Get in the Spirit with Bath and Body Works Holiday Collection

I love how seasonal sets can really get you in the mood for whatever time of year it is. I like wearing bright florals in the spring, beachy scents and anything with lime in the summer, spicier scents in the fall and holiday scents in the winter.

Bath and Body works always has a nice holiday bath collection this time of year. The three frangrances they are featuring are Twisted Peppermint, Vanilla Bean Noel and Winter Candy Apple. The notes are:

Twisted Peppermint:  Top Note: Sweet Peppermint, Mid Notes: Mint, White Sugar; Base Notes: Vanilla, Musk, and Balsam

Vanilla Bean Noel:  Top Notes: Caramel, Burnt Sugar; Mid Note: Vanilla; Base Notes: Tonka Bean and Musk

Winter Candy Apple:  Top Notes: Candy Apple, Orange Zest; Mid Notes: Maple, Cinnamon, Neroli, Rose; Base Notes: Bamboo, Sandalwood, Fresh Musk, Oak Moss and Patchouli

The fragrances come in a great range of products including body scrub, a shimmer scent roll-on, hand soap, room spray, a candle and lotions. Using one scent such as the Winter Candy Apple in room spray, candles and hand wash can make your house smell very festive.

I recommend checking out these products as gifts for friends and family or as a treat for yourself!

Oh Happy Stress Relief — Bath and Body Works Aromotherapy Line Can Help

… and happy sleep plus energy when you need it! I really enjoy the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy line because the fragrances are soothing and complex at the same time.

My favorite so far is the Lavender Chamomile scent, especially the pillow mist ($10.00 US). I spray this on my pillow every night and let it dry. Then when it’s time to go to sleep, the soft fragrance helps so much. And since it’s had some time to dry, it is not overpowering.

I also like the new Warm Milk & Honey scent. This fragrance includes notes of cinnamon and cloves, and is very comforting. Pour the Luxe Bath ($16.50 US) in your bath water and breathe it in. This will surely relax you!

I have also been using the Mandarin Lime Energy hand wash ($6.00 US). It is quite an invigorating scent. The new Orange Ginger is also fun, and has a kick to it from the ginger. It would be nice to use the lotion and shower gel right before a night out.      

Another thing I like about these products is the packaging. The bottles have an old-time apothecary feel to them. The pillow mist actually comes in a blue glass bottle, which gives it a substantial feel.

I highly recommend these products because of the wonderful scents and the benefits they bring to your mood. As a busy mom, I need lots of help!
