Beijing China has a lot of different views, odors and sounds. As we travel about the city there are many things I recognize and also things I don’t.
The Chinese people value natural soaps and lotions. We gave wedding favors to all the guests of soaps and lip balms. The soaps were of many different colors and scents yet all were made with goat milk. The soaps were made by Spirit Goat, a local company to MMS. The lip balms were made in our blog kitchen and flavored with Pomegranate Flavor Oil. Both items were a hit.
Tonight we walked the street vendors who were grilling foods, stewing meats, frying sweets, steaming buns and the whole city has a busy, complex aroma. Our office smells busy, complex and inviting too. Many people comment on the scent of our office and they wish we could bottle just the scent of MMS. It isn’t possible because our home changes odors every day. I can say that even the big, burly truck drivers think we smell good!
Do you need suggestions for new scents to try? Beijing China has a common set of fragrances for all scented personal care items. These are the typical set: Rose, Jasmine, Green Tea, Aloe, Pomegranate, and all of the super fruits. If you are stuck, just ask. We’ll give seasonal recommendations too. Don’t be surprised if our list is influenced by our travels. We feel especially lucky to share some of the things we have learned.
