This week I'm obsessed with... Satya Organic The One Stick Multi-Use Balm!

Satya Organic The One Stick - 30ml - $29 - a fragrance-free, multi-use balm in an easy twist stick  that gently soothes and hydrates a multitude of skin issues including: eczema; dry and/or flaky skin; rough or bumpy patches; dry cuticles; chapped lips; flaky bows and eyelids; itching and/or redness due to dryness. It also makes a great after-care product for sun exposure; bug bites; tattoos; shaving and skin friction.
The signature five-ingredient formula uses only certified organic ingredients: calendula petals; cold-pressed sweet almond oil; beeswax; cold-pressed jojoba; and gluten-free colloidal oatmeal. And no steroids, parabens, gluten, fragrance or petochemicals.

This is the perfect time of year to have this in your purse or pocket - the change in weather means dry everything - from lips to heels - and in a pinch, is even great on split ends!

Great Gifting - Barefoot Venus Mustard Bath

Sometimes you can judge a book by it's cover - or at least your bath products by the very pretty packaging it comes in...

Barefoot Venus Mustard Bath - 480g - $22 - with a 100% all natural therapeutic formula containing mustard seed powder - increases circulation, opens pores, stimulates sweat glands and helps draw impurities from the skin; eucalyptus leaf oil - an excellent antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and decongestant; and chamomile flowers - used as a mild sedative, with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties - just run a hot bath, add the mustard bath, inhale and relax!

The idea of mustard bath was kind of strange to me and I was expecting to be bathing in something that smelled reminiscent of a bottle of French's but it was nothing like that! True the powder is definitely a mustard yellow colour that adds a yellow tinge to the bathwater but the scent is heavenly - and if you have sore muscles or stuffed sinuses they will especially thank you for this stuff!

Almost as good as what's inside is the container itself - so pretty you will want to prominently display it and gift it to every bathing beauty you know!

Also comes in a refill 1kg bag size for $31 and a 90g one use size perfect for travel for $7.
