One of my favourite ways to relax after a long day is by taking a long bath or a hot shower and pampering myself lots of lovely cruelty-free products. I like having an array of aromas to suit my mood. You may remember I reviewed one of AA Skincare’s face creams back in November (link here) and loved it so I am thrilled to be trying out their vegan friendly Peony, Bay & Brahmi Shower & Bath Gel.

I was really intrigued by this scent as I know what bay leaves smell like and I know peonys are pretty flowers but I had never even heard of brahmi. Well brahmi is a herb commonly used in ayurvedic medicine for a whole host of ailments including stress reduction. Anything linked to reducing stress gets a big tick from me! AA Skincare state the brahmi is also a natural antioxidant. Yay!
It has an enticingly sweet, herbal smell with a light floral background. I find the smell very uplifting and the bay and brahmi together are quite invigorating. This shower gel also contains the essential oils of stimulating rosemary, anti-inflammatory palmorosa, uplifting geranium and purifying tulsi powder. Perfect for your aromatherapy shower ritual. So far I have only used this as a shower gel but I am going to pour a little in the bath next time as I think that will be the best way to benefit from the essential oils.
AA Skincare do a whole range of aromas to suit all moods which makes me very happy as so far I have enjoyed using all of their products. I am looking forward to trying their Cedarwood & Spearmint scented products in the future as those are two of my favourite scents.
