Virga Botanicals and that they have such an array of products that will leave you astounded at some of them as much as I am.
I really wasn't sure what I was looking for as I was just searching around looking for something new to talk about. I have been talking so much about hair products and facial products I wanted to find something just a little different but something that tied in with the Earth Day because April is the month of Earth Day on the 22nd. I had so many companies respond yes to my request I soon realized I did not have enough events to put everyone in so I had to start doing single reviews/giveaways. What I loved most about Virga Botanicals that caught my eye immediately was the Lavender and Cedar Bug Spray. We have so many gnat and mosquitos down here in Georgia it is unreal! I can go outside and in less than 30 minutes come back in with about 25 bites all over my legs, arms, even my back and face.
Here is what the founder said about this wonderful concoction:
I created this years ago when I was backpacking through the Middle East, and terribly worried about malaria... I sprayed it on my pillow and hair every night, and got the attention of not one single mosquito during my entire six weeks of wandering - not one bite! Nowadays I use it all the time in the summer, on my kids, on our linens... and we continue to be unpopular with the little buggers. It works best and lasts longest if you spray your clothes and hair with it, and your bed linens at night.
In Chinese herbology, cucumber is a healing food known for its cooling properties. Western herbal tradition holds that it is anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing as well. And as for the rose, I did not know that it also is a Chinese herb and when I heard the story, I was fascinated: Beloved of the Western herbalists as well, it has long had a reputation as a skin beauty-enhancer, and is that any surprise, really? Soothing and nourishing, lightly hydrating according to tradition, and supremely gentle on delicate skin.
I am finding out so much thru Virga Botanicals about Roses! I never would have known all the facts that I have found out about Roses like for instance this one: The Chinese call it mei gua and use it for its qi-tonifying, nourishing and healing properties. I just love the smell! I have used just a teeny tiny amount on my face as a scrub and it is wonderful!
