Bodhi and Birch Siam Ginger Bath and Shower Therapy

Hello everyone,

Bodhi and Birch is a fantastic company with a wonderful ethos and approach to their Eco Luxe products and they just for me get better and better!

Elijah Choo draws his inspiration from the healing power of nature, traditional botanical remedies bringing together Eastern and Western skincare and wellbeing philosophies. Each ingredient is ethically sourced from sustainable origins.

My Siam ginger is a wonderfully invigorating, joint warming, aromatic shower gel, it’s not sugar coated ginger its pure kickass ginger which the chef in me really loves  and need to help warm and the senses and ease a sore, tired body!

Made with the Galangal root (gingery), sharp Cardamon Pod and Kaffir Lime Leaf, Turmeric and Lactic Acid   this shower gel is all i hoped it would be, really invigorating, warming, uplifting and my skin never fails to feel fantastic after really clean and fresh, it is free from phthalates, parabens, sulfates, synthetic colours or fragrances so its very non drying on your skin too, it is just 100% pure luxe and indulgence for the body and mind, beautiful product.

The fresh scent and spice not only lingers in my bathroom after (the sign of a good pure scent) but lightly on my skin, i just love that warming gingery kick so much!

I also bought a Bamboo Cotton Flannel, as you can see from the picture it is a decent sized flannel, it really massages your skin in the shower, exfoliating  and cleansing as it goes, i have found it also soaps up really well with the Siam Ginger shower gel, really helps get circulation going bringing blood and oxygen to the surface for the skin, improving texture and clarity. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial  too. I really love this cloth in the shower to get me really clean and fresh after, i will be repurchasing this cloth for sure its sooo good!

Last but not least Bodhi and Birch have now branched out into skincare and i was lucky enough to get a couple of samples of their Rosa Rosa Clarifying Cleanser and The Rosa Rosa daily moisturiser and WOW a beautiful sensory experience for the senses as well as the skin, they smell so completely fresh and light.

Infused with vitamin enriched Rosehip oil, Damask Rose, Orange Blossom and Camomile, the scent is divine and once you inhale your whole body just sigh’s out the day! The cleanser lightly foams when mixed with water and the day cream is so light but thoroughly hydrating giving a beautiful luster to my skin … not to save up for some :-), a completely indulgent, luxurious pair of products ❤

If you have not tried Bodhi and Birch before and want lovely clean, fresh, healthy skin without the parabens and sulfates then i cannot recommend this brand highly enough, it is in many ways considered purchases but boy does it deliver on what they say the product is and what it will do for you … sure aren’t we worth it after all?

Jo Malone Amber & Lavender Bath Oil

Hello fellow beauty lovers ,

I had a massively stressful week last week with the flat beside me being ripped apart and put back together again in a totally new format, walls knocked down, new walls put in, the sheer non stop drilling and racket on 2 sides of me had my teeth rattling it was so bad!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So thank heavens i had this Jo Malone Amber & lavender bath oil for my bath to have lovely relaxing soak in because i really needed it!

It smells amazing with top notes of Petitgrain giving a freshness and a hint of sharp orange, heart note of rich luxurious spicy Lavender which i truly love and adore, finished off with lovely heady warming Amber for a truly heavenly bathing experience.

Being oils i wasn’t expecting any foam but there was a little and once the oil hit the running water and steam whole bathroom transformed into haven of fragrant tranquillity.

This is a masculine scent but to me its very unisex  for bathing, can be used by men or women, for that relaxing bathing experience and after a 20 minute soak in this normality had resumed to my wee flat, the stress was gone, the aches and pains were gone too and i felt so much more relaxed!

The almond, Jojoba seed and Avocado oils left my skin well hydrated and it was lightly scented too with all the wonderful ingredients!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would love this scent for all over my bed linen, it would be so amazing to get into bed and this relaxing exquisite fragrance wafting all around you as you got into bed .. heaven!

Have you tried Jo Malone Yet? I have tried a few of her fragrances now and they are always in a league of their own, very beautiful with a price tag to match but oh so worth it …
