Last spring while staying with a friend, she told me to help myself to the products in her shower. One of them was St. Ives mineral therapy body wash. I liked it so much I bought it when I got home and I use it occasionally when the mood strikes.

These last few days, while feeling less-than-great, it has felt particularly wonderful to lather it on. It has what I can only describe as a pure, clean scent and it has a soothing quality. Perhaps it’s the psychology of seeing the words ‘mineral therapy’ or the mystique of knowing it’s from Switzerland. Whatever it is, I feel like I’m on an upswing.

It’s part of my healing formula.
