Or the “I wish the internet had scratch-n-sniff” edition!
As wht readers know, even though the weather here in Southern California is not cooperating, I am dreaming of autumn. We’ve got a good month or two of hot, humid and sunny days until we’ll begin to feel just a hint of nip in the air. So to get me in a fall state of mind, this 4 for Friday I turned to Etsy for a few goodies to add the scent of autumn to these Indian Summer days.
• My favorite fruit, apples, will soon be in season and here’s a way to add the fresh picked scent to your kitchen or bath. The Orchard Soap is infused with the scents of dry leaves, hay, crisp evening air and sweet apples. The handmade bar is crafted with high-quality, good for skin ingredients including coconut, palm and safflower oils. $5.50
• Feel the nip of fall while soaking away stress with these all natural Cranberry and Fig Bath Salts. Packaged in a glass tube with a natural cork, the soaks are a mixture of fine salt crystals (which dissolve instantly) and larger crystals (that dissolve slowly) without additional colorants added. Perfect for those with allergies to dyes as well as a stain-free tub. $6.50
• Carry the season with you everywhere you go with this trio of Autumn Scented Lip Balms. Perk up your day and your lips with these balms in the scents of Honey & Clove, Mulling Spice and Pumpkin Pie. These hand crafted balms are made to order to ensure freshness and promise a smooth and creamy consistency. $8 for the trio
• Finally, fill your home with the scent of fresh baked pie with this Spiced Pumpkin Soy Wax Candle. This hand poured candle mixes the scent of fresh pumpkin with creamy butter, sugar and toasted spice notes. Crafted in small batches with domestically grown soy wax and essential-oils without dyes or additives, the candle is packaged in an adorable apothecary style jar with a hand-stamped label. $15
