Happy Earth Day! We love that we are a green company and we try to use as little packaging as possible, so there is less to throw away. Our packing peanuts are made from cornstarch, which dissolve in water. Sustainable U.S. grown soy wax is incorporated into our soy candles. We use recyclable packaging on all of our bath and body products and use recycled containers for our soy candles. In the near future, we plan on changing all of our PET recyclable containers to post-consumer recycled PET containers.

We are back from our marathon three day weekend at the Festival of the Arts and it was a great success! Our testing station for our body butters and organic solid perfumes drew in crowds of people. We received lots of comments from people on how our body butters deeply moisturized their skin and how long the aromatherapy scents lasted. We had several return customers who tried our body butter early in the day and then came back in the afternoon to purchase (after several hand washings!). Bergamot/Ylang Ylang (our spicy orange floral aroma) was a surprise hit with customers and one of our top sellers for the weekend. Vanilla/Lime was touted as an “ice cream” or “key lime pie” scent and many people thought it smelled good enough to eat!

Christina Clark, a writer from Green Daily, posted a review of our Fizzy Foaming Bath last week. Green Daily’s website covers all things eco-friendly. Christina says that, “Hothouse Botanicals put the fun of a fizzy bath bomb in a powder form. You can add as much as you like to your bath to fizz to your personal preference. And while the products smell wonderful and work as expected, the extra nice part are all the natural ingredients…. And did I mention how good they smell? The Vanilla Lime combo is just amazing. The lime is just invigorating. And the Bourbon Geranium is a nice, spicy rose scent. The Lavandin Litsea is a lavender and lemon scent that is both relaxing and fun at the same time.”

Lime trees are native to sub-tropical and tropical regions of the world. Lime essential oil for use in cosmetics and perfumes is obtained from the peel of the lime fruit. In our Vanilla/Lime products we use a lime essential oil that is cold expressed (cold-pressed) in Central America. Cold expressing yields a pale yellow liquid that captures the true sweetly fresh aroma of the lime.
Lime essential oil is antiseptic, bactericidal, restorative, tonic, and antiviral. The essential oil of lime can help alleviate acne, asthma, chilblains, colds, dull skin, and varicose veins. The aroma of lime essential oil is uplifting, refreshing, and brings clarity of thought and concentration to the mind.
