Love is here!

Just in time for Valentine's day my new bath kit Love: for all the types of love in our lives. It is scented with rose, and jasmine, to bring courage and love into your life.

The love ritual begins with a chocolate face mask with cocoa powder, buttermilk and china clay, for their antioxidant, and skin cleaning properties. All these ingredients in powdered form that you blend right before you apply, to retain freshness. After the mask has been applied there is a milk bath that even Cleopatra would have loved. It has ground rose buds and the scent of rose and jasmine to soothe and soften you into a state of love. After the bath if you so choose there is a shower gel scented with the same rose and jasmine, but if you wish you can carry right on to the sugar scrub. It is turned a light shade of pink thanks to the exfoliating jojoba beads and the white sugar. With a touch of castile soap, and vegetable glycerin it is only lightly moisturising so you are ready for the last step... the body butter. A perfect blend of Shea and Olive butters melt with the warmth of your skin. Grapeseed oil adds to the trinity of moisturisers and the floral notes of rose and jasmine leave you loving yourself all day long.
We all must love our selves to bring love into our life, with this kit enjoy an hour or two celebrating you.

Victorian Bath Robes

I was thinking back today about a friend of mine who once had a bath problem. She like many was renting and the bath tub was less than stellar. I then was reminded of all the period movies I love to watch and how many times in the Victorian days or earlier people didn't take baths completely naked. Hard to believe that to cleanse your body you had to stay dressed, but when you think about no central heat, those with the privilege of a private bath tub having servants, and other such concerns it makes sense.

So my suggestion to my friend lay down a towel or old sheet (twin works best) to lay on in the tub. When you are done ring it out and hang it to dry in your tub. If you want to get really fancy you could create yourself a bathing robe (think long lightweight cotton nightgown). My thought is not only will it keep you from feeling icky putting your bare bum on the tub, but also use the fabric as an all over washcloth.

Just some ideas from someone who has to clean the bath tub before every bath (just a little bit obsessive compulsive). I used to keep a wash cloth to sit on when I had an old tub with the stick on no skid stickers, they used to creep me out.
Well just one of my ramblings while driving home.

This is Love not Lust

Well it is taking more time than I would like to get my new Love products just right. So far I do have the scent down and the sugar scrub, which looks a lovely shade of pink thanks to the jojoba beads in it. I am rethinking the moisturizing portion of the kit, should it be a lotion, body butter or body butter bar? So many choices and so little time.

I have the feeling I need to get these recipes done before the little one begins walking (which looks like it may be soon). I will have photos soon but have to wait for the light, which may have take place this weekend since I am at the day job during the week.

While I work hard for this next line why don't you check out my Ritual-Bath merchandise at

If you are in the Central Florida area check out the great store Cottage Industry Co-Op on Edgewater drive, in the same location as Infusion tea. They have some amazing work from local crafters and artisans for sale, and you can get great tea too.

Bright Blessings,

Love in the air

Well I have exciting news, Love is in the air.

Not just the emotion but the next Ritual Bath kit called love. I am still in the testing faze working out all the ingredients and scents, but it is coming along very well. Or am I just euphoric because of the smells.

Love is a bath kit designed to remind us that we have to love ourselves to bring more love into our life. We are all uniquely beautiful and these products with fragrances of rose, jasmine and chocolate, remind us that we are all lovable.

Keep checking back for the new products and new pictures of some of the new packaging.

Blessings from the tub,

Happy New Year!

Well here is 2008, looking back on 2007 it has been a great year full of changes. We added to our family in glorious ways. The little one arrived just after the beginning of 07 and has been growing like a weed ever since (though I am told that is what they do). I found a cat at work, he helps fill the void of my last cat who also found me at work. I began my life long dream of starting my own business.

This year brought a lot to be thankful for, and many lessons learned. Like you cannot fake being calm to a baby, they pick it up like a thermometer. I also learned to ask for help and not be embarrassed about it (though I must say I am still working on that lesson). 2007 has been a great year full of challenges and blessings, I am thankful for it all.

For this coming year 2008 I wish for continued success for my family and friends. Plant, tend, and grow for all is possible with a little work, and a little dirt under the nails.

Tomatoes out of the "yarden" also started in 07'.
