For the best part of a year I've been struggling to sleep. Previously my head would hit the pillow and I was gone but now this happens only a few nights out of the month. Since then I have tried numerous products to help me calm down and get ready to float away on a fluffy cloud including the Origins Calm To Your Senses Lavender & Vanilla Oil For Bath and Body.
I'd describe the fragrance as a balanced amount of lavender and vanilla, maybe a fraction more lavender. Put it this way, it's not a strong lavender scent like pure lavender oil. I say this as I know a lot of people don't enjoy lavender because it can get a little overpowering. Also it has the association of the older folk lining their chest of drawers with pouches of the stuff to make their clothes smell nice.
When using the Origins Calm To Your Senses Lavender & Vanilla Oil For Bath and Body in the bath it fills the room with the calming scent and as we all know the bath itself helps you relax, ready for bed. On evenings that I haven't got time to run a bath I will apply some directly to my chest area and arms for the aroma to be around me as I climb into bed but also it leaves my skin moisturised as it contains skin-nourishing Soybean Oil, Olive Oil and Jojoba Oil to silken, soothe, soften and smooth.
Some may find the scent quite strong, I think this is more of a personal opinion so it might be worth visiting a store first if you're unsure.
The bottom line is... this oil definitely helps relax me before bed. I think it would be a great gift for someone who struggles to sleep too. At £23 it's not the cheapest bath oil but you only use one or two capfuls per bath so I can foresee that I will have this bottle for a long time.
