I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
I’ve been a bath girl for a long time. When I was little I would get bored and would take a bath just because I thought it was fun. Now that I’m older I no longer bathe for fun, but I regularly take hot baths to relax my muscles at the end of the day. So I was excited to have an opportunity to try Aromafloria Aromatherapy. I was impressed to discover that Aromafloria products are manufactured in a USDA Certified Organic facility that is 100% wind powered. Ingredients are also sourced from fair trade markets worldwide.
I had a chance to try their Muscle Soak Collection as well as their Inhalation and Sleep Ease Beads.
Muscle Soak Collection
Ocean Mineral Bath Salts
The bath salts are meant to ease sore muscles with an aromatic steaming bath infused with healing essential oils and muscle relaxing sea salts. This was my absolute favorite product. I enjoy using bath salts, but often the scent will quickly disappear or be too sickening sweet. The scent from these salts lasted through my whole bath and made it very relaxing. These salts contain eucalyptus which is meant to relieve aches and pains, peppermint for soothing muscle fatigue, and lemongrass to combat exhaustion.
Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub
The body scrub is meant to cleanse away fatigue and invigorate the body with refreshing cool herbs and aromas. As of the writing of this review I’ve used about half my bottle of body scrub and I love it. I enjoy that the smell is very strong, it actually helps to clear my sinuses when I’m in the shower. It’s a fairly pleasant and peaceful smell but if you are sensitive to strong smells I wouldn’t recommend it.
Bath and Body Massage Oil
Bath and body massage oil seeks to relieve tired muscles from aches and pains with an icy hot massage. At first I thought I wouldn’t really be able to use this oil because my masseuse (ie spouse) was out of town, but I finally read the instructions and found that it’s also meant to be applied to your skin after a bath or shower. Additionally you can add 5-10 pumps to bath water for extra moisture protection. Needless to say I went for the bath option and was pleasantly surprised by oil’s performance. I did feel like it made a difference on my skin.
Foaming Bubble Bath
I can’t use bubble bath so my kids got a chance to test this out. I wondered if the smell would be too much for them, but they loved it. Their usual complaint about bubble bath is there isn’t enough bubbles, but they had no complaints this time.
Sinus Help Inhalation Beads
These inhalation beads strive to clear stuffiness and congestion with essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass. This is the product I was most excited and the most skeptical about. My sinuses are always clogged and none of the usual methods work, I just have to spend a lot of time being miserable. So I was skeptical that these would help me, but also hopeful that this could be an answer to my sinus problems. So far I’d say that they help when my sinuses are semi clogged, but if I wait too long then they don’t work for me (to be fair neither does any other medication known to man).
Sleep Ease Inhalation Beads
Sleep ease inhalation beads seek to use the restorative properties of essential oils that have been know to help quiet the mind and calm the body for healthy, natural sleep. I loved the smell of these inhalation beads. I placed them underneath my pillow and I appreciated the relaxing smell.
Overall I really enjoyed both Aromafloria’s Muscle Soak line and their Inhalation Beads. I love to pamper myself with good smelling bath products and Aromafloria was a perfect way to promote relaxation and muscle relief.
