Berry Bewitching Bath Brew Recipe

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Jenny1Here at Natures Garden, we are currently having an employee challenge.  For this spotlight challenge, we have asked each staff member to choose one of their favorite Natures Garden’s fragrance oils and create a project pertaining to that fragrance.  

Yet, another week has passed and we all know what that means!  It is time to get super excited to see this week’s Spotlight Creation.  Jenny, who has only worked for Natures Garden a few months, was the lucky Natures Garden employee selected for this week, and her spotlight creation is cleverly called “Berry Bewitching Bath Brew“.

Jenny is no newbie when it comes to crafting.  She enjoys spending her free time using jewelry crafting as her creative outlet.  Although, she enjoys beaded jewelry; her passion involves making jewelry with glamorous gemstones- adding a little bling to life.Bath-Brew1

When she is not designing beautiful jewelry, Jenny likes to spend time with her family.  Jenny is a newly married wife and also has a daughter.  She and her husband Scott will be celebrating their 1st year anniversary this Sunday.

Jenny, who has the sign Cancer, enjoys being outdoors.  She is a nature lover and animal lover too!

When it comes to leisure time, Jenny enjoys reading.  Her favorite author right now is Dan Brown.  Jenny thinks he is a great author because it’s a combo of “history, mystery, and a little bit of action.  It’s fun.”  Besides Dan Brown books, she has quite a collection of books in her personal library-sci fi, horror, and mystery.  But, she has a special liking for culture, history, and especially genealogy.

Jenny also enjoys listening to cultured music, and is patiently waiting for the new season of The Walking Dead to start.

Jenny loves the color purple and when it comes to Jenny’s life motto she reinvented an age ole adage:  “Knowledge is empowerment!”
