I'm in love...

And I thought you should know about it!  I recently used Raw Olive's Pink Grapefruit Organic Sugar Scrub and fell head-over-heels.  It's a very serious love affair.  First, the scent is quite refreshing.  Second, it had the perfect consistency (read: more scrub, less oil or stickiness).  Third, when i was finished, not only did I feel sufficiently smooth and exfoliated, but my skin felt soft.  Like, really soft.  I didn't even feel I needed to apply lotion.  My skin felt as though I had been sipping Limoncello in a vat of freshly pressed olive oil on a Tuscan hillside.  Seriously.
And its no wonder!  All of Raw Olive's products are organic, raw, and pure.  Elizabeth Voss, the maker of this wonderful product, and local Baltimorean, says "You can skip the moisturizer after this treat!"  But, I didn't really believe her until I tried.  Voss makes a whole line of natural body products.  Motivated to save her family from exposure to harmful chemicals found in supposed "natural" body products, Voss went to her kitchen and concocted yummy potions from ingredients found in her cupboards.  She explains, "Considering that 80% of what you put on your body ends up in your body, food grade ingredients make sense!"  She uses organic and food grade ingredients, including cold-pressed olive oil, raw sugar and raw honey.
Next, I plan to try Raw Olive's Dead Sea Salt and Epson Salt Muscle Soak/Scrub.  Yes, I still have swollen ankles!  And I will be in a wedding in less than 2 months.  I have a feeling this soak is just what I need to reduce the puffiness!  I'm completely sold!  It is made of dead sea salt, epson salt (highly recommended for those will aches, pains, bruising and swelling), unrefined, organic coconut oil, cold-pressed olive oil, raw honey and pure essential oils "to revitalize your muscles, skin and senses."  I'm so ready!  If you aren't a geriatric like myself (30 with the ankles and clumsiness of 85 year old), might I recommend some of the other oh-so-delish scents: Butterbeer, Beach, Coconut Rose, Lavender Vanilla, Peppermint Mocha Latte, Birthday Cake, Bourbon Vanilla, Lemon Zest, Margarita, or Candied Ginger.
I'm so infatuated, I might have to take another shower!  Elizabeth was kind enough to offer my readers a discount!  Use coupon code PROMO20 for 20% off your purchase in her Etsy shop.  You can find Raw Olive on Facebook.  I highly recommend giving her products a try.  I bet you will have an amazing glow for your wedding!  Or everyday!
