The Giving Essence Gift Set Giveaway
Now that you've followed along with my different series on herbs, you can see how useful herbs can be to your everyday life, either in the kitchen or in the medicine cabinet. I've pointed you to Diane's dk Mommy Spot recently, and now I'd like to point you toward The Giving Essence, an herbal store owned and operated by Diane.
Diane has a talent for creating wonderful balms made from her essential oils and dried herbs. I've been fortunate enough to try, for myself, many of these products. Currently, I am using the Peppermint Lip Balm and her new Lavender Mint Foot Balm, but I've also used the Essential Peppermint Stick Headache and Stress Remover, and the Dream Stick, as well as several of the Essential Sprays.
Since lavender is one of my favorite herbal scents, I couldn't wait to give the new foot balm a test run. Combining the lavender with mint was genius! It's cool and refreshing and at the same time calming.
I've used lots of foot balms over the last few years, trying to get rid of the dry and cracking skin on my heels. Some work and some don't, but one thing they all had in common was their greasiness; I'm not fond of wearing socks to bed to keep my sheets clean. The Giving Essence Foot Balm does not leave an oily spot behind on your bed clothing After regular nightly use of my pumice stone followed by the balm, I found a huge improvement. I feel like I have my feet back to normal again --they're almost as nice as a baby's behind --and if I stick to the regimen, I won't be embarrassesd to wear sandals this summer!
