Espa Bath Oil Set
I wasn't sure what to buy with my Espa gift card at first but after a quick browse of the site I knew I wanted to try their bath oils. I've heard so much about the aromatherapy associates bath oils I thought these would be a good chance to try something similar.
The gift set contains six bath oils to suit whatever mood you are in that day. Even though there isn't a scent I don't like, my two favourites are Restorative and Soothing. I think it's the lavender and almond oil in both that really appeal to me as well as the other ingredients. From the 15ml bottles I've managed to get about 5 or 6 baths out of each. Despite the £27 price tag I think it works out as quite a good offer. It would also make a lovely gift for someone as well as yourself.
Detoxifying - A beautifully uplifting bath oil thats formulated to boost the circulatory system, detoxify the body and nourish the skin. Purifying Cypress and Juniper Berry renowned to stimulate the lymphatic system help sweep away toxins. Grapefruit lifts the spirits, while Sweet Almond Oil deeply nourishes for beautifully soft, supple skin.

Simply pour a small amount into running water, light a few candles, grab a good book and relax. It makes a perfect Sunday pamper night. You could even apply a face and hair mask to go that bit further.
With Espa orders you can also choose some really great samples so I went with a few that I didn't want to order the full sizes without actually trying them first.
