Move over bubble bath – these tablets turn showers into spas!
It seems like all of the fun bath products of the world are made for those who actually enjoy taking baths as opposed to showers. Since I’m a devoted shower girl, things like bath bombs, oils and bubbles and the like are lost on me. Well, today I’m here to tell you that finally, there’s a fun product for us gals who prefer the stream of the shower over the steam of the bath.
Smith & Vandiver Aromatherapaes Spa Shower Tablets are designed specifically to be used in the shower. Unlike similar products that are designed to help relieve congestion and contain ingredients like menthol, Aromatherapaes Spa Shower Tablets are packed with soothing ingredients like chamomile and neroli to give you a true spa experience at home. There’s no medicinal quality to these tablets—they are a pure spa-like indulgence!
For around $5 you receive five individually-wrapped tablets. The Spa Tablets have been recently redesigned and are available in two scents. I received the De-Stress with Chamomile & Neroli for review, while other wht review team members received the Orange, Geranium and Peppermint Energize. Since I have used Smith & Vandiver products in the past, I can tell you that S&V really do chamomile RIGHT. The chamomile essential oil they use in their products truly makes you feel like you’re standing in a field of chamomile flowers. It’s amazing.
To use these little tablets, simply open up a package and place the tablet on the floor of your shower, away from the direct stream of water from your showerhead (you don’t want the tablet to dissolve prematurely). Then, just go about your business and allow the tablet to work its magic. Almost instantaneously, you’ll be able to smell the wonderful, soothing aroma of essential oils. All that’s left to do is breathe deeply and relax.
These tablets are multi-functional, as you can also toss one into a sink filled with warm water for a spa-like experience outside of the shower, or you can put one on your nightstand to emit a soft, relaxing fragrance as you sleep.
Aromatherapaes Spa Shower Tablets are certified 100% natural, and my Neroli & Chamomile tablets contain sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, maltodextrin, chamomile essential oil and neroli essential oil. That’s it!
• Provides an at-home spa experience for about $1 per shower
