From reading the description on this collection they all share similar notes of Dark Patchouli,Amber resin, Sandalwood, Cardomom, Rock Rose Resin, Myrrh Co2, Frankincense, Cedarwood Atlas, Agarwood C02, Spikenard and Sea Buckthorn but each has its own twist to set it apart form the rest.
Choco-Chouli - Dark rich and very delicious, this was the first one i sampled from the package and it did not disappoint, its starts off rich and warm and hugs the skin with its rich French Cocoa Absolute and this lingers a bit until it drifts into a sweet wood.
Rosa-Chouli - I have sampled rose and patchouli perfume before so i was like OK this would probity be the same scent, nope the rose in this is so alive its like smelling a rose that just open its bud. Beautiful roses upon roses unfolding its petals is what this scent opens with and them on the dry down the patchouli adds a deep alluring scent that last and last until you wash it off.
Cedar-Chouli - Now this one brings back memories of desert rain hot overcast the earth rich aroma scorch by the sun awaiting the first drop of rain. I enjoyed this one for those days when i needed something to call my own rare and special. This is consider masculine but i am loving it.
Rum-Chouli - Dark and mysterious, this is another masculine scent but it smell nice on me and it is not at all over powering.
Pixie-Chouli - Very sweet and Feminine vanilla mix up with a little dirt.Lovely balance of essential perfect for every day wear.

I wash my hands allot and the one thing I do not like is dry hands and dry skin, I have to lotion my hands every time I wash them and not any or every lotion can hold up to this test.
In June of 09 I purchase this Sweet Orange Calendula Cream with organic oils from Mirasol Farm and it’s a life saver so this is yet another revisited product. She still carries this if you want to try it.
Nov. 09 Holiday Offering Spiced Chocolate Jasmine Body Butter and Vanilla Ginger Decadent Body Butter by the talented The Scented Djinn the best for the cold winter months and a little goes a long way and the scent don't get me started on the scent I am wearing the Spiced Chocolate Jasmine Body Butter today and it smells like I just purchased it now it 's been like what a year now and this body butter still holds strong with moisture and smell. You see Justin its 2010 and yes it’s the Holidays again wink wink :)
Nov. 09 amma's rose lotion by Feather Heart Trading Co. now rename as sandalwood rose peace lotion I remember this lotion I am all out yep this one did not last it was used up because unlike the Holiday Offering from The scented Djinn that only came out for special occasion this was my everyday lotion beautifully scented with rose water and sandalwood the oils in this are on the money as well cocoa butter, shea butter, aloe vera, and almond oil. I will repurchase this body butter.
Aug. 09 Vanilla Blossom Organic Salt Scrub with Real Vanilla, Exotic Orange Blossom Absolute, Dead Sea Salts and Mineral Clay by Gabriel's Aunt, now I have scrubs that I got way after I purchase this scrub and when I open them I get the funny oil gone bad smell but not this the scent is still strong its dense and after useing this scrub I do not need to butter up, talk about soft supple skin. She no longer has this listed but she has other scrub that I will try after I use up my lot.

It’s something to consider when you need to get away but cannot make a trip outside your home. Sit in your time out corner, one fill with cushions and lush pillows with cheerful colors and relax in your space. Incense and candles are welcome, gem stone for insight and the third eye a drop of essential oil in your burner and nothing but a clear mind, peaceful heart, happy thoughts and brighter days.

Pacing, a stride, trying to get back into this crazy place, I am so off I feel as if I was in a different world for the two weeks that I have been away. I have not unpacked and my stuff is all over the place meaning not as organized as I would love them to be and my body feels strange. My new scent love for the past week are rose, ginger and spice not all together at once but hey maybe they could go together if you think about it that's a good combo, hope to be back soon with some good scented review.

Not only does this Essential oil smell absolutely divine and very costly but it is a gem for problem skin, neroli improves elasticity, reduces thread veins, softens wrinkles and scars. Neroli is one of nature’s most effective antidepressant oils as well. Produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree Neroli is gently uplifting, calming and provides a sense of well-being, rejuvenating effect on the skin and has the ability to stimulate the growth of new and healthy cells. In my eyes this is a power essence with many use and benefits, so the next time your down take a sniff of this fine oil and use it in your skin care from time to time in a hydrosol or a serum. I recommend Nerola Verde to scent the body, Jasmine Neroli Rose Body Oil is lovely one to apply after your bath. Good luck finding Neroli facial oil, Eleeleneetha had one the other day that is a treat for your skin and senses but it’s not listed any more so keep on the lookout.
I am back in the gym yea and it feels very refreshing, am I the only one that likes to apply something uplifting or calming to accompany me to the gym. Yesterdays choice was this Eau De Cologne Spray from eleneetha shop and guess what it has the most zesty lemonade scent that just gets me perky and it also has Neroli in it blink blink. Yesterdays work out was legs 5 reps of 10 for each exercise I call this the burn out mission when you reach your breaking point and you push yourself to the limit. I do 10 min on the uphill before each workout and after each workout and I also stretch. Exercise gets the blood flowing and that’s a good thing and it also make you feel and look good, so I say make time for a little cardio and thanks to SS for the push.

The composition on Hedone is well constructed and illustrates great romance and strength. The story of timeless love that is what Hedone brings to me, as a child watching black and white films the glam of a time unforgotten. A solid foundation of the sacred and very pricey Agarwood that lends a dark resinous and oriental note to this solid perfume cream , this balances perfectly with four different roses and laces well over other notes of frankincense, myrrh, orange, labdanum and vanilla.
The opening of Hedone is somewhat rich and spicy it warms up nicely on my skin, wear this perfume cream when you’re feeling romantic, sultry and like a sex kitten.
A meditative oil home grown, home brew sweet grass infusion, with a lending hand from other essential of lavender, clary sage and vanilla that come alive when applied to skin warm, sweet and relaxing. Other notes of hay and carrot seed on the dry down without reading the ingredient list I smelled oakmoss but I guess hay and carrot seed will give that impression. Wear this when you’re going to meditate, do a little yoga or to bed. HUM
Black Lapsang Tea infusion sets the tone this is a smoky, fruity smell. Mix it with a little vanilla, mix it with a little rose use it on its own. It’s good like that and so very different from anything you've used in the past. Wear this whenever you take your next nature walk to the park and enjoy as the sun warms your skin and the scent of Lapsang Tea sings scented melodies. Enjoy

The oil is of high nutritional value because its 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids, which matches the balance required by the human body.In cosmetic and body care products, Hemp Seed Oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, balances dry skin, fights skin inflammations, helps heal skin lesions, has anti-oxidants, and contains moisture balancing properties. The oil is non-greasy, readily absorbs into the pores, is an emollient, and has rejuvenating and moisturizing properties for the skin. Adult users of Hemp Seed Oil have reported softer skin, and stronger nails and hair after only a few weeks of using 1-2 Tablespoons per day. The vitamins and minerals present in Hemp Seed Oil are easily absorbed through the skin, resulting in a more vitamin and mineral enriched body care product.
Hemp Seed Hair Butter
1 oz Shea Butter
4 table spoon coconut oil
4 table spoon hemp seed oil
Essential oil of choice
I used 6 drops Jane Carter nourishing serum and 3 drops of Euphoria type Essential Oil Blend a jasmine, rose and sandalwood blend from FigLeafSoap

PART ONE OF A THREE PART REVIEW
Are you one for scents that tells a story, a scent that goes beyond top, middle and base notes, scents that are alive and has a journey that takes you to a far away time and place, scents that lives on? If you are, you've come to the right place because this the first installment of a three part scent journey into vireo's world. I enjoy this new space on ETSY, her energy draws me into her space, her description takes me to what she sees and its just magical.
Her description for this is almost edible and it sure is, its supple and sweet feminine without the flowers but captivating and cozy. This scent is yummy with notes of blood orange, cardamon, violet, Cassie for a touch of spice, coco absolute for warmth, and vanilla for a little sweets, my only wish for this scent is for it to linger a little longer and guess what she listen and now it comes in a more amped up version. I would imagine if I could make Violette ice creams these would be my ingredients. Yum
Smoke Follows Beauty
Dark and moist, green and lush, tantalizing mossy twigs. It wraps up together in one to create this breath taking rich scent. With notes like hay, Guaiacwood these two are at the beginning of this scent and as the journey goes on I get what might be the Lapsangs souchong (Vireo infusion), and at the end sandalwood and vanilla takes it home. Long lasting, stayed with me all day.
Madagascar & Tahitian Vanilla Oil
Yummy Yum Yum goodness I have never smelled a vanilla infusion so rich, sweet, syrupy, dripping caramel yumness. Wow this takes me to someplace good I wanna taste it it looks edible and smells delectable. She sent me a sample of this and I had to get a vial for my stash.
I enjoy these creation and will be on the look out for new listing on Vireo.
Coco Violette $12 1/8 oz dram vial
Smoke follows beauty $9 1/8 oz dram vial
Madagascar & Tahitian Vanilla oil $9 1/8 oz dram vial

I plan on going thrifty to get a dining table but the boys don't enjoy my style for strange and crusty looking things, so they try to talk me out of it all the time. They love new and shiny while I love old and vintage. My dad and I went to Home Goods last weekend and I pick up an wooded art for my wall on sale for only $10, two mirror with wood around then for $5 each and a small picture for $2 I live for a sale by the way, he was like where are you going with that I was like it looks vintage and used so I will buy it thank you.
I need to attend to my garden and the flowers they are being neglected because on the weekend I spend time with my dad and sisters along with G, so my home and yard do not get the time and attention it deserve but at times I just want to get away from it all and that is where the laziness kicks in. I think the sun hits my home the hardest so everything that I plant dies from the blazing sun, gots to find shade to keep them safe it can get pretty hot here in Florida blazing hot.
So now that summer is in and what I cannot go to the beach because of the oil spill are you freaking telling me that my summer will be beach less? What fun is summer if iIlive in Florida with great beaches and weather and all I can do is look and do not touch? What about our health come on get it together if you destroy everything that God creates what do you think will happen to you in the near future.
New scents are coming in the mail this weekend i hope and i just wanna smell hurry up mailman hurry. Two need discoveries on ETSY Vireo Perfumes and Midnight Gypsy Alchemy.

I was feeling a little fatigued, scent is a mood shifter this I know I started using blends with fragrance oil just a tad for something different you know at times you need a change, but my head started feeling funny my mood was crazy the negative feelings started creeping in and I was just down for no reason I mean I have problems in my life like we all do but this had nothing to do with that. I think that the perfume gave me the negative fibe so now I am back to using only natural scents. Problem solved because i fell upbeat.
The power of nature essential oils and plant base material and the benefits of using natural base products.

I search high and low for a natural deodorant for years and finally i found two that works one i use at night the other at day.
Ozonated olive oil deodorant & skin treatment, i use this at nights and whenever I shave, and it totally repair my pits from those awful boils and burnt skin that i got from other deodorant. This first press olive oil is saturated with ozone (said to be a natural bacteria killing agent) made from ambient air, What is this you ask? I do not know, i did my research on this and i like what i read as to if it is true i do not know i am being honest. The smell of this is nutty and spicy and true to an olive scent. I have been using this for a month now and the container is still to the brim so this will last for some time i think. I keep it in the door of my fridge. Do your own research on this beauty and if you know anything about this product educate me, but all i have to say is my pit are ready for summer and they don't have to hide anymore.
The All Natural Face
Vegan crystal deodorant,main ingredient are Potassium alum (some say its good some say its bad), aloe, Essential oils, and let me just say it work no brake out no burnt skin and it smell good but the scent does not last, you still perspire and that's a good thing people you need to sweat.
I say do your own research if you are interested in these products.
Vegan Crystal Deodorant 3oz $7.50
Ozonated Olive Oil Deodorant 1oz $9.95

Its spinning into spring and now it is a time to take a look at my skincare. I have things under control with acne and all but you still have to maintain and keep things clear. I have been using Rainwater Botanical products for almost or over a year now i really never stay with things for such a long time because i always wanna try and change stuff even if i am getting good results. I learn these days i am keeping it simple and if it is not broken do not try to fix it.
I reorder my trouble skin serum along with some new product for spring and summer, i decided to try Sea Buckthorn skin care kit consist of facial cream, serum and a soap.
*Sea Buckthorn & Carrot Nutritive day Hydration- This is very light and perfect for spring and summer skin care because my skin feels moisturized and cool at the same time not heavy with lots of oils and butter but just the right amount of nutrient to feed your skin.
*Sea Buckthorn & Pomegranate Intensive Treatment serum- Now this is the power house of all power house my skin is soft to the touch as soon as i apply this serum it is packing some very impressive stuff it smells good and yes i am in love with this serum.
*Sea Buckthorn Nutritive Facial Soap- This soap impress me i must say its like washing your face with a thick oil that suds yes it clean with out stripping your face instead your skin feels soft and looks clear ready for the next step.
Sara is an amazing person i tell her this all the time, she answers your convo's and i feel like she is a friend, i just love her vibes and she is a sweet sweet person that goes all out to help. Along with the things i order she sent me a new eye cream that is not listed as yet to test. Fun and joke aside the Intensive eye cream is the best i ever used the skin around my eye is soft and i look alive when i wake up in the mornings well rested and ready for my day, pack with helichrysum extract, green tea extract, buckthorn oil, borage seed oil just to name a few this list goes on and one, and a little goes a long way so this will last for a long time as with all her products.
Sea Buckthorn Skin care kit $24.50
Sea Buckthorn Try me Kit $4.00

This hair wash is pure as pure can get, no lather, no fillers, no fragrance, no preservatives, no chemicals at all nothing man made everything in this hair wash comes from mother earth. Simple pure ingredient made up of organic Aloe Vera juice, clay minerals, plant extract and essential oils that's it.
It comes in five different flavors for us lady's with different hair types because we ain't all made up the same way. The web site is well informative with all you need to know about their business and the meaning behind natural products. I used Lavender Garden in the past and i just restock with two big bottles one lavender garden and the other left coast lemon.
This product rocks, it is different for those who love to lather up with big bubbles that strips our hair. If that's what you like this is not it be warned. If you have a lot of build up and cons that you would like to ride your hair of and go to a more natural product lineup, this is good for you. If you just wont to maintain and wash with this as you would with a regular shampoo this is good for you, if you go on the Terressential web page there is step by step instructions for the hair detox process.
I use this product in the shower, i wash my hair in eight big braids, let the water run until my hair is soak then i take down one braid at a time apply mud wash and detangle with fingers and then twist it up, then move on to another braid you get the picture. When all my hair is soaking with the mud wash i let it sit for a few i might go outside fully clothed (i am not a nudes) and let the sun help to bake the mud with a shower cap on so it stays moist and not dry out. Then i get back in the shower and undo one twist at a time and let the water flow and wash the mud out of my hair not disturbing the curls too much i will detangle with my finger while the water is running through the hair and then re-twist and move on to the next twist. Now i only do this mud wash ever seven to eight week, in between my mud wash i conditioner wash every weekend.
Pros: This product cleans the hair without stripping it of its natural oil and helps to balance your oil production. It makes my curls pop like crazy, my hair is shinny, soft and comes alive, you don't need to use a conditioner after using this clay wash and i could detangle with my fingers when i use this product. Sweet
Cons: I use this when i am taking a shower and i just do not like to wash my hair when i am in the shower because it takes too long and i am wet and feel icky. That's it
Trust me on this one, your hair will thank you it come in 2oz $4, 8oz $10.75,16oz $20.50 and trial size gift set of four 2oz for $17.95.
Scents Available are:
Left Coast Lemon

So remember its not about gift and how big of a gift that lets you know how much you are loved and appreciated but its the little things throughout the year that counts
You have to learn to love yourself before you love someone else. If you don't have a valentine treat yourself.

Get moving by walking riding a bike or going to the gym, surround yourself with people that have the same drives so you can support each other. It is very important to keep the body moving go keep active. If the gym is not your thing that's OK you can do it at home, if you are lacking motivation here is a tip the best place to do your exercise in my eyes is facing direct sunlight and nature a window or a glass door, if that does not do it for you exercise while watching TV whenever commercial comes on. Try stretching every morning when you rise and before going to bed. Take the stairs not the elevator walk around the park with lush trees and fresh air. Get motivated and get off your Butts peoples.
Nourish your body with natural soaps and body butter, store bought soaps and lotions are loaded with all kinds of fillers that's does nothing for you but everything for the manufacture to make then rich, you might say its too expensive to go all natural but its really not and trust me in the long haul it is worth every penny. Your skin will thank you and you will grow old gracefully, why would you put man made chemicals on your skin when mother nature provides everything you need to nourish and replenish the body.
Keep negative thoughts and people out of your life, try not to stress it is hard not to i know but whenever you feel it coming one take a brake. Plant a tree watch it grow it will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside to know that you care for this plant and digging in the dirt is also a stress relieve. Do you know what "me time" is if not you need to get some "me time". Stop and meditate each day, and see what the day has to offer don't let life pass you by and do not get suck up into the unnecessary.

Two of my old lovelies are from Little Flowers and if i knew then what i know now i should have collected a few full bottles but i have only samples of Desert Rain and Sepia Perfume and now they are gone and her shop on ETSY is closed due to her illness.
Desert Rain- Smells like parched earth when the fist drop of rain its the soil and then comes the beautiful synergy that Mother nature plays upon our senses. This scent captures my heart and steal my soil with every note from the top with the wormwood, then its moves to the heart with orange blossom and frangipani, then down to the base with notes like rock rose and oudh then a little surprise with violet leaf, and it has other notes that make this fine as aged wine.
Sepia- Unlike the sweetness of Desert Rain Sepia is rather sharp even the guys like this one ,is it because of the leather theme? maybe but i can tell you what mi gal thinks. with top notes of hiba wood and basil, then moving to the heart with two kinda rose and champaka, then on to the base with tobacco and ambrette seed and to sweaten the deal with mimosa and kewda. What a delight.

Chocolate Natural Perfume Custom Sampler from Illuminated Perfume
I could not resist sampling this collection, come on so many blends of chocolate perfume you just might think you’re in a candy store. Ever blend you could think of and you know I mostly get the ones mix with woodsy notes because I am a lover of all things deep and dark, but if you are not she has a orange blend and a cherry blend I think there is something for ever desire. So take a lick of your picking and indulge in your chocolate fantasy. You have a choice of any four blends for the small price of $15. Enjoy
Figure 1: Noir
Like its edible counterpart this chocolate is deep, dark and mysterious with a strong musk note. This is deep dark chocolate and I do smell patchouli.
Figure 3: La Forêt
A dense conifer forest meets an ocean of chocolate. I wondered what an ocean of chocolate might smell like and I must say it does smell like there were six different blends of chocolate in and ocean of forest.
Figure 5: Bois de Chocolat
Smokey woods and chocolate. My most beloved from the bunch it reminds me of Q (another blend that she has on her site) with chocolate added to sweeten the deal.
Figure 6: L'epice
Spice, a hint of vanilla and chocolate. This smell like a spice chocolate tea, ready to warm your winter chills.
