In this awful weather, there’s nothing better than having a soak in a relaxing hot bath. My two current faves are Clarins ‘Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate’ and Organic Surge ‘Lavender Foaming Bath’.
I’d seen so many rave reviews about Clarins Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate that I wondered if it would live up to the hype. It does and then some. For bath use, pour under running water so it can foam, spread said foam over your body and then inhale the essential oils of basil, geranium, chamomile and petit grain to feel well and truly relaxed. If you are more of a shower person, simply apply a small amount (a little goes a long way) onto your shower sponge. It smells wonderful, doesn’t dry the skin, feels indulgent (don’t all Clarins products) and I don’t want it to ever run out.
The Clarins label does say it’s for adult use only so if you have little ones in your house, try 98.7% Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Foaming Bath. It contains calming lavender and geranium and is SLS and paraben free. I pour a capful into their bath and let them have fun with the bubbles in the hope it will help then sleep soundly. And wake up later!
