Long time readers know how much I love to take a few minutes to pamper myself at home. With an exhausting schedule, finding the time for a little pampering can be hard. I definitely don’t have the time to visit a spa. So when the folks at Essio contacted me about reviewing their Aromatherapy Shower Kit I knew this would be a perfect way to add a spa-like experience to an everyday, ordinary shower.
Shortly after receiving the Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit, however, my family and I were hit with the cold that seems to be making it’s rounds. Being sick is no fun and sometimes it takes a lot of energy just to shower. I know that any time I take a shower or bath while sick that I typically feel a lot better afterwards so I decided to hook up the aromatherapy diffuser to my shower and try it out. Hook up was really easy. It snapped easily to my shower head. Since I was dealing with a cold at the time I used the Breathe pod first. The Breathe pod is used to help decongest. The pod easily screws into the shower attachment and then can be bent down to just barely hit the stream of your shower. This fills the entire bathroom with the fragrance of aromatherapy essential oils.
Does it make you feel oily? No. I thought that I would be able to feel the oils on my skin after using the aromatherapy diffuser but I couldn’t. I loved how it scented my shower experience and when I used my body wash the two paired together for a completely different scent. My hair nor my skin felt oily afterwards.
There has been lots of buzz around the interwebs about the benefits of using oil in your beauty routine. I think Essio’s aromatherapy shower kit is an easy way to incorporate the relaxing, invigorating scents of specially blended oils into your everyday routine for a unique, spa-like experience in the comforts of your own shower. The starter kit comes with 3 oil pods: Breathe, Passion, and Unwind. Aimed to relieve stress, decongest, and awaken desire. These 100% organic, pure oils are blended with scents like Lavendar, Orange Sweet, and Peppermint with many other pod blends to choose from.
I liked how just adding these aromatherapy pods to my shower made me feel a bit more relaxed and pampered. The scent from the oils lingered in the air for a bit afterwards but were undetected on my skin and hair. I think that incorporating oils in your everyday beauty routine whether through a shower, body wash, or cleansing routine is a great way to add that spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home.
