A couple of weekends ago my fabulous friend Anna of In Honor of Design invited me to tag along for a Mother's Day event that she was hosting at Anthropologie. Anna has a wonderful, customizable body butter recipe (see here!) and I brought some of my favorite oils and shared their benefits while the guests munched on amazing treats and created beautiful gifts for themselves and loved ones.
I brought lemon, lavender, peppermint, grapefruit and orange (Anna loves citrus :)) and helped the ladies create pairings or they could just use a single oil. Lemon, lavender and peppermint work together wonderfully as an "allergy trio." I have been using these oils all spring to support my respiratory system with incredible results. Grapefruit is fabulous for skin and specifically cellulite so I thought that was a fun one to bring, it pairs wonderfully with peppermint. Lavender alone is relaxing and soothing for the skin and can also be paired with a bright citrus. Orange works to stimulate creativity and boost your mood and smells really lovely with lavender. I LOVE being able to make my own body products. If you are interested in learning more about oils, you can click here or feel free to email me!
The entire morning was so lovely and Anna (along with the ladies at Anthro!) made every little detail gorgeous and special. So thankful to have friends that empower other women and make them feel great. Anna is so good at that. You will love her blog if you don't already read it.
Thank you again Anna and Anthropologie for having me! xo
