Naturally Harvested Epsom Salts

Epsom salt or magnesium sulphate, is named after a saline spring in the town of Epsom in Surrey, England where the salt was once sourced. It is not actually a salt but a naturally occurring mineral compound.

When Epsom Salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions. These particles are absorbed through your skin, replenishing needed nutrients, softening and hydrating it.

Argile Green Clay

Throughout history clay has been used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It is a powerful agent for healing and has been used since ancient times in Egypt, Greece, and Rome to treat a variety of skin problems and digestive disorders.

French green clay belongs to a subcategory of clay minerals known as illite clays. The clay’s green colour comes from a combination of iron oxides and decomposed plant matter, mostly kelp seaweed and other algae.

Can I use a Bath Soak in the shower?

These delicious blends are for the bath or foot bath only as they don’t lather and need the warm water to infuse into.

Yes. Each mineral Bath Soak has a base of four different types of sea salts from across the globe, known for their revitalising benefits of the body including Celtic Sea Salt crystals, Dead Sea Salts, Natural Epsom Salts and Magnesium Chloride Flakes.

We recommend using 1/2 cup or 80g for a foot soak or in your daily bath. If you’re wanting a full body therapeutic treatment then we recommend doubly that to 1 cup or 160g.
