We blogged about Gilchrist & Soames a few weeks ago which got us to thinking that we haven't placed an order with this Indianapolis based company in awhile. Mrs. WYA! ordered her old favorite the rich, luxurious, subtly scented Vitamin E Body Lotion. She noticed that there was a new line called BeeKind so she ordered a bottle of that body lotion too. It is extremely rare for her to buy a scented product sight-unseen (or rather, smell- unsmelled?) but she trusts Gilchrist & Soames. There's nothing like finding out you have your choice from several free samples once you start the check-out process to make you happy about patronizing a place as well. In this photo, the small bottle is the free sample that we chose, Essentiel Elements Wake Up Rosemary Body Lotion which has a stimulating (but not too strong) mint smell. Anyway, the order came and the smell of BeeKind is wonderful. It has extracts of clover, honey, chamomile, and calendula which can be hard to imagine without smelling it. The description that came to Mrs. WYA!'s mind upon first sniff was that it smells like a summer morning. On top of that, there are no parabens, phthalates, or artificial colors. Furthermore, a portion of the proceeds support honey bee and sustainable pollination research.
