Caldrea Essentials Collection

Recently I read an article in O magazine about how creating a real comforting space that appeals to you isn’t necessarily about redecorating but using and placing things in your home that welcome you and put you at ease regardless of whether or not it is the Pantone color of the year or you spent a ton of money.  For me, that involves scent.  I adore citrus scents but I was given a Caldrea Essentials Collection ($19.99) containing hand soap, lotion and a candle in BlackcurrantMint.  It is such a fresh, clean and light scent that it is a joy to use in my home.


The light blackcurrant fragrance is there as a top note but is made more lush by hints of plum, quince and the essential oils from grapefruit, orange and mint.  I light the candle after a rather fragrant meal and it helps clear the air in my kitchen.  The hand soap is a smooth, soft, clear gel that rinses easily and doesn’t dry out your hands and strip them of their oils.  The fragrance lingers in the bathroom a bit after you leave and I love smelling it when I enter the room.  The body lotion is a nice treat for my hands after cleaning up my kitchen too. The candle ($9.99) is by far my favorite because it burns cleans with no black build-up due to its vegetable wax and cotton and paper wick.  It is sustainable and natural.  Exactly what I want and need to feel good in my home.

The Caldrea Essentials Collection is available on the Caldrea website, Target and Amazon.com. Gorgeous looking they make excellent gifts for the home and a friend or co-worker.
