Little Batch Botanicals {review+giveaway}




Time to treat your body from Little Batch Botanicals!








Little Batch Botanicals is a sweet shop full of wholesome goodies to pamper yourself. Made from scratch using all natural and earth-friendly products, you can feel good buying from the shop and knowing it is of highest quality. Find everything from lip balms to perfume oils to luxurious hand and body creams, ready for gift giving (or a little treat for yourself!) And don't miss out on the soaps -- they don't last long in the shop, so get them while you can! (Oatmeal and Honey anyone?)






Let me talk about the delicious flavors you can choose from! Mandarin Orange, Gingermilk, Green Tea and Cucumber, New Jersey Cranberry, and I could go on and on with the yummy varieties. Trust me, you'll be impressed with the selection, and I bet you'll find more than one that sounds like a must-have. Everybody loves a bath and body gift, so I'm thinking a perfect Mother's Day present or for that special bride-to be!







Jennifer sent me a heavenly lip balm in Peppernilla from Little Batch Botanicals. Yum. It has a perfect mix of flavor and soothing beeswax. She even has a delicious sounding lip balm trio for Easter baskets: White Chocolate, Jelly Bean, and Chocolate Bar. Let me tell you about the hand cream -- wonderful! Not greasy, but completely moisturizing that actually stays on. I LOVED the Lemongrass Coconut that I tried. Jennifer knows her stuff when it comes to creating cold process soaps and makes all her goodies with small batches, so you know your product is going to be fresh and free of sulfates and other chemicals that can be hard on your skin. Soap making has been in her family for five generations, so she is really just following in her great great grandmother's footsteps.




I love her idea of customizing labels for these lip balms! What a great idea for baby or wedding showers, or even for a business to give a little gift for their customers! Possibilities are endless! Did I mention her lip balms come in the delightful oval tubes? No rolling off your table, and a perfect slim shape that fits right in your pocket. Aren't these a match made in heaven? Little Batch Botanicals also offers a special of a free lip balm with the purchase of 3 perfumes or creams!





And the sweet Jennifer has offered a Little Batch Botanicals giveaway of her own here for a lucky reader of The Ivy Twines! Winner will get to choose their favorite lip balm! Lucky duck!

  20. My favorite item is Morning Joe Cold Process Vegan Coffee Soap- this sounds like the perfect soap to keep by the kitchen sink to wash away onion/garlic smells and have a energizing coffee aroma instead.
