Loving It | May Favourites

Aromatherapy at home

May has passed by rather quickly, and with my main focus on finishing my coursework I have not really had the time to go out and try to explore new things. However, I managed to rediscover things that I already have had at home but did not use for some time. Quite honestly I did not even know I still had some of them.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil by Nature from New Zealand

I have always liked the cooling and refreshing smell of mint and eucalyptus. However, when it came to picking fragrances for the home for some reason I was going for citrusy or flowery scents. I added a few drops of oil into a bowl of warm water and left it on the window sill. Within an hour or so I could smell its energising smell. It made me feel like I was in a luxurious spa resort.

Born Lippy Watermelon Lip Balm by Body Shop

I have to say that I am not a fan of lip balms that require me to use my fingers to apply. This one takes a proud place near my bed. I have the impression that this lip balm not only smells very summery of watermelon but also tastes sweet.

Food

Oranges

During May I have rediscovered my love for oranges. My love hate relationship since childhood was based on a few things; their tough skin, acidy or bitter taste at times, and sticky hands after eating one. Sticky hands are my pet peeve so even as a child I was avoiding eating food that can leak, especially if I would not be nearby running water.  The secret is… Yes it only took me twenty something years to figure it out. Cut them rather than peel them. My citrusy affair is back on again.

    1. It's a small thing but it can be a nightmare! I just could not stop thinking about my sticky fingers and where can I wash them.

    1. It's really relaxing. I wish all dental practices had it instead of an usual smell they have. ;)

  3. I've just ordered a good bunch of essential oils online and I'm so excited to use them. So agree with you about pot lip balms - hate that residue that's left but The Body Shop lip balms are second to none!

  4. The watermelon lip balm sounds yummy. May years ago (back when I was in my teens) I used to always buy their Kiwi one which came in a small glass tub. The smell of it was ever so addictive.

    1. Oooo I never realised they used to have Kiwi lip balm. I am obsessed with their summer Mohito line - it's fantastic! Love, Iga
