Bath & Body Works | Aromatherapy Review

Product Reviews : , , , | Comments Off on Bath & Body Works | Aromatherapy Review


Back in the late fall 2013 Kevin, Angel and I were on another hunt for products to cure little man’s dry skin. While I did my due diligence getting a hit from every candle in Bath & Body Works the guys sampled lotions and moisturizers.

Finally settling on two scents they brought me the options. I chose the one Kevin liked less, obviously, but I stuck to my guns and it changed my life. I know this sounds like a crazed exaggeration, but follow me here.

The lotion he was offering was the Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Body Lotion in Stress Relief. The scent was Eucalyptus Spearmint. The formula was smooth and silky, just thin enough to absorb quickly and well without being watery. I added it to Angel’s bedtime routine and was impressed both with its moisturizing effects as well as that it did seem to help him wind down even more than our usual nighttime lotion efforts.

I was so pleased with it that when the Body Cream went on sale for about $4 I made a special trip to grab some and give it a try. I was disappointed to find the Stress Relief Body Cream was sold out, so I settled on two of the Sleep in Lavender Vanilla.

This one was considerably thicker and the scent quite relaxing. I used this on Angel just as I’d used the body lotion, concentrating on his dry elbows, knees and back. It didn’t seem to help him get to sleep any earlier but after the second night I noticed something amazing- my four year old son was sleeping through the night. I’d had two consecutive nights of peaceful, restful sleep.

Angel has my tendency to sleep lightly and fitfully. We have dogs that bark at a sweet zephyr and cats that, you know, might walk through the house. We just don’t sleep well. Add my not sleeping well to my also being his go to source of comfort when he wakes up and by midway through the night he’s climbing on me and I am dealing with both my wakefulness and his, doubling my sleep disturbances.

I added the body cream to my own nighttime routine and have still more restful nights.

In late December I loaded up on the Aromatherapy line. We’ve enjoyed the bath foam as well and have added Energy to our collection. I keep a bottle of each Energy and Stress Relief on my desk for daily use.

I love them. The only disappointment in the bunch has been Sensual, which I found so averse I can’t imagine it making me feel sensual!

Many of the products are on sale today for $5. At a retail of $12 and $13 that’s a steal!

About EchoStenger.com

EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.

It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.

Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.

I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.

I. Love. Air conditioning.

Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.
