The LIVE list:

Pampering:

1.  Who doesn’t love a bath?  With all the holiday rushing about, there is something entirely indulgent and soothing about a good long soak.  EO Bath salts are a wonderful treat.

2.  In the blustery cold of winter taking care of our skin is a top priority.  The best way to retain the moisture is with an all natural sesame oil.  Used on its own or mixed in with some rejuvenation oil it will keep you soft and supple until spring.

3.  The Yogi in your life might be more inclined to start using a neti pot if you gifted them with a really pretty one; this one just might do the trick.
