My beautiful niece surprised me with a jar of homemade lemongrass body butter for Christmas. I opened the jar and was immediately treated to a delectable delight that looked good enough to eat! But I slathered it all over my body instead, and it felt like a decadent mound of whipped creamy heaven.
Usually when I get a gift of good smelling body gel or lotion I save it for a special occasion. I have a whole cabinet full now, because I never feel special enough to use it. So I save and save it until it goes bad and I have to throw it away. What a waste.
2012 is going to be the year of a well oiled Jan! I am going to scrub, gel, and lather myself up with every available option I have. The body butter won’t last forever, so I won’t use it for just a regular day, but WILL use it at least once a week. All this weekend I have been dabbing on me, especially my hands, that were like alligator skin. I cannot believe the difference body butter makes!
This morning when I took my shower, I loofahed with body scrub, then body gel. Toweled off a bit and then slapped on the body butter. I smelled so delicious then I couldn’t stand it! No need for perfume, my pores were oozing fresh and clean scents! I’m not big on overpowering scents like cheap perfume or musk, I prefer fresh and clean scents with a hint of my favorite florals. I don’t want my presence to be announced in a cloud of smell before I enter the room, I want my scent to waft to your nostrils only when you lean in close for a hug or kiss.
Not that I ever smelled bad, mind you, but now I smell extra special. Because I’m worth it! So thanks, special niece, for starting off my New Year in a treat to the senses!
