Yesterday was welcomed by a beautiful fuchsia box complimented with gold lettering from Aromatherapy Associates. A bath and shower oil named Inner Strength. Fortifying and inspiring. Inside the box was this adorable bottle with a vintage Victorian pharmacy look, a lot like a little magical potion. This smells amazing. I don’t use that word lightly. Orgasmic. It’s impossible to distinguish all the specific scents but the one that stands out to me most is frankincense. This is joined with sage, cardamon and a bundle of other fabulous oils. It claims to be able to help find your inner strength in troubling times. I wasn’t aware oils could do such a thing but you never know right? Running my nightly bath I put this baby to the test. It says to add two drops which I thought wouldn’t be enough. To my pleasant surprise it filled the room with fragrance. I felt relaxed and afterwards my body felt noticeably smooth and silky. Whether it helped me find inner strength is another matter, at the very least I felt a little bit more fancy. This is a luxury item, retailing at £39 for 55ml (yikes). Thankfully my sample should last me quite a while yet!
Have you tried any products from Aromatherapy? Would you pay that much for a bunch of oils?
