As you may know, I’m no stranger to RainPharma’s products and I use their skincare on a daily basis. What I really like about their products is that they have a very nice smell; a bit on the herbal side. So when I heard RainPharma had a new line based on aromatherapy and essential oils, I was very curious to see what they had come up with!
Aromatherapy is the use of plant materials and essential oils to alter one’s mood cognitive, psychological or physical well-being. I don’t “practise” aromatherapy but what I do believe in is the importance and influence a scent can have on yourself. So while I don’t use essential oils to help relieve a headache or something else, I do enjoy using them with a diffuser to create a nice smell in the room.
I love the scent of citrus, peppermint or rosemary and eucalyptus so that’s something you might occasionally encounter when walking into my bedroom. Why exactly those scents? It’s no surprise if you know that citrus & peppermint are scents for calming down/relieving anxiety. Rosemary & eucalyptus are the perfect scents for stimulating mental activity; no wonder I loved putting those two together to diffuse in my college dorm room! And keep in mind that at that time I had no clue about the effects of that combination, I just really loved the smell but couldn’t put my finger on why exactly… Now I know why! ;)
RainPharma Aromatherapy Essentials
Who else only really wakes up in the shower because of their energising shower gel? That’s right: RainPharma now has new products that involves aromatherapy! Think plant-based shower gels and essential oils. The shower gel speaks for itself, but you can use the oils in different ways. You can put them in a diffuser, make your own roomspray or just pop a few drops in your bath for a relaxing evening.
RainPharma now has 10 scents in their aromatherapy essentials range:
Eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, lemongrass, lime, orange, peppermint, pine, rosemary and sage.
All of these scents are available as a shower gel and essential oil. Because the oils are very precious and each have their own value, prices differ between €29 – €49 for the shower gels. The essential oils are between €11 – € 36.
Let’s take a look at my favourites:
My choices between the new scents are definitely rosemary, peppermint and lemongrass. I love scents that either calm you down or energise you – there’s no in between for me! ;) The scent of the shower gels are also not too penetrating – the smell lingers on you, but softly. What I also love about these new products is their packaging. It’s so simple yet stylish, so it’s guaranteed to look nice in every bathroom.
For those interested in the room spray, you can buy an empty bottle completely in RainPharma style. Add distilled water, alcohol and a few drops of your favourite essential oil and boom. You’ve got yourself a room spray!
Can’t choose between all these new and lovely scents? No worries, RainPharma has got you covered:
They have two packages, one for the shower gels and one for the essential oils. Both are filled with all 10 of the new scents, so you don’t have to choose! Or you know – gift a few to your friends. Sharing is caring! :)
I think I will go for a peppermint or lemongrass shower gel for instant shower happiness! Do you have a favourite scent?
