Hands down, the best thing about my job is getting the opportunity to learn more about natural skincare every day. Having the chance to dedicate yourself full time to working on something you are passionate about is a rare gift. I'm thankful every day that I found myself here. I wanted to share that joy and passion with my co-workers at FromNatureWithLove.com. When I shared this desire with Margaret, our office manager, she came up with a wonderful way to inspire the whole team with a passion for what we do.
For the past few months we have been holding employee workshops at our warehouse facility in Connecticut. On one Friday every month, employees from every department get together after work to create a handmade bath or body recipe. So far, we have made lip balms, salt scrubs, even handmade body cream. Margaret and I take turns creating recipes and showing everyone the ropes. It has been such a rewarding experience to see everyone come together as a team and create something special every month. We are getting to know one another better, while shedding a little light on the nature of the products we work with every day.

This month, the group made a Margarita Salt Scrub and a matching Margarita Body Cream. The idea originated from Victoria, one of our customer care representatives, joking that after a particularly hectic week we should cancel the salt scrubs and make margaritas instead. I decided to compromise by creating two margarita inspired recipes which I'll be sharing with you soon.
