Nothing says "fall" like the soothing scent of almond. Try these treats to put you in an autumn state of mind.

At the sink
An eco-minded friend turned me on to the wonders of Dr. Bronner's magic soap. Get a foaming pump bottle and add a 1:4 ratio of almond soap to distilled water. You can also use this multi-purpose product to clean floors and wash clothes.

In the bath
Crumble a bit of the Marzibain bar in your bath to make mounds of almond icing-scented bubbles. Warning: a little crumble goes a long way!

Before bed
Smooth on some skin-soothing body lotion for sweet dreams. This delectable stuff contains organic almond oil, sunflower oil and shea butter. And somehow, it's so not greasy.
