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 love this product. My skin is not dry and although I don’t skimp on the usage and shower twice a day. It lasts really well. Excellent product and I am happy I am not using plastic bottles.
Excellent smell and makes my skin smooth.
I’m not sure how these scents appeal to anyone as I actually find it rather difficult to stomach them when showering. I’m sure it was a good idea and I love the aluminium bottle but I won’t be repurchasing this shower gel alternative again.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, KJ. We're really sorry to read that you did not get along with our scents. Just so you know, we also offer an unscented body wash which only smells like the natural ingredients it contains (Shea Butter, Aloe Vera & Jojoba); therefore a very light, yet lovely natural scent. This might be a better fit . In the meantime, always feel free to reach out to us. Love and suds. Your ETHOSA Team
My best one! I enjoy ever Day! Thank you so much! 🌙💫🪐
"Brilliant shower gel… feels like silk on the skin.
I’ve been using it every day for two weeks…and plan to use it all the time from now on.
I love the sponge too, it makes my skin feel refreshed and invigorated.
The container is wonderfully practical and looks fantastically elegant …
altogether a great find!
