I often forget to include candles in spa kits. I don't always associate citrus with rejuvenating.

Great ideas.The rejuvenating is my favorite as I love citrus. I wonder, are any other scents besides lavender relaxing? I never buy anything marketed as relaxing because I don't care for the smell of lavender. Thanks!

I like that the candles don't use synthetic fragrances...I am on a quest to remove all of the "chemical" smells from our home in an attempt to make our house healthier. I have never tried the sugar scrubs...but they sound like a great way to wake up tired skin and get ready for spring. owatz (AT) telus (DOT) net

The "relaxing" spa collection sounds wonderful. I love the different ideas that were given. I like how gift baskets look when they are all assembled, but I have always had difficulty visualizing how to put one together that wasn't just a hodge podge of stuff. This gives some great ideas and it looks so easy to do.

I always have a hard time with fragrance because I hate toxins in my home. A non-toxic candle (rejuvinating even better) is something I should try. The chamomile, apple blossom candle is video looks great.

These spa baskets are such a great idea for a "self gift". As a new mom, the rejuvenating products (citrus) look the best---would help me get up the energy to chase down my new little walker! Thanks!

ooooh yummy! The scented candles look great. I shop at WFs but never saw those. Every year I buy the Aura Cacia individual bath salts for stocking stuffers... Great gift basket ideas.

These spa baskets are a great idea for gifts. I've been buying shampoos, conditioners, lotions, etc. for myself for the longest time. Now I can put together a themed spa basket for a friend!
