The lovely scent of vanilla is not the only beautiful reason to gravitate towards it. It turns out that the appealing botanical ingredient not only delights your senses…it can also repair the skin. Additionally, it’s sedating in nature, has anti-oxidant properties, helps lift somber mood, and is even quite the aphrodisiac!
Vanilla is formulated into many anti-aging treatments for its reparative and nourishing qualities. It’s used very frequently in creams that are extremely moisturizing for its hydrating properties as well as its amazing fragrant scent.
Today I wanted to share with you three of my favorite vanilla beauty and wellness products.
Korres Vanilla Guava Body Butter is a luxurious moisturizing body cream. It’s equipped with anti-aging properties and offers incredible hydration to dry skin. After use, my skin feels soft, firm and smells amazing.
I’m also crazy for Bliss Vanilla and Bergamot Body Buff. The superior body softening and exfoliating paste is formulated with vanilla bean pieces (along with shea butter and sweet almond) which not only smell incredible, it also promotes brilliant smooth and soft skin.
Lastly, I wanted to tell you about the most beautiful and fragrant candle in the world. It’s the most amazing gift you could ever give yourself or to anyone you love. Votivo Dalian Glass Candle Vanilla Bergamont Blossom is a soy blended hand poured candle encased in the most elegant hand cut glass jar you’ve ever seen. The fragrant candle boasts scents of lily, vanilla and cinnamon. It’s truly lovely…and oh so aromatic…you’ll want company to step into your house just to show it off. At around fifty dollars it’s pricey…but it burns for up to 60 hours and is worth every penny!
