Hillhouse Naturals Review and Giveaway

I love keeping my home looking and smelling great.  With two active little girls running around, sometimes keeping it clean is hard to accomplish.  I am always picking up toys and books that seem to come from their rooms and end up in the living room and kitchen and even at some points end up in the bathroom of all places.  I love to keep a clean home for my girls and find myself cleaning almost on a daily basis.  I am not a perfectionist by no means, I just feel that a clean and nice smelling home reflects on a person and I hate it when even my mother in law or sister in law come over to the house and it is not picked up and looking good.  I love to have candles, scented oils, potpourri and more throughout my house to make it smelling fresh and relaxing.  The same things can be said about my appearance.  I always like to make an impression with my choice of perfumes or lotions that makes people ask me what I am wearing.  There's nothing better than making a lasting impression on someone, especially my hubby.  I found a great place where you can not only find scents for your home but for you as well.  The place:Hillhouse Naturals and they have some really wonderful and unique collections that feature candles, lotions, and reed diffusers among other products.  I was lucky enough to receive the following products for review:

*Bloom Diffuser- Delicious as the fresh breath of spring, a delicate floral bouquet of water lily, lotus flower, and jasmine is underscored with the cool green notes of fresh bamboo and vetiver.  I have only used one reed diffuser throughout my home before.  I have looked at them in the stores and some of them are really expensive.  After using this particular diffuser in my home, I would be likely to pay the extra money for one of these.  Even upon taking this out of the box, you get the wonderful, sweet aroma like fresh picked flowers.  To me, it reminded me of my grandmother's lilac bushes that she always used to have out front of her house, you know the pretty purple ones that have such a wonderful aroma?  I have this diffuser in my living room on top of the stereo and everytime I walk past it, I get the delicious scent.  I usually flip the reeds everyday or every other day so that I get even more fragrance going on throughout my room.  The fragrance contains essential oils and the reeds release the fragrance into the air by allowing the highly concentrated perfumed liquid to seep up through the reeds and evaporate.  I really love having this diffuser in my home because it really makes it have a fresh, fragrant and clean feeling to it.  
*Olive Leaf Diffuser- A classic beauty from the Mediterranean-ancient home of the olive tree renewed for the current nature loving trend.  This herbal blend combines fresh, crisp notes of lemon verbena, green olive leaves, pettigrain and cucumber with warm woody whiffs of patchouli and cedarwood.  I also love the scent of this diffuser, which I have in my bathroom.  It provides a unique scent and I definitely can smell the hints of lemon verbena and cucumber.  This is a really great diffuser to have around your home because of all of the combinations of scents that it has going on through it.  This is one that guests to your house will definitely be asking about.
*Birch Soy Candle-This candle has an invigorating, woodsy scent.  My hubby really enjoyed this candle, said it reminded him of going out camping in the woods.  This is a candle in the new Signature Collection from Hillhouse Naturals along with Fresh Cut Grass, which is always a favorite scent of mine, French Tulip, Mango, and Gardenia Tuberose.  We usually don't burn candles during the warmer weather and summer months, it's something we usually do during the cold winters and rainy fall days, but as soon as hubby heard the scent, he wanted to try it.  Not only is he a lover of candles like I am, he likes the "tough" and woodsy scents better than what vanilla and fruity scents.  This really is a nice scented candle, not too overpowering of a scent yet just enough to tell what it is.  This was definitely a really nice candle and long-lasting.
*Fresh Linen Body Creme- Clean and uplifting, there's nothing better than Fresh Linen to help you unwind at the end of the day or get you ready to start a new one.  This exceptionally soft and subtle fragrance inspires memories of home linens freshly washed, then dried in the cool spring breeze.  This is what this body creme truly smelled like.  My grandmother had one of those old washing machines that hooked up to the sink and she would wash her clothes.  Then she would take them outside to the two clotheslines that she had strung from tree to tree and hang them out to dry for the day.  That brought back so many memories when I used this lotion, it had a clean, fresh scent and made my skin feel really soft and smooth at the same time.  This is great lotion and quickly has become one of my favorites to use.  I will definitely be ordering more of this in the near future.
*Cashmere Body Creme- The ultimate in luxury.  The natural elements, color and fragrance are the perfect blend of classic and contemporary style for the bed and bath.  This body creme is simple yet luxurious to use with a soft, simple scent that is definitely not overpowering.  It makes your skin smooth and supple as well.  I really enjoyed using this lotion.

In 1986, Hillhouse Naturals Farms began growing herbs and everlasting flowers on their farm in Kentucky.  It was during the early years that they began to make a line of handcrafted gifts such as garlands, wreaths, and ornaments inspired by the garden.  In recent years they have expanded their line to produce and ever growing line of products such as potpourri, candles, sachets, bamboo diffuser reeds, body products, and drawer liners.  Hillhouse Naturals takes pride in the natural quality and individually of their products.  The rich fragrances and textures of their potpourris are substantial in a way that makes most other potpourri mixtures seem bland in comparison.  The variety of hearty textures is visually appealing as well as aromatic with a quality that would satisfy the most discriminating customer.  The philosophy is a simple one: Hillhouse Naturals only sells quality products made with care.
