Enjoying unscented bath products to fit my sensitive smell needs with Aromafloria

I am highly sensitive to scent! Because of this, I am particular about bath products I use.  Fake over scented products make me sick!  I previously reviewed Aromafloria’s Muscle Soak. I love their products!  The bath products were subtle and soothed my muscles.

I keep the inhalation beads in my purse and recommend them for times when the environment is filled with trigger smells.  The inhalation beads are a quick smell for relief.

Recently I have become more interested in essential oils and mixing my own products.  Some days I enjoy a scent, other days I benefit from another oil and some days I want NO SMELL.  When I received unscented products from their mixology line I used them in a variety of ways. Simply,

  1. “Select your preferred base product.
  2. Add your preferred essential-oil blend.
  3. Mix, smell and enjoy.”

The unscented line provides so many options for so many needs.  I keep the bath & shower oil in my shower. It deeply penetrates and hydrates before I step out of the shower.   I love the salt scrub with oils to provide a spa like feeling.  The massage oil works great for my aching muscles and is perfect mixed with relaxing and healing oils.  The body butter is luscious and smooth.  I use it completely unscented and love the hydration it provides without smelly trigger perfumes.

The ability to alter these products with oils and to use scentless is such a luxury! If you or a loved one is sensitive to smell, I highly recommend these products!

Here’s the exciting news…..

Aromafloria is giving away an amazing prize pack just for My Migraine Life followers!
