Inspired By: The Seasons

Philosophy Candy Cane Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath: The smell of candy cane is obviously synonymous with winter and the holidays.  This all-in-one product smells like your childhood.

L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream: Lavender exudes spring and all things floral and colorful after a few months of dreary, cold weather.  Your hands probably need the moisture.

The Body Shop Coconut Milk Body Lotion: What trees grow on the beach?  Palm trees.  And what grows on palm trees?  COCONUTS.  It’s a main ingredient in sunscreen and all things summer.

June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque: Pumpkin is a staple ingredient for a TON of beauty products since it has a ton of benefits for your skin.  This peel is fantastic; it won’t dry you out and my face feels fresh and rejuvenated after using it.

Gift Idea: LATHER Planting Seeds gift set (for your mom)

So if there’s one thing that my sister and I gave my mother while growing up, it was a headache.  When I came across this adorably perfect Planting Seeds gift set from LATHER, I knew my mom simply had to have it.  The lavender-themed gift set celebrates the power of aromatherapy and LATHER’s founder’s discovery that lavender essential oil helped ease the pain of her migraine headaches.  It was actually with this discovery that she gained a passion for natural healing and decided to create LATHER out of a desire to help others and, as an added bonus, LATHER will donate $5 from the sale of each gift set to benefit the National Headache Foundation for headache awareness, education and outreach.  It really is the perfect gift…for $20 you get the Oatmeal Lavender Soap, Lavender Aromatherapy Candle and a little packet of Lavender seeds for your mom to plant come spring.
