The Edit: Mission Relaxation

Phone off, bubbles at the ready and the candles are lit! It's time for team pamper at the BBB HQ.

This Works Deep Sleep candle: £21 SALE, L'Occitane Almond Shower oil: £16.50, Aromatherapy Associates Mini Bath & Shower Oil Collection: £22.52 SALE

My mission is complete and utter relaxation and I'm going to tell you how I try to achieve it.

Now I'm all for low lighting and candles and to set the mood, my candle of the moment is the This Works Deep Sleep Candle, it's lavender and chamomile but if you're wanting a tranquil lavender haven, then this candle seriously disappoints. No scent, nada, zilch!

And while the candle is burning scentlessly away, I turn on the hot taps and get soaking. At the moment I'm alternating between the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil - originally intended for the shower but it works wonders in the bath. About a capful and you have a foaming and beautifully scented bath.

If I feel like pushing the boat out, I choose the Aromatherapy Associates Mini Bath & Shower Oil Collection, another beautiful smelling collection but not worth the hype. The scent lasts 15 minutes at most and this collection isn't the most friendly to the purse strings.

My pamper session seems to be a bit of a let down but the L'Occitane oil has saved the day, I'll be indulging in this and trying to burn the last of my scentless candle...


  1. Hahaha I love the honesty of this. When I saw the picture I was like oooo that looks perfect.. obviously not so much haha :)


  2. Hate it when candles don't have any scent, such a let down! The shower oil sounds fab though :)

  3. Hehehe , I really smiled because you are so brutally honest - enjoy burning a non-scented candel! <3
    Lots of love from

  4. I really love the pillow spray from the deep sleep range and was planning on getting the candle but don't think i'll bother now. Thanks for the post.

  5. I adore the Shower Oil, I got it in a set for Christmas and I'm definitely going to buy the full size, it smells amazing :-)

  6. Oh no! I have always been tempted to get Aromatherapy Associates oils, but this may have changed mind. xx


  7. I have been tempted to try the Aromatherapy Associates oil set but I will try for a more purse friendly option. Appreciate your honesty.

  8. This looks gorgeous, I need some pampering now!


  9. I would love to try the bath oils from the collection, your bath seemed so relaxing... Great Post!
