Aromatherapy Giveaway

By Kate Riley June 15, 2012

Greetings and happy Father’s Day weekend all, hope you have something relaxing  planned with a special dad in your life!  We’re headed to the east coast for a week to spend some time with family for a few days, and I’m also gearing up for a presentation in Atlanta at the Haven Conference, can’t wait to meet all of the attendees!

This weekend’s giveaway is brought to you by PC Fallon and their line of Archipelago bath and body products and home fragrances too.  I’ve been a fan of these products for years, they are clean and pure, never cloying like some other fragrance lines can be.  Archipelago Botanicals are made in the USA with the purest ingredients and essential oils.  My favorite scents are the lavender soaps and linen spray, the milk body lotion, and the Savannah candle (jasmine and gardenia, yum.)

    Although my fave scent is lavender, I’d have to say that I’d also like the Elder & Olive Hand Lotion. I use a lot of tea tree and lavender essential oils in my soaps, but am prone to my fingertips “splitting” all the time. Hoping that the lotion helps prevent that due to all my OCD hand washing!

  57. I love all the products but the Lavender lines is my favorite.. and there the Linen Spray is the best… The Mint line is to consider too…

  58. Anything lavender is wonderful so I would try the ARCHIPELAGO BOTANICALS FRAGRANCES AB HOME LAVENDER collection, all of them!

    It is interesting you had this post because just yesterday I was thinking of emailing you asking you to post about your lavender garden: what type do you have, how you care for it, does it need pruning, fertilizing, what about pests.

    Thanks for the giveaway Kate.

  59. I LOVE lavender!!! Anything from that collection would be wonderful but living in dry, dry Colorado Springs I think I would choose Archipelago Lavender Body Lotion.

    Thanks for the giveaway Kate! I really enjoy your blog and recommend it to all my crafty friends!

  60. Oh my, so many wonderful products! I would love any of them but if I had to chose one, I’d say the eucalyptus soy candle would be my choice. (or perhaps lavender, or pear, I bet pear is lovely!)

  61. I love citrus smells. I would totally get the grapefruit scented body lotion.

  62. oooh, so many options! and Love the 55 hour burn time on the tin candles!

    I think I’d have to pick their Archipelago Grapefruit Eau de Toilette, it sounds divine.

  63. I discovered Archipelago products a few years ago when I was visiting Fredericksburg, TX. I have been in love with them since. They only had the milk products then, but I would love to try their lavender. Thanks.

  64. I didn’t even look at anything. Once I saw they had grapefruit, I knew what I wanted. Both the boys love the scent of grapefruit as do I. What a wake up and smile smell!

  65. I love Archipelago candles! I wasn’t aware they made bath & body products. Good to know! I love the Currant Large Soy candle.

  66. Hi,
    Mmmmm, several of the scents sound good enough to eat! I would love some of the Enfleurage, Lanai and/or Yankee Candle Lilac candles for my home. If you like the smell of lilacs (and I do) the lilac scent from Yankee Candle is best I’ve ever found.
    Thanks for providing the opportunity for the giveway.

  67. I think the Archipelago Jasmine Hibiscus Soy Boxed Candle sounds amazing! Two of my favorite scents in one!

  68. I would love to try the Casablanca Blossom diffuser. Too bad the iPad can’t handle scratch and sniff! Oh, well, give it time …

  69. Hmmm….the Lavender Hand Wash or some lovely Soy Candles would be great! Thanks!

  70. What a beautiful line of products! I would choose Archipelago Boticario de Havana Personal Fragrance! Thank you!

  71. Easy – it’s the sweet pea diffusers for me! That’s my daughter’s nickname and I’d love to have that scent for her room, any room really!

  72. There is so much to choose from but I would love to try the Archipelago Peony Diffuser. It sounds so dreamy.

  73. My absolute favorite for the shower- Archipelago Morning Mint Body Wash!!!! There’s just something so cheerful about it and it really wakes you up!

  74. I love soy candles, but I’m also a mint person – so I’d like to try the mint body wash. Or is there a mint candle?

  75. Well lavender is ‘my’ scent but I love their Signature collection — so many unique combos. Verbena Basil combines two of my other fav scents so that is intriguing!

  76. A long lost scent… Archipelago Soy Milk Lotion is a favorite I discovered over 12 years ago, but I have not had a bottle is years. Such a clean, delicious scent… I can still smell it like it was yesterday. I would love another bottle. Even if I don’t win this giveaway I will have to find a local retailer. Great post!

  77. All the products look wonderful! I guess if I had to pick it would be the Grapefruit Eau de Toilette.

  78. It’s hard to tell without actually being able to smell them but I think I’d love the Morning Mint body wash. It’d be so fresh and invigorating!!

  79. All of the products sound amazing but i would really love to try any of the products in the Morning Mi t fragrance! Yummy!

  80. All of the products sound amazing but I would love to try so etching in the Morning Mint fragrance!

  81. I never enter these contests, nor do I typically indulge in home fragrance… However, last summer I was in an art gallery in Seattle where they were burning a Tahitian Lime candle, and I fell in love with the scent. Perhaps it was because I was on vacation, but I searched google for the nearest seller, took a cab to Nordstroms, and promptly bought the reed diffuser. And I LOVE it!! I would love the opportunity to get another and try some other fragrances as well!! :)

  82. Mmmm….almost bought me some lavender lotion today; always a nice smell so I’d go for the lavendar hand cream or soap.

  83. I am torn between pineapple Ginger and Pomegranate Citrus. Might have to get both!

  84. All of these products sounds great! The Boticario de Havana collections sounds right up my alley.

  85. I would love any of the bath soaking products! Thanks for the chance to win.

  86. The Milk Collection Soy Creme sounds like it would be a lovely, purse-friendly hand cream.
    (And now that I think about I’m sure I’ve heard good things about their “Havana” candle fragrance….)

  87. Wholly Frap ! I just spent a half hour sniffing the Archipelago scented soy candles , virtually of course. I couldn’t decide on a favorite scent because I SHOULD be out of the house . I could never afford such luxuries, so winning would be extra awesome. I do need to find affordable soy candles though since burning the regular jar candles left soot around all my carpeted rooms. Took a month of hand cleaning hard labor to get the black stains out and save my carpet. So no more Walmart candle deals :( . I linked on my facebook (JohnsonGMU) but I don’t use the account there. I mean srsly, I just spent 3 HOURS checking out all the great ideas and shiny wonderfulness in the top DIY bloggers here. Dam U links ! :D. SO gorgeous.
    Thank you for sharing.

  94. I love the Havana collection! I want to try the body lotion, shampoo and conditioner and see why this is their most popular line!

  96. Would love to try the lavender hand wash. Love Love Love lavender! Thanks for introducing me to these products!

  99. Lavender linen spray! Now, I’m sure that would smell amazing on crisp, clean bed sheets!

  109. Oat Body Butter or the Mint Bubble Bath. Too many wonderful products to choose from!

  110. I would love the lavendar linen spray by archipelago. it would smell divine on my freshly ironed 100% cotton percale sheets. A luxury I can afford because they last so many years and help me sleep!

  112. I would like to try the ARCHIPELAGO MILK COLLECTION MILK BUBBLE BATH. It sounds so soothing.

  120. Hi Kate! I LOVE your blog and check in every morning to see what’s new. I live in an isolated community in Northern Canada called Churchill Falls.

If I am the lucky winner the ARCHIPELAGO MILK COLLECTION OAT 18 OZ. BODY LOTION would be my choice of product! Thanks!

  121. I would love to try out the Grapefruit Scrub. I love the scent of grapefruit and I’m definitely in need of a good exfoliant!

  122. I would love to win the Pineapple Ginger soy candle. That sounds like a perfectly lovely scent. :-)

  123. I think I’d have to go with the Lavender lamp fuel! My parents always had them growing up and they are such a nice way to make the house smell amazing!

  124. The Bergamot Tobacco sounds like it would be great to use in the living room…not too “girly” so the hubs doesn’t freak out, but it can cover up the smelly feet and puppy smells going on in there! :)

  125. I hope to win the Boticario de Havana so the scents can send me back to the memories I made there in vacation years ago.

  126. I like the sound of the diffusers with jasmine — the Charleston and Savannah ones particularly.

  127. Grapefruit body lotion products is one of my favorite. Always clean and energetic especially for the summer. Thanks for the giveaway

  128. Can I pick two?!? :)
    It’s a tie between the lavender (I get frequent migraines and the lavender helps soothe and relax me) and the Milk Collection. The milk collection just sounds silky and creamy and lovely!

    So hard to choose!!!

  134. I always enjoy lavendar scented items. It’s soothing and refeshing to me at the same time!

  142. The ARCHIPELAGO LAVENDE LARGE SOY CANDLE and the ARCHIPELAGO EUCALYPTUS LARGE SOY CANDLE are two of my very-most-favorite smells in the world! (Next to the smell of my freshly bathed kiddos, of course!) I would LOVE to win one of these! :-)

  143. I love the Archipelago Arugula Reed Diffuser that is in my bathroom. The scent is not too feminine and is perfect for the space. It fills the room nicely!

  144. Oh, the verbena basil or lavender spice home fragrances would be delightful! Thank you for the opportunity!!

  145. LOVE grapefruit…so summer-y!!!
    But would like to try pomegranate !!!! as well…
    thanks for the chance to try something new!!!

  146. I love the lavender hand soap, and anything grapefruit sounds perfect for summer!

  147. I would love the Morning Mint shampoo and conditioner (yes, that is technically two things! :)

  148. I love Archipelagos hand creams and it is very hard for me to even narrow down a favorite candle or home scent let alone body, but I do so enjoy waking up and putting on my daily grapefruit hand cream. It never fails that someone says How great I smell. But, as the days goes on and I hit the 4′ o’clock lull, I adore the mint as it is a little bit of mint but has some amazing other notes that make it girly and even soft. It’s the perfect mix to get me going.
    I’m still searching for those artists lofts books. I believe you have started something! You and Oprah. :)

  149. I would love ANYTHING Morning Mint and/or Milk! Love Archipelago products, period!

  150. The reed difusers look so lovely – and too many great fragrances to choose now… Morning Mint sounds like a good idea too! Fingers crossed!!

  151. I would love to try either the Magnolia Archipelago Reed Diffuser or the Vanilla.

  152. Anything…Anything….Anything Lavender!!! LOVE! Do I get an extra entry since I’m breaking from my vacay in Scotland to comment????

  153. I’d love the grapefruit body wash. Nothing like fresh citrus to wake up to in the morning

  154. I am truly interested in the morning mint body wash – what a way to start the day!

  155. The ARCHIPELAGO BOTICARIO DE HAVANA HAND CREME sounds delicious! Thank you.

  156. Love the sound of the mint flavored items, might have to try my hand and making my own.
