It might seem unreasonable to get so psyched about shower gels and lotions, but with bodhi I always am! Currently bodhi has several Christmas sets available, and I am showing you Pod Bath & Body Gift Set today. If you know an aromatherapy fan who showers in the morning, this might just make a beautiful present! [Read more...]
I actually tried to write this post the other night to no avail. On a dark and rainy night, the words simply didn’t come to me. After all, L’Occitane Fleur d’Or & Acacia is such a bright scent! As I sit here enjoying some autumn sunlight, I am finally ready to tell you all about it. As one of the new members in L’Occitane’s La Collection de Grasse family (the other, Cèdre & Oranger, caters to the male audience), this sunny floral might not be your typical “holiday” scent.

Everybody likes a good story, and Korres is a brand with one. It all started when George Korres (I got to meet him in Brussels a while back. He is so super nice!) started working in a pharmacy while studying pharmacology at the University of Athens. He was skeptical about homeotherapy at first, but he soon discovered the amazing power of herbs. This knowledge led him to found Korres in 1996.

My love for L’Occitane has not been a secret. For someone who is into natural scents and ingredients in skincare products, this is a brand you can’t miss out on. What with lavender, almond, and roses however, their Verbena line has consistently stayed off my radar.
Not anymore! Each summer L’Occitane adds some limited edition products to the Verbena line. This year they come with a citrus twist! Inspired by traditional sorbet recipes of Provence, the Sorbet Verbena products contain lemon and mint essential oils on top of verbena extract from Corsica.
(The verbena sorbet I tasted. I’m normally not a fan of sorbet, but it was perfectly summery!)
In this post I will review the original Verbena Shower Gel, the Cooling Hand Cream Gel, and the Sorbet Verbena Cooling Gloss. Only the Cooling Gloss is limited edition, but all of these are perfect for summer as they are very refreshing!
