Bodhi & Birch Siam Ginger Bath and Shower Therapy

Cold, dark miserable mornings make getting out of bed a really unwelcome task and that is what it is a task, a chore and something I do not want to do. Having dragged my backside to the shower, there is one product that is guaranteed to make me feel as alert and awake had I just hopped into a cold shower and it is by Bodhi and Birch - Siam Ginger bath and shower therapy!


"Invigorate and revive body and mind with an uplifting fusion of gingery Galangal Root, sharp Cardamom and fresh Kaffir Lime Leaf. Inspired by ancient remedies from the Far East, this is your home spa rejuvenation. Body and senses are vitalised and awakened. Skin feels refreshingly clean and alive with hints of ginger and spice"

Packaged inside this beautiful brown bottle with bright label, it isn't one you will miss when half asleep. The pump action dispenser is really handy to use and a few pumps onto the palms of your hand are more than enough to make enough lather to wash and cleanse your body. As the lather comes into contact with the steam of the water, the scent comes alive and literally kicks you awake and with this amazing list of ingredients, it is not a surprise:
  • GALANGAL - Warming oil with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, anti-oxidant and stimulant properties. It is great for muscle aches and fatigue. 
  • KAFFIR LIME LEAF - Kaffir Lime Leaf has a sharp, aromatic scent. An indisputably effective cleanser, it refreshes and uplifts the spirit, eases depression, anxiety and a tired mind. 
  • CARDAMOM - Cardamom imparts a fresh lemony fragrance that is uplifting, benefiting those who are mentally and physically fatigued. 
  • TURMERIC - Turmeric contains curcumin which is highly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Also naturally improves skin complexion. 
  • LACTIC ACID - Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid with anti-ageing and skin rejuvenating properties.
As well as waking me up of a morning, it also leaves me skin soft and smooth to the touch and you can also add it to your bath water which is perfect if you have aching muscles. I find that with a bad back, something I suffer from regularly, a bath with Siam Ginger helps to relieve that nagging ache.

This has been an absolute delight to use and one I wouldn't hesitate to purchase and one that is added to the 'must have' products for the bathroom.

  1. I have to admit, I am not a big fan of the smell of ginger, but I bet the ginger and galangal helps with aches and pains. I will tell my husband as he's a runner and it may help him when he's complaining of joint pain.
