Softly scented with vetivert and lavender, and spiked with hydrating coconut oil, This Works’ Deep Calm Bath and Shower oil is a relaxing, skin coddling respite.

When you really want to slow down, unwind and be quiet… this soothing, grounding fusion of Vertivert, Lavender and Camomile will bring the world to a stand still.


This Works Bath and Shower oils are 100% preservative free and hand blended at a 30% concentration- a level unheard of in standard retail products of this kind. This means that they are truly powerful, effective and therapeutic.

It’s a total bliss; the aroma is so relaxing & calming – better than prozac or valium. It’s an absolute treat for my body & soul!

A complex heart of coriander, clove and clary sage give way to the aromatic woody aromas of Moroccan cedarwood, patchouli and vetiver. Earthy and sophisticated, this is a scent for men and women alike.

USIKU – Inspired by the sensual steam room of the Moroccan harem, this highly concentrated and deeply aromatic bath essence combines the soothing, relaxing properties of cedarwood and vetiver with cardamom and ginger to warm the heart and lift the spirits.

This highly concentrated blend of essential oils produces an opulent milky bath; let  the heat of the water allows the therapeutic oils to fill the air. Sweet Birch takes care of aching muscles with its anti-inflammatory properties and also soothes and softens the skin. Spicy Fennel helps increase circulation and disperses water retention. Refreshing Peppermint combats mental fatigue, stimulates and increases mental agility, as well as easing headaches and migraines. Finally, Fir needle helps to balance the nervous system, uplift your spirits and, teamed with Fennel helps to combat muscular aches and signs of cellulite.

I am totally intoxicated ( in a real nice way ).
