In my ongoing quest to find more things to rave than rant about, I happened across an Etsy shop called, The Dancing Grasshopper.
This family and home based business is a treasure, offering beautifully handcrafted olive oil soaps, lotions and lip balms; soy candles, bath salts and organic buckwheat pillows. Using only the purest ingredients and botanicals, it is clear that this is a labor born of love. A great deal of attention and care is poured into each product from inception to the simple yet stylish packaging. I am a collector of bath and body products. Actually, the term hoarder might be more appropriate. My point is that I know a good product when I see one and this is the real deal.
I sampled their Mint Julep Lip Balm ($2.95) which comes in this very cool retro slide-top tin. Think of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies and you get a sense of just how delicious this stuff is. I wanted to devour it. With olive oil as a primary ingredient, this lip balm doesn't just smell great, it works great too. And who doesn't love the slight tingle that mint leaves on your lips?
Also on my menu of indulgence, their Tomato Leaf Olive Oil Lotion ($7.95). Living in Nevada, my skin gets so dry it hurts. So I prepared to slather some on this morning with the nagging suspicion that nothing would ever make my skin feel good again. The first thing I noticed was the smell - clean, fresh, balanced. This light lotion absorbs into the skin fairly quickly and never once did I feel the need to wash my hands after using it. Hours later, my skin is still as soft as it was this morning. Lovely.
Finally... my favorite. Their Blackberry Sage Soy Candle ($5.95). This is six ounces of hand-poured heaven. The smell of ripe blackberries and the earthy notes of sage conjure up memories of long summer nights. This candle makes me want to place an order for anything and everything they sell with this scent. Intoxicating.
