Soaking in a bath with essential oils is an excellent way to relieve stress and turn an ordinary bath into a relaxing spa session but using body lotion to relieve stress was a novel idea for me. I figured it was well worth trying out and bought the Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relief Lotion and Wash 2 Piece Set.
I had earlier bought and reviewed this Aromatherapy Stress Relief 3-Wick Candle, also from Bath & Body Works, and loved everything about it. I have to say, the lotion and body wash are just as good as the candle, both for their stress-relieving qualities and also that wonderfully relaxing aroma.
You can, of course, get the benefits of aromatherapy for stress relief by using eucalyptus and spearmint essential oils in a diffuser or in a warm bath. But this Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion & Body Wash set takes it one step further. It works multiple ways to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated even after a crazy hectic day.
The stress relief lotion by Bath & Body Works is part of a line of products all dedicated to relaxation and stress relief.
What You’ll Get with the Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relief Lotion and Wash 2 Piece Set
With this set you’ll get:
- 1 6.5 fl oz / 192 ml bottle of Body Lotion
- 1 10 fl oz / 295 ml Body Wash & Foam Bath
The lotion is thick and creamy. It feels great when you rub it onto your skin, leaving it feeling soft and moist all day without feeling greasy. The non-grease factor is especially great as it means can use it multiple times a day whenever you need that fresh, relaxing scent without the cloying oily feeling.
The body wash is light and gentle on the skin and has a lovely, fresh aroma that feels relaxing and soothing – just what you need at the end of the day.
Both products are scented with eucalyptus and spearmint essential oils. In addition to giving both products a lovely, refreshing aroma, these oils also work together to help you de-stress. Eucalyptus essential oil clears the mind while Spearmint essential oil has an uplifting, feel-good aroma that eases your stress away.
The other ingredients that go into making the lotion and body wash are all carefully selected to support and complement the stress-relieving properties of eucalyptus and spearmint.
The fast-foaming body wash is infused with soothing skin conditioners, aloe, and bamboo extract. The combination of relaxing essential oils and natural ingredients benefits the body, mind and mood. Breathe deeply after applying to get the maximum benefits of the Bath & Body Works Body Wash.
The Bath & Body Works Lotion contains all natural ingredients and is formulated with nourishing ingredients to give the skin long-lasting moisture. Along with spearmint and eucalyptus essential oils, this fast-absorbing body lotion also contains Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
Massage the lotion gently onto your skin after a bath, before you get into the bed or anytime you need to unwind and relax. The aroma of the essential oils will help you to relax and unwind while the nourishing ingredients in the lotion will keep your skin feeling smooth and soft.
The scent of the lotion is mild enough that you can use it liberally during the day without worrying about it being too overpowering. This is especially beneficial if you have dry, itchy skin during winter and are looking for a mildly scented body lotion that you can use throughout the day and not just at night.
With its mild scent and all-natural ingredients, the body wash and lotion are both safe to use on sensitive skin too.
How To Use the Stress Relief Lotion and Wash for Maximum Benefits
To get the maximum stress relief benefits of the Bath & Body Works Lotion & B0dy Wash, breathe in deeply as you use in the bath or while massaging into your skin. The aroma of the eucalyptus and spearmint essential oils linger on your skin and you’ll feel the relaxing effects long after you’ve gotten out of your bath or applied the lotion to your skin.
