April Showers

…bring May flowers. The indoor, clean-and-sudsy kind of shower just helps you smell like flowers and other sweet things.

  • Juicy pear and dewy florals fill the air when you lather up with this creamy French-milled soap bar. Magnolia Pear 8.8 oz soap bar by South of France.
  • Get refreshed and clean with Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash. Peppermint and eucalyptus wake up the senses and lighten the mind.
  • Close your eyes, and a shower becomes a wash in a luscious vanilla bean shake. Giovanni Cleanse Body Wash in Hazelnut Vanilla.
  • Homemade citrus-olive oil scrub: Mix several heaping teaspoons of coarse or regular sugar with 2 Tbsp olive oil and the zest of a grapefruit. Add several drops of a citrus essential oil (e.g. lemon, bergamot) to cover up the smell of olive. Chill in refrigerator before using as a body exfoliant.
  • In the evening, turn out the lights and shower by the dreamy glow of a candle. Surround yourself with steam and the aroma of fresh figs as the soft light dances on your glistening skin. Pacifica votive candle in Mediterranean Fig.

  1. That homemade olive oil scrub sounds heavenly! I just love making beauty products at home- Much better to use real ingredients than wonder where all those strange-sounding chemicals actually come from.

  2. Citrus scrub- brilliant! I love the smell of grapefruit and now a use for my grapefruit rind!
