Aromatherapy Lotions

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!

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
