Caerlon Gardens
T.J. Currey
By Melissa Miller




With a background in alternative medicine and dermatology, T.J. Currey created Caerlon Gardens. Her entertaining website offers many artful products including unique, fragrant and TJ Currey beautifully packaged soaps.

Among my favorites are The Bees Knees, Caerlon Gardenís most requested soap, which is a blend of oatmeal, turmeric, coconut milk and honey, Loco Kokomo, which contains over 60% coconut with an exotic tropical coconut scent, and Cranberry Cooler, which has a crisp and refreshing cranberry aroma that Currey says is a wonderful morning wake-up lather.

Changing Tides Soap
is made for women only. Itís formulated with evening primrose oil, black seed oil, wild yam roots, oatmeal, chai tea leaves, shea butter, coconut milk, dong quai, chaste tree, and Siberian ginseng. This nourishing bar is scented with grapefruit, lemon, lime, cucumber, jasmine, and pineapple scent and should provide any woman with an added boost when needed. These soaps sell for between $4 and $5 a bar.

My favorite product is the delicious MochaLotion ($6 for 2.5oz.), a solid body moisturizer loaded with butters and oils, packaged in a convenient swivel-up container. Itís available in an eclectic mix of fragrances including Earth Mother (patchouli), Sugar and Spice, Sunflower Springs, Minted Mocha, A Wise Woman (sage and grapefruit), Flower (geranium essential oil), Jamaican Rum and Celtic Karma.

Possibly the most exotic scented salt scrub Iíve ever tried is Medieval Sea Salt Body Scrub ($5 for 6oz.), with dead sea salts and a mind-clearing essential oil blend of clove bud, lemongrass and patchouli. The scent is heavenly; aside from rubbing it on my body I would stick my nose in the jar and take a whiff to give myself a quick transcendent moment.

Another must-have from Caerlon is TJís LipGoo ($2 for .15oz.), a slightly tinted, all-natural moisturizing lip balm in a tube. Try this in the Margarita scent for a fruity scented lip treat.

Caerlon Gardens also carries Glycerin Soap Lips ($1 per ďKissĒ bar), Scented Rock Crystals ($4 for a bag) and Tub Teas in a variety of fragrances ($1 for 2 teas).
