The 12 Wicked Beautiful Days of Christmas – Day 5Posted: December 17, 2008
About 10 or 12 years ago, Origins introduced their Ginger Float cream bubble bath as a limited-edition product for the holidays. Adding a handful of the cream to your bathwater infused it with the spicy but sweet fragrance of ginger infused with citrus. This ginger fragrance proved to be so popular that Origins made it a permanent staple, and expanded their Ginger Essence line with other bath and body products, as well as perfumes and a candle. While other Origins bath lines have come and gone, Ginger Essence has remained one of their most enduringly popular fragrances. This year, Origins is offering a variety of Ginger Essence Gift Sets. My favorite is simple yet sweet: The Gingerfest Gift Set ($35). It includes the original Ginger Float cream bubble bath in an 8-ounce jar, as well as 4-ounce jars each of Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream and Incredible Spreadable Scrub ginger body smoother. The products come stacked in a festive red-and-white holiday tube. The smell of the Origins ginger products still takes me back to that magical first Christmas when the Ginger Float was introduced.
