Hey, Laura here!
When I was working in the shop recently I realised I didn't really know what bath salts actually did apart from looking pretty and making you feel relaxed. I got curious and decided to delve a little deeper into the magic of bath salts. To tell you the truth, I was completely blown away by how much they heal our skin and help our overall well-being!
I figured a lot of you are probably where I was with it too, so I ended up getting carried away and here I am, writing a blog post about it...
To begin with, they are great for cleansing, detoxifying, and restoring a healthy glow to your skin. If you have dry skin or conditions such as eczema or psoriasis then it’s well worth regularly bathing in bath salts to reduce redness and irritation.
Their healing powers aren’t just surface deep either, bath salts help with muscle pain (making them a post-workout essential!) and have been proven to help with swollen and inflamed joints too.
Plus, they’re not just great for your body but also help with your mind’s healing too. Soaking in a warm, calming bath of salts is a known aid to help with anxiety, depression, and even insomnia - so it’s well worth having a soak before bed.
When put together with other natural ingredients, there’s no end to how much they help your overall health. We stock some of the best combos of bath salts out there, all designed to enhance your well-being including:
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and citric acid, so they naturally brighten and refresh your skin. Plus, Lemon has proven antibacterial and antiviral properties too which can accelerate the skin's healing process
Calendula is a beautiful summer flower known for its ability to soothe redness, lessen swelling and help body tissue regenerate.
Together they are the ultimate power couple for a skin rejuvenating soak.

We all know how beautiful roses are, but did you know they contain natural
anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and astringent properties? Plus they're full of natural oils and Vitamin C which hydrate and replenish dull, dry skin
Ylang ylang is a fruity and rich smelling tropical flower known for its ability to help reduce anxiety and even boost your mood.
What better way to start the day than a refreshing soak in a mix of the two?

Coconut is one of the world's best natural moisturisers but is also incredibly cleansing and also has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it perfect for dry skin.
Almonds have anti-ageing properties which help skin regenerate naturally.
It also contains vitamins A & E that protect skin from sun damage and stimulate skin cell generation.
The combination of the two creates beautifully soft and rejuvenated skin.

They’re not just good for a long soak in the bath either, you can easily add your choice of oil to turn them into a foot or body scrub to use in the shower.
