There are a lot of things that I love about organic products, but one of my very favourite reasons for choosing organic when possible is the smell. A chemically-created scent is very hit-and-miss for me; some smell great while others make me feel dizzy and nauseous. But the natural scents of organic products never make me feel ill and, even better, consistently smell absolutely amazing!
So, when I was recently introduced to Avalon Organics, an organic line of hair and body care products, and the company recommended I start my testing by opening the bottles and taking a whiff, I knew I was in for a treat. Sure enough, the delicious scent had me captivated and I couldn’t wait to get into the bathroom to test every single product.
The Avalon Organics products I received included Shampoo and Conditioner in Clarifying Lemon, Glycerin Hand Soap in Revitalizing Peppermint, Bath & Shower Gel in Rejuvenating Rosemary and Hand & Body Lotion in Nourishing Lavender. I especially loved the citrus scent of the haircare products. Since I usually shower in the morning, having the bright lemon scent to help energize my senses was wonderful. And the clarifying formula is ideal for removing product buildup on hair for great natural shine.
The lotion was another personal favourite and since I’ve often mentioned how much I love lavender, I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the scent was a big part of why I loved this lotion! Lavender is my absolute favourite herbal aroma and a go-to when I’m feeling stressed or anxious. Smoothing this lotion onto my skin was a Zen-like experience and sometimes when I was feeling a little frazzled during the day, I’d use it on my hands just so that I could enjoy the scent while I worked!
