As much as I hate to admit it, autumn is nearly upon us. Although I’m a total summer girl and can’t stand the cold even slightly, there is something about the cosiness of autumn that’s actually pretty enjoyable.
A hot, relaxing bath during the A/W months is one of the few things that gets me through, and thanks to Absolute Aromas I get to be in full relaxation mode.
Absolute Aromas were kind enough to send me their Detox Salt Scrub, De-Stress Massage Oil and Relaxation Bath Salts, so I can officially become the calmest person ever. I’m definitely more of a bath salts/bath oil kind of girl as opposed to bath bombs, so I was super excited to try all of this stuff out.
The best part about Absolute Aromas’ products is that they’re completely natural and cruelty-free! All of the products I’m testing only contain essential oils and pure Himalayan salt, so you know it’s going to be good stuff.
DE-STRESS MASSAGE OIL
As a university student, and just a generally stressed out person a lot of the time, a De-Stress Massage Oil sounds like the ideal thing. Although this can (obviously) be used for massages, I prefer using it as a bath oil. You just add a cap-full to your bath to create the most relaxing bath ever – it’s pretty amazing stuff.
It contains sandalwood, chamomile and frankincense and has a beautiful, citrus-spiced scent which is so incredibly relaxing. I’ve used this in my baths a couple of times and I’ve never felt so calm, it truly gives me the best bath I’ve ever had. Plus, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturised – I absolutely love it.
RELAXATION HIMALAYAN BATH SALT
I adore bath salts – I’m a true believer that epsom salts can solve pretty much any problem – so I couldn’t wait to try this one. Pink Himalayan Salt is amazing for releasing tension and leaving you completely relaxed, so combined with the essential oils this will make for the most awesome bath.
This also has a spicy, citrus scent which is incredibly calming, but it also contains eucalyptus to really soothe the body. I’m obsessed with combining these bath salts with the massage oil for the ultimate relaxing bath.
DETOX PURE HIMALAYAN SALT SCRUB
Salt scrubs are my favourite form of body scrubs, they’re really exfoliating without being too harsh and don’t make a complete mess (I’m looking at you, coffee scrubs). The salt in this is the perfect size to give a really good scrub, but won’t irritate your skin. I especially love this because it contains oils too, so it moisturises as it exfoliates.
This also smells amazing (I sense a theme here) and is a lot more citrus-y and fresh than the others – perfect for energising the skin. I love that this not only exfoliates, but also helps to tone the skin and reduce cellulite – what more could you ask for?
I absolutely love all of these products, and I can’t wait to use them throughout autumn and winter. They really help me to feel a lot calmer after a long, hard day – something that will be essential in the upcoming months! If you’re a big bath person who loves having a pamper session, I’d definitely recommend checking these out.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments which product you’d like to try most! See you next time,
