One of the greatest trials of living in a home requiring work is the absence of hot water during the early evening (our house inexplicably decides that there will be no hot water between the hours of 11am and 9pm). Despite showering for cleanliness right before bed or in the morning, there is a deliciousness to melting into a steaming bath after work or prior to an evening out; baths bookend moods and I’ve found that they can always be counted upon to shake off stress or arouse vigour.
While I may be suffering from a wont of a variety of bath times, you needn’t. In fact, bathing is about to get really exciting for one of you – my most recent discovery AromaWorks (who make an awful lot of brilliant bath products that combine nourishing formulas with excellently-blended scents) have agreed to offer a reader a selection of products.
First in the bundle is their Serenity Bath Oil. A blend of lemongrass, neroli and geranium essential oils, I whip this one out when in need of uplifting and a bit of calm – it’s less of a pre-bed one and more suited (I think) to after work or for a Sunday afternoon soak.
Next are their AromaWorks Aromabombs in Soulful. These are evening bath bombs in my opinion – the juniper berry and frankincense scent recalls wintery cosiness. I’ve said this previously but these are not the ghastly heavily-dyed variety of bath bomb that were popular about ten years ago – they’re more aromatherapeutic benefits and essential oils rolled into tablet form.
If you’re partial to a scrub, the third part of this giveaway will please you – the AromaWorks Body Brilliance Exfoliate in Nourish combines Himalayan sea salt, lavender, chamomile and sandalwood for a skin-smoothing treat. If you’re using this one, I’d say go easy on the bath product – the scent is pretty potent and really doesn’t need any help on that front.
Finally, AromaWorks have thrown their Nurture Body Oil in the mix for a post-bath treat. This is possibly my favourite product of the lot – I like to apply an oil right before bed so it has scope to properly absorb while I sleep and this chamomile and sandalwood is ever so soothing. The addition of rosehip oil is great for reducing any scar tissue on the body.
