Lemon & Lime

I have quite the picky nose when it comes to scents but one that I am never failed to be drawn to is citrus. That sweet, tart and tangy smell is heaven to me. I recently acquired two new citrus delights that make the best combination to perk me up.

The first is the Burt's Bees Lemon & Vitamin E Bath & Body Oil, I have wanted this for such a long time now and recently caved in a Boots 3 for 2 offer on Burt's Bees. They're not a brand I am overly familiar with as I haven't tried much of anything from them before, not even their famous lip balms! But I picked this up randomly to have a sniff of one day and discovered it smelt exactly like my favourite ever L'Occitane Sweet Lemon soap, which was sadly discontinued a very very long time ago! Queue it's immediate addition to the wishlist. 
I also recently picked up a little bottle of lime essential oil to burn in an oil burner and it smells heavenly, so so fresh and crisp. I can't get enough of it.
My favourite combo has been to use these together in a foot bath (trying to get my feet presentable for summer, send help) a good glug of the super moisturising lemon oil makes my feet so soft but a few drops of the lime add a little something extra to that scent and I swear it lifts my spirits, citrus scents are just so happy!

Are you a citrus fiend too??


  1. The Burt's Bees bath oil looks AMAZING; I love bath oils, much lovelier than anything else I have tried. I bet the lime essential oil smells awesome too - such a fresh scent, especially for spring

  2. Burt's Bees are one of my favourite brands - their lip balms, cuticle butter (my favourite citrus product!) and body products are amazing! The oil sounds nice x

  3. This combo sounds so refreshing! Id love to try a body oil because I think they sound so nice! Great post xxx

  4. Oh that Burt's Bees bath oil - come to mama! Might need to invest in some of this stuff as baths dry my skin out like no other! T xx

  5. I love burt's bees, and I love body oils, so i'm definitely going to check this out next time I'm shopping! x

  6. I agree, citrus scents always cheer me up as well! The Neals Yard Remedies Bee Lovely range is one of my favs so I'm interested to see what this bath oil from Burts Bees is like x
