Product Rave: Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath Oils

I put these oils on my birthday wishlist and was super lucky to receive them from my parents this year. I've really wanted to try something from Arometherapy Associates but didn't want to splash out not knowing whether or not I liked the products. The miniture set is perfect for trying out the oils and I think more brands should do something like this! 

So, on to the oils.... 

Relax Deep - vetivert, camomile and sandlewood. Lovely after a long stressful day or if you need a good nights sleep. It really helped me to relax but I don't like the scent as much as Relax Light. Does what it says on the tin. 

Relax Light - lavender, ylang ylang and petitgrain. This one is one of my favourite scents and really helps me to sleep. Definitely one that I'm going to repurchase. 

De-Stress Mind - frankincense, petitgrain,  wild camomile and rosemary. This would be a lovely one to keep by your desk at work to inhale if you're feeling stressed. I LOVE the scent of this one! Can't get enough! 

De-Stress MuscleRosemary, black pepper, ginger and lavender. I've used this one the most to try and soothe my poor aching muscles. It's hard to tell if it helps or whether it's just the hot water that makes me feel better but the experience is relaxing and makes me feel better. I think it would be a great one for someone who has overdone it at the gym  or feels tense. 

Revive Morning - pink grapefruit, juniper berry and Rosemary. I can't say this made a huge difference to me feeling any more revived but then again I do have M.E. It's a lovely scent and feel luxurious. 

Revive Evening - geranium, ylang ylang, patchouli and sandlewood. This is one that I personally don't have much use for so can't really comment. May be good before a night out or something like that? I'm not really sure what the difference between Revive Morning and Revive Evening are. They smell differently but surely if you want to be revived, it doesn't matter on the time of day? I'm guessing Revive Evening isn't quite as revive-y (technical term) or strong as the Morning one.  

Support Breathe - pine, eucalyptus, tea tree and peppermint, perfect for if you are feeling anxious or have a cold. I used this a lot recently during a very anxious time and although it didn't cure my anxiety, it helped me to feel more relaxed for the duration of the bath and for a while after. 

Support Lavender and Peppermint - AA say that the main benefits of this oil are that it soothes and cools the skin. This is the only oil I am yet to use but I imagine it would be great for sunburn and is relaxing and soothing all round. It smells like lavender and peppermint as you would expect! 

Support Equilibrium - geranium, rose and frankinsence, not gonna lie, at first, I had no idea what "equilibrium" meant and had to ask my dad. This oil is designed to be to be emotionally balancing and uplifting. 

So there we have it, all 9 oils! Aromatherapy Associates have since added an "Inner Strength" oil which I am yet to try. All oils have been used in the bath, not the shower, as I am extra cautious of slipping. I would recommend them to anyone, especailly spoonies, anxiety sufferers and anyone who struggles to sleep or relax. They make a great gift and I personally think they are worth the £33. 

Have you tried any of these oils? If so, if love to know your thoughts.
