Baths have become my guilty pleasure. I went through a stage of not having had one for about four years (no jokes here please about smelling) but now they’ve become a weekly treat. I don’t like bubble bath (the bubbles get in my mouth and freak me out, but that’s another story,) so I usually use Radox bath salts which dissolve into the water. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of products from Aromatherapy Associates and this morning I gave their bath oils a whirl… or a soak.
The Essential Travel Oils kit contains four different oils meant for taking away for the weekend or as a gift – Deep Relax, Revive Morning, Revive Evening and Support Lavender & Peppermint. The kit is really cute, coming in its own little case which houses the four 7.5ml oils perfectly. This is a perfect introduction to the range, giving you enough oil to fully experience each variant. The instructions say add two caps to your bath… I thought ‘how the hell are two little capfuls going to be enough?!’ But they are! I plopped two caps into the bath and instantly the hot water made the scent fill the room. In fact, it pretty much filled my whole flat for a few minutes!
I like my baths really hot and practically overflowing so I probably needed three caps to get a fully intense result, but two is more than enough if you want a subtle scent. It really made me relax and the smell coming out of my bathroom was amazing. You should get three baths from each oil, meaning you get twelve baths overall – this works out at about £2 a bath (sorry for the maths!) which I think is good value for a little treat. Especially when you can easily spend £3.50 on a bath bomb. Definitely one for the Christmas list.
