Today on Brain Candy Friday, I thought we’d talk about bath lotions and gels. What are your favorite brands? What are your favorite scents? I used to use a LOT of Bath and Body Works but I can’t do that any more, so I finally found some fragrance oils that aren’t in a nut carrier oil, and I bought some fragrance free lotion and soap, and I’m making my own. Here’s hoping I can have some of the yummy pumpkin scented ones I loved. I do have and use a lot of Philosophy’s bath gels, but most of their lotions I either don’t care for the scent or they have stuff in them I can’t use.
So what are your go-to scents for the seasons? What brands do you use? Share them with us!

Unfortunately most of the scents that I love from Bath and Bodyworks are not available in Australia but I did find a company out of San Francisco that ships everywhere by the name of Native. They have been around for some time and I love their scents! Not overpowering and they take recycling very seriously! In a couple of years, they will be packaging their shower gels in non plastic containers, another plus! Also lavender products from Lil’s Lavender, light and gentle scents. Their hand sanitizer is very gentle on the hands and leaves a light scent behind.
My favorite for those autumn scents is Haus of Gloi, especially if you want body scrubs and lotion. I also love BPL and Solstice Scents!
I LOVE Bath & Body Works! I’m lucky that I can use their products, but I can’t do the “perfume” scents. I do either fruit or flowers, though I do like some of the “beach” & “fresh” scents, too. I only use the body washes a few times a week, & use my Dove soap the rest of the time. I use the body lotions or creams a little more often. I was very happy when I could finally go back into the store (standing in line was TOTALLY worth it)! I found Fresh Cut Lilacs, Dance In The Rain, & The Perfect Peony. One of my all time faves is Night Blooming Jasmine! I also love the Rose and Rose Water & Ivy scents. We started using Rose Water & Ivy Wallflowers. I like Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Vampire Blood for Autumn/Halloween; Vanilla Bean Noel, Twisted Peppermint for Christmas. They come up with limited edition scents for both times of the year that I sometimes like, too.
No real seasonal scents, as I will use whatever I like all year around and not consider it seasonal. My fave is actually the ShiKai brand hand and body lotion in vanilla. It’s not strongly scented, which my family can’t stand, or is allergic to. It’s organic and doesn’t have the one ingredient I can’t have due to a genetic condition. The other I use is Avalon Organics, lemon only. It’s also not strongly scented and lacks the one ingredient.
