Essencia: Must-Haves and a Giveaway!
You know those days and weeks when you wish there were two of you? I'm having that kind of month, and it's a glorious thing because it means I'm busy doing what I love (designing Christmas cards), but I wish there were another one of me to write this post so that I could take the time to tell you how much I love this company: Essencia.
Here are a few of my favorites that will find their way into Christmas gifts (and gifts-to-self) this season:
Lavender Mint Shaving Syrup. Seriously. I'm not a big product girl (which is why you KNOW it's love when I dedicate an entire blog post to products), but this is one product every girl can use. And you know what? This product has made it into the "Gift Bags for the Stars" at the Academy and Grammy Awards! It's BIG-TIME!
Another body product you'll want to try...Rosemary Mint Body Polish.
A product I can't live without: Honey Mint Lip Balm. It's better than Burt's Bees or whatever you've got in your purse!
I'm addicted. It's literally in every drawer - desk, kitchen, bedside, bathroom...you name it! It's the perfect combination of silky and moisturizing...not at all sticky or waxy. Owner/co-founder Alison McMurtrey works really hard to perfect her products, and it shows in this little power-packed tube!
Moving on to a few household favorites: Lavender Linen Spray.
I'm not a big fan of linen sprays because most of them have so may artificial fragrances ("parfum" sounds desirable because it's a French word, but let's call a spade a spade...it's not the real deal!). This linen spray puts the rest to shame. Lavender is known for its calming benefits, so go ahead...mist it on your pillow each night, your sheets between washings, your children's pillows...you can even use it as an air freshener.
Speaking of air freshener (don't get me started on how I feel about most "air fresheners" on the market), this little product is Essencia's hidden jewel in my opinion:
Lavender Mint Oil with Aromotatic Light Bulb Ring, I was hooked. This is what you'll smell in my studio.
There are many more products I could list, but Christmas cards are calling, so I'll leave you with this: most of the products I mentioned are 25% off right now, and if you spend $40 and mention the code XMASSHIP, you'll get free shipping.
AND...if you leave a comment between now and December 11th about which of these products you'd most like to try (or a comment about any of the Essencia products), you'll be entered in the giveaway to win a little Essencia for yourself! Go for it!
