How do you usually spend your Sundays? Is there any specific scenario you follow? Most of the time, I like to spend Sunday evenings at home by dedicating a few hours for a portion of high quality “ME time” – hot bath, scented candle, occasional glass of mulled wine (I am all into Fall!) and good ol’, truly pampering and re-connecting my body and soul skincare ritual. Obviously, I enjoy taking the time to discover new green & clean companies and incorporating the best of their carefully crafted goods into my sacred self-care routine. Today I am here to share with you my recent discovery, that filled my apartment with amazing aroma of lavender, lemongrass and peppermint, and made my skin unconditionally happy.
If you haven’t heard of Whispering Willow yet, this is your chance to fall in love with them! If you did, I am sure you can understand my affection to their creations. Whispering Willow is a family owned company (we hear ‘ya, cheers!) that make it possible for the Nature’s best to happen in your bathrooms – handcrafted soaps, bath & body products that are made with love, sustainable attitude and responsibility to deliver the best (by leaving artificial scents, chemicals, colors and other nasty stuff outside of it).
Let’s take a walk through some of the products I loved from their well-curated selection of natural beauty products, and … wait for it … there’s a giveaway awaiting for y’all at the end of this story!
At Whispering Willow soaps are having a moment – a moment of rich formulas, pure handcraft and remarkable visual appearance. Because we all know that besides foamy happiness in the shower, these little guys also make great, aromatic presents for friends and family! Just look at these wrapped in linen large soap bars ($10) – infused with essential oils of Peppermint/Clove, Lemongrass and Lavender. My current favorite is Lemongrass, I love citrus scents that bring energies back in no time and leave the skin with a delightful aroma for the whole day long. I am going to keep the Peppermint one for colder, wintery days, that would make a perfect match!
Let’s admit it – having a liquid soap on the sink sometimes is way more convenient! I am a clean hands control freak. Like, last stage. I have to soap my hands every time I’ve finished washing the dishes, or wiped a kitchen counter, or touched a little dusty spot. Not to mention everything else. And I deeply appreciate liquid soap that is natural, and not drying out my skin into horrible, itchy conditions. How happy I was to discover Whispering Willow Natural Hand Soap ($11) – also, in Lemongrass scent (among 3 other scents – Lavender, Peppermint and Tea Trea)! Now I am fully equipped for anything that household is going to throw my away. But actually, another good thing is – refills are also available, even in a bulk size!
You guys are familiar with my love to body oils, aren’t you? Natural Body Oil ($20) that I’ve discovered at Whispering Willow definitely falls under a “share with a friend” category! Universal ingredients list (organic Sunflower oil, Avocado oil, Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil + lavender essential oil), melting and highly nourishing texture and affordable price. Yes, a bottle like this (4.5oz) with a nicely working pump (preventing you from overdoing / wasting product) would last something like a month, or even more if you don’t use it every other day like I do. Winter is coming, is your beauty shelf ready?
Speaking of Sunday relaxation and gift ideas 2-in-1 : Whispering Willow got me so curious about their Organic Lavender and Flax Seed Neck Pillow ($30). I repeat. Neck Pillow, my 24/7 typing, buttons clicking, monitor staring, images shooting friends! I’ll probably start by stating the obvious : it smells heavenly! There’re two ways of wonderful relaxation with this pillow : hot (1 minute in a microwave will do) or cold (spritzed with water and chilled in a freezer for a while) as a compress. Both of these ways are super relaxing, soothing and so powerful in wiping away long day’s stress. There’s nothing criminal in taking a day off everything, and following your SPA ritual by a power nap with this pillow on your shoulders, right?!
