It's a week full of last minute shopping ideas for Christmas here on These City Days, but these products can be bought all year round, so here's an idea with that in mind. I was recently given the opportunity to pick a product from the Quinessence Aromatherapy range. I am a big fan or aromatherapy for relaxation, and have long had lavender products to use, but this time fancied something a bit different, so like a kid in a sweet shop I browsed and came across the Muscles and Joints Bath Soak.
The bath soak comes in a 200ml bottle and appealed to me because along with Cardamon, Majoram, Sea Lavendar, Irish Moss and Seaweed, it also contains Chamomile. I have never been able to stomach tea or coffee, so don't drink Chamomile tea, but have often read of it in association with relaxation and stress relief, so I figured, if I can't drink it, why not bathe in it.
The bottle arrived and I tested it out that same night, and for a few nights following. Although the branding on the bottle wouldn't stand out on a shop shelf among bath products, if I was browsing, I think the fact that it uses organic essential oils, and is SLS and parabens free would appeal.
It's been tried and tested a number of times now and I can safely say These City Days gives it the thumbs up. Some products on the market claim to be relaxing but don't really make a difference, this one however genuinely did help relieve some of my pre-xmas stress, and although at 6.99 it does cost more than I expected, as a treat I would buy it for myself, and use it occasionally when I need to pamper myself. I don't normally spend much on bubble bath unless it's a gift set, but this has converted me to the Chamomile cause.
