Because why not?

Aromatherapy Associates - Star Jewels Christmas Set*

15 December 2016

I have a huge amount of respect for the power of aromatherapy so when I was asked if I would like to try out an item from the Aromatherapy Associates Christmas line I happily accepted.

The Holiday line consists of 6 gift ideas ranging in price from $22.00AUD to $138.00AUD.

I was provided with the Star Jewels set which retails for $70.00AUD and contains 3 x 9ml bottle of bath and shower oil. It is recommended to use 1/3 (or two caps full) of a bottle in a warm bath or 1/3 of a bottle massaged on to your body in the shower while taking slow, deep breaths to obtain the benefits of the aromatherapy properties.

Aromatherapy is believed to stimulates the part of the brain connected to smell - the olfactory system. Through the inhalation of essential oils a signal is sent to the limbic system of the brain that controls emotions and retrieves memories.

The oils included in the Star Jewels kit are Deep Relax which helps encourage a good night sleep, De-Stress Mind to assist with clear thinking and focusing thoughts and Revive Morning to help awaken the senses and get you ready for the day.

I'm not much of a bath person, for the sole reasons of not wanting to wash the bath before use and not really having the spare time to soak in one so I have been using these in the shower, I like to apply these after washing my body with a standard shower gel and while standing outside of the shower stream for just a minute or two I give myself a body massage with the oils, as the scent of the oil fills the shower I take deep breaths and when I'm ready I simply rinse off the excess, my skin is left feeling soft and hydrated without being overly slick or greasy.

I really love that Aromatherapy Associates have made accessing suitable aromatherapy blends easy, when I was young my Mum would spend hours in health and well-being stores choosing oils and carriers to take home and mix up herself, we literally had a cupboard dedicated to tiny bottles of essential oils and large bottles and tubs of carrier oils and creams, now we have the option of buying blends that are ready to go rather than finding the time to research and purchase the type of blend we need for the issue at hand.

The Aromatherapy Associates Star Jewels set retails for $70.00AUD and is available at Sephora Australia or Aromatherapy Associates.

Links provided are for shopping examples only, I have personally purchased from some (not all) of these online stores but I highly recommend researching before buying.
