Ecotique: Aromatherapy Stress Relief Blend Oil Review

Hello Readers,

Today i am going to review an essential oil from Ecotique. Its the Aromatherapy stress relief blend oil

Essential oils are good, powerful and are considered a natural remedy to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, relax the mind & body. 

This particular essential oil for stress relief is 100% natural and is a combination of Spearmint, Lavender Bulgarian, Lemon, Rosemary pure essential oils.

Lavender Bulgarian  helps in soothing and calming, Lemon helps in refreshing, Rosemary helps with stress, Spearmint helps in relaxing.

It comes in a blue transparent glass bottle with a screw cap. It also has a stopper inside. But when i got the bottle it was leaking. This is not travel friendly as per me. This 10ml bortle is priced at 499rs. Its shelf is 2 years from mfg date. The scent is medium types…not too strong and not mild either. 

My Experience:

I have used this quite a number of times by adding 3-4 drops in my bathing water. My entire bathroom gets filled with the scent of this essential. The scent gives so much positivity to my mind and provides the much needed relief. It brings a sense of calm and my mind is at peace. This is the best way to relax your mind and body after you have had an stressful day. With combination of so many pure essential oils it surely helps to cope with stress. This makes my bathing sessions so much more peaceful and gives me that luxurious feeling too. You can also simply add a drop of this essential oil to your cream and massage on your hands to help you relax. 

Pros

  • 100% Natural
  • Contains the best essential oils
  • Calming, relaxing, uplifting
  • Effective
  • Helps relieve stress

Cons

  • Not travel friendly
  • Costly

The soap  feels great on my skin. It lathers easily and does the job of cleansing well. Though it doesn’t smells fancy it gives a refreshing feel because it removes excess oil from the skin leaving it clean.

Ma Earth Botanicals Soaps Review

Long back i had received two soaps from Ma Earth Botanicals: Jojoba & neroli soap and Kaolin & Ylang Ylang soap. Today i am going to review these cute soaps. I had already introduced you guys to the brand Ma Earth Botanicals in my previous post where in i had reviewed a hair cleanser from their range. Check it HERE

Coming back to the Soap review….

All handcrafted soaps from Ma Earth Botanicals are made using the traditional cold process method. The cold pressed bars are made using natural plant-based vegetables, nuts, fruits, herbs, cold pressed oils, whole grain oatmeal, honey and pure essential oils. All their soaps cure for a period of 6 weeks before they are hand-wrapped. The soaps are Cruelty Free * No Harsh Detergents * No Artificial Colors * No Synthetic Fragrance * No Preservatives * SLES Free * Paraben Free.

These soaps came wrapped inside butter paper and had brand name & soap name written on it. None other information was mentioned on the packaging. The soap has cubicle shape and has a soothing smell. I cannot make out what it smells like but all i can say is the smell is nothing artificial or overpowering.

About Jojoba & Neroli Soap.

It is hypoallergenic, soothes and improves skin’s suppleness. Coupled with Neroli essential oil which not only has great therapeutic properties, but also the most incredible, uplifting fragrance. It has a relaxing effect on the mind and body, relieving muscle spasms, calming heart palpitations and a wonderful rejuvenating and regenerative effect on the skin, helping to soften scars and fighting stretch marks.

kaolin clay or “China clay” has excellent absorbant qualities. It draws out impurities and toxins and thereby clears the skin of excess oil, dirt and pollutants. Kaolin clay is recommended for both dry and oily skin. It reduces production of sebum and helps in healing dryness. Combined with Ylang Ylang essential oil, well-known for its calming effect on the mind and body, as well as maintaining emotional and spiritual balance.

Ingredients:Aqua, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Bolus Alba (Kaolin) clay, Sodium Hydroxide, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) essential oil.

My Experience: These soaps feel extremely smooth on the body and creates a creamy foam giving a luxurious feeling. It cleanse the skin so well without leaving it dry. These soaps melt super fast since they are free from preservatives & chemicals and hence these soaps need to be kept dry between each use. I totally love these soaps because they feel so great on my skin. Makes me feel fabulous.

So here i am again with another review about a natural body wash from Navarasas by Nikki. A body wash which is natural & free from harmful chemicals and infused with so many essentails oils that will leave your skin feeling heavenly 🙂

It comes in a see through plastic bottle with a flip cap. The packaging is pretty decent and travel friendly. Price and ingredients were not mentioned on this bottle. I guess thats because this was a sample for me to review. However i sent them an email asking for ingredients and they told me about it.

This is how the body wash looks like

My views & experience
The body wash has a soft & smooth and gel like texture. You can make out from the above picture. It has a nice lavender scent which i totally love. It helps relax my mind and body. The body wash lathers easily. However what i usually do is wet my bath sponge and pour a little body wash on it and rub gently on my body. This way it lathers more and is effective & you require less body wash in this case. The lavender smell keeps on emerging as i apply the body wash. My bathroom gets filled with the scent of lavender. The body wash gets rinsed off easily leaving my skin oh-so-smooth and clean. My skin feels new, fresh and hydrated. Its rich lavender fragrance makes me feel fabulous. However the lavender scent doesnt lingers with me. But that is ok. I am not very much a fan of highly scented products.i love this body wash for its natural and has so many essential oils present in it. Essentials oils present in it cleanse the skin gently without drying it out.
If you are looking for an all natural body wash then this is the one for you. It wont disappoint you.

My Rating 5/5

After using two products from navarasas back to back i am totally impressed with their products and the positive effect they have on skin. The body butter did heal my super dry skin and the body wash leaves my skin clean and softer.

So that all for today. If you have any queries or suggestions you can comment below and i will reply asap 🙂
