My Description & Thoughts:
This scrub is fantastic! It’s unique, as I’ve never tried a body scrub before containing marigold (used interchangeably with Calendula–as mentioned above). It’s also wonderfully fragrant and has the IDEAL grittiness to it. I’ve found that It is even gentle enough to use on young skin, as my stepdaughter, at 5, loves the “organic product spa treatment” I give her during bath time. Used with a loofah, this scrub could become and even stronger exfoliant, if needed.
The smell of this scrub is so lovely and light. Though it is called “Marigold Magic,” the zest of the orange essential oil comes through to me the most. The combination of the calendula and the orange make a pleasant, florally, citrusy aroma in the shower.
Like I mentioned about the texture, this scrub is tough enough for areas with common build up (i.e. feet or armpits) but is also gentle enough to use on the entire body.
I’d recommend this scrub to anyone with an affinity these scents or simply anyone looking to spoil themselves a bit with organic goodness!

My Description & Thoughts:
Just like I found the body scrub to be virtually perfect, I think this body butter is wonderful. This dense formula has the capability to quench even the driest of skin. It is made of ingredients that are readily absorbed by the skin–allowing it to leave skin soft and hydrated, rather than goopy and dirty feeling.
I love the duo of calendula and orange in this body butter, and think it would make a perfect pairing for during and post-shower. With how rich and moisturizing the scrub is, you don’t need much of the body butter afterwards!
I think that both of these products are unique in their usage of Calendula (in a body scrub & butter) and I would recommend them to anyone looking for such a product. The subtle, flowery, zip of this aroma is sure to please the scent preferences of most.
