A Unique Collaboration
Black Pearl Botanicals
By Gigi Brewer
From Placitas, New Mexico come
Black Pearl Botanicals. The creators explain the name
"Spawned in the
azure lagoons of atolls in the South Pacific, black pearls are
the magnificent result of a unique collaboration between humans
and mother nature; so too are our products."
I started with their Indulgence Bath Oil ($10 for a
1-ounce bottle,) which certainly lived up to its name. A few
drops in my bath water was all it took to fill the room with the
delicious scent of macadamia nuts, apricot, geranium-rose,
sandalwood, orange flower, lavender, and rosewood.
bath oils which promise much but deliver little, Black Pearl's
Indulgence Bath Oil at the end of a long day is sure to soothe
and delight. My only caution is to use it sparingly - too much
will leave a residue in your tub.
Anyone who has lived near the ocean knows that long walks on
sandy shores will smooth rough spots on your feet. Black Pearl's
Rejuvenation Body Scrub ($11.75 for 8oz) serves
the same purpose. Extra fine sea salt, citrus peel and clay
powders control the rough, dry spots that tend to appear on
hands, knees, feet and elbows when the drying winds of winter
begin to blow.
It will also soothe those rough spots with
Vitamin E, macadamia nut and apricot oils. Its
rejuvenating scent comes from a delightful mixture of essential
oils of pink grapefruit, lime, juniper berry, cypress, linaloe
berry, rosewood, rosemary, geranium-rose, nutmeg and cardamom.

between his or her hands and enjoy!
