I’ve previously touched on some of the other Trance Essence Body Nectar scents in a previous post, and chose the ultra-feminine Amma body oil as one of my top gift ideas last Fall, but I had never had the opportunity to smell Prayer–another of the natural body oils loving handcrafted by artisan, Janna Sheehan–until just this week when Janna sent me a sample of Prayer. I remember how Trish from Scent Hive mentioned that she wanted to rub it on her face to experience its overwhelming warmth and comfort, and I have to agree with her. The frankincense, cardamom, and lavender bestow a warm, comforting, woodsy fragrance on your skin…definitely a wind-down scent. And what’s even more comforting about this luxuriously moisturizing oil is the fact that Prayer is doing its part to help relief efforts in the most devastated areas of Japan. Trance Essence is generously donating half the proceeds of every bottle of Prayer until 3/31/11 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief in Japan. Just as Amma was the perfect gift for the girly-girl in your life, Prayer is the perfect gift for anyone, including yourself, who could benefit from a little extra prayer right now. You can buy Prayer, along with all of the other beautiful scents, on their website.
And if Trance Essence weren’t already charitable enough by donating half the proceeds of Prayer to Japan, they’re sponsoring a very generous giveaway to one PJR reader! All you have to do is leave a comment below describing someone/something you’d like to send a special prayer or loving thought to, and you’ll be entered to win a full-size 2 ounce bottle of Trance Essence Nectar Body Oil in Ripe (worth $46)! Ripe is a sweet, floral, honeyed fragrance–absolutely perfect for the approaching Spring and Summer weather. For a bonus entry please go to Trance Essence’s Facebook page and leave a comment. Please let me know if you comment on their Facebook page so I can credit you with a bonus entry! Unfortunately I can only ship to US addresses for this giveaway. Giveaway ends on 3/31 at midnight EST. I will announce the winner on April 1st. Best of luck, and may all of your prayers–no matter how big or small–be answered.
