DSC_0109Artemisia V is a bath and body brand based out of Astoria, Queens. I stumbled upon these beautiful soaps while visiting an artisinal fair in Astoria. Artemisia V stood out among the other vendors to me. Their products were displayed as professionally as one much see in a store window. It was clear to me, from afar that Artemisia was the star of the fair.

DSC_0108Once I got closer, and got a chance to smell the products, I was blown away. The stand held a variety of scents such as Hot Chocolate, Pumpkin Pie, Chai Latte and Cappuccino. I was in soap heaven. I eventually left with the Lavender and Bergamot and the Hot Chocolate soap, but not before I spent 20 minutes inhaling the incredible smells.DSC_0115Not only do the products, smell incredible, but they also include ingredients that are beneficial to a variety of skin types and solve a variety of skin issues. Some of the ingredients include dead sea mud, which is terrific to clear pores. Tea tree oil, which is known to help fight acne and treat fungal infections on the skin. Sea salt to exfoliate the skin and get rid of dead skin. Coconut and avocado oils to moisturize the skin. Every ingredient added to the soaps is listed in bold, large letters right on the label. Artemisia V does not hide a thing from its customers. The labels, even say when the product was made and how long the item will last.

DSC_0111All of the products that Artemisia V sells are under $9.00.  According to their website, the products will now be available to purchase online on December 15th. (Today.) The items are beautifully wrapped and it is clear how much thought and preparation went into the packaging of every single item. While at the fair, I spoke to two of the salespeople about the product. They both appeared to be very knowledgeable about the ingredients inside of the products and answered every question I had with enthusiasm. The duo really seemed to be passionate about their products.DSC_0116I would highly recommend checking our their products. The soaps would make a terrific gift, as they appear to be far more expensive and luxurious than their prices reflect. It was truly a joy speaking to the sales team and I look forward to using the soaps I purchased.
