I’m a huge fan of the bath. It’s the easiest way to feel indulgent and pampered without well, indulging! There is no better way to unwind than to light a few candles, dim the lights, and slip into a nice warm tub. I’ll put on a face mask and tackle a fashion mag or two, and an hour later, I’m relaxed and ready for bed.
The only catch is that you really can’t take a bath every day. (Don’t get me wrong, I would if I could, but my busy lifestyle just doesn’t allow for it.) It’s just too time consuming!
I recently discovered a product that helps to make showers a little less boring. Enter Smith & Vandiver’s Aromatherapaes Spa Shower tablets. You plop one of the tablets into the basin of your shower (not directly under the water flow, but close enough that it gets wet,) and voila! The aromatherapy molecules diffuse throughout the air and your boring shower just turned into an spa treatment.
Over the weekend I tested out the Energize (with orange, geranium, and peppermint essential oils) and immediately felt a boost in energy. The shower turned into a steam room and the entire bathroom smelled amazing hours later. I’m hooked.
The tablets come in two versions: Energize and De-Stress. I loved Energize, but am most excited to try De-Stress. It contains Neroli & Chamomile and smells incredible.
I don’t know why it took so long for a product like this to come around, but I’m glad it finally did… it’s simply genius!
The tablets retail for just $4.99 (for a set of 5) Get your own here.
