Ode to Rose Geranium Toner

I am in love with HollyBeth Organics’ Rose Geranium Toner. In fact, it is one of my all-time favorite skin care products, and I won’t leave home without it. Looking for a great-smelling body mist? Need a toner to sooth your skin? Want to keep your makeup in place all day long? How about a rehydrating midday pick-me-up? This product does it all! Oh, Rose Geranium Toner, how I love thee, let me count the ways.

Great-Smelling Body Mist

Rose and geranium combine to create a rich, rosy smell that will make anyone feel like royalty. Get blanketed in luxury with each spray of this beautifully fragrant body mist. Just imagine standing under a waterfall of rose petals!

Soothing Toner

Keep your skin in check with this Rose Geranium Toner’s antiseptic properties of rose geranium hydrosol, nourishing rose oil, and anti-inflammatory helichrysum. This sooth-all skin solution calms and heals with each spray.

Makeup Setting Spray

Tired of your makeup running off your face by the end of the day? The last step of your morning routine should be a few sprays of the Rose Geranium Toner to set everything in place to keep your face game going strong.

Midday Refresher

Been running around all day? Just got off of a long flight? You know that icky, weighed-down feeling your skin gets when you have been going non-stop? A few sprays of the Rose Geranium Toner will rehydrate your skin and refresh your senses with a much-needed pick-me-up.

Seriously, this toner has earned a spot of honor in my makeup bag. Reward your skin (and your senses!) with this ultimate jack of all trades.

Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

History

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines aromatherapy as “the use of natural oils that have a pleasant smell to make a person feel better especially by rubbing the oils into the skin.” The use of essential oils for aromatherapy dates back over 6,000 year ago to Egyptian times, spreading quickly to Israel, Greece, and Rome. Throughout the entire Mediterranean region, essential oils were used in massages, burned in incense, and utilized as perfumes for their fragrant, energizing properties. Though the use of essential oils began to decline upon the arrival of modern science, a contemporary resurgence and enthusiasm has reignited the use of these naturally powerful oils.

Aromatherapeutic Flourish Calming Perfume

Each essential oil delivers its own fragrance and therapeutic benefit. HollyBeth designed her new Flourish Calming Perfume to evoke feelings of tranquility and reduce stress utilizing specific essential oils known to calm the senses (and smell great!).  The earthy, citrus perfume utilizes bergamot, cedarwood, and ylang ylang to ease stress and relieve anxiety, marjoram to combat fatigue, and rose geranium and chamomile to soothe and uplift the spirits. Simply apply the perfume to the skin via rollerball application, allow to dry, and inhale the aroma deeply. Voila! An instant mood boost.

Whether you’ve had a tiring day of traveling, a long day at work, or just want to smell something pleasing, revive your spirits with some of Mother Nature’s stress-relieving oils.

HollyBeth’s Three Favorite Skin Care Products for Traveling

Short-Sleeve Travel Weather is Around the Corner

When it’s a sunny, 60 degree day in February, you can’t help but long for short-sleeve shirt weather and spring road trips. Inspired by the surprise heat, HollyBeth and I couldn’t help but discuss our favorite places to travel to as we ate lunch today. Exotic beaches with white sand, classic cities home to great art and architecture, off-the-map locations promising fun and adventure, and familiar favorites full of good memories: we want to visit them all! Almost time to get those passports ready – and figure out what to pack.

Packing for a Trip

Ah, the process of packing for a trip. If you are anything like me, you want to pack your entire closet, because you may get the chance to break in those shoes you‘ve never worn, to wear that dress that has been begging for a night out, or use that cute rain jacket that just might come in handy – you see where I am going with this. Once the hypothetical outfit situations are covered, time to narrow down your toiletry bag.

With the skin care guru herself sitting next to me at lunch, I couldn’t resist asking her which HollyBeth Organics’ products are her favorite skin care products for traveling.

HollyBeth’s Must-Have Skin Care Products for Traveling

  1. Rose Geranium Toner – A few squirts of this flower-flavored beauty mist refreshes and rehydrates (and makes you smell good). An excellent pick-me-up when you have been traveling all day.
  2. Eye Cream – A HollyBeth Organics classic (the first product she created), this luxuriously silky cream keeps delicate skin hydrated and moisturized. The perfect eye refresher after a tiring day of adventures.
  3. Chamomile Foaming Cleanser – This gentle yet sudsy cleanser removes the day’s dirt and oil, leaving behind soothed, balanced skin. Great for all skin types, so everyone in your travel party can use it.

So now I know what I’m bringing with me on my next vacation!

Atlanta Shopping – Fig & Flower

Atlanta Shopping: In Search of the Perfect Gifts

February is a month of gift-giving occasions for me. Of course Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but I also have my friend’s wedding anniversary and my sister-in-law’s birthday to celebrate. So, my present list consists of a fella who insists he doesn’t need anything (my husband), a fashionista with impeccable taste (my friend), and a mother of two who is always on the go (my sister in law). Sounds like a busy weekend of shopping in Atlanta!

Highland Row

Rather than run around the city, I decided to go to one of the best shopping spots in the Poncey-Highlands area of Atlanta. Often referred to as “Highland Row,” this charming lineup of boutiques offers a variety of unique crafts and gifts. First stop, Highland Row Antiques. This two story antique store has something for everyone. I find a musical gift for my husband in one of the used record bins and head next store to Young Blood Boutique, the perfect spot to find artisan crafted jewelry. I pick out a beautiful necklace sure to please my fashionable friend and head to my favorite store on the block: Fig & Flower.

Fig & Flower

This green beauty boutique offers natural, cruelty-free beauty products, including HollyBeth Organics, the only 100% USDA Certified Organic skincare product line in Georgia. I go straight for HollyBeth Organics’ Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer, a favorite of my sister-in-law not only for its hydrating power but also for its delightful flowery fragrance.

HollyBeth Online

Knowing my sister-in-law’s love of HollyBeth’s rose geranium aroma, I hopped online and sent her one of HollyBeth Organics’ limited edition Rose Geranium Candles, each hand-made with eco-friendly soy wax and packaged in a porcelain vessel made by Atlanta’s own Honeycomb Studio. Go to HollyBethOrganics.com to purchase this one-of-a-kind candle, beautifully gift wrapped and ready to go.

Looks like I’m all set! Now time to shop for some more HollyBeth Organics products just for me ;).
