Let’s be honest, sometimes we don’t have the time to take a shower and scrub all of our skin with soap.  But it’s important to smell nice, especially when you’re trying to impress someone special.  When stepping out of the shower, try hitting yourself with a quick mist of body spray, and you’ll be amazed at the fragrance.  It’s almost like putting on perfume or cologne, but a little less potent.  In fact, a lot of people use body spray instead of perfume or cologne because it’s not quite so powerful.  We all know there’s nothing worse than being over-scented. 

Body sprays come in hundreds of different scents that are just as diverse as deodorant.  In addition, both women and men can make use of body spray.  You can think of body spray just like perfume or cologne; one spray isn’t the solution for all occasions, be sure to try different scents and see just who notices you!

Bath Gift BasketLavender is a flower belonging to the mint family and is characterized by its beautiful purple flowers, as well as a fresh, relaxing scent.  The plant has a variety of uses, and is widely grown in gardens.  Lavender is often dried and used in flower arrangements, as well as perfumes and potpourri.  It has also been grown for commercial use, mainly for the extraction of lavender oil, which is used in lavender bath gift baskets and for aromatherapy.

 Lavender nectar is a favorite of honey bees, who produce a lavender honey, and amongst other sweets, there is a lavender sugar which is sugar combined with the lavender herb.  The plant is also often used in fine cuisine to provide a semi-sweet, elegant flavor.


Chapped Lips are the Worst!

Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than having chapped lips in the winter.  Having chapped lips outdoors, at work, or during a holiday gathering ruins the occasion just as fast as spilling wine on your suit or dress.  While it’s not necessary to carry lip balm all the time, during the winter you’ll seldom regret it if you keep a tube in your coat or jacket pocket.  When it comes to lip balm, you also want to ensure that the flavor doesn’t spoil your food.  Nothing’s worse than having cherry lip balm and then eating spicy barbeque – Yuck! 

It’s also important to remember that if you apply lip balm regularly, even if your lips aren’t chapped, you won’t have chapped lips as often in the future.  It’s a good idea to put on lip balm at least three or four times per week during the winter, and more often if your lips are chapped of course.
