I would shop for these products based solely on their scent! I do love pretty smelling products and so I have scoured the green community for years trying to find a brand that incorporated gorgeous smells into their bath products. You will find many MANY bath salts smelling of fresh lavender or mint.. I love essential oils, but we all know that when we enter the green world you seem to find lavender everywhere! Lavender is a staple in my household but I do like to mix it up a little. I started this blog to create an easier transition to green living for anyone wanting to eliminate chemicals from their routine. I also wanted to make sure that the “convenience and attraction” of conventional beauty brands wasn’t lost in the shuffle.. as many green brands have just as much appeal and in this case “pretty smell” factor!
So after years of trying to find an amazing bath and body company I can finally say that I’ve found one of the great ones to share with you all! Mrs. B’s Handmade soaps has an entire line of beautifully scented artisanal products for all the mermaids out there looking for some products to add to the water in their beauty routine. My favourite part (besides being all natural, mostly organic, and harvested from her own organic garden) they smell DELICIOUS!
I was sent a beautiful package of goodies to test out and share with all of you! This package will also be up for grabs in an upcoming giveaway so keep your eyes peeled on our instagram page:
Here’s a list of my picks and why I love them:
Citrus Zing Foaming Sugar Scrub: This is a blend of Jojoba oil, Organic sugar, Essential oil mix, Foaming bath whip, and Vitamin E. It smells like the sweetest citrus fruits you could possibly find and outranks all of the citrus bath products out there using fake perfumes in their products. The foaming bath whip is created in house with saponified olive and coconut oils, vitamin E and purified water.. So gentle for the skin and unlike other foaming agents that can cause a plethora of health issues! This scrub leaves me skin so soft after a bath and the soft scent sticks with me throughout the day.
Pink Grapefruit & Mint Artisanal Soap: You see so many artisanal soaps around but this one has become my favourite by far. It’s gorgeous colours are created with pink clay which draws impurities from your skin. The scent of grapefruit is so real it feels like youre jumping into a glass of grapefruit juice and the mint leaves a refreshing zing to the skin! Perfect for morning when you need a little pick me up in the shower!
Lily Bells (Oat Vanilla, Lavender, & Eucalyptus): We’ve all seen those addictive videos on insta displaying how “bath bombs” create the most luxurious smelling and colourful bath water. What you may not know is that many companies will suggest that these are naturally created by in reality, they still hold some pretty nasty chemicals and dyes within them. So I was beyond excited to find that Mrs. B’s has created the natural and healthy version of these bath treats and named them “Lily Bells”.. How cute is that?! They are made out of all natural ingredients and fizz up your bath water with healing ingredients such as oats, vanilla, lavender, and eucalyptus.
Botanical Spa Sea Salt Soak: This is going down as one of my favourite bath soaks. The Soak is made of Dead sea salt, mediterranean sea salt, pink himalayan sea salt, epsom salt, dried rose petals, calendula petals, lavender buds, dried orange, and a mix of essential oils. The smell of this soak is intoxicating and sticks with me for a few days on my skin as a subtle and floral perfume. The mix of different salts offers a range of health benefits including detox, softening, purifying, healing, etc. The organic flower petals all have their own health benefits
including healing calendula, calming lavender, and skin repairing rose petals. The blend of essential oils and natural scents are so unbelievable that I am at a loss for words of how to explain it in writing.. it just blooms with the prettiest of scent!
