Years ago, when I was a retail buyer for an amazing home and gift store, I was very into a brand called Olivina Napa Valley. The line (no longer sold) featured many olive based fragrances in lotions, soaps and body butters. I thought that nothing could ever replace their olive scent. That is, until I found Latika’s Olive Grove scent. It really is even better than the Olivina brand I adored so much. I think the sandalwood and patchouli notes are a perfect addition to the olive base. The cream featured in the September box is Latika’s 4oz size, but if you are now as obsessed as I am you can purchase the 16oz size on their site.
Because I love Olive Grove so much, I thought about including the bath bomb of the same scent in the box. But, then you would have missed out on another equally fabulous aroma of Rosemary & Mint! This Rosemary Mint bomb fizzes for what seems like forever and turns the water mint green. The herby, earthy rosemary and the bright, zingy mint are a relaxing yet invigorating combination. Latika bath bombs are… well… THE BOMB because they perfume and give great color to the bath but they don’t leave a stain in the tub.
