I Only Wanted To See You Bathing In The Purple Rain.

The Dona sensual Chromotherapy is a wonderfully fun product. It's suppose to have healing properties to help align the chakras, but this kind of alternative medicine is in the eye of the beholder. Whether or not you believe in this use won't make it any less fun. There are 6 super fruit infused options to pick from, but this also picks your color option. This is a product that everyone can enjoy. Even those with sensitive skin.

Use

System Jo's Dona line of bath and beauty products includes the Dona Sensual Chromotherapy bath treatment. The idea behind the Chromotherapy bath treatment is to allow yourself to relax in the bath and harness the healing power from the color.

Chromotherapy is known as color therapy. This is a form of alternative medicine that some therapist are trained in. The therapist say that chromotherapy uses light in the form of colors to help balance the energy that a person is missing on a physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental level. Those who practice Choromotherapy are known as Ayurvedic Medicine Practitioners.

Ayurvedic Medicine is a Hindu traditional medicine that is native to India. This uses the belief that the body has seven Chakras. The seven chakras are:

Chakra's

Red: The base of the spine which functions your grounding and survival, but is related to the Gonads, kidneys, spine, and sense of smell.
Orange: The Lower abdomen and/or genitals which functions your Emotions and/or sexuality, but is related to the urinary tract, circulation, and reproduction.
Yellow: The Solar Plexus or Celiac Plexus which functions your ego and/or power, but is related to the stomach, liver, gall bladder, and pancreas.
Green: The Heart which functions your love and/or sense of responsibility, but is related to the Heart, lungs, and thymus.
Blue: The Throat which functions your Physical and spiritual communication, but is related to the Throat, ears, mouth, and hands.
Indigo: Just above the center of the brow in the middle of forehead which functions your Forgiveness, compassion, and/or understanding, but is related to the eyes and pineal glands.
Violet: The Crown of the head which functions the connection with universal energies and/or transmission of ideas and information, but is related to the Pituitary gland, the central nervous system, and the cerebral cortex.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The Chromotheray bath treatment comes in a 4.25 oz bottle with a top hat you press down and it pops up. There is a small rectangle cut out that is exposed when you pop the tab up. This will dispense your bath treatment. Be careful with tipping the bottle too much because this stuff comes out fast. It's the consistency of water. When you look at it in the bottle; you can see that it looks like water with some food coloring in it.



You are meant to pour it right into the bath water, but I went ahead and poured it into my hand to see if it would stain. The purple color did stain my hand (pictured above.) In my hand this was really runny, but it wasn't oily or greasy. It didn't leave a sticky residue or any other kid of residue on my skin.

Since it stained my skin; I thought for sure it would stain the sink, but it don't. My sink is white and there was no stain or any other residue in the sink.

Taste / Aroma

So far I have only had the pleasure to test out the Acai. Acai has been my go to scent option for the Dona line because I've been the happiest with it. However, just because it's labeled Acai doesn't mean it's suppose to smell like Acai berries. The Dona line uses aphrodisiac infused super fruits to give some scent to their products. So, when you order the option you are actually picking what super fruit it's infused with.

The Acai smells mostly like flowers. I can smell some spice and fruity smell, but mostly floral. The smell is very strong out of the bottle, but when you drop it into the bath water it begins to fade. The smell that fills the room is wonderful. There is a nice relaxing floral smell with a hint of berries and spice that fills the entire bathroom. I even notice it lingers outside of the bathroom. This is not over powering, but that will vary per amount that is added. The smell does linger around after the tub is drained.

Performance



When you pour it into your bath water you will need a number of droplets to have the dark color (at least with the Acai.) When it first was added to the bath water it spread dark rings around the water, but it stays separated until you swirl it together.



Swirling around the color, it becomes one with the bath water. The color then is extremely light. It goes from being a dark violet color to being lavender. However, you can add more to darken the color. But you might get overwhelmed with the scent if you over do the droplets.

Once you are inside the bath water all you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself. Once the color is mixed well into the bath water it doesn't stain you skin or hair. And I didn't have issues with it staining the tub, but to be far my tub is black. So, I tested it in my white sink. I had no issues wit that. However straight out of the bottle onto my skin did stain. In order to clean this stain off of my hand I tried scrubbing it with soap and using my nails, but it didn't come off. Luckily it went away within a day.

During the time you soak in the bath; you can't even tell this treatment is in the water. It feels like you are taking a completely natural bath. I don't notice any residue on my skin. I even dunked my head under water to soak my hair into the treatment. I didn't notice that it dried out my hair or left anything undesirable behind.

Should you not like this bath treatment all you have to do is drain the tub and rinse it. That will completely get raid of the bath treatment in the tub, but you will need to shower yourself.

Personal comments

My opinion about the Chromotherapy and alternative medicine practice.

I do believe that colors can harbor energy that can feed your mind and body. However, I don't think that I would relay on color treatment to save my life. I'm a septic when it comes to many things that are like this. And often think that if you believe in something enough; it might just work for you. This is known as the placebo effect.

I believe Chromotherapy to be nothing more then the placebo effect. However, that doesn't make it any less fun or interesting. If it works for you... that is wonderful! But if it doesn't....I see no big loss.

Explanation of my title...

I think it's pretty self explanatory to a Prince fan, but not everyone will know it. I'm a huge fan of 80's music. I love big hair, fun times, and good music. When I was thinking about a title I started thinking purple water....hummm??? And then the song hit me.

Prince's Purple Rain was a song in my child that I adored. I watched the movie several times. And I had a little crush on Prince as a small girl. I was reading through the Lyrics when I saw " I only wanted to see you bathing in the Purple Rain." That was prefect! Exactly what I was looking for.

Experience

I originally bought this because of my son. I thought he would enjoy having colored bath water. But I didn't think when I picked the scent option. Since I have a black bath tub; the purple color to the water doesn't show up. Silly me! I should have ordered the Pomegranate or the Manogsteen because those colors would have showed up well in my black tub.

Anyhow, since my son didn't get to enjoy some colored bath water; I got to take a bath for the first time in 2 years. I have sensitive skin because I suffer from Eczema. However, I am happy to inform you that this bath treatment didn't bother my skin. But that doesn't mean it won't bother yours! I don't use this bath treatment daily or even weekly. I use it in moderation as to not irritate my skin horribly. As long as you treat this bath treatment as a treat; you should be just fine.
