First, I know it is a CT no-no to try and market one's own products and/or services on CT, but I want to brag on another CTer's wonderful products--Mermaid's Bath products by Kitchenwitch. And no, she has no idea I am bragging on her! :-)


In an attempt to "female-ize" our predominantly bachelor-padish home in Southern California, I ordered a wonderful assortment of natural bath products from Kitchenwitch.


OH MY--TOO COOL! First, my 10 year-old DD thinks these bath products are the "MOST AWESOME thing EVER!" Bath confetti in every shape and fragrance--PERFECT for little girls--and soap petals that look like real rose petals (perfect for a guest bath).


For me, the self-professed bath junkie--a natural sea sponge containing a Ginger-Fig soap, bath pearls for a truly relaxing bath, GORGEOUS soaps resembling gemstones, a beautiful soap with an expertly carved mermaid on it, and finally, a spritz lavender aromawater to get rid of any remaining male-ness!


Did I mention I am a bath junkie!?! Anyway, thanks to Kitchenwitch for these wonderful products and for zapping a little of the testosterone out of the bachelor pad! :-)

Isn't the ginger-fig really sexy??? I love it.  Next time, try my favorite, Rosemary Mint.  I love it  - it's my thing that I order over and over.  Fresh and invigorating.


Max, my 7 year old, LOVES the bath confetti.  He's convinced she makes it just for him! (G)

Well, I must admit (sheepishly admitting my bath-junkiness!), I also tried the rosemary-mint lotion and shower gel and agree, they are great.


And yes, the ginger fig is VERY sexy!


I must admit, I called RuthAnn in a bit of a panic a few days prior to flying out and requested "clean-not-too-girly-scents." I didn't want to COMPLETELY upset the bachelor pad in one fail swoop! But over time...  ;-) 


I am now totally addicted to her products--just wonderful!

Her stuff is THE BEST!!  I've got a vanilla sea sponge right now and the vanilla scent leaves me feeling so cool in this heat and humidity.  That along with some of her powder.

The ginger fig is phenomenal. I'm also a fan of the citron and fig, and, surprisingly enough, pink sugar. It's not the sort of scent I usually go for, but I love it. She also does an amber that's a good choice for something a little more masculine.

I can also recommend the lavender, the pumpkin spice, the yule spice, the nutcracker  and the eucalyptus. I love them all.

If you like the pumpkin spice, try the jillie's smoky pear sometime. It's rich and deep and lovely and it was named after a (blush) close friend and MB fan!


Seriously, give it a shot. I bet you'd love it.

Great! Now that I am back in Dallas,  I need to stock up here as well. I love anything citrusy.

I LOVE lemon verbena. Currently, I splurge and use L'Occitane Lemon Verbena soap and would love to sub something that RuthAnn makes.

I adore the lemon verbena!  I keep a spray of that - the aroma waters - to freshen my house.


Love it.


I also love the Cucumber Ginseng.

Big slap upside the head for me! I love this stuff but the price of shipping transAtlantic kind of rules it out. And I've just had a bunch of CT visitors from North America and they all, bless 'em, asked if there was anything they could bring. Did I remember Mermaids Bath? No I did not. Am I extremely annoyed with myself? You betcha!

Ack!  I'm annoyed with myself, also. I thought of it, but then never followed through and contacted RA.  Blast!!  :-( 


Oh, well, Londonfest-II I'll do better.

Ashley, I'm in the States in Maryland in September. If you want, have KitchenWitch send to Maryland, and I'll post from Ireland when I return. Let me know.

I was thinking the same thing. You could have them shipped to me if you want and I'll get them to you when we meet.


This month's Toronto Life food section addresses where to take foodie guests in the city. So I'll be tearing that out. Please don't think I'm not coming up with ideas; the summer is completely crazy for me in terms of work. When I get a brief break I'll start posting ideas for a fest or adding to others.

How right you are!  I ordered a gallon jug of some fragrance my DD loved, because she kept running out.  RA did up the gallon for me.  Her fragrances are phenomenal.  I'm a particular fan of the soap sponges.

Please make some suggestions for gifts to carry on our river cruise.  We'll have local hosts in some cities, and I would love to take gifts (leaving mid August, assume that's enought time for shipping???) I trust.


Edited to add, looking at web site even as we speak.  Oh, my, how to choose...

If you want small thank-you gifts, the baby-sized lotions (I think she calls them "Mini-me"???) are always a huge hit. They fit nicely in a purse or desk drawer.


I won't tell you how many I have in the office . . . but I often give them as small Christmas gifts and people really like them.

Thanks, great idea, I'm also eyeing the soap petals.  And the soap sponges.  And the bath confetti. And the... well, you know, everything, lol.  Not everything has to go on the road, you know???

RA also makes smallish, square soaps that are PERFECT as guest soaps and as gifts in any scent.


I have a pretty jar filled with them in our half-bath which is used by most of our guests.  I love them.
