Happy Canada Day! The Great Canadian Blog Bash – Organic Natural Beauty

PARLIAMENTBUILDINGSOTTAWAONTARIOCANADA

It’s almost Canada Day! Our great country is turning 146 years young on July 1st.  Celebrations will be happening in just about every town and city across Canada.

My favourite Canada Day celebrations? They always happen here in Ottawa.  I’ve been fortunate to be able to attend a few Canada Day celebrations in our Nation’s Capital over the years, including last year when I got to watch the spectacular fireworks over Parliament Hill – from across the river in Quebec.  The picture at the top of my post shows the beautiful view we had before the fireworks started.

Speaking of beauty,  some of you may remember our friends from Organic Natural Beauty, and their beautiful skincare products.  I’ve teamed up with them a couple of times to bring my followers some great giveaways. Now, Canadian Blog House is partnering with Organic Natural Beauty to bring my House Mates another great giveaway in honour of Canada Day.

For those of you who are hearing about Organic Natural Beauty for the first time, you are in for a treat.  Organic Natural Beauty is a gorgeous line of beauty products infused with natural ingredients such as Aloe and Olive Oil.  From skincare, bath and body products and hair care, to aromatherapy and health and wellness products, Organic Natural Beauty has you covered from head to toe.  Heck, they even have home care products for your household cleaning needs.

I’ve been lucky enough to try a number of Organic Natural Beauty’s products.  Some of my favourites? I especially liked their Aloe Vera Gel.  I used it on a sunburn a couple of summers ago and it felt wonderful on my burning skin – so cool and soothing.  I am also a fan of their Aloe Vera and Olive Oil Shower Gel and Hand Cream.  Both smell so clean and wonderful!

Be sure to check out Organic Natural Beauty’s gift selections.  I love the look of the DOME Pure Emotions Happiness Box sets. They look like a beautiful treat for the ladies in your life.

I’m also a big fan of Organic Natural Beauty’s commitment to their customers, animals, and the environment. Their products are not tested on animals, they use Post Consumer Recycled Materials in their packaging and their packaging is recyclable.

I was super excited when Organic Natural Beauty agreed to help Canadian Blog House celebrate Canada by joining in on The Great Canadian Blog Bash.  This will be my first year participating.  The Great Canadian Blog Bash is “a way for Canadians involved in social media to find other Canadians to connect with online, celebrate Canadian talent and promote Canadian companies.”  Over 100 of my fellow Canadian Bloggers will be participating…and it’s going to be FUN!

So in honour of Canada day and The Great Canadian Blog Bash, our friends at Organic Natural Beauty have generously offered up a beautiful prize for one lucky Canadian Blog House Member – A $125 5-Piece Home Spa Gift Set:

Box 5 pc Aloe Vera & Olive Oil N & B - Home Spa Kit

While it won’t get you an extra entry into the giveaway (due to FB rules), we’d sure LOVE it if you LIKED us on Facebook!
