Valentines Gift Idea: Serene Bath & Body Review and Giveaway



Serene Bath & Body was the vision of its owner and founder, Niki Fountain. As a young woman, Niki, like many girls her age, found herself with a poor body image and did not treat her body with the love and respect it deserved. One surefire way to lift her spirits when feeling down was shopping for and using sumptuous soaps and lotions. Nothing felt better than indulging in a little luxury (even if, while in college, the checkbook didn't agree). The act of bathing with a wonderfully smelling soap and finishing with a silky smooth lotion created a sense of peace and well being. Through the years Niki was able to overcome her body issues and realized that everyone, especially young women, needed to learn to care for and respect their bodies- physical and otherwise. She wanted them to experience the same indulgence and feeling of serenity that she felt while caring for her body. This is what inspired Serene Bath & Body. She wanted to create products that would help young girls and women learn to love their bodies and treat them well by using high quality products that nourish the body, the mind, the spirit and the soul. Serene Bath & Body was founded in 2005.

Serene Bath & Body generously provided me with a fantastic gift basket! In the adorable peppermint candy cane print hat box, there was Persephone's Wish Organic Bar Soap in Rosemary, Mint & Clove and Milk & Honey, Celestial Farm's Liquid Foaming Soap in Eve's Garden, Celestial Farm's Body Lotion in Eve's Garden, Persephone's Wish Lip Balm in Rosemary & Mint, Premium rose quartz crystal tea light candle holder and the Fabulously Adorable Serene Rubber Ducky.

I absolutely loved every thing that was in this gift basket! I'd have to say my favorite scent and item was the Celestial Farm's Body Lotion in Eve's Garden. Discover Love with this seductive blend of fruits and florals. This delectable lotion is filled with the light aroma of jasmine, notes of green apple & just a hint of lily of the valley. These scents, along with the addition of a charged rose quartz crystal, help one to balance & intertwine earthly desires with the higher planes of love. I love the fruity appley smell! Yum! I can't stop smelling my arms and hands! I love the fact that it's a light smell that not everyone within a 30 foot radius will smell. Its just so delicious!
