Pros: Relaxing; Refreshing
Cons: no bubbles; may be too strong for some people
Are there ever times when you need something to help you relieve daily stresses in life? Most of the time I find myself diving headfirst into something chocolate, but that can be damaging to my waistline, so Ive tried to find other ways to relax and relieve stress. Origins says look no further!
~*~Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind Tension Releasing Vapor Bath~*~
Vapor Bath? Ya mean like the Johnson & Johnson kiddie vapor bath? Nope this one is for adults only, and its an indulgence, not a task! This product comes packaged in a 6.7 ounce plastic bottle with the Sensory Therapy logo on it. The Sensory Therapy product line was put out by Origins to provide us with products to aid in stress relief. This product is a white, creamy lotion that is to be used in a bath to soak and relax. It is not a bubble bath, but more of a soak. I like bubble baths, so at first this was odd for me, but you get used to it.
Origins claims regarding this product (taken from website): Wellness wisdom says: When stress builds up in your body and you're edgier than an octagon, immerse yourself in this milky sea of tranquility. The physical sensations of tightness and tension leave your neck, shoulders, back and limbs as soothing Basil, Peppermint and Eucalyptus help your stress-battered-body blow off steam. Sink in, allow your eyelids to become heavy and relaxed. Take a deep, easy breath in and allow stress to melt away as you exhale out every so slowly.
Simply pour a small amount into the running water and watch your bath transform into a sea of tranquility. It will leave the water cloudy and somewhat creamy, but this is normal. Again, I wasnt used to a cloudy bath with no bubbles, but I got used to it.
Ingredient Listing: aqueous infusions; citrus aurantium (orange) blossoms, mentha piperita (peppermint), glycerin, aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) gel, polysorbate 20, cococaprylate/caprate, sorbitol, mentha piperita (french peppermint), ocimum basilicum (basil) and eucalyptus dives (piperitol) essential oils (olea), potassium cetyl phosphate, dimethicone copolyol, aleurites moluccana (kukui) nut oil, pantethine, chondrus crispus (carrageenan), hydrogenated vegetable oil, cetyl alcohol glucose, xanthan gum, potassium carbomer, carbomer, disodium edta, sodium dehydroacetate, phenoxyethanol,
methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben,
This product definitely has a strong scent, so consider yourself warned! Thats the whole point people! The scent is very strong peppermint smell that is sure to open your sinuses if nothing else! As you sit and soak in this delightful bath, the scent relaxes you and eases away the tension. Its not a miracle product, but it is quite relieving. I love to use this if I have a cold or the sniffles, as it opens my sinuses and nasal passages right up!
Again, the scent is not faint by any means, so it will leave a hint of the fragrance on your skin after your bath. I have no problem with this since it disappears by morning when I awake.
Even though I have noticed some sensitivity to facial cleansers with mint-type ingredients, this product has not irritated my skin at all. Im sure that is partially due to the fact that I do not use it 2 times per day! I only use this every once in a while, so I havent had any reactions or problems from it at all.
If you need to relax, relieve some stress or just soak in a warm bath, youll probably love this product! I enjoy it and would recommend you try it also.
If you dont like any sort of minty scents or fragrances, um, Id say stay FAR FAR away from this!
I think this stuff would make a great Christmas gift since its a stress reliever AND it smells like Peppermint candy canes! HA! Use it as a stocking stuffer!
