Over the weekend, I tried a couple of the AromaWorks Bath Oil products. I never really do get tired of extolling the virtues of an aromatherapy bath but I’m aware I do it quite often so I won’t go down that path again. Bearing in mind that Aromatherapy Associates is my favourite bath oil, it’s impossible not to compare AromaWorks Bath Oil with that. But, while it’s not AA, it does actually compare very favourably indeed.
Nurture is a blend of may chang, chamomile and sandalwood, intended to be comforting. I found there was a dash too much chamomile in it for my personal taste – chamomile can smell a little bit hay barn and never fails to remind me of being offered the chance at a spa to lie on a hay mattress as a treatment. £60. Yes, really. May chang is quite reviving, lemony and floral and I’m not sure the two sit together that well – I couldn’t pick up any sandalwood at all. But, while the oil doesn’t disperse in water, it was moisturising and left my skin delicately scented.
Serenity Bath Oil is much more up my street. There’s a slight sharpness to it with lemongrass, neroli and geranium that makes me think of it as more ‘treatment’ rather than a nicely scented bath. It’s obviously each to their own when it comes to any kind of fragrance. I did feel the essential oils are in a more dilute form than AA, but again, sensitivity to fragrance is variable depending on the person. At £34.50 each for 100ml, compared with £45+ for 55ml from AA, the AromaWorks Bath Oil selection is good value.
When those wintery nights draw down I think you’d be very pleased to have one of these. You can find AromaWorks Bath Oil HERE.
