That one time in Costa Rica...
Three years ago, I took an amazing trip to Costa Rica with one of my very best friends, Allison. I can vividly remember swimming in the pool at our resort, nestled on the edge of the Rain Forrest in Quepos. It was an immersion of floral and fauna that I had never experienced before – monkeys hopping from tree to tree, exotic birds chirping away, and the most brilliant aroma of ylang-ylang flooding my senses. I remember swimming over to the edge of the pool, resting my arms upon the ledge of the pool, closing my eyes, taking a deep breath, and absorbing every bit of this experience on a cellular level. For me, it was profound. And this experience was 100% of the inspiration behind one of my favorite Wanderlust Organics products, our Ylang Ylang + Cedarwood Luxe Body Oil. I use this every day when I get out of the shower. A few pumps and your skin will smell and feel amazing for hours to come (not to mention, ylang-ylang has wonderful mood lifting properties and cedarwood is a fantastic skin soother). Even though I use it routinely, it still takes me back to that pool. Every. Single. Day.
The power of nature and the way we connect with it – on a sensory level – is at the core of everything I do. There’s a story like this behind every product I craft. There’s a moment I want to remember. There’s a connection I want to share. There’s a gift I want to give.
Wander with love,
