This was a birthday present – and it’s a goodie. Kereru Natural Products are based VERY locally to our house (in the middle of our street… EARWORM), and stock quite the range of essential oil based goodies – balms and lotions and oils: oh my! They have been doing their thing since 1988, and have their formulations down pat. Website link at the end of the post!
So, this was a gift from Mr Husband Man – I think he was subtly telling me to stress-less, as the one he chose was Summer Breeze: De-stress and Be Happy. Don’t mind if I do. Look how pretty it is!
The labels of Kereru Products are all handmade / printed looking, and super cute. I love it when the thought has gone into the product, not the packaging! I must say, mine has ‘Everescent Bath Salts’ on the label.. and Editor Ami thinks that’s a bit amusing – I’m not sure if it’s fizzy; or about to break into screechy emo song. Anyway! This smells really, really nice, and works beautifully. The essential oils used are bergamot, grapefruit, lime and geranium – so they are SERIOUS about picking your mood up. I mostly smell bergamot (grapefruit and lime blend with that so nicely so aren’t as obvious to my nose), then a geranium note which adds a lovely floral tone.
Once in the bath it does the fizz thing nicely, and then releases the oils which sit on top of the water – and do some very effective aromatherapy skin softening. Plus, unlike some other products, this aroma lingers. It’s in the bath with you for the duration, seriously nice staying power!
I would recommend checking out their website (http://www.kereru.co.nz/webshop/) – and seeing what they have there. Local, super eco friendly and dedicated to their work.
