Aromatherapy Associates

So, the festive season has passed, but I am definitely still enjoying some sneaky benefits.

One of these comes in the form of this beautiful limited edition star from essential oil experts Aromatherapy Associates, London. Every year they bring out a few pieces in their Christmas collection and this usually features a sweet little star that is the perfect edition to hang on your tree. The Star (£10)* contains a 9ml bath/shower "revive oil" that is perfect for the holiday season, when you are kickin' back for some R "n" R. The scent contains pink grapefruit, rosemary,and juniper berry and will be ideal for adding a little pep to your step after the festive slump and will ensure that you are raring to spring into 2016.

So, how is the quality?

First things first, I can testify that when it comes to this brand, good things really do come in small packages. Aromatherapy Associates are renowned for the quality of their oils used in each blend. They have almost been going for as long as I have, so after thirty years in industry I trust that they really know their stuff. Each blend of oils is honed for maximum effect and transformation of body and mind. The blend is extremely concentrated which means that the star will allow 3/4 baths depending how sparingly you use it.

The oils can be purchased individually and centre around different needs- revive, de-stress, inner support etc depending on what you need a little helping hand with. They can be snapped up throughout many luxury/high-end spas across the country or you can stop by Liberty London or Selfridges to pick one up a little closer to home.

Like I ever need an excuse to drop by!

How should I use it?

If you are anything like me, I try to ensure that I get maximum use out of each tiny bottle because quite frankly, this stuff is liquid gold. Just add a few drops into your bath under a running tap, swirl and let the uplifting scent fill your bathroom allowing the stresses and strains of daily living to simply drift away (well, for half an hour at least!)

Alternatively, I found that the oils are equally useful for a quick morning pick-me-up (before my first few swigs of java.) If I don't have time on my hands for a leisurely bath, especially on weekdays, I place a few drops between both palms and cup them around my nose and inhale deeply whilst in-shower. The heat of the shower water has the same effect and is the perfect way get a great start on your morning or to combat a strong case of "Mondaze". Oils like this can also be especially powerful for clear breathing if you are battling the last of that winter cold.

I would definitely recommend picking up a little something to try from Aromatherapy Associates as they certainly aren't widely hyped within the beauty blogosphere without good cause. Maybe you can't afford to splash out on one of their larger sets this time, if you act fast you might even grab The Star from your local Space NK or on-line at discount (£5). Now that I have sampled something from the range I will be sure to add it to gift ideas and wish lists of the future, oh yes.

Em, how long until my birthday?...
