Forget the massage, there's a new, squeaky-clean way to get your aromatherapy fix
"AROMATHOLOGY" is the latest range of shower gels, bath oils, body lotions and what-nots from Crabtree & Evelyn. As the name suggests, it's been developed with help from aromatherapists so the products are packed with essential oils. The Romance lip balm, pounds 3.95, contains tangerine cardamom which sweetens your breath and tastes delicious (though you should never be licking neat essential oils - very bad). All the products smell lovely (especially the candles which last ages), but the best bit is the packaging. All the bottles are dark brown or green and look very pharmaceutical and old-fashioned, but the shower gel bottle is actually plastic so it doesn't smash in the bath. There's even a bottle of smelling salts, pounds 7.50, in case you come over all peculiar.
