I purchased this as a skin moisturizer and after shave. It's a great product. Excellent fragrance makes my skin feel wonderful.
I hoped there would be more cedar coming into the smell but it is barely there. So I get a lot of "you smell like Christmas! " comments. I work hard all day and want something to help mask body odor and oddly enough this reacts poorly with my smelly body. I likely won't use it.
I admit I bought it for the packaging as I need to stop getting products in plastic!! Do you take back any containers for recycle, and can we purchase some of the other lotions in non plastic? I noticed you offered glass for some lotions on the island. I love your products but need to step away from the plastic, unless I can recycle the containers to you to refill?
Great lotion for my dry hands in the winter. I'll also use this lotion as an aftershave every morning. Nice scent...reminds me of being out in the woods!
While my 84-year old mother lay dying, I rubbed some of my newly-arrived Spruce Cedar lotion on her hands and feet. In her last concious moments, the scent made her smile, and she whispered, "It's like Christmas again." I reapplied it over the next six hours, and she died, a smile on her face because the scent brought back all her memories of the many delightful family Christmases we had enjoyed over the years. Making lotions and soaps is a small thing, but so precious in ways most of us never think of. Thank you so much for all your wonderful artistry and for the joy you gave my mom in her last days. I use this ;lotion now, and it brings back those bittersweet moments with her.
I bought this for my huband and he loves it! It smells nice and doesn't sting his skin after a shower.
The scent of this lotion is so natural and heavenly! It smells like the forest, rich and layered. I purchased it for my husband, but have kept it for myself. Beautiful texture, and a great moisturizer, will order again!
You are asking me to comment on the Spruce and Cedar product I just received. Sorry it takes me so long to get back to you, Chris, but I am the opposite of most people where computer technology is concerned and don't sit down with it very often. But - in response to your request about this product - - - I use it for a hand lotion for myself because I love the smell of it. I sits beside my reading chair so I can moisten my hands now and then - and - smell like the mountain forest I used to live on in the White Mts. of Az, up at 8,000 feet. A heavenly scent, even in a bottle - thank you very much for letting me enjoy those moments so much again.
I also want to thank you for your 'Aches and Pains' oil. As always, the quality of it is 'delicious'. I began using it on my 80 year old shoulder in the morning, that is not happy with me sleeping on it, and it was magic, very quickly. After using it for that purpose, I realized one day that the morning arthritic condition of my fingers went away as well, in the application to the shoulder. That was the real miracle awareness. Soooo - I thank you once again for your wonderful products .
You also had asked me to comment on the 'new' Jasmine body lotion, since you added the citrus element to it. I did respond to that when you asked me to before but as I have been using it for some time now, I will just add another 'well done' for the upgrade of my favorite product of yours. It adds a delicate lift to the already appreciated jasmine that I have enjoyed for some time now.
Thanks so much for doing such good work. I am blessed to be able to be on the receiving end of it. Love and blessings. Lori Dunbar
