Stress-free Stress Relief

Life is stressful.  In this review, I will share with you an easy and inexpensive way of obtaining some much needed stress-relief. Have your Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Aromatherapy lotion delivered to your door and feel the stress melt away. Relaxation may not be as elusive as you might think.

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Review 


Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relief
I received a bottle of Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Aromatherapy lotion as a gift. Initially, I was a bit tentative about the gift. Fragrances are difficult gifts to give because not everyone likes the same fragrance. In addition to that, as someone who has migraines that are sometimes triggered by fragrances, I am cautious with new scents. However, with the first use of this aromatherapy lotion, all of my reservations disappeared.

The Eucalyptus Spearmint scent combination is aromatic. It is not a subdued scent. For stress relief, the website instructs to smooth the lotion on generously and breathe deeply. This is how I apply the lotion, before bed or after a bath.  I am not sure how much stress is alleviated from the use of this lotion, but the moisturizing and the scent are pleasing. I do feel more relaxed after applying it.

The reasons I like this particular lotion:

  • essential oils provide a genuine, natural scent
  • lightly moisturizing
  • lotion absorbs well and doesn't feel greasy
  • packaged in a nice glass bottle with a pump dispenser
  • some reviewers report that it opens the sinuses (I agree)
  • some reviewers report that it soothes sore muscle or joint pain (I agree)
  • is a great lotion for massage

 

Easy Bath & Body Works Online Ordering 


We have a wonderful, local, brick and mortar Bath & Body Works store. It's a great little store. However, I don't always enjoy fighting the crowds for a bottle of lotion.  I began using the Bath & Body Works Website to buy my lotions and to order gifts.  I love saving my time and money by shopping online and having my purchases delivered to my door. I explain how I saved 50% on my current order on Treasures, Travel, and Tales.


Orange Ginger Energy

Bath & Body Works Orange Ginger Energy Body Lotion


There is another Bath & Body Works aromatherapy body lotion that I received as a gift and highly recommend.  If you are concerned that the eucalyptus spearmint lotion may be too strong, you will definitely want to try the Orange Ginger Energy Body lotion.  Personally, I love them both equally, but for different reasons.  

The Orange Ginger aromatherapy body lotion is also packaged in the glass bottle with the pump dispenser.  The aroma also is from essential oils but is a softer fragrance.  Again, while I can't quantify how much more energized I feel after using this lotion, I am sure that I feel good after using it and I love the scent.

Bits of Relaxation


Any bit of relaxation and self-care that we can bring into our lives is pretty important to our health and well-being. Pampering ourselves is one way to do that.  These are just two of my favorite items.

  1. I am immediately encouraged to hear that the fragrance doesn't trigger a migraine!!! I won't even try scented "anything" for that very reason. Now that I know that my fellow migraine sufferer recommends this lotion, perhaps I too can get a bit of relief from the stress, even if I am only limited to feeling more relaxed :) I could especially use the joint pain relief right now. Yes, I would say this may be exactly what I need.

    1. Many, many scents/chemicals/fragrances trigger my migraines. But essential oils often don't (learned that from one of my massage/whole-living friends years ago) in fact, some essential oils provide some relief. This scent is strong, but I like it and intentionally breath it in deeply.

  2. Your review makes these Bath & Body Works fragrances sound wonderful. I know that Spearmint is a very soothing essential oil as my Tai Chi instructor has a bottle of this (and also peppermint and a few others) at the sign-in desk and has us put a few drops on our wrists before each class to make us feel calm for the movements. My brother attends the class with me and even he likes it, so it isn't just for women.

    1. I LOVE peppermint essential oil. I like that your Tai Chi instructor provides this at the beginning of class. I never thought of trying the oils when I do my Yoga. Great idea. Thanks for sharing that information.

  3. It is wonderful news that these fragrances and oils have not triggered your migraines! I have been a firm believer in essential oils for years, using only pure therapeutic grade oils and even use them on my dogs for various reasons over the years.

    1. Oh yes, I remember that you said you use essential oils on the dogs. I had forgotten. My hula-hooping friend back home had many, many essential oils. I was afraid to try too many, but I loved the ones she convinced me to try.

  4. I would love to try the Eucalyptus Spearmint! It sounds like something I would love (the aroma) and I'll bet my family would enjoy this as well - Eucalyptus has such a fresh clean smell and added with Spearmint it must be really great - you've peaked my interest on this one!
