Aromatherapy Associates Amazing Oils

It is very rare that I get a cold, or any illness come to think of it, but when I do, I get the worst kind possible. I was very kindly send some Aromatherapy oils to try and test at home from the Revive Evening** and Breathe Support** ranges to see if they would help.



The first thing that struck me was how cute and dinky the packages are, not too mention great colours which are definitely eye-catching.

The Breathe Support range I have come in the form of a bath and shower oil and a breathe essence, designed to reduce stuffiness and congestion and ease your breathing. Two of the things I needed the most with particular cold because I was bunged up, had a headache, couldn't breathe out of nose and was very miserable and feeling sorry for myself.

Aromatherapy Associations described Breathe Support as being

"A refreshing, antibacterial inhalation essence. Eucalyptus, peppermint and tea-tree lend their soothing properties to maintain clear breathing"

With the Breathe Essence, you are advised to either sprinkle a few drops of this antimicrobial blend onto a tissue and breathe in deeply or it can be used on the Aromatherapy Associates Home Fragrancer. I don't have the latter, so what I did instead was to sprinkle a few drops onto either side of my pillow and wow, as soon as I removed the lid from the bottle and did the first sprinkling, it took my breath away, more so because I could instantly breathe and with a feeling of relief that I would be able to sleep and not give myself a headache with the constant sniffing, I was one happy lady.  A 10ml bottle has an RRP £18

The Support Breathe Bath and Shower Oil again is amazing. I have used it in both the bath and shower and my preference is the bath, because having added a capful to hot running water, the vapours envelope you and help ease everything from a blocked nose, a tight chest, congested sinuses and general
cold and flu like symptoms.  A 55ml bottle is priced at £44.




The Revive Evening Bath and Shower Oil (there is also a morning version) and it Enhances feelings of self esteem and sociability and Increases confidence. Using the instantly reviving powers of geranium, ylang ylang, patchouli and sandalwood to re-energise you for the evening ahead . For me, if you need something to get you ready for a tough week ahead, this oil is the one you need, as with Breathe Support, you can use it in the bath or in the shower and for me, I prefer to use this in the shower, again the scent mixes with the water vapour and it comes to life and really awakens your senses. Alternatively if you have a big night ahead, you can use it to get yourself geared up and ready to go out partying.


I have to say that I am incredibly impressed with all three products. The Breathe Essence is amazing for anyone who has a cold because it really does help and for me this is now a staple in my medicine cupboard because I have never come across a product that works as well as this one. Both of the Bath and Shower Oils have also won their way into my heart, from relaxing and chilled out to being hyped up and ready to go, you have everything you need in both of these too.

Have you ever tried anything from Aromatherapy Associates? Do you have a favourite product?

  1. They sound amazing. The aromatherapy oil must be perfect for letting you breath despite a heavy cold. There's nothing worse, in my opinion, than suffering this way.

  3. I used to use a menthol bubble bath sachet from Montagne Jeunesse but since they stopped production I've been looking for something similar as I don't usually like to pour raw oils into a bath. I recently discovered olbas now sell a bubble bath but this Is also a brand I would consider. Great post!xx
