When was the last time you took a soak in your tub? Many of you have mentioned on our Facebook page that one of your New Year’s resolutions is to focus on creating a happier, healthier you. Don’t forget to have some “me” time every once and awhile. What is more relaxing than a bath?
I want to share some factoids with you about the benefits of some tub time in the hopes of encouraging you to take the time to pamper yourself with a relaxing bath! Some people avoid bath salts because they are afraid they will dry out their skin. And it’s true, they can. However, we whip our bath salts up with great oils (jojoba and almond) that moisturize your skin while you’re enjoying your bath.
Sea salt is full of minerals and nutrients that benefit your skin and body. As a matter of fact, it’s been known for centuries for its ability to help alleviate such conditions as arthritis, poor circulation, and muscle soreness. It’s a powerful detoxifying agent as well. Sea salt infused with essential oils are a great way to transform your normal bathing experience into a healing one by combating stress, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, joint pain, and skin conditions. What a simple remedy for de-stressing from the holidays! You can make your own very simply by mixing salts with some moisturizing oils, and essential oils. Or, of course, we offer many different scents of salts. We have bath salts you can buy online or artisan bath salts you can find at a participating retailer.
What is my personal favorite? It really depends on my mood and time of day, etc. But I always keep some Eucalyptus on hand in the winter. It’s so therapeutic that we make it in both our Effervescent (foaming) Bath Salts, and our new Exfoliating (can also be used as a scrub) Bath Salts.
I hope I have inspired you to take some time out for yourself and take a nice long bath. Happy New Year!
