We have been using a variety of Lemongrass House Products for a while now, and love that it is made with natural ingredients which are good for us and the environment. The subtle natural fragrances in their products are derived from plants and flowers, which feels good against the skin. We also love the different home and pillow fragrance sprays from Lemongrass House to give our home a feel-good fresh scent.

Learning to appreciate what is around us and Giveaway

It is important we take the time to educate ourselves and teach our children about the beautiful things that surrounds us. When we forget to appreciate nature, things like Climate Change will not feel like a big deal. In recent years, we have seen major concern for climate change, but have we taken the time to reflect on how we can help reduce it?

These books from DK Canada such as Trees, Leaves, Flowers and Seeds; The Wonders of Nature; Manmade Wonders of the World; and Ice takes a closer look at the beauty of nature and man-made things around us.
