Muscle Tension and Migraine

Aromafloria delivers finely crafted, artisanal quality body care and aromatherapy products. Aromafloria approached me to review their Muscle Soak collection. This collection restores vitality with eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass essential oils. These nourishing formulas soothe sore muscles, ease tension and leave you feeling energized. Knowing that I like eucalyptus and peppermint already, I knew this was the line for me.

This summer, I have decided to cut down on my workouts and focus more on relaxation and taking care of my skin. These products allowed me to do so. Here is a breakdown of all the products I tried:


Muscle Soak- Ocean Mineral Bath Salts

Restore a sense of well-being to ease sore muscles with an aromatic steaming bath infused with healing essential oils and muscle-relaxing sea salts.

The bath salts were a real treat to me. I never take the time to take a bath and reviewing these forced me to relax. So, I found that the salts dissolved easily and had a light, pleasant aroma. I have used overpowering products in the bath before, and this one is subtle and not too strong to soak in for a long bath.

Muscle Soak- Foaming Bubble Bath

The Muscle Soak Bubble Bath’s essential oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Lemongrass are fresh cooling, and refreshing.

My children helped me review the bubble bath. They love bubble baths and were thrilled with the lush, foamy, pleasant smell. I felt good about allowing them to use the eucalyptus bubble bath when my son has sensitive skin and sinus issues. His skin was soothed, and his breathing was clear after soaking and playing in the bubble bath.

Muscle Soak- Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub

Cleanse away fatigue and invigorate the body and soul with refreshing fantastic herbs and aromas to leave your skin a softly polished and younger feeling.

This was my favorite! I love scrubs, and this one was great! Once again, it was a lovely light aroma. I enjoyed the fine scrub and how it was not messy. It stuck to my skin and allowed me to exfoliate without splashing it all over the shower or chunking up and falling to the drain.

Moreover, It left my skin smooth and slightly moisturized and not dry. It is so gentle I use it daily and concentrate on areas of bumps or imperfections on my skin. The only problem is how quickly I have been using it!

Muscle Soak- Bath & Body Massage Oil

Relieve tired muscles from aches and pains with an icy hot massage with Muscle Soak Bath & Body Massage Oil.

This one I used this one on my husband. He is at a desk job all day and gets a lot of back and shoulder pain. I treated him with body oil and a massage, and he now requests it often.

Sinus Help- Inhalation Beads

The decongestant and cooling properties of essential oils have been shown to help clear stuffy noses and enhance breathing.

These came in very handy! After receiving all of the Aromafloria products, I went into a migraine cycle followed by a sinus infection and pink eye. The pressure on my face was extreme. I helped treat myself with baths (salts) and breathing the inhalation beads. The sinus beads are pretty strong. The first time I breathed deeply with them, my eyes watered from the essential oils. I brought the beads with me when we were outside to help clear my sinuses and allow me to have some relief as the allergies grew.

Sleep Ease- Inhalation Beads

The therapeutic properties of essential oils have been known to help quiet the mind and calm the body for healthy, natural sleep.

These beads are not as strong as the sinus beads. They are pleasant and relaxing. I plan on adding these to my travel bag. The smells of airplanes and the people surrounding me often trigger migraines. I also will use them before bed in the dry air-conditioned hotel. They are relaxing and help calm my migraine brain before bed.



Overall, I loved trying all of the Aromafloria products.  Being under the weather and pampering myself with these soothing products allowed me to feel more energized and vibrant.  As a busy mom, quality bath products are like an escape to the spa in the comforts of my home.

    Those products ALL sound absolutely heavenly and I love that they’re more of a natural alternative treatment than taking pain medications, or at the very least they’re a nice combination to help. I love pampering myself when I don’t feel good so these sound like the perfect treat!
