I used to hate bar soaps but lately I’ve become a big fan of them. There’s something old world about them, and I’ve come to appreciate the small ritual they involve. I recently picked up a Tom’s of Maine Relaxing Natural Beauty Bar with Calming Lavender, and I think it’s just the thing I needed this busy time of year.
This is a 100% soap, meaning the lavender scent comes from actual lavender, thus ensuring you get the genuine aromatherapy properties. The soap itself is moisturizing with olive oil and natural Vitamin E, which means it leaves your hands clean and fresh. I love how this makes my hands feel — they’re maintained, clean, and taken care of, but there’s no overly moisturized muss and fuss.
Another option is to use this in the shower, where the steam will helpl give those arotherapy molecules a boost, ensuring you start your day bright, clean, and stress-free.
