One of my favourite ways of grabbing a little me time is to have a bath. I love being immersed in hot water, and of course there is the added bonus of it being the only room in the house with a lock, in theory guaranteeing a few minutes peace. (In reality I often have to get out to let in a small child who has decided now is the time they need a poo….the joys of parenthood eh?!).
Friday was one of those days where nothing really went to plan – a child home poorly, a soggy school run where I got soaked to the skin and an all round tiring and frustrating day meant by the time the evening came around I was desperate for a bit of peace as well as the chance to warm up after getting soggy and to sooth my aching muscles. I was also itching to try out the Olverum Bath Oil I had been sent a sample bottle of.
What they say;
“Olverum is a highly concentrated, therapeutic bath oil which contains 10 pure essential oils, carefully blended to work together, and a very effective way to naturally relieve stress and help you achieve a great nights’ sleep. The formulation has remained largely unchanged for 83 years, and until now has only been known by a cult following in the UK. Now beautifully re-packaged, yet still retaining the same formulation loved for eight decades by it’s passionate devotees, Olverum recently launched under new British ownership.”
What I say;
I loved it. When sniffed from the bottle the smell is a little over-powering – however this is because it is designed to offer maximum effects from just a small dose in your bath. Once swirled through the hot water, the smell was gorgeous – it really reminded me of the odd time I have been lucky enough to visit a posh spa. It is a multi-layered scent – starting off with rosemary, travelling through pine and lavender and ending with gorgeous citrus notes. It was a delight to lie back and inhale as I soaked away the stresses of the day. It also left my skin feeling really soft, but not at all greasy which I have found a problem with some bath oils in the past. The smell lasted well on my skin too – and I drifted off to sleep with the subtle scents some hours later. Lovely. Really lovely – it is quite a pricey product, but one bottle goes a long way and it really does feel like a luxurious treat.
And one of you will get the chance to give it a try for yourself, as Olverum have offered you guys the chance to win a 200ml bottle (worth £36.95).
