Pure Indulgence with Bodhi


WheBodhi  asked me if I would like to consider reviewing their products I admit I did a happy dance. This is a brand I have admired from afar. Bodhi is a premium beauty brand with products free from petrochemicals, sulphates, parabens, phthalates, glycols, PEGs, DEAs, synthetic polymers, synthetic fragrance or colours, palm oil, animal ingredients and are against animal testing. Let just say I am very impressed with the ingredients policy.

Bodhi means enlightenment and the concept behind the range is to indulge the senses with essential oils. Think spa treatment and therapy in a bottle. There are seven unisex scents - Galangai Spice, Jasmine Falls, Mint The, Palmarosa Verde, Pep Noir, Rosemary Chi and Ylang-Ylang Incensa. Each fragrance is available as a bath & shower gel and four of them as a body moisturiser. 

I felt very spoilt when I opened the parcel. I received a Love for Her gift set (pictured above & below) which contains a 250ml bottle of Bath & Shower Therapy and a 40ml tube of body moisturiser in the fragrance Ylang-Ylang Incensa. 

I also received a 50ml travel size Palmarosa Verde Bath & Shower Therapy.  


Bodhi had asked me which scents I would like to try.  I admit I found it slightly overwhelming to figure out which fragrance would suit me as they all sound amazing.  I had to put faith in the descriptions but I have to say my choices were spot on.  The fragrances are divine and I adore them both.  I am not the greatest at describing fragrance so here are Bodhi’s descriptions taken from the website. 

Palmarosa Verde - Spring clean your skin with our purifying blend of Palmarosa, Bourbon Geranium and Bulgarian Damask Rose Absolute. Embrace sunny mornings, freshly mown grass and the scent of budding blossom in the air. Skin is refreshed, feels purified and enlivened with a delicate fragrance. Suitable for all skin types, especially combination. 

Ylang-Ylang Incensa - Luxuriate in the Oriental sensuality of Ylang-Ylang and Patchouli, spiked with Honeysuckle, Neroli and Pink Peppercorn. Intensely flighty, yet seriously grounded – this is Yin & Yang in perfect balance. Skin is left soothed, soft, supple and highly fragrant. Suitable for all skin types, especially dry or irritated. 

Bodhi products are fragrant and effective because they contain a high ratio of quality essential oils and perfume grade absolutes. I have concentrated on using the Ylang-Ylang Incensa as I am saving the travel size Palmarosa Verde for my upcoming holiday. I adore the way the scent lingers around bathroom and on your skin for several hours. I have had some awful news in recent weeks along with feeling unwell and I can honestly say Bodhi has lifted my spirits. Now I know a shower gel cannot solve my problems but for me Bodhi has provided a little moment of bliss and relaxation. 


The body wash is as you would expect in terms of consistency (pictured above). You only require a small amount to foam up into a creamy lather.  To give you some idea the picture below illustrates how much I have used in a two-three week time frame.


I have not experienced any problems with irritation from the essential oils and after washing my skin feels soft, never tight. This body wash is lovely on my fussy skin but it’s not great for my water bill. :D I am spending far longer in the shower than normal. I just cannot help indulging myself with this product. I have also tested this out in the bath. It produces lovely bubbles unfortunately they did not stay around for long. Despite disappearing bubbles the water remains fragrant so you do benefit from the aroma of the essential oils. 



I love the idea of having a body cream in a matching fragrance to the body wash. You can continue indulging in the scent outside of the bathroom. The body cream has a light texture. I don’t have anything to compare it to because I use shea butter which are heavy in texture. I find the cream hydrating and have noticed it lasts the day, no sign of the dry patches I suffer from, especially on my legs. 


A 250ml bottle of body wash or moisturiser costs £23. I have said on my blog I loathe spending large amounts of money on shower gels. However, I believe Bodhi is offering a completely unique experience. This is not your average body wash, this is a skincare product. The quality and volume of essential oils warrants the extra expense. Bodhi is comparable in price to brands like Aveda, Elemis, REN, Elemental Herbology, Pai and Aromatherapy Associates. 

Overall, Bodhi has quickly become a firm favourite in my bathroom.  If you would like to treat yourself or give an amazing gift then Bodhi is my number one recommendation. Perhaps try their “Little Treats” pouches for £12 if you are feeling the pinch of the credit crunch.

Has anyone else tried Bodhi? What did you think?

  2. I also love body wash and body lotion with the same scent. Years ago, I used to use Yves Rocher, they have really good fruity scents, but that was before I start to care about ingredients.
