Most people have their scent. Whether you are a musk person, gardenia, or lavender, there are specific aromas that draw you in. On a recent outing to one of my go-to markets, I discovered that they carried my favorite soap. I excitedly waved the soap in front my friend's nose, he quickly responded that it smelled like me. If rosemary and patchouli is my essence, I will gladly take it. Saipua Saltwater Rosemary and Patchouli Soap is woody and natural, yet subtle all at once. Crushed sea salt and nori add just the right amount of exfoliating texture, and high quality olive oil makes it luxuriously moisturizing. I often get regretful tearing open the beautiful packaging and putting the soap to use, no longer allowing the wrapped bar's essence to permeate my medicine cabinet. Saipua is known for their gorgeous wild and romantic floral arrangements, but their handcrafted, local (for New Yorkers), cold pressed olive oil based soaps are pretty epic too. All of the soaps are hand made, hand cut, and hand wrapped and are made of food grade oils and butters - making them almost good enough to eat.
I am a huge hand washer. Not only is hand washing economical, you avoid saturating your clothes and your body, with harsh chemicals from the dry cleaners.

Essential oils from lavender, citrus, and musk leave your wares smelling lovely, and plant-based enzymes remove odors, stains, and perspiration. Whether it is your favorite silk blouse or lace-lined intimates, leave it to The Laundress to keep your goods looking and smelling their best.
Who doesn't love a good misting now and again? Odacité mint and green tea mist is the perfect morning, midday, any time of day pick-me-up. This refreshing mist is 100% natural, composed of 97% organic ingredients, and contains no parabens or phtalates. This multipurpose mist is invigorating and refreshing and leaves a lingering energized glow. I love to use it midday as a refresher, as a post-workout purifier, or as an after washing toner. Added bonus - the green tea extract fights free radicals, proving that this potent and powerful plant has benefits for the inside and outside.
Puffy eyes have always been my dead giveaway of a meal a tad too salty or a night not well slept. Constantly in search for the perfect de-puffer, I have tried the gamut of creams priced high and low, natural and homeopathic, and multi-purpose cover-ups. Not one who likes to waste any time in the am reclining with cold tea bags or cucumber slices on my eyes, I rejoiced when I found Klorane soothing and relaxing patches with cornflower. Simply apply the cooling patches, when you need a little de-puffing action, go about your business for 20 minutes, and than remove. The patches are the perfect antidote for reducing inflammation without losing time responding to morning emails or whipping up your morning oats. Do you have any remedies that you utilize to trade up the puffs for bright and rested peepers?
