Stop and Smell the Roses

      Growing up one of my favorite times was hanging out on a Sunny day with my Grandmother in her Rose Garden. I never quite knew how she managed to grow such big beautiful rose bushes. We would pick a handful and bring them inside and put them in a vase. They just seemed to light up the house and the smell was enchanting. Not to mention they always put a big smile on her face, which was the best part of the day.

   It’s no doubt this early childhood memory has made me a lover of this amazing flower. Whether its fresh roses in the house or a garden I encounter, it always brings me back to those summers and the happiness I felt

   Year after year I have found different products that have managed to capture the smell of roses. I thought I would share some great finds and products I love


I just can’t resist handcreams, ones that are ultra moisturizing that don’t leave a greasy feel. Recently I came across one that I absolutely love and it includes one of my favorite smells Roses! Crabtree & Evelyn “Hand Therapy Collection” in Rosewater is amazing. It’s formulated with macadamia nut oil, shea butter and rosewater that work together to leave the hands soft and smooth. It contains myrrh which helps to condition your cuticles and nails. I love putting this on before I go to bed, the smell drifts me off to sleep

   Recently a good friend gave me this wonderful little bottle of sweetness. This Face and Body Mist in “Rose Petals” from Passion Moon Potions is a great addition to your perfume collection. Its light for those days when you just need a little pick me up or on a warm Summer night heading out with friends.Check out their website at

  Last but not least are  these lip balms from the Rosebud Perfume Co. Everyone that knows me  knows how much I love a good lip balm. There’s nothing better than soft, supple, gorgeous, kissable lips. They have to have a great smell and the balms below definitely do. They all go along with the theme today – Roses!

The first one I want to tell you about is “Brambleberry Rose” . It has an amazing smell that combines berry, honey, vanilla, shea butter & brambleberry rose. It was created for Vivian the President of Rosebud Perfume Co., Inc. When I put it on it reminds me of Berry Suckers that I use to eat as a kid.

Next is the “Rosebud Salve”  which has a soft scent of Rose. This Salve is great as a lip balm but can be used for other purposes. Not only does it relieve chapped lips it can be used for skin irritations it is great for rough, dry cuticles. You don’t need a lot, a little goes a long way.

Last but not least is this delicious lip balm. Though it doesn’t smell like roses, I had to include it. It’s the “Strawberry” lip balm, and reminds me of 2 things as a kid. #1. Yummy candies that I use to eat on the front porch & #2. a Strawberry lip balm that came in a strawberry shaped container that I received with my Strawberry ShortCake Characters.

    Ooooh… LOVE this…. not only do I have memories of one of my grandma’s in her rose garden, my other grandma always wore Rose cream and perfume… this brought so many memories back. xo


    • I’m glad my post brought back thoughts of such a wonderful time spent with amazing women I’m on the search for the perfect red lipstick like my grandma use to wear, let me know if you have any favorites! xo


  2. This is a really good review of rose smelling options! I once had Crabtree & Evelyn do a hand scrub and moisturize on me at a tradeshow and it was good stuff. I’m curios to know whether they use real roses or just the scents to get it to smell that way? From what I’ve heard roses are good for the skin. One of our writers even wrote about flowers you can use in your bath. These products might greatly complement that article 🙂 does the box give any clues?


    • Thanks for checking out the blog, I’m glad you enjoyed the post. The hand therapy cream I posted about was “rosewater” and know that’s where the scent for that product comes from.
      Yes roses are good for the skin. Check out the salt scub that can be added into your bath from Salt Spring Soap works, in “Another rose leaves a beautiful glow”
      You can also get unscented salts for you back and add lavender flowers and such to create your own scent
      Hope this answers your question, feel free to message back with any more
