We love these new all -natural body products from bod Australia. They use only the most natural ingredients and essential oils, hand crafted for their many loyal customers in Australia & Europe. The creators of bod take their customers' well-being seriously and carefully prepare their products to promote balance and restore harmony and health to the skin and body. The symbol of three lines above the letter "o" symbolizes kawa, meaning to flow or river in Japanese. Here are some of our favorite products:

  • Sandalwood, Rosewood and Patchouli Body Oil : wonderful for dry skin. The blend not only acts as a skin cell stimulant, it smells amazing!

  • Organic Rice Body Scrub: the Japanese tradition of using the natural starch in rice to smooth the skin, combined with revitalizing mineral clay to leave skin smooth and radiant.

  • Goddess Blend Bath Salts - vanilla, mandarin & jasmine blended for a fragrant & sensual bath soak.

  • Princess Blend Bath Salts - a wonderful blend of rose maroc with geranium.

  • Lotus Bath Salts - frangipangi & monoi, a coconut-infused magnolia.

  • Stretch Mark Blend: certified organic calendula with rosehip oil, vitamins A and E, rosewood and frankincense essential oils.

Custom Blending

I want to start off by saying Thank You to everybody for their support of our new store. It was a long labor of love but well worth it. Gina, thank you for my pictures. To all our friends who stopped by to say hi, help us unpack or called just to say hello you are the best!

We carry some really wonderful lines in the store from companies all over the world who share our commitment to quality and detail over size. I will feature these often because they are sometimes hard to find and deserve our attention.

Our custom blending has been a huge success. We are so happy that people love the idea of selecting or creating a special fragrance for themselves and having it blended into the product of their choice. Many of our fragrances are exclusive to Melange and I love watching people transform them into something wonderful to take home or share with a friend. Here are a few blends people are trying recently:

- Figuier (fig) and Green Tea equal parts: A fresh, crisp blend. Green Tea enhances the natural properties of fig.

- Green Tea, Tuberose, White Tea: Very sophisticated light green floral with added sweetness from White Tea. Tuberose in smaller quantity adds nicely without overpowering the blend.

- Chevrefeuille (honeysuckle), Jasmine, L'Orangier (natural orange blossom): Honeysuckle is a very versatile floral with a touch of citrus. Combined with just a bit of Jasmine (warm, sweet) and natural Orange Blossom produces a very lush floral blend that is amazing.

Enjoy your week and don't forget to stop and smell the roses....
