Haul: The Bathing Garden Haul #10!

...I am addicted to The Bathing Garden and I don't care who knows it.

Shannon, the owner of this company, puts so much time and effort into her beautiful and delicious smelling wax treats that it's really surprising I didn't become addicted sooner.

She restocked a few weeks ago, and I was able to get a couple clamshells in my favorite scents, as well as some new to me scents. Here's what I purchased!

PS: she is not restocking her Etsy shop at the moment. She is currently using an "email me your order from the list of scents I put on my Facebook group" type of restocking. This allows buyers to have more time between restocks to look over the list or gather monies together. I like this system much better because it reduces stress levels that become inflated due to hectic ordering, LOL. Schwoot!
She always includes a little note, but this time, she included a cat paper! YEEEE! I love cool stationary.

  • Skeleton & Moss is described as "creamy vanilla is layered over black licorice."That's exactly what I get. The licorice note is definitely stronger. I am a fan of licorice, but Josh isn't, so I can see this one not going over so well. That skeleton grim reaper embed is absolutely amazing looking, though. SO COOL!

  • Old Time Holiday Shoppe contains "bubbling cranberry fizz layered with lemon curd." On cold sniff, I get about 90% fizziniess and cranberry, with minimal lemon curd, which is why I bought this in the first place. It's pretty nice, though, I've never been a fan of fizzy scents, but I am trying to expand my horizons. 
  • Winter Apothecary is perfection with "ribbon candy, spiced tea, a hint of cinnamon, and a flower shop in the snow." I absolutely love this one on cold sniff. It's sweet, a bit spicy, but you also get those florals in there, too. Not sure I'll melt this 2 cubes at a time like I do some other scents, I will try it with one to start. Can't wait until this one is cured!

  • Crystallized Spearmint & Peppermint (2) is pretty self explanatory, a wonderful and fresh burst of spearmint on the bottom and cool peppermint on top. We love this one at night, and it makes falling asleep a treat. REALLY! It's soothing, cooling, and overall, a fantastic blend.

  • Ghostly Brew is described as "apple cinnamon with fluffy marshmallow and marshmallow peeps." Yup! This one is accurate, too. The apples overpower pretty much everything, but you get a touch of cinnamon as well as some generalized sweetness. Pretty lovely!
  • Sleepy (2) is the mothership. The big one. The best one. My favorite. My love. My only. UGH. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Sleepy. It's Shannon's version of pink peppermint, but it also has vanilla, which sweetens it just a skosh. If I could marry one scent (besides FP's pink peppermint), it'd be this one. I often switch between FP's version and this one at night because I came to the realization that I don't want to sleep with anyone else at night...just pink peppermint.

And that's it! I didn't pick up too many tarts this restock, but I wanted to get some extra Sleepys, so I had an excuse to order. :P

What scents from The Bathing Garden do you like best? Did you order anything from Shannon's restock on November 6th? Let me know! :)


  1. I might have to try Sleepy. Seems like you like it a bit. =P

    I did place a small order (1 tart, 2 scrubs) but I think I might sneak another order in to get some small Christmas gifts for friends/coworkers. Someone said this is her last restock of the year....?


    1. It's really nice at nighttime, it's quite soothing for stress, too! I even asked Josh if I had said too much by saying I didn't want to sleep with anyone else...maybe I should have said anything else. :P :P

      Giving tarts and scrubs for Christmas is THE BEST idea! People love scrubs, right? I think I shall give one to my mom or grandma, they may appreciate a luxurious treat like that. Shannon's scrubs really are fantastic!

    2. People in OUR world love scrubs, but people in my real life world are more likely to be 'What is this? What do I do with it?' *sigh*


    3. No way, they will love it...don't you think?!

  2. I'm also an addict of TBG :)

    I think I ordered everything you didn't on the last restock. My order consisted of; Flowers & Frost, Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream, Graveyard Pumpkin, Deadly Sleeping Draught, Bubbling Butter Brew, Marshmallow layered Mango Tangerine, and Marshmallow Cookie Jar.

    I would have loved to have tried Skeleton & Moss and all the others but since I did multiples in a couple scents I refrained.

    1. Marshmallow Cookie Jar is amazing! Great order! :)

    2. I ordered 4 of them :) I'm a glutton for bakery scents!

  3. believe it or not I have not ordered from TBG yet. I have a few from destashes that I bought. I love bubbling butter brew!!
