Made in the USA

By  August 03, 2009

Bath & Body Works is one of our favorite go-to shops for deliciously scented, super-affordable soaps, body washes, shower gels, and the like. Their new limited-edition line, American Grown, embraces the same approach to bath and body products—with an even cooler twist! The American Grown line contains hand washes and shower gels in five scents inspired by great American destinations: Washington Apple, Siesta Key Lemon, Montana Sky, Savannah Mint, and Napa Grape. Each one also contains “invigorating botanicals grown right here in the U.S.,” so they really are American grown!

Here’s a rundown of what you can look forward to from each special scent:


Washington Apple—”In the fertile valleys of Washington State in America’s far west, growers tend orchards that produce the world’s most crisp, ripe apples. Formulated with Apple Extract to help nourish skin, Washington Apple instantly evokes your first bite of a shiny red apple, an unmistakably juicy flavor.”

Siesta Key Lemon—”Nothing says summer like fresh-cut Meyer lemons from Florida. Sweeter than other lemons, the plump, smooth-skinned citrus produces a sparklingly fresh fragrance. Take an instant vacation to Siesta Key as Lemon Oil refreshes and brightens the skin.”

Montana Sky—”Experience the clear, crisp quality of the mountain air in big sky country with formulas inspired by the vast beauty of an endless blue sky. Bathe your skin in calming spring waters as you inhale a rush of fresh air.”

Savannah Mint—”A frosty glass of iced tea in a hot Savannah summer is twice as refreshing with a cool sprig of mint. Breathe in this invigorating fragrance and experience the romance of southern charm and gentility while Peppermint Oil energizes your skin and your senses.”

Napa Grape—”In the rolling hills of Napa Valley’s wine country, the alluring scent of ripe grapes wafts through the air. Breathe in this irresistible fragrance and experience the intoxicating aroma as grape seed oil conditions and protects skin.”

These American beauties are only available until September, so be sure you grab the scents you want while you still can! The hand soaps cost $6.50 and the shower gels are $12.50, and they’re available in Bath & Body Works stores and on
