Aromas from the kitchen, scent from the boudoir, flowers from the garden: fragrances everywhere....As a baker girl/chef, it is no surprise that I am seduced by scent. In addition to working with fragrance and flavors in the bakery and kitchen, I also dabble in candle making, personal and custom perfumes, and hand milled soaps as well as home fashioned incense and potpourri. I am happy to share what I also sleuth out in the way of the best in special and unique scents (in toiletries, perfumes, aromatherapy oils, soaps, cosmetics, and incense) for my BetterBaking.com visitors. Sometimes, I stray to related niceties, such as books on the subject, or chimes, and other softer-side-of-lifestyle products. Here is where you will my reviews and special discoveries on scent, perfumes, soaps, candles, home fragrance, cosmetics, even men's scents, and sometimes a recipe or two for potpourri, homemade cologne, vanilla or lavender sleep pillows. Scent of a Baker is an oasis for your senses. You can also check out more of my fragrance reviews at http://www.mistressofscents.com/
Here's where you find some more chat on lotions, oils and treatment products. Some are repeated in cosmetics but some of my favorites are right here.
Proudly Canadian, nothing cures rough skin, scratchy winter ankles and hands or cuts and kitchen burns than this legendary ointment (hey, Shania Twain first mentioned it!)
Why do we love this? It smells...agreedable and works like a charm. It is a clear ointment that goes on like a dream, softening, repairing skin - turning it into silk. I recommend putting it on hands and feet at night, and then wearing latex gloves (for the hands) and wrapping feet in plastic wrap and covering with breathable cotton socks. One or two nights of this intense Bag Balm treatment and it's like you visited a spa and came out with baby skin. Nothing beats this stuff - it's one of Canada's (cows!) best kept secrets. It's one of your skin care's essentials.
