Good strong lavender aroma, lasts about 10 minutes in the shower, and makes me feel like I've spent a relaxing time at the spa. No it can't replace a massage or the change of scenery, but occasionally this is a really nice indulgence.
These are essentially big Alka Seltzer tablets with essential oils, and without the aspirin. The lavendar is nice and strong. Breathe deeply and inhale the lavendar smell.
The tablet goes in the floor of the shower. In a normal sized shower, about three foot by three foot, the aroma fills the shower nicely and works for a good 10 minutes. In a bathtub shower, this would be a lot less noticeable and less effective. It's a good idea to turn off the bathroom fan if possible. Placing these tablets near the drain is also not a great idea; water flowing down the drain will pull the aroma down the drain.
Placing the tablet in direct line of the water will release a lot of aroma quickly, and shorten the aromatherapy time. Kicking it to the corner will release aroma more slowly.
These dissolve completely in water and leave no residue behind.
The bottom of the box says not for use in the bathtub. Aura Cacia has other products for the tub. Well, I actually do enjoy this in the tub. The light bubbling action is pleasant and the aroma is wonderful in a bath. Unlike bath salts, the aroma is generated over more time and I like that.
At about a dollar a shower, this is a nice indulgence.
