I know I'm alone in going through periods of disturbed sleep - usually it happens to me when the seasons change and then I am greeted with around a fortnight of struggling to get to a sound night of rest. It of course passes but for those nights, weeks or periods of broken sleep I have a secret weapon that may well help you count sheep in record time. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil.
I was lucky enough to trial this is mini form not so long ago courtesy of the Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath and Shower Collection and instantly feel in love with the luxurious vials of oil. As with any kit there is always a stand out favourite and for me that was Relax Deep. Now this aromatic pre-bedtime oil may just be my favourite night time bath and body product ever, I like to affectionately refer to it as a sleeping pill in a bottle it really is that good. For all those that have problems sleeping due to not being able to switch off or simply relax at night this is the oil for you, a blend of vetivert, chamomile and sandalwood combine to create a sleepy bed time potion that will have you counting sheep before you know it without a whiff of lavender.
As this is a deeply relaxing product I do not recommend it for morning use instead save it for a pre-bed time soak to soothe and easy away the stresses of the day and help prepare for a peaceful nights sleep. Speaking of an indulgent evening dip to use you simply add a capful or two to running water, climb in and enjoy the instant bliss. For those like myself who prefer to shower you simply take a capful of the oil and massage all over your body and then simply rinse off for soft, supple and beautifully scented skin. The heat of the water also helps to release the aroma and of course the benefits of aromatherapy.
With Autumn/Winter approaching at lightening pace I can not think of anything better to splurge on to make the colder weather that little more bearable.
