Rubbing Out The Blues

There are few balms as therapeutic to the spirit as the scents that grow wild on a spring day. Clover and chamomile; lilacs, honeysuckle, jasmine and hyacinth; the litany of living fragrances climbs off the tongue like wandering wisteria. We know, instinctively, that the mood-enhancing power of a plant’s essential oils is best received through the portal of smell, but scent enthusiasts like Kelly Barlow, owner of Moody Girl Aromatherapy, understand that touch can play a vital role in the therapy process as well. Let’s face it, we’ve moved beyond the age of stress-relieving squeezable hackysack bags. Moody Girl is grown-up stuff: From Lemon Verbena to the bueno Mojito-Lime Spearmint (my favorite), these products create a sensory effect no less wondrous than the first time you placed a seashell to your ear as a child and swore you heard waves crashing.

When poet Luci Shaw describes the bouquet of her favorite neighborhood tree, she notes foremost its invigorating properties: Just now the buoyant scent of eucalyptus oil/ begins to lift the air to life/ and stings into my nose the need/ to breathe its healing in. Well, we’ve hand-tested these products, and can vouch for their splash effect. And lucky you, Kelly is also offering you the chance to test her original creations for yourself. The winner of this giveaway will receive the choice of any one Sugar Scrub, as well as any one Bath Taffy offered at Moody Girl. To enter, visit Moody Girl Aromatherapy, then come back here to tell us about your favorite product and scent offered. Wishing Willow subscribers receive a second entry, so remember to let us know in a second post that you subscribe. (If you don't have a Google account, just click “anonymous” to leave a post.) Contest ends 10/15/08. Good luck!

**We have a winner! Imanoptimisticbeauty who said "Oh my! My choice would be BATH TAFFY-Solid Bubble Bath-- Lavender Mint... what a great combination of scents!"***

For those who didn't win - Not to worry! Enjoy 10% off the product price from Moody Girl Aromatherapy. Be sure to mention Wishing Willow to get your discount. Discount expires 12/31.
