Yogandha Muscle Soothe

For someone who does very little in the way of exercise, I all too often have very sore muscles. I've tried just about everything - from deep heat, to massages, to Epsom salts and nothing has made all that much different and so when Yogandha offered me their Muscle Soothe oil I jumped at the chance. After all, it's not only those that can pull off the warrior position for the best part that needs to ease some tight muscles (I can barely hold the warrior pose for ten seconds, but still - if it might help with my sore muscles I'm more than happy to give it a go.)

This is an oil with a base of 7 essential oils all targeted to be used post-workout; the ginger is there to help soothe muscles whilst the marjoram boosts circulation and eases tension. As aforementioned, I'm not really big on any kind of physical exercise, however I have been using it rubbed onto sore, tense muscles and they really do feel a little better afterwards, although that could just be the act of massaging it in. It does smell nice and warm, like it should be some sort of Autumn/Winter latte flavour, which is a bonus because although Deep Heat works we all know it smells like something that realistically you should buy in B&Q.

Extra bonus for this though? Throw it in your bath, fill said bath with hot water and breathe in and relax. The ginger opens up your sinuses, the hot water and the oil help to soothe sore muscles and extra added bonus would be the fact that if you shave in water that's filled with oil you'll never feel skin softer than when you're finished. Seriously though. This isn't cheap - it's going to set you back €29.95, more expensive than my previous favourite which was the MOA Fortifying Green Bath Potion, however this bottle of oil definitely lasted longer than the MOA offering, I'm over a month into this bottle and I've still got more than dregs left.

All in all - this definitely has taken my top spot of my favourite bath oil of the minute (and you know that's a title that I take very, very seriously) and I'm really looking forward to buying myself the Detox oil when this one runs out; it's almost enough to make me want to take up yoga! I have a few small bottles of various Yogandha samples floating around and so I'm sure they'll make their way into posts soon, be sure to keep an eye out!

All in all, this might not look anything special in it's basic green plastic packaging, but as they say it's what's inside that counts, and Yogandha is blowing other bath and body oils out of the water for me, right now.
