Comments Off on Two Midsummer Night Dreamy Fragrances

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Long hot midsummer days cooled by end of the driveway neighborhood lemonade stands and swimming pools. Wet children and dogs. Packing for summer camps and long holiday weekends. Sunburns, insect bites, picnic lunches at the beach, patio dinners on the grill, conversations into the night under the stars. Thoughts of work and school routines fade. Schedules seem more elastic. Release yourself to the easy flow of summer.

At the end of your day, whatever the temperature outside, a warm bath remains an inviting treatment for summer skin. Unwind in a realm of tranquility or energize your spirit for a night out, perfect for whatever the evening holds in store for you. Luxuriate in two of our yummiest bestseller summer fragrances… DREAMSICLE SMILES and MIMI A TAHITI! → Read more

Comments Off on Mommy and Me Fragrance Fun

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Your daughter’s home from school!  Woo hoo!

For how long?  Is she going off to camp?  For just the day?  Or is it time for her weekly getaways? Always so hard.  I get it, and you’ll never stop missing her while she’s away.  One thing that helps, just a little bit?  Mommy and me skincare.

Because fragrance is memory,… and fresh natural luxury skincare and luscious fragrances seem too wonderful a secret to keep to yourself.

I know you want to share the dreamy pleasures of beautiful gentle products with your family and friends, and this includes, above all, your daughter (younger sister, niece, granddaughter, god daughter, or any special lovely young girl in your life) who loves fragrances and skincare products made just for her, sweet juicy love in a bottle or jar to nurture her skin.

You’ll love them too of course!

Some of you prefer 100% pure aromatherapy essential oils to fragrance skincare for the bath products whenever possible.  We understand, especially if you’ve experienced a sensitivity to some synthetic fragrances.

Our essential oils are ALWAYS 100% pure, authentic and genuine.  They are NEVER diluted with carrier oils that can negatively effect the quality and shelf-life of your essential oils.

Sometimes to give you a more beautifully unique and complex fragrance blend that’s not available with only fragrant essential oils, we blend our 100% pure essential oils with high quality synthetic (phthalate-free) fragrances to create the most elegant, refreshing, and playful fragrances we all adore.

Just one sec here:  Before we jump into talking about an important issue inherent with the use of essential oils in skincare products, an issue which most people don’t think about when touting the benefits of essential oils and citing the potential negatives associated with synthetic anything, including fragrances (e.g. sensitivities, allergies, irritation, etc.), let me tell you that very often, the primary culprit associated with synthetic fragrances is PHTHALATES.  Phthalates are the chemical compounds which can, in some individuals, cause headaches, respiratory irritation, and other temporary sensitivities.  Our highest quality synthetic fragrances are phthalate-free, for just that very good reason.

Want to know more about phthalates?  Several of you have asked me about this, so I’ll include a new post on the topic.  If you can’t wait to know more, shoot me an email, and I’ll share with you the scoop on phthalates, and why you can expect to see more and more quality beauty products listed as phthalate-free.

But, for right now, here’s a very important reason for using phthalate-free fragrances (rather than essential oils) when you’re out in the summer sun: PHOTOSENSITIVITY.

It’s important for you to know that just because we use 100% pure essential oils (not adulterated or blended with carrier oils which risk reducing their fragrant potency, therapeutic effectiveness and natural shelf-life), this does not mean that these essential oils are free of potential cosmetic issues when we expose our skin to the sun. → Read more
