Smooth and Green

I think this is a great option for a nice bath oil. It doesn't leave you feeling dirty or greasy, the scent is nice and relaxing, and it makes your skin feel nice and soft. It makes for a wonderfully relaxing bath.

Dona's herbal bath essence is a bath oil. You just pour a little into running bath water and enjoy the scent while the oils moisturizer your skin. I use maybe one or two capfuls per bath, which is more than enough to feel the moisturizing effects and smell the nice scent throughout your bath. Using it like this, you can get maybe ten or twelve uses out of a bottle. I chose the Camu Camu scent, and I find that it smells very refreshing and green. Kind of leafy, although the exact scent is hard to pin down. I would almost liken it to a forest after a nice rain, or freshly cut foliage. I find that there is a nice vanilla undertone to it as well. The scent is probably my favorite thing about this bath oil.

The Dona Herbal Bath Essence comes in a simple 6 oz bottle that is about the size of my hand. It has a screw off top that is easy to open and close, so you shouldn't have to worry about it spilling if you want to toss it in a bag and take it with you. The label covers the whole bottle and is very pretty. There is nothing about the bottle that would make it inappropriate to just have sitting around your bathroom. It has a pretty black lace pattern on a blue background with the words Dona aphrodisiac infused ritual and the name of the product in small white letters. It also repeats the phrase "arousing herbal bath essences" in Spanish, French, and German. All instructions and warnings are also repeated in each of those three languages. The bottle has an allergy warning, reminding the user that the product contains high amounts of plant extracts and to check the ingredient label before use.

Some of the ingredients may cause allergic reactions for some people. The first listed ingredient is glycerin, which some people are sensitive to. If glycerin irritates your skin or makes you prone to yeast infections, you should use this product with great caution. Some of the plant extracts listed are ginsing root, ginkgo biloba, centella asiatica, guarana, damiana, ptychopetalum olacoides (potency wood), arnica Montana flower, and Yohimbe. If you have had adverse reactions to any of those plants or their extracts, I would not advise using this product. It also contains castor oil and some fragrance. The label also adds that it is paraben free, petroleum derivative free, cruelty free (no animal by-products and not tested on animals) and that it is made from natural products. Many of these plants are known for their possible aphrodisiac effects, but I really don't think soaking in them can do much to turn you on. However, you have to admit that sometimes a nice relaxing soak can put you in the right mood anyway.

The bath essence is designed to moisturize your skin while you are bathing, and I do find that my skin feels very nice and smooth after a bath with the essence added. It doesn't feel oily or thick, and it mixes very well with the bath water. Best of all, it doesn't coat my skin, clog my pores, or make me feel dirty. I get out of the bath feeling as clean as I would if i had bathed in plain water. It doesn't pool on top of the water like some other bath oils I have used. It also doesn't cloud the water. It may just be my imagination, but I think it may tint the water very slightly. It looked like a very pale green tint. No worries, though, I haven't noticed any difference in the color of my bathtub. It doesn't make the tub very slippery after I get out, either. However, if your bathtub is part of your shower, I would give it a rinse when you get out just to be sure. My tub is a stand alone bathtub, so I don't really have to worry about being able to stand in it.

I think my favorite thing about the bath essence is the way it feels on my skin. When I finish my bath, my skin feels soft and smooth but not oily or greasy. I don't feel like I need to rinse my skin after I get out of the bath. I've used other bath oils in the past, and they make me feel like I need to get into a shower and exfoliate my whole body because I just feel greasy. This oil seems to absorb into the skin instead of sitting on top. This is a very high quality bath oil.
Experience
I used the Camu Camu bath oil along with the Camu Camu bath salts by Dona, and together they made for a very relaxing and enjoyable bath experience. The scent is fresh and relaxing, and a little invigorating. As I said before, the best way I can describe it is that it smells green. Like some freshly cut exotic foliage, with a warm, sweet undertone of of vanilla. I don't think it is much of an aphrodisiac, but the smell is nice for relaxation and meditation.
