I recently wrote about a store opening event that I attended at Neal's Yard Remedies, and I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out some of their products. Here is a short overview of each product.
Wild Rose Beauty Balm (10 year anniversary packaging)
I was really excited when I found out I got to test out the Rose Beauty Balm. The 10 Year anniversary packaging is beautiful, and I love the scent. This was my first time trying a cleansing balm, and I am liking it so far. Some of the ingredients included are rosehip, jojoba, shea butter, geranium, rosemary, frankincense, and patchouli.
Create Your Own Custom Massage Oil (essential oils: grapefruit, lavender, rose, cedarwood)
Creating my own massage oil and body wash was such a fun experience. For the massage oil there is a base oil that you use, and from their you choose some essential oils to include. There was an array of top notes, middle notes, and base notes to choose from. I picked grapefruit as my top note, lavender and rose as middle notes, and cedar wood as my base. I wanted the lavender to be the most noticeable scent, so I added a few extra drops of the lavender oil. I really love the scent that this combination produced.
Create Your Own Hair and Body Wash (essential oils: grapefruit, lavender, rose, cedarwood)
Creating my own body wash was a similar process. There was a unsented body wash to start with, and then I picked and added some essential oils. I used the same combination for the body wash and massage oil. As before I added a few extra drops of the lavender oil so that this would be the predominant scent.
Summer Garden Tea (Lavender, spearmint, rose, elderberry)
I love tea almost as much as I love coffee, and I especially love herbal teas. I love making a cup of tea in the evening, and the Summer Garden Tea is the perfect evening tea. I think this tea would also be great iced.
