Today I'd like to share with you a newly launched range from Urban Rituelle, the Flourish Organics, which is available in two blends Soothing Vanilla and Uplifting Lemongrass. I've put the Botanical Bounty Gift set from the Uplifting Lemongrass to the test, which would also make for the perfect Mother's Day Gift Idea..

As the name suggests, the products have been made with certified organic ingredients where possible, along with a blend of botanical extracts and pure essential oils. I also love that there are no added artificial colours, fragrances, mineral oils sulfates, parabens, or harsh chemicals.

The Botanical Bounty Gift Set include an Organic Hand & Body Wash as well as an Organic Hand & Body Lotion, which comes in a small drawstring gift bag.

The Flourish Organic Hand & Body Wash has been made with certified organic aloe vera and ginseng on help revitalise and nourish the skin, while certified organic calendula soothe and gently cleanse the skin. It also contains Australian dessert lime extract to refresh and hydrate and vitamin A to rejuvenate the skin.

The Flourish Organic Hand & Body Lotion contains organic aloe vera, wheat germ oil, camellia tea oil to hydrate and revitalise the skin, as well as organic papaya extract, shea butter and calendula repair and protect the skin. These ingredients are also rich in vitamins A, E and C to provide antioxidants to the skin.

The Hand & Body Wash comes in a huge dark green pump bottle with a timber 'collar' while the Hand & Body Lotion comes in a huge white bottle with green writing, and it also has the timber bottle.

I have to admit that I thought that these bottles were so nice and stylish that it was a shame to 'hide' them away in my shower in our ensuite for nobody but my husband and myself to see, so I decided to put them on full display in our downstairs powder room, and use the Hand & Body Wash solely as a hand wash, and the Hand & Body Lotion, solely as a hand lotion.

And oh have I been enjoying using them, and even my husband has been making comments to on how nice they are both to look at and use, something he otherwise rarely does.

The Hand wash gently cleanses the hands without drying them out, but still I like to use a small pump of hand lotion afterwards to ensure my hands do not dry out, and also to extend the beautiful lemongrass scent. It is so fresh and uplifting, and has just a touch of the ginseng lingering in the background. I know that I've mentioned this before, but citrus scents remain my favourite, and these products means that I enjoy washing my hands, also for the 100th during the day (the joy of two little kids both in nappies!), , although it also means that I cannot stop smelling my gorgeous scented hands after I've washed them and used the lotion.
I also love that it is a very unisex scent, unlike many other scented soaps and lotions which often tend to be very floral.
