If first impressions are everything then Rituals Gift of Relaxation had me at hello....
We actually need to stop and take a minute to talk about the box and packaging before I can even get into the product. The ribbon is headband like and the bronze pendant is heavy and quality. The box feels like a canvas fabric with the gold inflated design. It is a beautiful and sturdy box that I WILL be reusing.
One of my favoirite features was actually the packaging..
So why do I have to stop and make a note out the packaging?
I love this so much! We live in the country and have to drive our trash into town. Between having a 3 year old and driving our trash in I have become very aware of how much packaging we receive. Seeing this made me so happy and appreciative.
Now let's get into the products. The set I recieved was The Ritual of Ayurveda - The ancient art of living wisely. The set is beautiful, smells great and screams class. The scent is strong on these but they are natural scents. I am normally very sensitive to smells and these do not bother me.
First up the foaming body wash. The scent is Indian rose and sweet almond. This one actually takes me back. My mother owns a herb and oil shop that I grew up working at. We used sweet almond oil often when making custom fragrant mixes. So every time I smell this it takes me back. The good thing is I can tell from the smell they are using the oils they claim to be using. This won't be one of those times that you think your getting one smell only to find out you got an artificial knock off.
What's even more important is it actually made me stop and take a minute for myself. I am normally in such a rush in the mornings but I was enjoying the smell so much that I actually slowed down for a minute and enjoyed my shower.
The sweet almond oil and Indian rose pink salt scrub is nice. It melts in before I can exfoliate to the extent I would like but it leaves a very smooth feeling. I was shocked at the smoothness left behind.
The lotion instantly became my purse/car lotion. I love the natural smells, this one is Indian rose and himalaya honey. What I love is this is a strong and natural smell and there are times that is what I need. I would highly recommend this to smokers and people who work in jobs where their hands get pungent odors on them. I like to keep a strong smelling lotion in my car just in case. Life happens and you can't always smell your freshest but this lotion has your back.
Oh, the hand soap. This one is for mamma's bathroom. It smells amazing with the Indian rose and sweet almost oil. The bottle is beautiful and would look lovely on any counter. I call this mommy's soap.
This would be an amazing set to gift anyone.
I highly recommend this 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟as a host gift, teachers gift, new mom, coworker or a white elephant gift. Anyone who needs to stop and take a minute for themselves would appreciate this🎄🎁

As you can see the box is simple, beautiful and elegant.
Pictured here is the softening rice scrub 2.3 oz It feels like a medium exfoliator to me. No large chunks of exfoliant it is very coarse and plentiful. Feels like the perfect day to day exfoliant.
Pictured here is the blossoming hand wash 3.7 oz a beautiful addition to any bathroom. Though I do like to hide it in my personal bathroom becuase it smells so good.
Here is the magic touch body cream 2.3 oz The fragrance is plenitiful but pleasant and not overbearing. The creme is thick but absorbs well.
The Zensational foaming shower gel 1.6 oz
