Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens…
Settle down, Oprah, I know the whole “Favorite Things” thing is your gig. Some things are just too good not to share though.
Preface/Disclaimer: I’m trying really hard to tame the avid consumer inside of me, but every now and again I find a product or company that is so worthy of my love (and money) that I have to whip out the ole credit card and snap some of their shit up.
Indigo Wild is one of those companies.
Run by a bunch of dog-loving, cancer-hating hippies, Indigo Wild creates beautiful and natural products for your body and home. In their own words…
Our people were born to be Indigo Wild. And — guilty as charged — every one of us is a true nature’s child. We’ve banded together to thump and bump the rock and soul into every batch of Zum Bars, Glows, Rubs, Kisses and more. Individually, our peeps are virtuosos who are oh-so major to helping our ingredients sing. But together, We’re fusicians who ensure the holistic is always greater than the Zum of its parts.
We make our stuff rock, balancing the rhythm that forms the backbone: Goat’s milk, soy wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, dragon’s blood. We add stuff like meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip oil and botanical extracts for bass vibes you can feel. Then we bring out the 100% pure essential oils to lay down a melody that hits the high notes.
I was on the hunt for a good, natural, muscle rub after my recent return to strength training, and a few dates with my new 20 lb kettle bell. My friend, Sam, had spoiled me during my visit to London with a hot ginger muscle rub which was absolutely fantastic, but is sadly no longer being sold because the parent company has gone tits up.
The Interwebs served up some Indigo Wild, and I danced with glee when I found Zum Rub for Muscles.
It’s an all-natural mix of menthol, shea butter and organic extracts that soothes sore muscles. Best of all, you can pronounce all the ingredients. #Winning.
Since I was already there, credit card in hand, why not pick up a couple of other items?, I asked myself.
Why not, indeed.
I bought Zum Face, an awesome serum based in argan oil. This tiny package packs a lot of punch, toning, softening and promoting cellular rejuvenation. Best of all? You guessed it: I can pronounce all the ingredients.
I also bought a special two-pack of their Zum Bar goat’s milk soap. One is Frankincense & Myrrh, which – I kid you not – I previously believed to be fairy-tale stuff from the Bible. Turns out they are real. And they smell divine. The second in the two-fer is Sea Salt, which I’m told will banish my dry skin through its mineral properties. Also, I can pronounce all the ingredients.
So far I’ve tried the Zum Face and the Zum Rub, and both exceeded my expectations. The Zum Bar real-world test (read: use it in the shower) is up next. So far though, just the scent it fills my bathroom with is enough to justify the purchase. If it makes my skin feel good, that’ll be gravy.
p.s. As if it needs to be said, but I’ll say it anyway, I have no affiliation to Indigo Wild. They did not ask me to promote their products, nor did they provide me with any free products (although that would have been really nice). Why can’t a cool company like this make me a brand ambassador??? Waaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh 😦
