I can’t wait to make some solid perfume! I love heady floral scents like gardenia and jasmine that permeate a room and are, in a word, intoxicating. Plus having a solid perfume pot is much less messy than leaky sample bottles or toting around an entire bottle of perfume for reapplication throughout the day.

Here in Colorado, one of the driest states in the country, there are times where the temperature quickly becomes unbearable. So how do I manage a little lounge time in the backyard, by the pool or in the park and mountains? Why with a little mist, my dear fellows! I had never even thought of using something as great as green tea and now I’m thinking that a little lemongrass oil (amazing for the skin as well) would be great either on its own or along with the green tea in my neon blue mister bottle!

As I’ve mentioned in many posts in the past, I love to pamper myself with little spa days and a huge part of the fun is blending bath oils, making bath bombs, and making scrubs for my body or feet.
I am very lucky that I have very soft feet to begin with, but that shouldn’t denote a lack of need in the scrubbing department! Aside from sloughing off dead skin, scrubs are excellent for promoting healthy circulation and since I walk (or bike) everywhere, a good soak and scrub day for my feet is a very good thing!
