8 comments
One of essensu's holistic skincare body creams, was recently featured in Trendhunter Magazine.


Our product was chosen due to the incredible buzz created by one of our customers, who wrote a testimonial and posted before and after pictures on her blog. You can read about her AMAZING results after this cream on her face for four months, at Fo-Shizzle Design Studios.

Before
After

We thought we would share her before and after photos here as well. Our cream is packed with goodness, which nourishes and re-hydrates even the driest skin.


The photo on the left was taken in January, 2010. The photo on the right was taken in June, 2010, four months later. She used the cream on her face and eye area twice a day, morning and night. Her testimonial was completely unsolicited and sent to us after she posted it on her blog.

We are delighted to have a customer have such wonderful results upon using one of our products!

Garden Fresh Lemonade

1 cup sugar

Stirring over high heat, bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. Add ginger and mint; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook the syrup at a slow boil until it is slightly thickened. Using a wire strainer, pour syrup into a bowl, pressing against the herbs to release flavor.

Set aside and cool. Add the juice from 4 lemons (about 3/4 cup juice) and lemon zest into a pitcher. Stir in syrup and 3 cups water, mixing well. Serve over ice; garnish with mint or thinly sliced lemons.




Basic Vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon gourmet mustard
1 tablespoon fresh herbs
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator.

Note: Suggested herbs include thyme, oregano, parsley, basil, marjoram and rosemary.
