From My Family to Yours | Smell Goods '98™

I thought of the many ways I could express how much you meant to me/us this year.  But it all summed up into two simple yet powerful words.

Winning the Battle Against Pubescent Odor | Smell Good Spa™

Ack! *Cough* Eww! "What is that smell?!!!"

Moms, remember that day She busted through the door, coming in from playing outside?  An unfamiliar odor passed in front of your nose, but you hunched your shoulders and thought: it stinks, but maybe it's nothing - she'll wash up.  Don't get tricked.  Puberty is here and it's live & direct.  "What happened to my sweet smelling child, the one that could wear those same play-clothes for 3 days straight before they hit the laundry?!" She's still there.  Instructions on how to manage hygiene and grabbing fresh play-clothes, daily, will get you both through.

I remember my moment with the Warrior Princesses!  It wasn't a pretty thing.  My daughters are athletic too, so you KNOW.... When the WPs were toddlers/young children, I taught them how to manage their hygiene.  Teaching them that good hygiene is one of the cues to having self-respect.  We talked about what puberty is, why it is, and that it was just waiting for its moment.  Along with my friendly-reminders - remember to give more attention to that area - I'm glad we have the right arsenal, deodorant and effective body care,  to help us through this battle.  Our cuddle time is still pleasant. :o)

Winning the war by annihilating pubescent odor, would be going against nature, and actually I embrace my daughters' healthy transitions.  For now, I'll settle for winning the battle.

Moms, what are you doing to win the battle against pubescent odor?

You are welcome here!  For the next 3 days, you can shop our No Lead Time category.  There's a 25% sale going on, and better yet, we'll ship it to you that same day.  *High5*

P.S. Yesterday I sent this newsletter to our subscribers, and blasted it on social media.  After doing so I noticed one misspelled word.  After silently reading over my work 5 times, and out loud 5 times, how is that possible! Ugh!  I hope folks are forgiving.  That misspelled word is corrected in what you are about to read.

Fragrance and the Heighten Love Affair | Smell Good Spa™

The energy that surges through my body when his hand touches the small of my back... Non-verbal, spirit-connected "I love you" lingering in silence, as I'm pulled more into his embrace... Stimulated olfactory senses coaxing him towards my pulse points....

Why would I talk about something so sensual here?  I am a woman.  I am a wife.  Woman-to-woman; wife-to-wife, having a sweet, body aroma that his senses refuse to ignore, heightens your love affair - enhancing the live good, feel good, smell good experience.

Every season, I select a personal IT scent from our fragrance collection.  12 Tribes customized in Marinade, IT, and it soon became the Snuggle Scent.  I don't know - China Doll is on the list for winter, but the way things are going, 12 Tribes might have to stay around for awhile. *Wink*

Having a love affair with a man you trust explicitly - beautiful.  Pheromones intertwined with your signature fragrance oil, as a bouquet of attraction - priceless.

So what do you have Him snuggling up to these days?

{Week 5} There's Always 1 Nut in the Family :: What's In It? Series | Smell Good Spa™

A large percentage of ingredients in bath & body care are transdermal. Overtime, those ingredients will enter into the bloodstream.  What's In It? Series is a 5-week series informing you of the ingredients used in our recipes. Helping women (and their families) to live good, feel good and smell good, wholesomely.

{Week 5} Sweet Almond Oil (INCI: Prunus Amygdalus)

Sweet Almond Oil is extracted from the delicate, white flowers of the almond tree.  A native of the Middle East, this nutty gem is a relative of the peach tree. 

Why We Use It:

  • Conditioning Emollient: Rich in oils; omega-9 and omega-6, Sweet Almond Oil is a go-to for conditioning dry, tough skin.  This emollient works double as a humectant, preventing moisture loss. 
Sweet Almond Oil is found to contain more olein than olive oil, making it an excellent remedy for relieving dry, itchy and inflamed skin.

This concludes the 5-week series.  My hope is that you'll welcome our products into your home, and use them with even more confidence.  

Be whole,
