With the days getting short this time of the year we all favor scents that remind us of long warm summer nights in the open. This autumn has been colorful and bright, and even in the wintertime there are many sunny days on the island. But for the cooler, darker weeks to come we might need a few comforting things. Like those you find at Gaia bathtime. Trudi Murray, founder and owner of the pretty little store in the heart of the Gerreria, offers a great selection of natural cosmetics – all manufactured from organically grown plants from the island.
In everyday life we usually prefer taking a shower to using the bathtub. That’s why a hot bath with your favorite bathing salts is always a special treat, perfect with a book or some classic music, a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Who wouldn’t like to spend an endless hour? Precious time. At Gaia, you’ll find the perfect ingredients for the perfect bath time – soaps, moisturizers and lotions, body scrubs, hair products and wonderful oils for Ayurvedic aroma therapy. Lately, Trudi introduced an extravagant body polisher made with flor de sal d’es trenc in four aromas, as well as make-up products like lip gloss and nail polish in several lovely colors. Plus a men’s own cosmetic line with lotions and cremes that come in fancy Aluminium bottles and go well beyond shaving.
No need to add, that Gaia products make for the most wonderful Christmas presents. If you want to make it a very special one, add a gift certificate for one of their massages, they are really special. All scents come in simplistic yet stylish packings, you just want to take them on your next trip. If only into your own bathroom. As we know, our olfactory receptors are directly connected to the limbic system and immediately evoke our memories. One more reason to chose your favorite destination from a bottle or pot of Gaia’s.
