Mmm... My Hands Smell of Mint

I've been accused of living through my nose.

It's no secret: I can smell you a mile down the road. I notice when you change your deodorant or perfume or cologne ( do you really have to wear that stuff... really? ) — and I can generally tell the difference between natural scents and petrochemical ones — and I like that I have such a sensitive sense of smell. Because of this, though, I really don't care much for scented any thing... not candles, not fabric softener... nothing. And that's mostly because these scents are all artificial: brazenly so.

So it's nice to come across personal care products that use natural scents.

That's why I was so happy to find Herban Essentials... and I was especially happy to see that they offered wet wipes. Wet wipes are a necessary evil ( I keep a stash in my car's glove compartment ). They're necessary because I hate sticky fingers. They're evil because they smell like a cosmetics counter. Ew.

But no more: I ordered a sample pack and they arrived today... mmm very nice.

: )

And you know what's nicer? This is a little company with thoughtful employees, who sent me some extra goodies when FedEx lost my first order. How cool is that?

So anyway... my hands now smell of mint... mmm.

I would worry that someone might say I smelt of elderberries.
