Indulging in a bath is a great way to soothe the mind, ease discomfort, relax the body, and simply enjoy a little much-needed “me time.” Bath salts elevate the experience, and we at Better Bath Better Body have got you covered with all-natural bath soaks to take it up a notch.
Different Ways To Use Bath Salts
Bath salts are versatile and can elevate various bathing experiences. For a soothing and comfortable session, consider incorporating them into a sitz bath along with our specially crafted Sitz Bath Soak.
This blend, featuring invigorating scents like frankincense, lavender, geranium, niaouli, and juniper, aims to provide relaxation and ease to the perineum and bottom area.
To enjoy this comforting experience, you can opt for a portable sitz bath placed on the toilet bowl or immerse yourself in a tub with a few inches of water. As you unwind, the fresh and natural essential oils work their magic, creating a serene atmosphere and enhancing the overall sense of relaxation.
You can also use bath salts for foot soaks. Our feet work hard every day, and sometimes, they can use the relaxation and comfort a good epsom salt soak provides.
Our Detox Foot Soak is an uplifting, invigorating, and refreshing blend of lemon, peppermint, frankincense, and lavender essential oils alongside USP Grade epsom salt and fractionated MCT coconut oil.
To take a foot soak, you can use either a foot-soaking basin or a standard bathtub filled with a few inches of water. Add about 1 tablespoon of epsom salt for each gallon of water, and prepare to soak for around 20 minutes.
Along with sitz baths and foot soaks, epsom salts are an excellent additive to a full-body bath. Consider using our Stress Relief Bath Soak, a blend that incorporates essential oils of eucalyptus and spearmint to create a simple, soothing, and relaxing aroma.
The light aromatherapy is perfect for either a relaxing pre-bedtime bath or an invigorating morning or afternoon soak, making it a versatile blend for any mood.
When taking a standard full-body bath with bath salts, you’ll want to run warm water first. Make sure it’s warm enough to soothe but not too hot that it could be uncomfortable.
After running the bath, add about ½ cup to 1 full cup of your chosen bath salts to the water, agitating it gently so they dissolve. As you sink into the bath, take a deep breath and notice the aromatherapy from the pure essential oils traveling upward in the steam.
Allow the natural aromas to envelop you as you feel the warm water hug your body. After your full bath, rise carefully and pat the skin dry with a soft, clean towel.
Follow up with any moisturizers or lotions you love for a complete pampering experience. A full-body aromatherapy bath should only take around 20 to 25 minutes, making it easy to fit into your morning, afternoon, or nighttime routine.
Bath Salts In The Shower
Bath salts offer more than just a relaxing bath experience –– they can also enhance your shower routine. If you enjoy the soothing aromatherapy of your favorite bath salt blend, incorporating it into your shower is a simple and delightful process.
Once you've started the hot water in the shower, grab a small handful of your preferred bath salt blend and sprinkle it onto the shower floor. As the warm water engages with the salt, it dissolves, releasing the essential oils into the air through the steam it generates.
This effortless method is particularly effective for invigorating salt blends like our Tranquility Bath Soak, featuring chamomile and lemongrass. Transform your morning shower into a revitalizing and uplifting experience with this easy technique.
By using bath salts this way, you avoid any mess or residue. The salts effortlessly dissolve on the shower floor, while the essential oils linger in the steam until they gradually dissipate into the air.
For an added dose of aromatherapy, consider staying in the steamy bathroom after your shower. Take your time dressing, brushing your teeth, and combing your hair, reveling in the aromatic ambiance until the steam naturally fades away.
Bath Salts In Skincare
Bath salts also have their place in skincare. Using your chosen blend, you may mix your bath salts with a shower gel to create a coarse paste for exfoliating the skin.
Rubbing the mixture onto the skin gently and rinsing away washes away the dead skin cells that may leave the skin looking dull or feeling uncomfortable. This can help to achieve a smoother shave, a more radiant complexion, and skin that is better equipped to absorb skincare products.
You can also use bath salts with or without a shower gel. Simply take a pinch or two of epsom salt to exfoliate. When rubbing, make sure not to press onto the skin too hard.
Use gentle circular motions to get the most exfoliation from your salt. After exfoliating, it’s important to rinse away any remaining bath salt and dead skin cells for completely renewed skin.
To truly enjoy a relaxing experience, follow up your exfoliation session with a lotion or body moisturizer. Your fresh, renewed, and pampered skin will be able to better absorb the products you’ll put on it and maximize the benefits.
Incorporate the rejuvenating power of bath salts into your self-care routine with Better Bath Better Body. Whether it's a sitz bath, foot soak, or full-body immersion, our all-natural blends offer an array of scents for relaxation.
Elevate your self-care ritual effortlessly, and don't forget to indulge your skin in a revitalizing exfoliation for a renewed and pampered glow. Treat yourself to the ultimate relaxation, effortlessly incorporating bath salts into every aspect of your routine.
