Eden. Bath & Body Review and *Giveaway* (4 Winners)!!!

by Gina on March 3, 2011

US Only / 18+ . Ends 3/30/11.

I am so excited to introduce you to a delicious new line of all natural bath and body products straight from the coast of Maine: eden. Bath & Body!

“eden. is a natural paradise for bath and body products.

You’ll find all manner of natural goodies here. Dead Sea Bath salts, luxurious hand creams, scent-sational body lotions, moisturizing lip balms, and more!

eden. was formed in Portland, Maine in 2007 by Elise Loschiavo, a transplant from PA by way of Boston. It began as a way to indulge friends and family in hand milled natural body care. After many years of requests and never-ending product formulation and reformulation, eden. was launched as a full service bath & body line.

eden. products are available at fine spas and retailers throughout Maine as well as online via Etsy.”

I had the opportunity to sample a selection from the entire range of products that eden. has to offer and I am still thoroughly enjoying them. When I first opened my package of goodies I was delighted by the indulgent aromas created by the luxurious essential oils, which make up these fine products. I was so excited that I immediately took out the first product:

Hand Milled Vanilla Mint all Natural Lip Balm — $3.50

“Moisturizes lips with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Apricot Kernel Oil. Contains jojoba oil infused with healing & anti-inflammatory Calendula flowers. Jojoba oil is rich in natural sun protection!”

I am a person who always has some form of lip balm on me at all times, especially in the winter. I can’t stand having dry lips. Trying the hand milled vanilla mint lip balm from eden. made me ditch the tube of petroleum based chapstick that is normally sitting in my pocket. The essential oils contained in this product were very soothing, especially the mint, which added a touch of refreshing rejuvenation; not to mention the aroma was lovely!

Citrus Harmony Body Lotion w/ Aloe and Shea Butter — $12.00

“A lightweight version of our hand cream for use all over the body as an everyday lotion to preserve skin’s softness. We use luxurious, easily absorbed apricot kernel oil, rich in essential fatty acids & Vitamins A + E, as well as healing & moisturizing Shea Butter.”

The citrus harmony body lotion was the next product that I sampled. I am a lover of all things citrus, particularly in lotions because these essential oils are known to energize and wake you up! I always apply lotion after showering in the morning, and I always need that extra kick in order to get myself going. The citrus harmony scent is probably my favorite out of everything I tried, although it was difficult to choose! There is something about the grapefruit, lemongrass, and sweet orange oils that really made me feel great! I also loved how the lotion was silky, yet it didn’t take forever to soak into my skin.

Dead Sea Bath Salts – Jasmine Vanilla — $13.00

“Rich with warm, floral, exotic Jasmine essential oil. Jasmine is an aphrodisiac widely believed to be anti-depressant and healing to dry skin. We just love the way it smells, especially when paired with yummy vanilla!”

Ahhhh bath salts. I stole an hour on Saturday, away from the baby and my to-do list, to fill my tub with the calming scent of the jasmine vanilla bath salts. I wish you could have smelled our master bath while the salts were gently dissolving in the warm bath water – I was in heaven! I could really feel the essential oils help ease my mind of the everyday stresses of life. This product is truly luxurious. I closed my eyes and was instantly transported to a spa-like atmosphere. Here is an interesting tidbit I learned about dead sea salts while checking out eden. on Etsy: “salt water bathing can stimulate circulation, hydrate the skin, increase moisture retention, detoxify & help heal dry, scaly, irritated skin. It can also reduce inflammation, relieve pain & soreness, and relax the muscles & joints.”

Shea Butter Healing Hand Cream — $15.00

“Our wildly popular hand cream comes in a 4oz jar and is suitable for daily use on dry, damaged skin. Keeps hands soft and smooth during our long, cold winters but not too heavy to use all year round! This product is fragrance-free for sensitive skin, but we are happy to add fragrance upon request.”

Finally, I sampled the impressive shea butter hand cream. This hand cream is truly amazing. My mother occasionally gets terrible splits and cracks in the skin of her fingers, during the winter, that sometimes get so bad that they begin to bleed! She gave this hand cream a try and the splits in her fingers were healed within 2 days. She has tried everything in the past from other brands of hand cream, liquid band-aids, and Neosporin; these would help for a couple of days, but then they would come back. The shea butter hand cream from eden. is the only product that has worked for her! How incredible is that!?

Buy it!

You may purchase each of products shown here at the eden. Etsy shop. The prices are extremely reasonable, especially when you consider that these products are made by hand from all natural ingredients and essential oils. There is a host other amazing fragrances that weren’t featured in my review as well, including:

Lavender Vanilla
Sandalwood Rose
Lavender Patchouli
Lavender Bergamot
Grapefruit Vanilla
Lavender Mint
Peppermint
Rosemary Mint

Fragrance Free varieties are also available!

You may also contact eden. regarding creating a custom item, just for you!
