What's Indie Bath? Blue Ridge Naturals

Welcome to the next installment of my new series What's Indie Bath! Today I am talking about Blue Ridge Naturals aka BRN as it was introduced to me.  This indie bath and body business is based in North Carolina and has been open for business since 2011. They offer phthalate and nitro musk free fragrance products all made in small batches to preserve quality.

This brand has a very expansive list of products that you can choose from. Everything from soy/wax tarts, to bath bombs and truffles (in various sizes and scents) to lotions, hair care, perfumes, soaps, scrubs, face care and more!  And the scents! I love all the smell-erific options on the master scent description list (view that here). How great does Honey Vanilla Love Dust sound?! And the Red Lipstick scent apparently has a cult following.

Since I was primarily looking for some items to help my 3 year old daughter with dry winter skin when I first started exploring Blue Ridge Naturals I bought the following items to try with her in mind. 

Moisturizing Bath Truffles
These are very moisturizing bath truffles. Your skin will be smooth and soft. Made with moisturizing oils like mango butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and apricot oil. You will love these!

Since my daughter has sensitive skin I ordered two of these truffles in the Oatmeal Milk & Honey scent. I loved the fresh scent and my daughter had so much fun as this fizzed and dissolved in her bath. I of course soaked my hands and as far up my arms as I could to test its effects on my own skin.

The Verdict: WOW I can't believe this little truffle packed so much moisturizing punch! My daughter's dry skin was gone and there was no irritation to her sensitive skin. As for my own hands and arms they were distinctly more soft then the rest of my arm that was not in the bath. Is it wrong to be jealous of my toddler?

I love that Blue Ridge Naturals offers these truffles in various sizes. Small (pictured above) are only $1.25 and there are very big ones for $3.75. This is a great value and I plan to stock up on a bunch of these in various different scents! I may even still share them with my daughter! 

Bath Bombs
Our bath bombs are not as moisturizing as the truffles but still delightful. Our bombs are made with Mango Butter, Cocoa Butter, jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil. I purchased one of the small bombs in the Cupcake Factory scent and loved it. It had a long lasting dissolve and smelled great! 

Small bath bombs start at only $1.75 and Huge Moisturizing Bath Bombs are $5.00. There are also some really amazing looking Bubble Bars that I am going to have to try. Like this Big Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream Bubble Bar.

Natural Organic Roll-on Kids Bath Soap
Comes in a 3 ounce roll on tubes. These will be colored we use micas for color. kids will be able to wash and have fun at the same time. 

This product is just so fun and I remember having something similar to it when I was a kid. My daughter loves the pink soap and it smells amazing. We use this every night now!
