A line that I am really interested in that is worth exploring is Caldrea. Caldrea was created around the concept that caring for your home should be a beautiful experience. Caldrea is known for fantastic household cleaners like laundry soap, dish soap, linen and room sprays. The packaging is simplistic, beautiful, and elegant.
They also have intriguing looking body products like body wash, body oil, and body cream. I feel calmer and more centered just looking at their website and I desperately want to try every single product. I imagine this line would make me feel supremely happy just to be spritzing my rooms with Sea Salt Neroli Linen and Room Spray or spritzing my body with Coconut Fig Leaf Perfume.
Caldrea is a company with a vision. Here are a few things they have committed to in order to care for the environment and for their employees:
- LEED-certified offices
- Charitable involvement by individuals and through company supported initiatives.
- Recycling, composting and electricity programs that continue to reduce our consumption & waste.
- Sit/stand desks to improve health and longevity.
- Recently named one of the Top 100 Places to Work by Outside Magazine.
- Complimentary on-site yoga and athletic & national park entrance fees.
- Monthly Lunch & Learns on health, wellness and environmental issues to help better our lives and our earth.
- A welcoming living wall in our workplace cleanses the air and revives the senses.
- Company Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiative bringing healthy foods into our office.
Holy smokes, I want to work there!!
I got my hands on some small sample packets of three different body lotions. These three scents are the ‘body’ scents, which are available in these different products: Bar Soap, Body Wash, Body Lotion, Body Oil, Body Creme, and Perfume. The Body Lotions all have shea butter for awesome hydration, as well as chia seed oil to fight free radicals.
The Caldrea Tea Olive Lime Body Lotion is a green and citrus scent, with lime, orange, tea, vanilla and sandlewood. It’s a clean scent that is also comforting at the same time.
The Caldrea Coconut Fig Leaf Body Lotion smells so amazing. I get mostly coconut and figs, with a bit of violet. This is really dreamy stuff. I made my small sample packet last for two weeks only allowing myself a very small bit for my hands each time I sat down at the computer.
Caldrea Aloe Water Apricot Body Lotion is a feminine yet woodsy and musky scent. It’s an interesting mix of floral and citrus. It is truly beautiful.
I also got my hands on a small scent sample sachet of the Rosewater Driftwood. You can get this scents in the home products like Dish Soap, Countertop Spray, All-Purpose Cleaner, Hand Soap, Hand Lotion, Hand Balm, Laundry Detergent, Fabric Softener, Dryer Sheets, Linen and Room Spray, and Candle. Rosewater Driftwood is a truly elegant mixture of rose, gardenia, lily of the valley, cedar, and white musk. I would love to have my whole house smell like this!
My little samples have only stoked my curiosity and desire for more from this line. Sea Salt Neroli, Palmarosa Wild Mint, and Sweet Pea scents are all calling my name…I just know that cleaning my house with products from this simple but elegant line would make me very, very happy. - Lisa
