Challenge from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie: This week write your response to the word – Lotion. It may be relaxing, comforting, curative, a life saver, even magical – go where the prompt leads you.
Believe it or not, lotion can have a calming effect on the senses. I was a non-believer for most of my adult life, never desiring to purchase fragranced lotions, which often caused an adverse skin reaction. After learning my son suffered the same fate, I doubled-down on purchasing “free and clear” everything.
Thankfully my body has changed and lotions no longer cause any issues. Realizing that, I developed a guilty pleasure allowing me to enjoy a new scent every day, depending on my desired mood.
Aromatherapy fragrances at Bath & Body Works are easily my favorite and I’ve overindulged enough to earn lots of free product. An intervention may be necessary!
