Some people choose to unwind after a stressful day by rooting themselves in front of the TV with a lap full of snacks. Others prefer a stiff cocktail. But a far more effective, not to mention healthier and guilt hangover-free, alternative is simply to recreate a spa experience at home. What better way to recharge your internal batteries than by soaking in a bath enveloped in therapeutic oils and aromas.

To help you achieve mind and body relaxation without breaking the bank, we'd like to offer one lucky reader a set of three spa-quality products by Sothys- the French skincare line that grew out of a beauty institute in Paris over 60 years ago. The prize includes the following three-step program, which is part of the Sothys-Aroma relaxation range:

Energizing Bath Essences Tablets ($26) enhance the bathing experience with their tonic properties and energizing fragrance. These playful, effervescent pebbles transform your bath from boring to revitalizing.

Energizing Essential Oils Elixir ($26) is an extra-concentrated dry oil formulated with invigorating natural ingredients. After being massaged into your tension spots, this mixture is meant to tone, soften, and revitalize skin.

Massage Elixir ($38) blends ginger, mandarin, marula, nutmeg, and orange essential oils. It can be applied to wet or dry skin to lend a silky, fragrant finish as you moisturize.
