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."

The concept is great and I will definitely order further gel refills however I am having difficulty justifying another £8+ for a new sponge. I definitely expected it to last longer than it has before getting holes. I think I have used it , usually twice a day for the last 5 weeks ish
I was excited to discover this sponge and something which was more ethical and sustainable. However my sponge has not lasted long, it got holes in very quickly and I expected better. Sorry!
Hi Lisa. Thanks for leaving us this review. We are sorry to hear, that our body konjac sponge did not meet your expectations. It's a 100% natural product and does indeed biodegrade over time. However, you should still be able to use it for approx. 5 weeks. We would be happy to offer you a replacement to give it another try. Would that be ok for you?
Love & suds,
Your ETHOSA Team
Hi Samantha. Thanks for leaving us this review. We are sorry to hear, that you are not satisfied by the size of our sponges. This already is the larger 'body' size, compare to the small round facial sponges. Even bigger sizes are not available with us, I'm afraid. Please always feel free to reach out with any questions you might have.
Love & suds,
Your ETHOSA Team
I had high hopes for this, it was expensive but I try to be sustainable so decided to go for it! The product itself is good but the sponge is too small for me to be useful, unfortunately I've reverted to my body puff...
Don’t be fooled by the hard sponge when you take it out of the packaging, when I soaked in water it becomes super-soft and spongey.
Lathers up a treat and left my skin feeling soft and squeaky clean as it gently exfoliates, it also last a long time, my current one is on week 6 and still going good.
I’m definitely converted from my non-eco-friendly old plastic scrubbing gloves.
