I have been a fan of Weleda for a while now and as with Christmas on its way, gift sets are coming in thick and fast from all directions. Weleda is no exception and this Weleda Arnica Sports Gift Set is not just for the athletic types amongst you. I don’t do marathons or triathlons but I do Zumba and I can tell you- after an hour you really know you’ve exercised. Putting this to the test after a Zumba session seemed the perfect opportunity to try it out.
The Weleda Arnica Sports Gift Set comes with an Arnica Shower Gel and Arnica Muscle Soak all boxed up with a cute little tag on. I will say if you do get any of the sets, be careful when you open it! I actually broke the shower gel cap right off when opening it .
Both scents are bursting with a really relaxing rosemary and lavender fragrance that won’t leave you smelling like your nan. Arnica helps heal bruising, and relaxes strained muscles and aches. I used the soak and I can honesty say I haven’t felt so relaxed in such a long time. It’s a very fluid texture- very milk like and there are no bubbles either. The steam rose and made me feel so calm and my muscles felt soothed. It also led to one of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in a long time.
The shower gel is perfect for on the go, straight after the gym or class and leaves you feel invigorated.
I love the Weleda packaging- simple but bright and colourful. Each item from their entire range is colour coded- so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for and buy from the correct collection (i.e. Arnica is orange packaging, pink packaging is Almond- you get the gist). I also love the apothecary style green glass bottle for the muscle soak.
All Weleda products are dermatologically tested. They are also free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colourants, and raw materials derived from mineral oils.
What’s also interesting is the ingredients list that they have on their website with descriptions of every ingredient. Brilliant idea. You can find that HERE.
This set is available now for £16.95 HERE. I’d also suggest the Sea Bucktorn creamy body wash which is divine.
This is the perfect present for anyone that needs a good chill out and relax. Goodness knows it did me the world of good!
