Petunia Essentials Review & Giveaway **Closed**

I have another wonderful organic/natural company to tell you about and since this is Earth Month and Earth Day is officially on the 22nd I thought I better get myself in gear before everything passes me by. This great company is called Petunia Essentials and boy do they have some fantastic products to talk to you about. This is what I was sent to review:

1. Sandalwood Body Spray
2. Pear and Redwood Bath Salts
3. Vanilla & Honey Sugar Scrub
4. Peaches & Cream Sugar Scrub
5. Brown Sugar & Fig Body Butter

Let's see, where to start. We'll start with the Sandalwood Body Spray because it had such an intoxicating smell! They have so many scents to choose from that it would be hard to choose just one: brown sugar & fig, pear & redwood, vanilla & chamomile, lavender, cedarwood & amber and of course the Sandalwood! Did I not tell you it would be hard? You can use these body sprays in two different ways: Use as a natural body spray instead of perfume for a great scent all day. Or use them after a bath or shower as a body splash. Either way, you will smell fresh & clean and I would take that any day over a strong perfume!

Next up is the It doesn't take much to use in a bath so don't overdue it the first couple of times until you have figured out which amount works the best for you.

There are many more scents of these than there are of the scrubs so I won't be able to mention all of them but I can tell you that they will rock your boat! I am a huge fan of bath salts and they way they make the body feel or (rather my feet, since my bladder condition I can no longer take baths) but I can still soak my feet. The Rose one and the Lavender one sounds like they would have been right up my alley! But if you like fruity smells they have Apricot and Chamomile and Vanilla and Chamomile among many others!

I have loved Brown Sugar & Fig ever since Bath & Body Works brought it out and then mysteriously took it away! I am so very glad that I found a new Brown Sugar and Fig Body Butter! I have to tell you that what they put into their body butters is amazing: Our all natural butters include olive, jojoba, apricot and avocado oils with nourishing shea butter to create one of the most luxurious body butters.

Again, there are so many wonderful scents to try including my favorite, lavender, vanilla & chamomile, pear & cedarwood, sandalwood, cedarwood & amber along with the brown sugar & fig!

Then, lastly I tried the body scrubs, which are always my favorites because not only do they exfoliate the dry skin that I have but they leave behind a nice and shiny glow and the smell is almost too much! What a wonderful invention in my opinion of the sugar scrubs! I got to try the Peaches and Cream one on my feet and legs one night and I could still smell the scent the next night! It was so luxurious and wonderful. I felt almost like I was in a spa but of course I wasn't or I probably would have know what else to do to make my skin look even better. But, I will take what I did get because it was a huge improvement!

I just looked and they had a Pina Colada one that I bet would have been very interesting! Of course, they had the Lavender, Vanilla & Honey and they even have a Chocolate Sugar Scrub! Wow, I bet that would have been something to try! Can you just hear the men saying, yes, yes get that one!

Now, I did not get to try any of their soaps but they looked so good I thought I would throw them in so that you can see that they have a broad range of bath and body products for you to experience. I also found out that they have hand soaps and body washes so there is a little bit of everything for you and your family depending on what their skin needs are. And they can also make gift packages of several products into one so if you want to get someone something special, that is also a possibility!

Here is what I found out About the Owner:

I started this company out of my desire to produce quality bath and body products without worrying about whether they contain harsh or harmful ingredients. I love bath products – probably more than most! I can think of only a few things better than a relaxing bath or steaming hot shower with a great smelling gel. I love the smoothness of my skin after using Shea butter. I can’t get enough of my skin after applying a great scrub. There is just something about great bath and body products that can brighten my day! And the compliments on my skin are always great to hear!

But my love affair with bath products almost came to a terrible end. While in law school, I developed nagging nasal allergies. It was horrible. All of a sudden, stopping by my favorite bath product stores became a pain. I would leave with my bag of goodies sniffing and rubbing my eyes. It didn’t take long to realize that my favorite bath products were aggravating my allergies. That was the start of my quest to find products that had the same quality feel as the expensive brands but without the harsh ingredients.

It has taken a few years, but I have come up with a group of products that I believe in. My background isn’t related to chemistry at all! Before starting this company, I worked as an intellectual property attorney. My degrees are in mathematics and industrial engineering. I couldn’t have dreamed this company for myself if I tried! It has taken years of research, testing and development for me to build this line of products. I thoughtfully developed these recipes with the hardest critic in mind – myself! It has truly been a labor of love and I believe in the quality of our products.

I am just so happy that you have chosen to shop with us. I hope you enjoy the products as much as I’ve enjoyed making them!
