Calm Your Mind and Rejuvenate Your Body with LATHER Aromatherapy

If you're wondering what the hell going on with my blog layout, all I can say is... Right now, I don't know. I got sick of looking at the layout and I want to do something new. The thing is, I couldn't stand to look at it, any longer the way it was so I stripped it down to the studs and my blog is currently living in this stark, minimal shell while I flip flop and dither over a new look. Want to know a secret? I'm kind of digging how clean and quiet it is. I like how my photographs take center stage and I love the delicate hints of pink in my links. I don't know... Maybe I'll install some black or pale pink social media buttons and a zephyr of pink accent and call it good. What do you think? Is this old blog clean and easy on the eyeballs or is it stark and devoid of character?

Like you came here to read my angst over my template layout.

Okay. Back on topic.

Lather recently sent me a beautifully curated collection of products to help me forget my busy, stressful day; relax tense, sore muscles and soften my skin while instilling a sense of well being and I thought I'd share them with you, today.

I wanted to take this picture with the incredible Lavender Aromatherapy Candle lit but I can no longer brain and I keep forgetting to pick up a candle lighter. 100% soy wax, a beeswax primed, pure cotton wick, natural lavender essential oil and lavender flower petals are poured into a limited edition frosted glass jar and topped with a shiny, silvery lid. This candle is as lovely to look at as it smells. Lather's soy candles burn so clean and evenly, deliver good scent throw and impart a soft, warm glow to my surroundings.

Add a couple of heaping tablespoons of Muscle Ease Bath Salts to a nice, warm bath and let the mineral rich combination of Himalayan pink salt and Epsom salt infused with eucalyptus and spearmint essential oils work together to soothe you, body and mind. The biggest fan of these salts in this household is my husband. After an especially hard or stressful day at work, he likes to relax and decompress in a hot bath and he has commandeered this jar for his own. I'm happy to let him have it; we all need a little something special just for us.

Ingredients:
himalayan pink sea salt, sea salt, magnesium sulfate (epsom salt), eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil, mentha viridis (spearmint) leaf oil, sambucus nigra (elderberry) flower extract, glycerin

lather-soothe-&-sleep-blue-chamomile-foaming-bath

Blue Chamomile Foaming Bath Treatment is just the thing to help me destress and sleep better, especially after a stressful day. A few caps full of this creamy, foaming bath treatment imparts skin loving botanicals like oat extract and moringa and coconut oils as well as amino acids that soothe and soften my skin while aromatherapeutic blue chamomile, blue tansy and lavender essential oils help to calm and quiet my busy mind.

Ingredients:
water (aqua), sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, decyl glucoside, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, stearic acid, glyceryl stearate, moringa oleifera seed oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower oil, panthenol, sodium pca, sodium lactate, arginine, aspartic acid, pca, glycine, alanine, serine, valine, proline, threonine, isoleucine, histidine, phenylalanine, phospholipids, fucus vesiculosus (seaweed) extract, yucca schidigera extract, glycerin, anthemis nobilis flower oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, tanacetum annuum (blue tansy) leaf oil, stearic acid, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, potassium sorbate

lather-soothe-&-sleep-balancing-sea-kale-body-oil

Body oil is a beauty product that I rely on to help keep my very dry skin soft and healthy and if it includes aromatherapy qualities as well, I am all for it. Balancing Sea Kelp Body Oil with Evening Primrose is a luxurious combination of evening primrose, rosehip and grapeseed oils deeply soften and renew my skin. Seaweed oil detoxifies while a mix of bois de rose, geranium and thyme essential oils present a warm, relaxing aroma that instills a feeling of well being. I like to massage this oil into my skin directly after I step out of my shower while my skin is still wet then pat dry and enjoy softly scented, smooth, comforted skin.

The scent of this golden oil is pretty powerful, straight out of the bottle but it dissipates and softens once it's on the skin.

Ingredients:
vitis vinifera (grapeseed) oil, bois de rose, vertivert, panax ginseng, hypericum perforatum (St. John's wort) oil, ocimum basilicum (basil), persea gratissima (avocado) oil, geranium, algae pheophycea (seaweed) oil, thymus vulgaris (thyme), rosa canina (rosehip) oil, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil, tocopheryl acetate, CAB oxy K (caprylic/capric triglyceride, PEG-8 and tocopherol and ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbic acid and citric acid)

lather-soothe-&-sleep-day-and-night-duo-balms

Day & Night Duo. Two tins of aromatherapy balms that help promote a sense of well being and balance, around the clock.

Revive & Thrive Awakening Balm can help awake and revive my senses when I'm feeling that mid afternoon lag or having trouble kicking it out of second gear, despite multiple cups of coffee in the morning. An uplifting combination of rosemary, clary sage, eucalyptus and spearmint clarify my mind and refresh my senses while the sweet citrus scent of mandarin orange imparts a bit of happiness and cheer.

The Quiet Night Relaxing Balm helps me to wind down, calm down and get ready for a relaxing evening and a good night's sleep. Hey, with my crappy sleep patterns, I can use all of the help I can get! A soothing mix of lavender, ylang ylang and calendula essential oils go right to my senses and I can immediately feel the tension lift.

Day & Night Duo balms are made with natural ingredients that moisturize my skin without ever feeling heavy or greasy. I touch my finger to the surface and the balm instantly starts to melt from the warmth of my skin. I can then tap it in on my forehead, temples or the back of my neck. If I'm feeling especially wound up, a little of the Quiet Night Relaxing balm right under my nose almost instantly chills me out.

If you love a pampering, sensory experience, if you're feeling stressed or your bod needs soothing after a hard core workout, Lather is there to make you feel better with their cruelty free, vegan aromatherapy treats.

What are your favorite Lather products? Do you think that you will add any of these beautiful things to your self care lineup?

    1. You did hit publish! :D And thank you for the kind words. I think I'm going to stick with a minimal look, for now but add a tiny bit of pink, somewhere. I like the idea of a whisper of a suggestion of colour. :D
