WHAT IS IT?
A rosemary bath additive by Dr Hauschka.
A 150ml plastic bottle with a white and gold label and sturdy white plastic lid. I do not like the Dr Hauschka bottles because I think they are very basic looking for the price and I would prefer something more feminine.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
Pour a small amount of the oil into a warm bath and soak in the water for as long as you need to, try to breathe deeply to inhale the rosemary steam.
WHAT I THINK
There are five in this range of bath additives from Dr Hauschka and I think this rosemary one isn't as effective or nice smelling as the others. It is supposed to refresh and rejuvenate but I don't feel any different when I've bathed using the Rosemary Bath. It smells nice with a rich herbal fragrance and the rosemary smell is rich and full in the air, I like the fragrance but I think a lot of people won't because it isn't very pretty or feminine. It's strong in the air and my husband doesn't like me using in when he is in because he dislikes the smell.
The Rosemary Bath doesn't make my skin soft because you only use a very small amount in your bath and Dr Hauschka tell you not to add anything else to the water. The rosemary fragrance stays on my skin for longer than I'd like it to and interferes with my perfume if I apply my perfume too quickly after my bath.
A 150ml bottle of Rosemary Bath costs £14 and lasts a lot longer than you think because you only need to use a very small amount.

Purchased in Berlin while on holiday this was on sale and only cost 12 euro which isa pretty good saving as in the UK I have seen it retail for £20, while in Berlin I starting to develop some flu like symptoms over the last couple of days and while I used some typical pharmaceutical products to fight off the fever and stuff I also made use of this to provide a little bit of extra relief for the aches that my body was sufferring from, by the time I got home the flu was in full flight and I needed something much stronger. It comes in a relatively simple, functional 150ml bottle.
When you add this oil to a hot bath it has a stimulating and heating effect on your body which helps you to relax and it then helps to calm and muscle tension you might have, I have used it before when I have had a bit of back pain or when work has been very physical and I needed to relax after a big set of shows. It has a herbal smell to it which is the rosemary and it can be quite over powering so you only want to add a small amount at a time to ensure you do not end up over loading your senses. It gives the water a smooth oily feel to it which is quite relaxing in itself and not at all icky feeling.
It is certainly very effective at relaxing tired muscles, you can feel a nice warm glow working its way through your skin and muscles however it is not an intense heat like a deep heat product rather a soothing warm feeling that really does help and benefit you. Certainly when I was not feeling very well it provided a bit of a pick me up and also when i have suffered from tired limbs in the past it has helped.
It leaves my skin feeling quite smooth with a healthy glow, I'm not quite so keen on the smell however it does not really permeate my skin too much and once I have used soap and washed this off there is no smell at all.
It is worth having this in the toiletries cupboard, it is not something I use on a daily or even weekly basis but I do make use of it every so often.
Who would of thought there was an oil that could actually warm you up? This Rosemary Bath oil retails at just under £18 for a 150ml bottle which I think is fine because it's a product that to some people is essential and yet you don't need to use it all the time so it keeps and lasts a long time. I luckily never paid for this myself. I have quite a lot of Dr. Hauschka products but have only recently got around to using them because people buy me so many beauty and bath products it takes me a year or so to get around to using them.
The purpose of this product is that you put a few drops of this into your bath, basin or in a foot spa type thing and this will help to warm you up, help to focus the mind and invigorates the body.As strange as it seems (that's what I thought) this actually works. I used this not long ago, I worked in a factory without the proper attire and in doing so I caught a terrible fever and was bed ridden for over 2 weeks and of course a fever your terribly hot but you feel freezing so having a bath I was always forced to have a lukewarm one which made me feel colder so when my mum was preparing my bath (too ill to do it myself) she put a bit of this in it.
As soon as I slipped into the bathroom I could smell hints of rosemary,I say hints because at the time I couldn't smell anything! So this must of had a really strong aroma to it and I can't comment more about it because I used the full bottle in this time! Getting into the bath I could feel the oily water brushing against my skin and although it sounds icky is was really nice and felt more luxurious than greasy. I did notice this didn't mix too well in the water though I could sort of see where the oils were in the bath but that might be due to the temperature of the bath water, usually I have it boiling but for obvious reasons I couldn't have it that hot.
This was really soothing and within 5 minutes of being in the bath I muscles relaxed and the rain eased off dramatically so much so that I fell asleep at that time for the first time in several days because I was that ill. When I finally awoke I felt alert,awake and very refreshed even though I had only slept for around 15 minutes. The rosemary bath oil help to warm up and soothe my muscles which helped my shivers and desperate need to bury myself in all mine and my boyfriends clothes and div into bed with a million blankets.
The effects soon wore off, within the hour I was back aching and cold again but this is due to me having a high fever and not because of the product, although I haven't bought or used this product since I found this extremely helpful and helped me with a lot of pain relief so I strongly recommend this to anyone who is suffering from something similar.
My other half has few products in the Dr Hauschka range and although I am under strict instructions not to use them as they are so expensive, this does not stop me occasionally having a little try to see what all the fuss is about. She has had various bath oils and creams over the years, but she often waits until one is completely gone before she buys another. I don't think I have seen her with more than two bath products at once.
The latest one she tried was the Rosemary Bath which is in one of those plain little glass bottles that they all seem to come in. I always think that for such an expensive range, they certainly didn't splash out of the packaging very much as it always looks a little bit disappointing. The bottle was originally housed in a plain cardboard box but that got thrown away. The bottle contains 150mls of bath oil and it is a light golden yellow in colour which you can actually see through the clear glass of the bottle.
The first time I tried this was after a particularly bad day at work. I usually use the Radox, but it was a Friday night and I was feeling a bit down and I decoded to add this to my bath as a treat, making sure I had locked the bathroom door behind me first of course, just in case the smell gave me away. I have to be quite careful of what products I use on my skin as it is easily irritated but as I have used stuff from this range before without any problems, I was anticipating any this time either.
The smell of this is really nice. It isn't a womanly smell at all, it is quite unisex for a bath oil, I personally think. I only used a bit under the running water of the tap. As soon as I poured the liquid into the bath (taking care to hardly use any in case I was found out) I could smell the rosemary very strongly. It was for this reason I opened the bathroom window a bit just in case she came upstairs and could detect it for herself.
The oil is slippy so be careful it doesn't go on the bottom of the bath or you do yourself a mischief. It is lovely to lie in and a very relaxing bath. It definitely eased my tired and aching muscles and I swear it even helped to shift my headache as I didn't need to take any painkillers for my head afterwards as I had expected to.
Rosemary is supposed to be good for fighting fatigue and energizing the mind and body and I must admit I did feel very refreshed after I had used this. I also was very pleased that I didn't step out of the bath smelling like a girl. It left my skin feeling a lot smoother than it had before I went in, though I think only I noticed this, not my other half. I notice there is still over half a bottle of this left in our bathroom and I may get the chance to use it again at some point before she uses the lot up, if I am lucky. I suspect she already has an inkling I occasionally use some of these products anyway. This bath oil is definitely one of my favourites though. It made me feel a whole lot better and it was a nice treat.
It's far too expensive to use on a daily basis but every once in a while I think it's great stuff and highly recommended for men and women, I think.
After a long day of work or if you are tired a bath with the bath oil of Dr.Hauschka Rosemary might be actually what you need. The sweet smell of rosemary is energizing that works perfectly with fatigue and exhaustion. The stimulating, warming effect stimulates blood circulation. The ideal bath for people who are shaky and tired. It stimulates the body and is refreshing. The bath strengthens the connective tissue and stimulates the skin's own functions. And gives vitality to body and mind.
Rosemary Tea has an extraordinary buzz. The blood circulation is stimulated, fatigue and depression disappear. Externally, rosemary used in the form of herbal bath oil, body oil or cream is good for muscle and joint rheumatism and gout. Rosemary also has an antibacterial function.
The manufacturer recommends two teaspoons of bath oil added to the running water. This is to prevent you from slipping in the bath when stepping in. The bottle is clear glass and has a white screw cap. The label is predominantly white, with blue features Dr.Hauschka bath. Just a simple bottle without too much fuss. The label will find the brand and product name. The bottle has a capacity of 150 ml. The bottle is again packed in a cardboard box, it is predominantly white and looks just like the label on the bottle.
The color of this bath oil is yellow, and as you might suspect already smell the sweet and sharp. If you smell the bottle it might be a bit strong, but when dosed to the water is added the warm sweet smell, and certainly not dominant.
This was a delicious treat product. A bath with this bath oil gives a very relaxing effect. This really is a oil that I use when I'm feeling feverish, or just want to relax. My skin feels after using soft and supple. With a bottle of 150 ml you can get around 20 baths which is not too bad.
For Pale & Dry Skin / Rosemary Bath contains essential oil of Rosemary which warms and vitalises the body. The bath concentrates support the other skin care products.
