Bath lovers know that what goes into a bath really creates the full experience. Natural bath salts are a must-have to achieve the maximum soothing benefits a good bath has to offer.
When you take a bath, you’re soaking your body for a prolonged period of time. While 15 to 20 minutes may not seem very long, and it’s not long in the grand scheme of things, it is long enough for your skin to be exposed to any additives you may be putting in your bath. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and caring for it means caring what it is exposed to.
Choosing bath products that focus on natural ingredients means caring for what you’re exposing your body to. Not just the skin, breathing in the aromas from the water creates exposure as well. Synthetic fragrances created with various chemicals may create discomfort or inauthentic aromas that simply don’t add anything beneficial to the bath. How can one be mindful in their bathing experience when they’re distracted by cloying or unbalanced scents? Natural is authentic, and natural helps to provide aromatherapeutic benefits simply not found with many synthetic perfume or fragrance options.
A Natural Salt Base
Bath products made with natural ingredients should start with a natural base. This could be Mediterranean Sea salt, Dead Sea salt, or USP grade epsom salt. With epsom salt, USP grading is a significant distinction and one that should never be skipped over by anyone looking for an authentic natural product.
USP stands for United States Pharmacopeia, an organization that has been setting standards for personal care products for just under 200 years. A USP grade on any product shows that the product has met all safety and authenticity standards, making it safe and trustworthy for use. USP grade epsom salt is epsom salt that is guaranteed for purity, potency, and authenticity. Epsom salt without this certification may be salt that is cut with other products to make the salt “go further” or inauthentic altogether.
The intoxicating scent coming from the steam on a good bath is part of what many love about the bathing experience. However, what good is that aroma really doing? By using phthalate-free fragrance and all-natural essential oils, there is plenty of benefit to be had. Synthetic fragrances may contain any number of chemicals or ingredients, all held under the same “fragrance” umbrella. This means you could be inviting unwanted ingredients into your bath without even knowing it.
All-natural essential oils are derived from nature, coming straight from the plants they’re representing. Eucalyptus oil comes from the eucalyptus plant, lavender from lavender, and so on. This provides not just reliable scent, but clear ingredients one can rely on when they enjoy their bath. These natural aromas also provide natural aromatherapy, which can help to invoke feelings of soothing, comfort, relaxation, rejuvenation, and more.
Natural aromas work to provide that full body bathing experience that envelops the bather in a mood, an atmosphere, or a feeling.
An Any Occasion Natural Bath
Some natural bath products really focus on relaxation, some on comfort, some on upliftment and motivation, and some are perfect for “anytime”. Anytime or any occasion natural bath products are excellent for those new to bathing for self-care, those looking for a product they can always turn to, or those looking to gift natural bath products to others. Detox Bath Soak is just one of those types of products.
Detox Bath Soak features a base of USP grade epsom salt, which is complemented by MCT fractionated coconut oil for moisturizing, Vitamin C crystals for purifying, and Vitamin E oil for nourishing. Providing aroma to the blend are natural essential oils of lemon and ginger. Lemon essential oil is well-known to bring about feelings of brightness and zest, perfect for creating an uplifted mood. Balancing out the lemon essential oil is ginger, an oil well-loved for its ability to comfort and ground using a spicy warm aroma. The result of these two oils working together is a bright and invigorating blend that also gives a bit of cozy relaxation to keep the entire experience grounded and balanced.
For those who prefer a foot soak to a full bath soak there is Detox Foot Soak, which has a similar appeal. This soak also bases itself in USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin C crystals, and Vitamin E oil, but features essential oils of lemon, peppermint, frankincense, and lavender. The lemon oil in the blend is uplifting and zesty, just like in Detox Bath Soak, while peppermint provides cooling refreshment, lavender soothing relaxation, and frankincense an earthy grounding element to keep the whole blend well-balanced.
The Gift Of An All-Natural Bath
There are few better ways to say “I care” than giving the gift of self-care. A 2021 study found that 1/3 of Americans neglect self-care for as long as 3 months at a time. Self-care is an important part of self-preservation, and it’s an excellent way to make sure that everyday stresses aren’t allowed to build up over time. The gift of a bath is a reminder of the importance of self-care, and a way for gift givers to show useful appreciation to their giftees.
A Bath Salts Sampler Pack with 4 all-natural bath soaks is a gift for the experienced bather, the new bather, and every bather in between. The set comes complete with Detox Bath Soak, Stress Relief Bath Soak, Deep Relaxation Bath Soak, and Muscle Bath Soak – each focusing on all-natural ingredients perfect for any bath.
