I must confess to having a soft spot for essential oils and aromatherapy, no mater how much of a mumbo-jumbo they can be at times. As far as I’m concerned, if it smells good to me and makes me feel comfortable and happy, it works! I’m quite sure many of you feel that way.
I also confess to a secret pleasure in having a bath. A proper luxurious bath, scented with calming essential oils and sprinkled with bath salts to soften the water, and no one to disturb. Just precious me-time. What wouldn’t I give to have a tub at home! If I did, I could luxuriate with these Aroma Salts from Amphora Aromatics more often than I currently do.
I was sent these 2 tubs of Aroma Salts by NattaCosme, an online beauty shopping site that stocks this brand, amongst other more well-known cosmetics brands and products.
I found these intriguing despite not having a bathtub at home, because according to the blurb on the cover, these can also be used as room fresheners. Just open the cover of the tub, and allow the scent from the essential oil infused dead sea salts to waft through the room.
I was having a lot of trouble sleeping at this time and I thought something that said Goodnight Sleeptight would do the trick. With lavender and chamomile infusing the bath salts, what could go wrong? Nothing, I’d warrant.
Unfortunately, it was wrong for me. The smell of Goodnight Sleeptight is a very sharp smell that wasn’t very pleasant, nor very relaxing. It even made me feel a little nauseous so I got back up in the middle of the night to shut the tub and stick it in a corner of my cupboard. But there was a saving grace! (Thankfully!)
