Aromatherapy Associates bath and shower oil review

Today's review is on the super luxurious Aromatherapy Associates miniature bath and shower oil collection.  As soon as I lifted the lid on these I was blown away by the deep and complex fragrances and literally couldn't wait to jump in the bath!


I'd never tried a bath oil before - usually I'd use bubble bath or a bath bomb - so I was worried I'd miss the bubbles or pretty colours in my bath.  Well, there was no room for missing superficial colours and bubbles, I was far too blown away by the beautiful smell.  These little vials of oil really pack a pungent punch (try saying that with your mouth full), and completely filled my whole house with a gorgeous scent.  The boyfriend even commented that he could smell it from the front room.  When I first tried one, it was around 10 in the morning before I went out, and when I came back at about 4pm, I could still smell the lovely fragrance as soon as I opened the front door.

So far I've tried the De-stress Mind and the Deep Relax bath oils, and both smelt amazing, but not in a perfumed, sugary-sweet kind of way like you'd get with a bath bomb - they smell natural and uplifting as each one is made with powerful essential oils like camomile, sandalwood, rosemary, geranium, frankincense and others.  Each oil smells different and offers a different kind of therapeutic aromatherapy experience.  I picked the de-stress oil to try first for obvious reasons, and had a lovely relaxing bath.

Bath oils leave your skin feeling really moisturised - I could actually feel a layer of moisture coating my skin when I was in the bath, and it left my skin smelling wonderful too.  This set includes 9 different bath oils to try, and each is enough for one bath, so it works out at a similar cost to using single bath bombs each time.  I've actually shared a few of the oils from this set with my Mum, because I'm nice like that, and I knew she'd love them.

You can buy this gift set direct from Aromatherapy Associates for £28.50 with free delivery.  They also sell their bath oils in full 55ml sizes which some in a beautiful box tied with a bow, and they have lots of other sampler gift sets (like this one) starting at just £12.
