I’m super excited to share my latest bath and shower oil favorite: Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Bath and Shower Oil.
I was very fortunate to receive a bottle for review and I have been loving it!
If you’re unfamiliar with Aromatherapy Associates, they are an all natural luxury skincare brand based in the UK which create incredibly beautiful and skin-loving products for the face and body. Their products include top quality 100% pure cold-pressed natural plant oils with no added color or synthetic preservatives as well as all natural essential oils derived from organically grown, single species plants. They offer a wide range of lovely skincare products which are both benefit and nourish the condition of your skin as well as enliven the spirit and mind with brilliant essential oil blends in their products.
This Inner Strength Bath and Shower Oil, in particular, was created by their founder, Geraldine Howard, who formulated it as a way to help her find her own inner strength during her courageous struggle with cancer.
In a coconut oil base, this oil includes various essential oils to help you find your own inner strength.
- Clary Sage uplifts the spirit.
- Geranium and Rose help balance emotions and stimulation circulation.
- Frankincense helps clear your mind, focus and relax.
- Vetivert and Sandalwood calm, relax and strengthen you emotionally.
- Cardamom and Rosemary encourage physical strength in times of weakness.
My own experiences with using this bath and shower oil have shown the essential oil blend to be intuitive and rejuvenating while also calming and soothing my nerves.
There are two different ways to use this oil. The first is to lightly apply some to your body before getting into the shower. When I did this, I focused the oil around my chest and heart area so I could really get a sense and full benefit of the fragrant essential oil blend. Upon entering the shower, the heat from the steam and water release the EO blend in the oil and it truly is a relaxing experience.
The second way to use this oil is by adding a cap full to your bath water. The oil and scent is very nice to soak in if you’re in need of deep relaxation and want to calm your mind. It was so nice to just light my candles, put the oil in my bath and soak for 20 minutes in the oil and ambiance.
Both types of use with this oil will be relaxing, but the bath experience just immerses and allows you to linger a bit longer. I’d recommend the shower method if you’re short on time, but still want to zen out a bit before bed or if you’re particularly stressed about something.
This scent is somehow both very relaxing and uplifting which is strange because most times, EO blends will be one or the other, not both. You think it would clash, but it doesn’t.
Overall, this bath and shower oil is fantastic and absolutely lives up to it’s name Inner Strength. This is a fantastic choice for anyone who enjoys using aromatherapy to de-stress or who like indulging in a luxurious soak for relaxation. I think everyone has something to gain from it’s beautiful and natural fragrance blend and the natural plant oils will nourish skin and body while the EO blend nourishes your mind and spirit.
Although these products are certainly pricey and strictly luxury body products, I definitely think everyone should pick up at least one of these for special pampering sessions! This is absolutely worth a look and I’ll be purchasing more bath and shower oils from Aromatherapy Associates in the future as I’m officially a convert!
