Treasured Christmas Gifts

I am a big fan of all beautiful smelling products.
My favorite aromatherapy oil would have to be 'YUZU'.
Yuzu is a kind of Japanese citrus - a cross between a
lemon, lime and orange.

This Christmas, I was overwhelmed to discover
that TM had actually gone to the trouble of
walking into an airport shop to buy my xmas gift,
rather than doing his usual 'in-flight shopping' thing.

He really did well this year and his little gifts
are just the kind of thing I would have bought
for myself.

A trio of beautiful Jurlique handcreams.
(Lavendar, citrus and rose).
I am saving my favorite - citrus - for last.
Rose is divine. So subtle and gentle -
like rubbing rose petals into my hands.
The trio of hand creams have joined
my birthday gift received from a friend
last year - the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel.
I apply this in the mornings, before I settle
down to work.

The other gift was a pack of 4 Japanese soaps,
with lovely aromas, including
honey, aloe vera,
my beloved Yuzu and rice bran.

Here's to a sweet smelling year..!
