When I’m not blogging, I’m actually a grad student, and although there are lots of things I love about this (flexible hours/vacation, my area of study) there are definitely times when it can be very stressful, so I definitely appreciated when the L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Bath Salts* and Exfoliating Shower Gel* arrived in my mailbox (they even got an Instagram post!)
The L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing line uses aromatherapy to help reduce stress thanks to scents like lemon, eucalyptus, thyme, cypress and juniper berry. The L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Bath Salts comes with 5 bath salt tea bags that you can hang from your faucet so that it infusing throughout your bath. The bag means that all the good stuff steeps through (like tea!) but there’s no clean up afterwards.
The L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Bath Salts are more subtle in the bath than I expected, but they do provide a light, therapeutic scent as well as helping to relax your muscles and soften your skin. However, it almost makes me want to use two in a bath which would be a pretty costly expensive. That said, a nice benefit of using bath salts instead of bubble bath is that I don’t have any issues washing my hair in the water.
There’s also the L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Exfoliating Shower Gel, which definitely has a stronger scent than the Bath Salts although I don’t find it overwhelming. I almost find this shower gel to be a bit invigorating, but it is also just refreshing to use. It’s a very gentle scrub with a light lather that could definitely be used daily.
The packaging on both products is also great, I love the vintage feel but also how functional they are (I really hate when shower gel bottles are hard to squeeze!)
In addition to the two products share here, there’s also a L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Massage Cream, Face Mask and Black Soap available. The special thing about this line is the scent, and I really feel like it meets the ‘rebalancing’ claims as I feel both refreshed and relaxed when using it. I find baths very helpful when I’m stressed, so pairing the L’Occitane Aromachologie Rebalancing Bath Salts and Exfoliating Shower Gel together was a great combination.
Do you ever use aromatherapy?
