Melting Hearts One Jewelry Candle At A Time - Lagniappe Candle Co. Review Pt. 1

Posted by Jessica Keeton at 5/28/2014 09:26:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Lagniappe is defined as something given as a bonus or extra gift. After my experience with Lagniappe Candle Company, I had realized this definition was not only the perfect name for to describe their products, but more importantly, it fit the amazing people behind this company. Lagniappe Candle Company is a business that not only makes it easy to come back to because of the quality of their candles, but because of the service you receive. When a company's fan base grows, sometimes it's personalized feel can go down, but Lagniappe Candle Company, growing more and more popular by the day, made my experience memorable and one that deserved to be recognized and shown off.. 
Taylor Bice turned her love of candles with jewelry into a full time job and now runs a company that offers candles that contain a piece of jewelry with a retail value of $40 – up to 1,000 dollars. So how did Lagniappe Candle Company come about?

Lagniappe Candle Company

It's not everyday that you find out a 15 year old (now 16) owns their own company, so I was instantly intrigued to learn more about who Taylor was and why she started a candle company. Taylor wanted to turn her love of candles that offered jewelry into a full time job, but it took more than pouring candles and shipping them to get there. Taylor made a business plan and presented it to a few clients at an investment firm she worked part-time at. Experiencing Taylor's candles first-hand, these investors made the right decision! 

Taylor hand selects each jewelry piece and if it isn't something she wouldn't wear herself, she'd never put it in a candle for someone else. Taylor makes every candle, from scent selection to pouring to the custom labels. How does Taylor decide what scents to offer? Some scents are randomly selected and others are inspired by who she is, like New Boots Y'all. That's just a part of Taylor's personality! 

As a teenager, Taylor has not only impressed me with her company, but her character as well. Taylor donates the entire amount of sales from every Home Sweet Home candle sold to send care packages to deployed military and is involved with Wounded Warrior Projects. She's not your average teenager. We've all been teenagers at one point in our lives and the last people we wanted to listen to were our parents. Taylor, on the other hand, knows when to ask mom for help. Taylor's mother, Laurie Bice, takes care of all the shipping and promoting of Lagniappe Candle Company. I've had the pleasure of speaking with Laurie on several occasions and she instantly makes you feel like you've been friends for years. 

Besides living and working together, this dynamic duo technically goes to school together, as Taylor is home schooled by her mother, Laurie. But for this mother/daughter team, being together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week has only brought them closer, making them best friends and it comes through in Lagniappe's candles! The care and attention I received was more than impressive, but more importantly, this family run company treats you like family, and that's more than enough for me.  

What Lagniappe Candle Company Offers

Lagniappe Candle Company offers you two options when you purchase a candle. For $24.99, you'll receive a 21oz. candle, with your choice of scent and a random piece of jewelry including a ring, necklace, or bracelet inside. For $38.99, you'll receive a 21oz. candle with your choice of scent and a guaranteed genuine jewelery piece, including a ring, necklace or bracelet, with a retail value of $40 or more!  Each piece of jewelry in every candle is carefully wrapped in a small plastic bag, then wrapped in foil to ensure it's protected.  Every candle you receive is extremely fragrant and with so many great scents to choose from, the hardest choice you'll have to make is which scent you want to try first.

 Candles can be custom made to your specific needs. Whether you're looking to purchase one for yourself, the special man in your life or even your children, Lagniappe Candle Company can create a customized candle, perfect for anyone in your life. Custom orders can also be done for bridal showers, baby showers, bridesmaid's gifts and more. There are no extra charges for baby names, born on dates, names of the happy couple and more.

Lagniappe Candle Company also offers "man candles" for that special guy in your life. Whether it's your boyfriend, husband, son, brother, father, nephew or even your coworker, you're sure to find a scent that they'll love. Masculine candle scents are becoming more and more popular everyday, so why not surprise him with something he already knows and loves like the Cool Water cologne scent, Polo cologne scent, fresh cut grass scent, camouflage scent, or cedar scent. Plus, these candles come in colors that he'll love like blues, greens, and tans. Each candle has "a little something extra" in it, so not only will he get a scent he loves, but a surprise too. 

Miniappe Candles
(My name for kid candles)

Lagniappe Candle Company also offers wax tarts with either random jewelry or genuine jewelry! Your Choice!!! They offer two choices with their scented wax tarts. For $16.99 you'll receive a 6oz. wax tart with random jewelry and you'll have a 1 in 40 chance of receiving a genuine piece of jewelry. For $26.99 you'll receive a 6oz. wax tart with a genuine piece of jewelry inside, with a value of anywhere from $50 to $1,000!

Plus, there's plenty of kids' products that will have your kids giggling in the bath tub! Below, you'll find a few products I reviewed and where to purchase them.

This fun bubble bath will have kids wishing it was summer all year round. Kids will love bath time when they know the tub will be filled with bubbles and the yummy scent of snow cones! Combine Navy Brat bubble bath with fun kids' soaps from The Lady Sailor and 

Sailor's Catch A.K.A. Anchors Aweigh Soap Bar
*Scent: Fresh ozony marine notes blended with sea salt, orange and rose!
A must-have for kids! These adorable 4oz. soap bars come with a surprise inside - Sailor's Catch, a fish! You can choose from a green, orange, purple or blue fish to have put inside. Bath time will no longer be a battle for kids, instead, they'll be racing to use their new soap, so they can get down to their surprise! Plus, both parents and kids will love this fun, kid-friendly scent. Be warned mom and dad, your kids will know if you used their soap......trust me I know. (Why can't I have a prize too?)

Ladybug Love Specialty Soap
*Scent: Raspberries
This adorable ladybug-shaped specialty soap is perfect for both adults and kids! The Lady Sailor may have taken the look of a ladybug into account when creating this soap, but certainly not it's size! You'll receive a generous 6oz. of specialty soap in the scent of your choice and you won't be disappointed. I absolutely love the mouth-watering raspberry scent that this soap exudes and it's a scent that kids love too. The cute shape makes bath time fun for the kids and with 6oz., it won't be disappearing anytime soon!

Ladybug Sweets Sugar Scrub Cubes
*Scent: Raspberry Cream Cupcake
These are a must-have, must-have, must-have for bath time! I've always been a fan of sugar scrub, but have never tried it in the form of cubes. Now that I have, I'm a fan for life. Besides being amazing for your skin, the scent was to die for. Raspberry cream cupcake in the bath or shower? One of the many reasons I love The Lady Sailor is they let you take dessert in the shower!!!! Mixed with a little water, these sugar scrub cubes break apart and exfoliate your skin, leaving it shockingly smooth and deliciously scented. Plus, I love that just one cube can exfoliate your entire body! These single use sugar scrub cubes are perfect for home or on-the-go. A must-have for great smelling and soft skin.

The chamomile buds alone, that come mixed in with these bath salts is enough to make me want to have these in every single bath I take, and that's besides all the other benefits you get with these.These bath salts awaken your senses and bring a hot bath to a whole new level with an aroma that begs to be used. The thought process gone into every scent choice to make Clear Day for Sailing shows the second you take the top off of the container. You'll receive an 8oz. container filled with the perfect end to a long day!

Skye Line Products:
The most popular and discontinued Bath & Body Works Scents

Black Amethyst Lotion Bars
*Scent: Aquatic top notes with Italian bergamot, rare camellias, and lime, followed by notes of sandalwood and vetiver.
The Lady Sailor nailed it with both the scent and the product when it comes to lotion bars. I'm someone who uses lotion multiple times a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year so when I saw these were in the package that arrived I was very excited. This was my first time using a lotion bar so I didn't know what to expect, but I was instantly impressed. I could not believe how well they hydrated my hands, arms, legs, etc. and the scent, oh the scent. I only need to use these once a day to keep my hands feeling smooth and hydrated, but the amazing scent has me using them much more than I need to. I would recommend these bars in this exact scent to everyone, whether you've tried lotion bars before or not. 

Pink Chiffon Body Spray
*Scent: Light floral, wild berries blended with sweet vanilla, coconut and hints of sandalwood.
As the must-have scent for the summer, this pink chiffon body spray will have you falling in love with it every time you spray it on. This beautifully scented body spray instantly brightens up your day with it's light feminine and floral scent, and always leaves a smile on your face. It has become my go-to body spray everyday and doesn't have that strong perfume scent that some sprays can offer. 

The Captain's Bar Tab Bath Set
This must-have bath set brings the party to you and makes shower and bath time fun again. Use individually or all together to create a water party that brings your favorite mixed drinks together!

The Champagne Body Spray
*Scent: A vanilla base w/ top notes of lime and orange, with hints of rum! Bubbly & Effervescent!
Forget waiting for a special occasion to bring the bubbly out, celebrate everyday with a few spritzes of this delicious body spray! This is a perfect scent to wear whether it's day or night. This scented body spray is perfect to feel energized and ready to take on the day ahead or get you in the mood to celebrate a well-deserved night out on the town for girl's night! A perfect year-round scent.

The Martini Bath Salts

*Scent:Top notes of tangy lemon zests, orange and carbonation followed by middle notes of spicy bergamot, mint and lavender, sitting on a base note of rosewood.

A little goes a long way! These delicious drink-scented bath salts a perfect end to a long day. Taking the cap off the container, I filled it about half way and in less than a minute, had a hot bath that not only smelled delicious, but felt amazing. You'll feel ultimate relaxation and will be left with great smelling skin. A perfect stress reliever, these martini bath salts are a must-have if you love aromatherapy products.

The Cocktail Bubble Bath
*Scent: Top notes of juicy orange, lemon and maraschino cherries, followed by tangy pineapple, acai berry, and sea spray, with base notes of sweet coconut, vanilla rum, and fresh ozonic notes.
Who doesn't love a good old fashioned bubble bath? The Lady Sailor combines our love of  bubbles, and cocktails to make a delicious-scented bath, bubble-flowing bath that's just too good to ignore. Forget that boring old bubble bath that you find at stores and take bath time up a notch with a bubble formula for the modern day woman. Keep the bubbles flowing and the fun time going with The Cocktail Bubble Bath from The Lady Sailor!

The Mojito Soap
*Scent: Strong top notes of juicy lime and sugar, balanced with mint leaves and rum!
Put a fresh spin on shower and bath time with mojito-flavored specialty soap from The Lady Sailor.

This is a must-have scent for the summer and is a perfect way to start and end your day. 

The Margarita Bath Oil
*Scent: Fresh peaches combined with sparkling notes of lime, lemon and orange rinds and a hint of salt.
The ultimate way to moisturize and nourish your skin, The Lady Sailor's The Margarita Bath Oil is one drink my skin just have to have when I'm taking a hot bath. The delicious citrus scents add a burst of energy not only to the bath, but to your skin as well. Your skin will feel amazingly soft and silky. This is one margarita, you'll want to order over and over again....for bath time of course!

The Lady Sailor Review Part 1: Q & A With The Lucky Lady Behind This Bubbly Bath And Body Business

Posted by Jessica Keeton at 5/26/2014 10:02:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Continuing with The Pay It Forward series, I’m honored to share this next small business with you, not only because of the great products they put out, but because the friendship I now have with a woman that I look up to both personally and professionally. I’ve witnessed this next small business build from the ground up, watching an idea, turn into a flourishing bath and body company, in what is now known as The Lady Sailor!!!

The Lady Sailor offers bath and body products, designed not only to make you smell great, but feel great too. Soaps, bath salts, sugar scrubs, bath oils, lotion bars, bubble bath, body sprays, bath bombs, suntan lotions! You name it, The Lady Sailor’s got it and not just for adults, but for kids too! Plus, if you’re already a fan of The Lady Sailor on Facebook, then you already know that new bath and body products are always coming out in what seems like a weekly pattern.

How I Met The Owner of The Lady Sailor!
Before I tell you who the owner is, let me tell you how I met her. I had no idea about the soap and wax world that was out there just waiting to be discovered. My first experience with a piece of this world was with Diamond Candles. Being uneducated at this point, I had assumed this was the only company that was doing something like this – putting jewelry in candles. I had done a quick google search on jewelry candle giveaways and came across the blog I Love Candles: Jewelry Candle Reveals, Reviews & Giveaways! This was the day my life changed. I had entered a giveaway on this blog, which I ended up winning a few weeks later, but that’s not why my life changed. One of the entries to the giveaway was to join a wax group on Facebook, and so, wanting to win the giveaway, I did. This is where I discovered this world of wax and soap that I never knew existed. I can’t begin to describe the fun I had every day, the friends I met, and the hours I spent just looking at people’s purchases. 

But still, this is not why my life changed. The Facebook group had a few admins, who ran the group with a positive attitude and no tolerance for anything but fun! One of the admins I saw posting almost every hour of every day was a woman named Lauren, and she, little did I know at the time, was the reason my life changed. I learned all about wax, candles and soap companies from her. I entered every one of her giveaways that she worked very hard on. I watched her start conversations with the group, for no other reason than to just have fun. So when I had questions, concerns, helpful ideas and anything else, Lauren, was the one I felt most comfortable talking to. Over the past few months, our conversations have grown from sending her a message every few weeks to talking almost every day. She is a southern sweetheart who’s been there for me through personal hardships and personal joys. She’s given me some of the best advice I’ve heard in my almost 29 years of existence and is the perfect example of how powerful and confident you can be as a woman, a mother and a business owner.

Shut Up and Tell Us Who Owns The Lady Sailor Already!
Lauren Waterson, the owner of The Lady Sailor not only runs the business, but everything that goes along with it. She is constantly interacting with fans and finding out what they're interested in. She knows that in order to make it in this tough and competitive business, you need to be involved with everything and that includes social media and her fans. I could go on and on and on, but I wanted to let you hear from the owner in her own words. Below, you'll find a Q & A with Lauren Waterson of The Lady Sailor! 

Q: Why the name - The Lady Sailor? What were your inspirations behind it? 
A: I have an obsession with Ladybugs, I have ever since I was a little girl, but I am also extremely proud of my husband, Michael, a member of the U.S. Navy. Before I started The Lady Sailor, I sent goodie bags and cupcakes to his squad, a group of over twenty-five (25) people, on every major holiday because I wanted to show my support in any way I could. So when it came time to finally come up with a name for my company I was stuck. Did I want Ladybugs or did I want Nautical/Navy themes? Finally, after an hour of trying to choose, it came to me! Why not both? And so, I took LADY from LADYbug and made them my logo, along with Anchors for the Nautical/Naval themes, and combined it with Sailor! Thus, The Lady Sailor was born! Funny little fact, my business partner, Samantha Golden AKA Skye, HATES Ladybugs, she is terrified of them, and she never misses a chance to poke fun at my obsession! 

Q: What sets you apart from the rest? 
A: All of my products are completely handmade and each product is tested before it is even released for purchase. Each of our scents are given a Ladybug or Nautical/Naval themed name that many customers find fun and unique. I never stop coming up with new scents, combinations and products. I am always doing extensive research for new scents, products, innovations and items that customers would find the most appealing. 

Q: How do you balance work/home life? 
A: This is a very tough line to walk, actually. My son, Magnus, is ten (10) months old and already walking. This makes watching him and being elbow deep in soap at the same time very difficult. This is where my best friend and partner, Skye, comes in. She is regularly over to help me with everything from brainstorming and ordering supplies to making the products, packing the orders and getting them out the door all while balancing her own 5 year old son, Sebastian, as well. 

Q: What are your must have scents? 
A: It depends on who you ask! If you ask me, I say the must haves are "Ladybug Nectar", "Sailor Taylor's Double Scoop" and "Navy Brat". Skye on the other had would tell you that he must haves are "Ladybug Nest", "Ginger Port" and "Dark Skyes"! This is why she and I work so well together, I am the bright, fruity, foodie scent lover while she loves the scents of musk, earthy tones and perfumes.

Q: Any special products coming up in the future that fans should look for? 
A: Definitely be on the look out for Lotions, Sunscreens and Perfumes in a large variety of scents!

Q: What are your hopes for The Lady Sailor? Where do you see it in a year? 5 years? 
A: I want it to be something that I can look at and be proud of it and have my family see me doing what I love and be proud of! In a year, I hope to see that it has come a long way from where we are now! We are already off to an amazing start so hopefully that dream will become a reality. In five years, I hope to have such a large customer base that I actually have to hire more people and focus on more ideas and expanding the business even further.

Q: As both an owner of a business and a supporter of soap vendors, what do you feel is the most important part of your business? In other words, customer service, tat, coming up with new products often, etc. 
A: Honestly. all of it! Customer Service, Reasonable TAT's and New Products are all extremely important, a business simply cannot survive and thrive without them! Other important elements are love and passion for what you do, understanding your customers and listening to what they have to say, be it positive or negative and learning from it! 

Q: What are some of your favorite product lines that you offer from The Lady Sailor? 
A: My favorite product lines are definitely my Bath Oils!!! They are my absolute favorite product that I make and I often have to wrestle with not keeping a batch to myself!! 

Q: What's your current TAT? 
A: My current TAT is 5-7 business days, which doesn't include weekends and holidays.

Q: What are the ways people can follow you? 
A: People can follow The Lady Sailor in our Facebook Group, "The Lady Sailor" and in our Youtube Channel, "The Lady Sailor" or they can even contact me personally through email, the Facebook Group or YouTube!

Q: What are some bath/body companies you look up to? 
A: Definitely Bath & Bodyworks and Lush! I love their products and scents and they do such an amazing job with new products and quality! 

Q: What's Skye Line on your scent page? 
A: The Skye Line is an entire line of scents comprised solely of only  the most popular and discontinued scents from Bath & Bodyworks scents in honor of my business partner, Samantha Golden (Skye). She asked me one day to make her a soap in the discontinued Black Amethyst scent from BBW and was so ecstatic  over it and so many people were so excited at the prospect of it that she became my inspiration for the entire Skye Line!

Amber's Sassy Creations May Wax Sampler Review

Posted by Jessica Keeton at 5/10/2014 10:28:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
In the past two to three months, I've virtually met and talked to hundreds of people through Facebook wax groups. I've been able to share my love of wax and have been introduced to wax vendors I would have never found on my own. Within an hour of becoming a member of a brand new wax group, I met Amber and I was instantly impressed with her hard-working attitude.

Amber's Sassy Creations

Amber runs Amber's Sassy Creations, where you can find handmade to order, highly-scented soy wax candles, melts, tarts, loaves, brittle and more. With over 65 wax scents in the shop and more updated weekly on their Facebook page, you'll find scents here that you won't find anywhere else. Fun is a huge theme when you take a look at Amber's Sassy Creations. From the shapes to the scents to the colors, you're a part of the wax creation process no matter what you choose. 

Who Owns Amber's Sassy Creations?
Sure, great-smelling wax products can make anyone fall in love with a wax company, but customer service is what can make or break a business. Amber, the owner of Amber's Sassy Creations, has made me a fan for life, based on her customer service alone. She is caring, understanding, patient, beyond helpful, hardworking, and ready to answer any question you have (even if it's 3am.). When my package arrived, it wasn't just wax that was inside, it was hard work, love and care. Oh and it was packaged extremely secure too! As a parent, Amber is someone I look up to. She has a family of her own to raise, but that doesn't stop her from putting 100% into every single piece of wax she works on. 

My Experience with Amber's Sassy Creations
I was very impressed with everything, from how secure every wax product was packaged to the adornments to the delicious smell of every scent. I love that Amber not only offers wax, but candles, wax warmers, and beautiful pieces. What's my favorite part of Amber's Sassy Creations? Well, as I said above, it's FUN. I loved my entire experience. I loved looking through every scent she offered, finding so many I've never tried, some that were her own creations, and even some that I had never seen anywhere else. I loved picking colors for some of my wax melts and the color choices were extremely unique. Let's just say, they weren't your average red, pink, purple, etc. I even needed her to explain one of the color choices to me. Most of all, I loved that it was kid-friendly. What do I mean by that? Well, I want to share my love of wax with everyone and that includes my kids, who're involved in every aspect of my life and that includes my wax addiction.

Anytime a box arrives, they're right there with me, smelling every piece of wax and helping to put it in our special area of the house dedicated to just wax. Having scents that my kids love is important to me, whether it's the bedtime bath scent that Amber offers or it's a scent that combines their two favorites Fruit Loops and bubblegum. Not only was I able to get kid-friendly wax scents, but kid-friendly wax shapes too. The animal-shaped wax tarts were just too cute and I knew my kids would love them, but there's more! Everything from Hello Kitty, Pooh Bear, cupcakes, cookies and donuts to butterflies, flowers, hearts and actual shapes likes squares can be found in Amber's shop. How could kids not love these? Plus, her Hello Kitty jewelry is a perfect kid-friendly gift and if you're looking for a unique warmer for your young ones, they're sure to love the beautiful and bright-colored wax tart warmers she offers. 

Loopy Bubblegum Soy Shot

I absolutely adore this scent! Bubblegum with hints of Fruit Loops combine to make this scent shot a must-have this summer.This 2oz. scent shot is more than enough to fill your home with this creative combination of sweets without being overpowering. I loved that when I flipped the scent shot over, the bottom was adorned with sparkles that matched the scent. Plus, the adorable hot pink ladybug flat back bead that's on top, adds to the charm of this scent!!!

Cranberry Marmalade Soy Shot

This brand new scent from Amber's Sassy Creations made my day! Adorned with a purple jeweled flat back bead, this scent combines tart cranberries, spiced apples and fresh orange zest to turn your house into a home. Imagine going apple picking and you decide to stop into the local shop that's located on the farm to pick up your favorite jams, pies, doughnuts and ciders. That scent you smell when you first walk into the store is the best way I can describe this scent. It's that smell that you always want your house to smell like, but can never achieve, no matter how many jams, jellies or pies you make. This scent shot takes care of that for you.

Butterfly Kisses Large Butterfly Tart

You'll be showered with both kisses and floral scents with this beautiful butterfly! The large butterfly tart gives you springtime year round with more than a generous amount of wax.This scent combines roses and carnations in a bouquet that instantly brings the smell of Spring into your home. The vibrant color and unique detailed features only add to this butterfly tart.

Coconut Fizzy Lime Butterfly & Hello Kitty Wax Melts

When in doubt, you can never go wrong with this scent! I love the freshness that it exudes and it's perfect for enjoyment year round! The adorable butterfly and Hello Kitty shapes only add to the already amazing scent. Each wax melt contains the delicious scent of coconut and packs a punch with fizzy lime, combining to make a scent that brings freshness to life.

Mango Peach Salsa Mixed Shapes Wax Melts

This refreshing, energizing and invigorating scent awakens your senses and invites summer in. These wax melts combine fresh island mango, citrus lime and fresh peach to bring the long-awaited summer to you. This is a must-have for summer parties and cool nights and really packs a punch of energy. If you like Yankee candle's version, you are going to absolutely love this scent from Amber's Sassy Creations. Yum Yum Yum!

Lemon Fizz Cotton Candy Square
If you're a lover of lemon scents, then this delicious wax square is a must-have. Combining the eye-opening, refreshing and invigorating scent of Lemon Fizz with the sweet and sugary cotton candy scent, makes this wax square good enough to eat. Adorned with a jeweled flat back bead, the bright yellow color that comes off this tart, instantly puts a smile on your face. This is the perfect summertime scent and a must-have for all your summer parties. Plus, this scent is the perfect way to start your mornings off with it's refreshing qualities. This will definitely awaken your senses.

Root Beer Float Pooh Bear Tart
As a child, I watched Pooh Bear on TV before school, and as a mother, my kids now do the same, so this was the perfect tart for us! Combining America's classic Root Beer Float with children's favorite Disney character comes the ultimate wax tart. Plus, the beautiful and vibrant color only adds to this delicious drink scent! Root beer and vanilla ice cream come together to make this the perfect scent year round and an instant hit this summer!

Apple Mango Tango & Raspberry Fizz ("Fizzy Tango") Rose & Heart Tarts
If you love Gain fabric softener, then you’re going to love this scent. Amber combines Gain’s Apple Mango Tango & Raspberry Fizz to give you the ultimate fresh, fruity and fizzy scent. This is the perfect scent to get all your Spring cleaning done! Open the windows, pop these tarts in the warmer, and you're on your way to fresh and fruity heaven.

Fruit Loops Clover Confetti Wax Melts 
I have a soft spot for fruit loops scented wax so when I saw that Amber's Sassy Creations offered clover confetti wax melts that looked so fun and colorful, I thought it was the perfect way to get one of my favorite wax scents. These clover confetti wax melts are perfect for home or on-the-go! They're the perfect size to fit in any warmer and not too bulky so you can take them wherever you go to get this yummy cereal scent everywhere! A must-have if you have kids or if this was your favorite cereal as a child!

Bedtime Bath Animal-Shaped Tarts
 This scent is a must-have if you have children. In fact, if you love calming scents, you don't want to miss out on Bedtime Bath. We always have Bedtime Bath, both bubble bath and body lotion, in our home for our kids. This wax scent is so calming for kids and is one of my favorites from Amber's Sassy Creations. The lavender mixed with chamomile is the perfect combination for total relaxation and melting it just before bedtime, helps both kids and adults. I decided to get these for my kids in the adorable animal shapes that Amber offers and in their favorite color.
