Do you have certain scents for each season? I do and I got the best scent of summer today. A parcel I ordered from Kereru Natural Products arrived today and as soon as I smelled it I was transported to summer.
It’s early February (NZ’s summer) and we’ve just arrived at the Martinbourgh Fair. We’ve been up for a good hour and a half and just driven over the windy and treacherous Rimutaka Hills (okay so I’m amping it up a bit *grin*). The stall holders have finished setting up and the air has that wonderful crisp damp scent. It’s about seven am – we are really early but this way we beat the crowd and the heat.
We set off from a side street, carefully remembering which stalls are there so we don’t forget when we’re ready to go. I get assigned the backpack as lets face it most the purchases will be mine *grin*. We wander past hundreds of stalls. All with fabulous products.
And then there is the Kereru stand. It smells divine – the small stall is sheltered by a tiny gazebo style tent and its shelves are smothered in products.
Essential oils, fragrance oils, rich creams, bath bombs, scented candles and lip salves – they have more but I can’t remember.
I realize this sounds a lot like any other product but I can honestly say that once you’ve tried their products you will NEVER use anything else. Their Rosehip oil is incredible and I love the massage oils they make. I use them during Winter as a moisturizer after my showers and my skin is phenomenal for it.
Having a total rave I know but this parcel has just made my day! Oooh and included in it is a lip salve for the lucky winner of my 500 followers competition *grin* so the loot for the prize is now

I don’t agree with taking dogs to the fair (it’s VERY crowded) but this cutie was such a photo op 🙂
And these are actually soaps!
