My husband bought me this lotion a couple years ago, and it’s definitely one that I have to keep in stock – because it’s by far my favorite lotion. Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy line has some amazing scents, and Jasmine-Vanillais by far, my favorite. I have gotten more compliments wearing this lotion, than just about any perfume I’ve tried. I highly recommend this lotion – you won’t be disappointed!

Experience the power of essential oils every time you moisturize. In this blend, Jasmine (said to inspire a relaxed awareness) works in synergy with Vanilla (favored for its soothing nature) and other comforting essential oils to help promote a sense of harmony.

Holiday gifts that give back!

Even better than a great gift is a great product that helps out the millions around the world that are less fortunate. The Lotus Flower scent from Nature’s Gate smells so great and the lotion absorbs quickly without leaving any residue on your hands. Check out Nature’s Gate Lotus Flower gift or their other scents, Pineapple and Vanilla Bean at your local Whole Foods Market.

Even better, they help a good cause – a portion of sales of the gift sets go towards Nature’s Gate’s partnership with WaterAid America- a nonprofit organization that helps underdeveloped countries build sustainable water systems.

What’s cool about the gift sets (body lotion and body wash) is that they’re created around ingredients that are abundant in the countries that Nature’s Gate will be helping through this partnership. For instance, their Vanilla Bean gift set features ingredients from Madagascar and their Lotus Flower gift set features ingredients from India, two countries facing a lack of clean water! Additionally, ALL Nature’s Gate products are free of animal-derived ingredients and are NEVER tested on animals.

The Lotus Flower symbolizes purity, life and enlightenment. In India, over 170 million people don’t have access to safe water, and almost 9% of children die before their 5th birthday, primarily due to water-related diseases.

This gift set features ingredients and scents from India, a country facing a lack of clean water. Nature’s Gate supports WaterAid America to help poor communities in Asia and Africa gain access to sustainable supplies of safe, clean water.

Body Wash: Gently cleanses without stripping skin of essential moisture. Lotus Flower Extract and Indian Gooseberry contain high levels of skin enhancing antioxidants while Organic Mango Butter and Jojoba Oil moisturize and revitalize skin.

Body Lotion: Nourishing and hydrating body lotion features Lotus Flower Extract and Tumeric known to improve skin radiance and tone. Organic Mango Butter and Jojoba Oil moisturize and revitalize skin.

Available at your local natural product stores and Whole Foods Market.


Eco-Friendly Beauty!

According to the Daily Makeover’s style authority, Rachel Hayes, one trend that’s steadily gaining in popularity is eco-friendly beauty. It’s a perspective that pampers skin, hair and the environment, leaving everything it touches looking fabulous!

Here are some of Rachel’s favorite tips for earth-loving beauty:

1. Save water by turning it off while you are waiting for your hair conditioner or mask to sink in. This could also be a great time to do a body scrub because the water won’t rinse it immediately off your body.

2. Pick a body or face scrub that has naturally-sourced granules like crushed almond or walnut. Synthetic beads may not be biodegradable and are not the kind of fish food we want our marine life consuming.

3. Use bar hand soap instead of liquid hand soap. Not only does it last longer (which saves money), but it also has a smaller carbon footprint because there is less packaging and plastic.

4. Whip up your own beauty treatments instead of buying prepackaged ones. Olive oil makes a great all around moisturizer – rub it on cuticles while you’re cooking! It’s also great for dry ends of hair.

5. Don’t be over-served! Making your products last as long as possible will reduce your overall consumption of packaging, materials, and the carbon footprint that comes along with it. Use only a dime-size of shampoo, a quarter size of conditioner, a pea size of face cream, and a shot-glass size of body lotion.
