Active Ingredients

Black Pepper

Black Pepper Essential Oil is a powerful circulatory stimulant which helps to ease muscular aches and pains. Sourced from India, this Essential Oil stimulates, energises and warms.


Chinese Ginger Essential Oil warms muscles and joints whilst boosting circulation. This powerful Essential Oil stimulates the mind and aids with digestion.


Rosemary Essential Oil stimulates digestion and improves circulation. This also aids with clarity of thought and memory. It is a detoxifying Essential Oil which is effective for muscular aches and pains. It also helps to regulate the skins sebum.

I was originally introduced to this oil whilst at a spa. It seemed quite pricey at the time, but it has certainly helped me sleep better. This is really great in the bath. One capful, or two if I’m feeling indulgent, eases all tensions. It smells amazing. It’s a wonderful treat not just for my muscles, but body and mind as well, and perfect for a long relaxing bath or a quick shower.

I run regularly and I use this oil in my bath after every long run as I find it helps my muscles to relax and heal.

It’s amazing stuff, I would highly recommend it for anyone who exercises and wants to give something back to their body for working so hard. Bath oils have probably been around a lot longer than you think; the people of the Stone Age were known to combine olive and sesame oils with fragrance to create a soothing bathing experience. There is documentation that most cultures utilized bath oils for both luxury and aromatherapeutic benefits, as well as to counter dry skin.

Today, the use of bath oils has been refined to a science. And it is well known that when oil is mixed with water, it has an ability to penetrate deep into skin tissue and provide rejuvenation. Oil bathing is commonplace in South Asia, especially India, but it is also commonly practiced in the Western world, too.

Spas all over North America, Canada and Europe offer various oil treatments, and individuals who practice home spa rituals also make use of bath oils.

Aside from rejuvenating skin tissue, many claims have been made about the benefits of bath oils. However, oils baths are believed to build stronger immunity to viral and bacterial infections, and skin conditions. Due to there intrinsic warmth, they also improve blood circulation by dilating blood vessels; benefits include reduction in fatigue and stiffness in joints, and increased range of motion in joints.

Another obvious direct benefit of taking an oil bath is the resulting health and glow of the skin. Oil keeps the collagen in the skin supple. And the result is a younger and fresher look for a longer period of time. There are a plethora of different types of oils that work well in the bath – far too many to name here – but this De-Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil is my absolute favourite. You can buy it for £47 here. If you fancy winning a bottle of Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil for yourself, just enter via the rafflecopter below. Good luck!

  1. I have a technology free zone in my bedroom, no tv, computer, tablet and switch off the mobile ( or at least put it on silent). Pick up a good book, a mug of tea and snuggle with the dogs.

  2. It goes a little something like this, the evening to myself, the house is fairly clean, clean bedding, a pamper shower (a shower where I shave myself and exfoliate!), moisturize, clean PJ’s, a takeaway, diet cola, movie of my choice! WOW !

  3. A long hot bath followed by curling up in my armchair in my pyjamas with a good book and a large mug of hot chocolate. Rafflecopter entries are in my real name NIKKI HAYES, thanks for another lovely giveaway :o)

  4. I find the best way to destress is to meditate for a few minutes. I know a lot of people haven’t tried it before and may not know how to do it but there are plenty of videos on YouTube and even some deep breathing exercises can really help.

  5. I like to start the day with a nice routine, then it seems easier to get back to a relaxed state later in the day. Up a little earlier than usual, candles, chapter of a book with a cup of tea. Then I have 10 minutes of exercise.

  6. I did a pain Management course this year and one of the thing’s was to do relaxation music at first it was a bit weird but now i love it i do the guided mediation 🙂

  7. I have recently been taught a stress-reduction technique that you do with your pet (cat, dog, small furry). You hold your pet in your arms, in a comfortable position for both of you, or if your pet is too large to hold, lie down next to the pet. You then bury your nose in your pet’s fur and breathe in for a count of 4, hold your breath for a count of 2, then breathe out again into your pet’s fur for a count of 6. You repeat this several times, ideally for several minutes. It really works!
