When I actually BUY something

One of the really cool things about our jobs here at The Herb Companion is our access to samples of great bodycare products, herbal remedies, cosmetics, soaps -- a steady, sweet-smelling stream of thoughtfully created products anyone would be thrilled to use. It's such an embarrassment of riches sometimes we get a bit complacent about actually spending our hard-earned cash on things like shampoo, soap, toothpaste and lotion.

However, given the many choices we have, you know we really like the product when we decide we to actually spend our own money on it.

At the top of my shopping list this week is Dr. Hauschka's Macadamia and Orange shampoo. I love the luster and texture it gives my hair -- and if I'm not wide awake by the time I step in the shower each morning, the fragrance of this shampoo is my morning wake-up call. As with all Dr. Hauschka's products, this shampoo is nice and natural, made with safe, organic, Biodynamic ingredients. On the other hand, Dr. Hauschka's Conditioner with Jojoba and Marsh Mallow was almost too rich for my hair. I think it would be great for damaged or color treated hair. Maybe I used too much -- it's pretty thick, so a little dab'll do you. At any rate, it made my hair feel a little gummy, so I've stuck with the Macadamia and Orange shampoo and have been happily  satisfied.

Dr. Hauschka is one of those companies I've come to trust completely over the past several years. Just about everything they offer is absolutely topnotch. (If you try one of their products and this turns out not to be the case, please let me know.) So far, I've been pleased with the consistent high quality of everything from lip gloss to facial toner. Made with ingredients like rose petals, carrots and shea butter, the cosmetics are almost good enough to eat.
