Monday Mentionable's

Here we are on the second installment of 'Monday Mentionable's' and it's a body care item.  I have been buying this for about a decade (maybe more) and love it.  It is a body lotion called Shea Butter & Sesame Oil Body Balm:

As you can see it is from The Body Shop, from their Spa Wisdom line.  I adore it.  It really moisturizes your skin and leaves you feeling silky soft.  I received this lotion as a gift oh, so many years ago, and fell in love the first time I used it.  I have since gifted it to others and also have my children using it.  It is definitely a staple in our house, especially in these cold, skin-drying months.  

Speaking of dry skin and sesame oil (we were, weren't we?) I also highly recommend slathering sesame oil all over your body before you get in the shower.  Talk about soft skin... oh boy.  I learned this from Ayurveda and although I am not a strict abider I do love some of their teachings and get my sesame oil from an Ayurvedic site.  What I used to do, and need to get back in the habit of doing it, was massage sesame oil onto my skin before my shower and then when I got out of the shower I would put the above lotion on my body.  My skin has never been softer then when I did that.  I need to get back into it now that the weather has gotten colder.  

Happy moisturizing!
