Hothouse Botanicals

I have discovered an awesome new company! It is called Hothouse Botanicals.
At Hothouse Botanicals they create bath and body products that are 100% Vegan, contain simple natural ingredients, essential oils, and are housed in recyclable containers. They are totally natural and organic AND are free of harmful preservatives, contain no synthetic fragrances/perfumes and colors, and are Dirty Dozen Free. 

They have four signature scents that she develops herself using only essential oils.

Bourbon Geranium (a rosy minty scent)
Bergamot/Ylang Ylang (a spicy orange floral)
Lavender/Litsea Cubeba (a lavender lemon aroma)

Hothouse Botanicalls sent me a fabulous little sampling of their products.  I received all three of their solid fragrances, as well as her Vanilla Lime Sugar Scrub.


The sugar scrub?  HEAVEN.  Our youngest has been home sick the past week, and let me tell you....this sugar scrub saved me!  Every night I used it in the bath, after the baby went
to bed (for all of two fitful hours at a time!) and it was such a release.  And my skin just loved it!  You know when you are pregnant, it's like your skin is on fire ALL DAY LONG?  It's not just me, is it?  This sugar scrub totally killed it for me.  Loved it.  And it smelled so good!  Even my oblivious husband noticed it.
The organic solid perfumes are just as amazing!  I loved that
they are solid because then I can put them wherever I want.  I discovered that if I put them on my pressure points, then the scent would kind of rejuvenate itself during the day!  It was awesome.  My favorite was totally the licorice candy scent.  I was hesitant to try this one, because licorice perfume?!  Weird right?  WRONG.  It smelled so good, it made my kids hungry.  I love licorice, so I loved faintly smelling it all through the day.  There are two other scents too- Love's Embrace, a floral scent with jasmine and spice, and also Seductress (hubba hubba) which had violet and bergamot.  I loved these two also, but the Licorice Candy won me over.  

Hothouse Botanicals is an awesome company, with products I can totally stand behind.  Plus- they offer free shipping on all orders $40 and more.  AWESOME!

Go check em out, and tell her J.Danger sent ya!

XOXO (and smelling fine!)

awesome! I've been going back and forth on ideas of what to make/sell on etsy, not that this has made my decision any easier, but I love seeing what's already out there.

And since perfume and my nose rarely get along, I love stuff like this!

Sounds delicious...I recently was given chocolate face cleansing foam and I know I can't eat it, but I suppose one of these days I won't be able to resist...until then, my face feels satiny after I use it.
