Being sick for a week really chipped away at my senses and spirit, but one shower with this stimulating Herbacin gel and I feel like I’ve come back to life. The invigorating scent helped clear up my sinus congestion, while the aromatherapy alleviated tension. Creator Herbacin has been around since 1905 growing their own ingredients, which in this case include lemongrass and ginger. The lemongrass treats breakouts on your skin, eliminating excess oil that can harbor unwanted bacteria. That cleansing treatment also means you can try this out on your hair. I’m more interested in the ginger, though – the Chinese have been using it for centuries to cure colds, which is why I think this shower gel has been such a gift to me (it smells just like my cold remedy!). The herb balances out your chi and is even taken by women after giving birth to strengthen and revive them. Even if you’re not on the mend, the spicy kick of ginger is great for waking you up in the mornings. It’s definitely something more exciting than the usual boring scents! Available on drugstore.com for $7.50.
