(REVIEW) Hippie Chick Herbal Harmony
I am so blessed to be able to you all about a wonderful business called Hippie Chick Herbal Harmony. This website and business, started by a cancer survivor named Kristi, offers all natural, chemical-free products like essential oils, homeopathic tinctures, mud masks, and bath scrubs. Her products are also very affordable, and make wonderful gifts for anyone on your list.
I was fortunate enough to be able to review three of her most popular products: Detox Your Socks Off Bath Salts, Body Butter-Creamcicle, Sea Salt Scrub-Invigorating Orange Mint.
If you’re like me, you LOVE your bath time. A chance to relax in a hot bath and think about yourself (gasp!) for 15 minutes is so wonderful. The first time I ran a bath and added Detox Your Socks Off Bath Salts, I was in love.
The light ginger scent fills the room and immediately relaxes your senses. The directions recommend running a 1/2 cup under your running bath water, and because of the epsom salts in the mixture, it also recommends drinking lots of water to help the detoxification process. I did follow those instructions with great results. Here’s a description from Kristi’s website: “With a blend of the finest Epsom salts, Sea salts, Powders, soda, Organic herbs, Freshly ground ginger, and Essential oils, a perspiration-promoting effect will occur, possibly even after the bath, depending on your body’s need to eliminate harmful toxins.” I honestly felt so good after that first bath with Detox Your Socks Off! Bath Salts, I couldn’t wait for the next night and an opportunity to try it again. If you’re a bath lover, I strongly encourage you to try this great product!
With my morning shower (I’m a clean person this week), I gave the Sea Salt Scrub a try! I was given the Invigorating Orange-Mint, and it is a very mild, citrus-y and minty scent--very, very pleasant for a morning wake-up shower! And how much do you love putting stuff on your body that has ingredients you can pronounce? No parabens, no chemicals, just sea salt and essential oils and good stuff ! I used it as a exfoliator on my thighs (hey, that cellulite won’t fight itself) and on my face. I have an extremely sensitive face in terms of product usage, so I am pleased to announce that I had no adverse reactions to the scrub, only a squeaky clean face! Love it!
And, now, last but not least, my absolute favorite of the trio I got to review--Creamcicle Body Butter! This silky, smooth thick cream is so yummy, I wanted to eat it (but didn’t). It smells like a vanilla ice cream cone, and feels like a warm blanket going on. I have very rough heels and work diligently to get them to feel better because they stay so dry and scratchy. I used this Creamcicle Body Butter from Hippie Chick Herbal Harmony, and in ONE application, I could tell a significant difference.
This has helped where other products have not. I have continued to use it daily, and I am so pleased with the results. And best of all, it’s ALL natural. The older I get, the more I appreciate that word, “natural”. The Body Butter is also available in Sweet Jasmine and Coconut-Lime scents. Get it! You will love it!
