If you're buying for a beauty junkie this year and are unsure where to start, look no further than the Aromatherapy Associates Festive Bath & Shower Collection, the ideal gift and one of my top picks for Christmas 2013.
here) but I've tried a number of the oils and can honestly say that the quality is consistently exceptional and I'm yet to try something from the brand that leaves me disappointed.
Containing ten x 3ml glass bottles of oil, the Festive Collection is presented in a striking cobalt blue triangle box to resemble a Christmas tree. Anyone unwrapping this may initially think they're receiving an interestingly shaped box of chocolates but the Aromatherapy Associates Festive Collection is far more indulgent and will most likely last longer than to the end of the Boxing Day movie too!
The Festive Collection contains Bath & Shower Oils in all of the fragrances available in the range, as follows:
Inner Strength- newly launched this year and designed with a blend of clary sage, frankincense and cardamom to help you find inner strength in challenging and difficult times
Relax Deep- I often struggle to unwind but this blend of vetivert, chamomile and sandalwood helps to calm and promotes a restful night's sleep
Relax Light- a gently relaxing blend of lavender, ylang ylang and petitgrain to help ease a tired mind and body
De-Stress Mind- a specially designed blend of frankincense, petitgrain, wild chamomile and rosemary to help to focus the mind and ease emotional stress without causing tiredness makes this oil a must-have for anyone under work or study stress
De-Stress Muscle- a miracle worker for gym bunnies and those who suffer from general aches and pains, with rosemary, black pepper, lavender and ginger
Revive Morning- wonderfully awakening with a blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry that's always handy the "morning after the night before"- the recipient will thank you on 1st January!
Revive Evening- a blend of geranium, ylang ylang, patchouli and sandalwood that help to revive for the evening ahead after a stressful day
Support Breathe- a blend of eucalyptus, peppermint, pine and tea tree to help clear the head, nose and chest
Support Lavender and Peppermint- a cooling and soothing blend that helps when you're not feeling 100%
Support Equilibrium- a blend of geranium, rose and frankincense provides emotional comfort and uplifting benefits
The oils are packed full with pure essential oils so a little goes a long way and I'd say that each 3ml bottle contains sufficient product for two uses.
The Festive Bath and Shower Collection would make the perfect gift for someone who's already a fan of the range, whilst also being a brilliant introduction to someone enjoys taking some me-time to pamper and indulge. The oils can be used as traditional bath oils or applied directly to the body before a shower (this is my personal favourite way to use them) so there's no need to try and guess if your gift recipient takes baths or showers.
Aromatherapy Associates Festive Bath and Shower Collection costs £35 and in my opinion, is worth every single penny. Highly recommended.
