ETHOSA’s shower gel scents are inspired by Aromatherapy.
What are Aromatherapy and Essential Oils?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. It has been used for centuries. When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional centre of the brain and generate a lot of benefits. Essential oils are basically plant extracts. They’re made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce fragrance.
Scent 1 – Eucalyptus & Citrus
This scent will literally turn your bathroom into a spa. The Eucalyptus is refreshing and relaxing and promotes an overall scent of well-being while the Citrus brings some sweetness and zestiness; it’s a powerful mood booster.
Scent 2 – Cedarwood, Peppermint & Pink Hibiscus
This scent will connect you back to nature. While the Cedarwood brings a calming and grounding aroma that makes you feel like you’re on a stroll in a pine forest, the Peppermint helps relax the body and brings some freshness. The Pink Hibiscus brings a unique touch with its sweet aroma that transports you into a tropical garden.
"Loved ‘making it myself’ - the texture is exactly how you want it to be and the smell is gorgeous. Because it smells so lovely, I was a bit worried it might make my sensitive skin a bit dry or sore - but quite the opposite… even using it every day my skin is very happy! Thank you Ethosa!"

"This is such a lovely concept and product. Putting the gel together is very easy, and it’s great that it means less water is used to make it. It has essential oils, and the end product has a lovely and relaxing scent. Great product with great environmental credentials!"

"Really impressed with the shower gel. I loved the aroma, and how the product lathers on the skin. The sponge too! Wonderful texture and absorbs the shower gel so it lasts a long time while showering, I use a lot less product than expected per shower."

I used baby shower gel for years because it was the softest for my skin, so was reluctant to try Ethosa. I’m very happy that it has been great and not planning to go back to my previous one. It’s so soft to touch!
A great eco-friendly Starter kit for sensitive skin. I have had no irritation or dryness it's been so good. The set was really easy to use. Fill the aluminum bottle up with warm water add the sachet and shake. The smell is absolutely incredible. Would highly recommend.
Used for the first time this morning. Skin feels lovely, but not keen on the scent I chose. I will order the unscented one when I buy the refill. Also not keen on the texture of the sponge, so back to my less than green body puff until I find a suitable alternative. I do like the shower gel so I've still given it 5 stars.
Love that I’m not using and plastic, I use the sensitive shower cream and have no problems my skin feels so soft.
Creamy and non irritating, but to get a good lather you need a decent amount so the '45 showers' claim feels far fetched, we used it up within 2 weeks. So the price is just too much to be buying it every 2 weeks unfortunately. If you can afford it, it's a nice body wash
Hi Fiona. Thanks for leaving us this review. We are happy to hear, that you like the quality of our natural body wash! From your comment, we understand, that you are using it together with at least 1 other person? The estimation of 45 showers with our 400ml is based on average consumption of 1 person. So, maybe that clears things up a bit :-) Also, we offer packs of 10 refills, where the price per 400ml actually drops to £4.90. We hope that helps a bit - Always feel free to reach out in case you have any further question!
Love & suds,
Your ETHOSA Team
