Summer is the time for herby, fresh scents and tropical fragrances like my favorite, coconut. I love trying new bath products in the summertime — it really seems to set the mood for a relaxing season. Try a new product and scent this summer; there are some great suggestions below.
Buddha Nose Bohdi Sugar Scrub ($28.00 USD) — contains organic and wild crafted essential oils of cedarwood, frankincense, ho wood and juniper berry for a sultry scrub. It also boasts organic sugar, certified organic potassium cocoate, organic tapioca starch, vegetable glycerin, and citric acid powder to give natural exfoliation. To use, scoop desired amount into hand and moisten with warm water until foamy and scrub face and body, as the sugar melts and washes away. I love that this is good for the face in body. It is great in the shower as a quick scrub all over to start the day. And exfoliating is so important when self tanning! Visit www.buddhanose.com for information on this product and to purchase it.
