Maryann from Matthew’s Puzzle tried our Lavandin/Litsea Cubeba Bath Salts and our Bourbon Geranium Aromatherapy Soy Candles. She said that she was “…drawn to Hothouse Botanicals because of how they make their products. They are all made with pure natural essential oils – natural aromatherapy for the user! There are no synthetic fragrance or color, which it so important when following a biomedical protocol. Hothouse Botanicals contain NO Parabens, NO SLS, and are “dirty dozen free”; something we need to consider not only for our autistic children but for our own health and the health of the planet in general. Hothouse Botanicals is thinking globally, one person at a time. The products are also 100% Vegan friendly and cruelty-free.”
Maryann liked the Lavandin/Litsea Cubeba Bath Salts which have “… a delicate lavender lemon aroma that could help calm and sooth. I used it with the boys in their nighttime bath…the boys slept beautifully. Now I want to try it myself so I can detox and relax too.”
Maryann loves the fact that we use recycled glass containers for our soy candles. Regarding the Bourbon Geranium Soy Candle, she says that “…it has a soft rosy-minty scent that is perfect for the spring and summer. I could really see using it during an evening dinner party on your patio, the candle and the fireflies providing just the right lighting while your guests enjoy a glass of chilled white wine. It would set the mood quite nicely.”

Jessica from This Dangerous Life reviewed our Vanilla/Lime Whipped Sugar Scrub and our three Organic Perfumes. Jessica describes the Whipped Sugar Scrub as “HEAVEN. Our youngest has been home sick the past week, and let me tell you….this sugar scrub saved me! Every night I used it in the bath, after the baby wentto bed (for all of two fitful hours at a time!) and it was such a release. And my skin just loved it!” She says that our Organic Perfumes “…are just as amazing! I loved that they are solid because then I can put them wherever I want. I discovered that if I put them on my pressure points, then the scent would kind of rejuvenate itself during the day! It was awesome. My favorite was totally the licorice candy scent. I was hesitant to try this one, because licorice perfume?! Weird right? WRONG. It smelled so good, it made my kids hungry. I love licorice, so I loved faintly smelling it all through the day. There are two other scents too- Love’s Embrace, a floral scent with jasmine and spice, and also Seductress (hubba hubba) which had violet and bergamot. I loved these two also, but the Licorice Candy won me over.”

Gigi from BeautyXpose.com reviewed our Cocoa/Lime Hemp Lip Balms for her article, “Chocolate Craving: Lip-Licking Good Beauty Products.” She enjoyed the unique chocolate lime flavor of the lip balm and loved its effectiveness. “We automatically noticed the difference; it was as if our lips had been drenched in moisture. And unlike a lot of drug store options, the balm didn’t wear off after only a few minutes. Considering the quality is so much better than a generic balm, we love the fact that it is just as cheap at only $3.99.”
Karissa from PrissyGreen.com has reviewed our three organic perfumes: Licorice Candy, Love’s Embrace, and Seductress. Karissa explains that, “I really thought my favorite would be the Seductress, which I do in fact enjoy, but I was quite surprised that I love the Love’s Embrace! I am not usually a fan of florals but this is pieced together so nicely it is just tender and sweet. The Licorice Candy is also a nice change from the normal and if you are experiencing a low sex drive this might be a perfect match! They are so unique being solids but not being the overpriced solid perfumes at the retail shops, there are affordable and portable! So easy to throw in your bag and take on a trip, or take for refreshing at night!”

Our new organic solid perfumes are special because they are made with organic grape seed oil and pure essential oils. They are perfect for holiday gift giving at $15 each and are housed in 1/2 oz. aluminum tins with an organza pouch. Solid perfumes are perfect for traveling, since they do not spill and will easily fit inside a pocket or purse. The organic grape seed oil is skin nurturing and the scents last a long time.
- Licorice Candy: This perfume will help spice things up a bit when you are feeling that you would like to increase your seductiveness. Studies have shown that women are naturally turned on by the scent of black licorice.
- Love’s Embrace: A lovely floral scent with jasmine, geranium, peru balsam, and a hint of spice. Apply this perfume to your pulse points and you’re ready for a rendezvous in a magical garden with the one you love.
- Seductress: This is a gorgeous green Chypre scent with hints of oak moss, violet leaf, and bergamot. Reminiscent of stepping into a beautiful hidden forest glade where the light gently dances on your skin, Seductress will delight your senses.
