Time for a Vacation!

am/Gil Cabo FebFebruary... you know what that means, don't you? Time for a get-away, an escape. Time to kick back and take it easy, and at the same time, recharge your inner battery. You knew you had one, right? I mean, even our cars sometime need a jump-start to get moving again, so why not you? Especially now when most of the country is shivering under the blankets or bundling up with layers of clothing, now is time to let your mind and body drift away... sure, you can achieve that in a tub, but let's be a little more adventurous here--- let's dream big.

Whether that means island hopping the British Virgin Islands and discovering the natural pristine beauty while hiking the national park of Fallen Jerusalem, or spending a week or so doing some global shopping in Luang Prabang, Laos where you'll find some incredible textile silks, antiques in interior design shops, and exciting exotic foods. Let's get a jump-start on a travel frame of mind, and it’s going to be easy, too, cause you’re going to take advantage of the easy portability and multi-tasking attributes of J.R.LIGGETT’S products.

Just the other evening while visiting with my longtime friends Bruce and Mandy, they shared their plans to spend the next few weeks in the wilds of the Peruvian Amazon's Madre de Dios region. Kayaking on the Tambopata River and zip lining through the remote jungles are high on their list, and they also plan to take in some fishing for piranhas and bird watching for brilliant-colored parrots and macaws. Now, Bruce and Mandy are your seasoned travelers--you won’t find any moss growing under their feet--and they have been admirers of J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bars for years and years. In fact, I end up learning from them when it comes to how handy and versatile J.R.LIGGETT’S products are for traveling.

Always, before even thinking of packing anything else, they grab their Natural Traveler and a couple extra shampoo bars. Bruce says they learned their lesson when they first started traveling about what not to bring along on a trip. The first disaster was a leaking bottle of liquid shampoo in their luggage-- suffice to say, they had a huge mess on their hands--and clothes. Then, Mandy told the story of over packing with all the body products she thought she needed... bottle of liquid shampoo, conditioner, can of shaving cream, facial cleanser, facial moisturizer, body lotion. By the time she had all that stuffed in her luggage along with what she really needed, bam! She’d passed her weight limit and ended up paying extra for the privilege of lugging around all those needless items. It goes without saying that this couple did a complete 360 and learned that less, and simple is better.

abo Feb MarinaAnd the TSA... oh please, don’t get me started on that. You know what a stickler they are about liquids and bottles... but you will breeze right past that hurdle with J.R.LIGGETT'S multi-tasking, airline friendly Shampoo Bar tucked securely in 'The Traveler'. You won't be one of those who helplessly stand by watching their toiletries being tossed into a nearby container.

 But maybe you’re going to travel in a smaller, closer circle than Bruce and Mandy. Maybe you have several children and just getting them dressed and out of the house everyday is a huge enough mountain to climb let alone packing for a trip.
Maybe you’re just going to take a quick trip to Key West where you plan on luxuriating in that ‘don’t worry, be happy’ vibe... same wisdom applies here as it does for the globe trotter. It’s all in the bar--the Shampoo Bar. Whether you grab The Traveler, the eZ-pouch, or even throw in a few Mini Travelers for each child, J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar does it all, hands down.

No liquid shampoo to spill, leak, or drip. No drying body soap that could aggravate certain skin conditions like eczema, fungal infections, or even sunburn--we know overdoing the rays can happen quite easily when you hang out on a beach--you want to soak up all that light, and before you know it, you’re looking a tad too pink... I know if I sunburned, J.R.LIGGETT’S mild, moisturizing, 100% detergent-free products would be the only ones I’d be using. With all the gentle, natural, nourishing oils in the products, your skin will be soothed and comforted.

Another cool thing is how compact J.R.LIGGETT’S products are--no wasted space. You won’t see some humungous sized containers with just a smidge of product inside, and what plastic is used, is either recyclable or refillable! I especially like the fact that you can have a 16 ounce refill on hand for the Foam Face & Body Wash, and when your 7 ounce--- or the easily transportable 1.5 ounce--is empty, just grab and refill. You can use the same original plastic container over and over! Ditto for the 16 ounce refill container--simply send it back to J.R.LIGGETT’S Ltd. and they will refill it for $ 15.99 which includes shipping! How awesome is that? Wise women everywhere should definitely make note of this value and convenience.
