Some people need an alarm clock, others a gentle kiss on the cheek, or perhaps the sound of a cockerel to spring them out of bed. For me theres just one thing that wakes me up in the morning: Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath and Shower Oil, £34.75.
Its a zingy aromatherapy oil blend with pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper that energises and wakes up my sleepy senses. Usually I just slather the oil over my neck and chest in the shower so the hot water and steam heats up the oil and the scent rises up as I breathe it in. But my new technique is putting a few drops in the bottom of the shower so that the entire room fills with the gorgeous natural fragrance. The best part is, they even do a Revive Evening, £34.75 with a more sensual blend of Patchouli and Geranium, just what you want to have a soak in when youre feeling a little weary before a night out on the tiles. In fact I might just have to run myself a bath before I head out tonight.
