Ceridwen’s Cauldron – Lush Bath Melt

Ceridwen's CauldrenMy lush haul (or at least what qualifies in my books as a haul) included a Ceridwen’s Cauldren. I was partly persuaded by a video I saw by another blogger (and now I can’t remember who it was… oops), but the name of the bath melt was the final nail in the coffin.

It makes me think of the country side where a bunch of hippies live off the land with a fire and a brewing pot … and I won’t lie… I want to be there. awkies

A Cauldron is a big metal pot used for cooking and here’s what tickles my “I-see-what-you-did-there” fancy. The bath melt looks like this: Ceridwen's Cauldron in hand

Sort of pot looking, right? And if you’re relaxing in the tub, it’s almost like a big pot – cooking away the stress.

A bath melt is a slow releasing bath oil and Ceridwen’s Cauldron is a lovely combination of oats, soothing lavender and rich oils. Every bath melt is wrapped like a gift in muslin cloth and dipped in wild flowers … feeling like a hippy yet?

As the butters melt, you’ll feel your skin softening and the stresses of the day leaving your body while the wild flowers and lavender create a feast for the senses. The oats make the water milky and you’d be excused for demanding the execution of your sister, because, yes, you WILL feel like Cleopatra.

The only downside to this is the one time use. But it is a GREAT once a month or once a week (if you can afford it) spoil and it is something that you must try. If you’d like to buy yours, click here.

Lush Ballistic – Twilight

In light of recent and ongoing teaser tweets and Instagrams by one Naeemah Ajam, aka The Jam Jar (general treat maker and lover of all things pink and beautiful) and Whimsy girl – Laura, I geared myself up last month for a Lush expedition. I say “geared myself up” because a Lush treat for myself doesn’t end in me carting home less than 3 items and in addition to my haul, Ginger expects a “Sex bomb” Ballistic, at the very least as well. *shakes head and shrugs shoulders* he thinks it makes him… sexy or whatever.

A little while ago, I got an introduction email from Beverley at Be Cause Integrated Communications telling me all about an amazing brand called Wema Bodycare.

I wasted no time and immediately checked out the website and I fell in love with 2 products in particular which I’m going to buy as soon as my current body treats are finished 🙂 The Geranium Rose Whipped mousse which retails for R150 and the Orange Body Scrub which retails for R140 – they both look absolutely divine!

They are pretty reasonably priced, cruelty free and 100% natural which is music to my ears!

For more information on the products and on the company, check out their website. You can also follow them on Twitter and like their Facebook page!

If you’ve tried their products before, I would love to know what you think and what you recommend.

Tub Teas

Tub TeaI still bath in Rooibos tea from time to time. I draw a hot bath, drop 4 teabags in the tub and drizzle in some honey and sometimes I add a little milk too.

These lovely tea bags come in Milk & Honey, Rose & Cinnamon, Rooibos, Hibiscus & Vanilla, Lavender & Time and Berry infusion.
