Luxury Bath Time | Neom Organics




When it comes to ultimate relaxation, there are 3 vital things I require. The first being a bath. As most of you are aware, I am an anxious person at the best of times (or worst shall we say) so I have to find time to just chill out & switch off. The best place for me to do that, is in a deep, hot bubble bath with a good magazine. This then brings me onto the second requirement, something calming and relaxing to bathe in. I'm definitely more of a bubbles girl, as they cover your dignity & lets be honest, they are a hoot (don't pretend the child within you doesn't enjoy a mound of bubbles) but when it comes to having a slightly less fun, more mature bath however, a good bath oil will be my weapon of choice. The oil I have mostly been reaching for over the last few months is the "Neom Luxury Organics Refresh Bath Oil"* Not only does this smell absolutely amazing, it also soothes & moisturises my skin. I don't even find myself reaching for the moisturiser post bath, as the oil does a good enough job on its own. The main scents of this bath oil are sicilian lemon and fresh basil, designed to give you an instant refresh, and to awaken your mood. Although quite pricey (£32 a bottle), a little goes a very long way. As it's an oil, you only need to add two capfuls each bath time. I'm already nosey-ing up which one to buy next. If you like the idea of trying out a bath oil but don't want to spend £32 on one bottle, they do a little set of mini's which include all 5 of their scents for only £16, which would be a great way of trying before buying, and seeing which you like best. 

The third thing in my ultimate relaxation requirements list, is a candle. Not just any candle though, one that I know will smell amazing, burn well & lift my mood. When I first received this candle, I thought "how could a candle possibly be worth £39.50" but I cannot stress to you enough, how utterly amazing this candle is. Firstly, i'll point out that it's a massive 380g worth of candle (1kg if you count the glass) and burns for up to 55 hours. They are made using vegetable wax and pure essential oils, rather than synthetic scents so they burn without releasing any nastiness or soot. They actually work as holistic treatments as you breathe them in, to help soothe your mind and de-stress you. The candle I have is the Neom Happiness Candle* and do you know what, it really does make me happy. It contains white neroli, mimosa and lemon. I am actually a bit scared to light this too often as I just love it so much I never want it to end. Of all the candles I have ever used (and I am quite the candle junky), this is by far my favourite. The scent doesn't disappear, it burns well (no unburnt, hard wax up the side of the glass) & it's just the perfect companion for bath time, or bedroom chillaxing time. Again, i'm eyeing up which one to go for next. 

What are you luxury bath time essentials?

  1. I love to relax while having a bath, and just not think about anything else. I would love to try out this bath oil, the price is a bit high, but it would be worth it. x

  2. One thing I hate about living in university halls is I don't have a bath! But radox bubbles (preferably a lavender scent) are a definite must for me, I don't really like the idea of having oil in water. And that candle looks gorgeous, do they have smaller ones? xx

  4. Baths are my ulitmate way of relaxing. I am high strung person and without them I don't know what I would do. I usually use sea salts in my bath but I think I would really love bath oil, since I have really dry skin. The only other thing that I add to my "zen time", other than a book or mag and candles, is classical music playing really low.

  5. These sounds lovely and I am such a bath lover! Love the layered effect of the candle :) I'm always slightly hesitant with bath oils though as they are often a bit too much and irritate my skin, are these quite gentle? xx

  6. should've said the price before saying hw amazing it is, then i wouldnt hav bothered reading cos i can in no way afford to spend that on a bath oil!

  7. I just have a shower in my house and I miss bathing so much! Candles are always a must for me too, I have them on when I'm revising and in the evening when I'm watching TV - fab! x

  9. Hmmm. Baths help with your anxiety? I don't know why I didn't think of that *stupid*... I need to bath more!

  11. I'm more of a shower girl myself but I keep meaning to purchase some Neom treats. I love your new layout by the way. Very fresh and pretty xx

  12. Wowza! £39.50 for a candle- I would've thought exactly what you thought! I love bath products, especially the ones that help to relieve stress so I must try this- seeing as you've recommended it. I hate the hard wax on the sides of the glass too and I end up making a mess of things when I try to melt it/scrape it down, haha xx :)

  13. These look the epitome of luxuriousness! I need to try Neom :)

  14. as a sufferer of panic attacks myself I've been desperately trying to find a way of relaxing and unwinding and I keep hearing about neom! They sound like such a luxury though and I don't think I could spend 40 quid on a candle...think of all the primark loot you could get fer that!? hmm on the other hand if it works...? Aaaah decisions!

  15. Those products both look absolutely lovely! Unfortunately though, I only enjoy baths in the wintertime for some reason so the oil wouldn't do much good for me right now. I am checking out those candles right now, although they have to be pretty convincing to make me sway from my Bath & Body Works candles! xo

  17. theres nothing I love more than a good old bath - when pay day rolls around my bank account may hate me as I think from reading this i may be making a sneaky purchase! xx

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love a good relaxing bath and like you I usually prefer bubbles but oils can feel so luxurious. I'm a big fan of the busy bee candles which are a amazing and a lot cheaper so I don't think I'd fork out that price for the candle but for the bath oil- absolutely! The scent sounds amazing and really unique! xx

  20. I've heard quite a few things about Neom now - all wonderful! I may just have to give one of those candles a try..it's one of those things, first glimpse and its, 'oh no the moneyyy!' but if something does the job then surely it is worth it?! :) so glad you're blogging regularly again Zoe :D x

  21. Sounds so relaxing! I enjoy a good bath as well, to really unwind from the day. I just recently became obsessed with finding good luxury bath products! I would love to try this out, but I live in the US, so I can imagine shipping would be quite pricey! Great review however!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have to say I adore a nice long bath its my ultimate indulgence after a long day in the office. I am not one to acquire a candle whilst bathing but am guilty of the odd glass of Pinot decorating the side of the bath :-). The bath oil sounds gorgeous for a more grown up bath which I am lacking in favour of bath bombs and bubbles.

  29. I have never thought to take a bath to try and relax a bit. In fact, I think the last time I had a nice relaxing bath was in Vegas 5 years because I had a giant jacuzzi tub in my hotel room! I need to get some nice bath oil/bubble bath stuff! I totally agree about the bubbles, gotta have a little bit of fun!

  30. both sounds so great, especially the candle *_* I'm a big fan of
    yankee candles so this would be great to, I think. :D

  44. You can't beat organic candles, they smell like something that might actually exist in real life rather than vanilla with a lovely subtle hint of chemical.

  52. Sounds lovely!! I can almost smell the wonderfulness through the computer screen. :-) I personally love the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt in my bath. It is an oil that smells wonderful and leaves the skin feeling smooth. It is also multipurpose as it claims that it can be used as a hair mask. :-)

  56. Ah the Neom bath oil sounds so nice, though I must admit to being a fan of bubbles in my bath. The candle sounds amzing anything that calms nerves or anxiety is a plus in my mind, might have to have a look on the site. I definitely think candles are a must for a relaxing bath. x

  57. I must say I am so happy I came across you and Louise. You remind me of myself, and she reminds me of my friend who actually lives in the UK right now. She used to live here in the United States and I never see her anymore. She lived near Mere when we went and visited. Anyway, we use to laugh so hard just like you two.So right away I felt somehow like I knew both of you? Weird to say but I feel like there are so many quirky personalities in the world, and your "quirkiness" makes sense with my idea of so-called quirkiness. I love the photos you have and the photos you take. It inspires me to blog more, myself. There's something so cleansing about blogging. Keep up the great work!

  58. This sounds amazing, i absolutely love candle and bath oils, but im not much of a person to have baths, but having a candle light while sitting in bed reading a book or on the computer, is just enough to relax me, and having a candle lit also has the room smelling nice, then still lingers after a day or so.

  74. The combination of the bath oil and the candle sound amazing!

    If I'm after an ultimate girlie bath experience, I go for a combination of the new Imperial Leathers Limited Edition bath foams (because they smell absolutely amazing!). I also need my music on...I can completely relate to the feeling of anxiety!

    Bubble baths are my way of forgetting the world for an hour or so. I love them!
