“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” -F.Scott Fitzgerald
The beautiful souls that make up the R.& L., (Robin and Lynn) behind the name of this company are two of the most creative and inspiring woman that I know. They just keep coming up with these superb brews and potions that get me so excited that it’s hard to put into words. I’m encouraging you to wait just a little while longer while they get these wonderful products all set and ready to ship. Fall is my most favorite season of all and this limited edition box is packed full of coziness and olfactory loveliness. You don’t want to miss this one. Trust me!
What a surprise your nose will discover in the Ritual No. 2 natural perfume oil. This is the second addition to the soon to be released Denver-inspired fragrance line. Ritual No.2 is a gourmand’s dream come true. With a top note of chocolate (yes, really) and a perfect dry down following with wafts of cardamom, cognac, bitter almond as well as other proprietary blends. As I write this I keeping get distracted by sniffing my wrists. It’s so seriously unique with hints of spice and cacao absolute and it oozes sexiness.Truth be told, here are actual pieces of the herbs and spices floating around in the bottle. So be sure to shake it before you apply. A little goes a long way. Two drops shared on your wrist, neck and even your hair is enough. I’m warning you, you will be immediately addicted to this delicious scent.
REST YOUR BONES BATH SOAK
Upon opening the smell is divine, immediately calming and yet subtle. The ingredients are: epsom salts, sea salt, magnesium flakes, baking soda, rosemary leaves, juniper berries, ginger root, arnica flower, powdered schisandra berry, powdered marshmallow root, powdered linden flower, powdered rose, powdered nettle, meadowfoam seed oil, and essential oils of spruce, fir, cypress, lavender and ravensara. This has the nicest consistency and calming essential oil benefits for a bath soak! It’s equal part adrenal replenishing as well as an immune boosting treat for your body. Robin and Lynn recommend using this for stress relief or at the first sign of getting sick. And again, there are actual juniper berries and rosemary leaves visible in this bath treat. “Me time”…check!
LAVENDER + FRANKINCENSE CUTICLE OIL
I just applied a few drops to my cuticles with this light and non-greasy formula. Five seconds later I’m back to typing! I don’t usually get overly impressed with cuticle oils, but this special quick absorbing formula just got my full attention. Made with: apricot kernel oil, rice bran oil, avocado oil and jojoba infusion of calendula, horsetail and rosemary, castor oil, rosemary extract, vitamin e, frankincense and lavender essential oils.This multi-tasking creation is moisturizing as well as healing for cuticles and even dry skin patches. Also perfect for taming fly-aways.
AUNTIE ELDER’S IMMUNE BREW
I’m an admitted fan of everything I’ve ever tried by R.L. Linden. But this tea has moved up to the top five favorites! When I began writing this review I made a decoction of 1 Tbs.of the tea with one cup of water and simmered on the stove for 15 minutes. Ingredients: elderberries, cinnamon chips, orange peel, vanilla bean, oregon grape root, cardamom seeds and rose hips. After straining the tea I added a tsp. of raw honey. My kitchen smelled like an Autumn infusion from the beautiful berries,spices and flowers releasing all their aroma and goodness into the spring water. This warming, immune boosting blend has won my heart. They also include in this limited edition box specific directions for creating a syrup from this tea blend. I’m thinking what a great gift to make for family and friends for the holidays.
“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”
