After reading about how I have started running, and how I liked to have a bath after a run, Aromatherapy Associates asked if I would like to review their Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil.
In all honesty, I am not used to using good quality bath products. I tend to get nice gift sets at Christmas but the rest of the year I use whatever is on offer and tend to choose the one I want because of the colour or scent rather than what the back of the bottle says it will do. With this in mind I was interested to see whether adding something to my bath could really help me to relax.
Having a bath has long been my one time to relax properly. It’s the one time I can tune off from everything else and I only have a bath when Dave’s home so that i don’t have to get disturbed by the children or anything else. I love to spend an hour in the bath, having me time and just taking a moment and I have made sure that since the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil has arrived that I have gone running and had a bath as often as possible – obviously to give it a thorough review but I have also loved having such frequent baths – quick showers in a rush just aren’t the same!
I have been adding a capful of Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil to my bath instead of my usual bubbles and the smell is wonderful, lavender, rosemary and a hint of ginger. They are the smells that could easily send me to sleep and the combination of the relaxing bath and the oil definitely work when it comes to relaxing. My muscles also feel refreshed after a bath, which is usually the case anyway, but a bath with Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil in it is definitely more appealing after a run than my old bubble bath. You can also rub yourself in the oil before having a shower but my preference is definitely to add it to a lovely hot bath.
For me, having the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil has felt like such a treat and a very welcome indulgence. In everyday life I don’t get that many opportunities to treat myself but the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil is so long lasting that buying it every few months would be a great investment and a lovely treat for myself.
