EPSOM SALT (MAGNESIUM SULFATE)
Magnesium is found in abundance in the body and can be purchased both as a dietary supplement and also for therapeutic use in soaking salts. We use USP (pharmaceutical grade) epsom salt in our bath salts to guarantee the highest quality, purity, and potency. Magnesium can support circulation, ease sore muscles, help to relieve minor aches and pains/swelling/tension/restlessness and promote relaxation of the mind and body. Soaking for a minimum of 15 minutes will help the body absorb more magnesium for greater benefit.
SEA SALT (SODIUM CHLORIDE)
We use the highest quality food grade Pacific sea salt from the California coat. Sea salt softens the water, and thus helps to soften the skin while cleansing, and detoxifying. Sea salt also supports minor aches and pains, promotes circulation, calms irritation, and is especially beneficial for dry and/or itchy skin.
COLLOIDAL OAT NON-GMO (AVENA SATIVA)
Colloidal oats (finely ground) have a long history of use for supporting dry, irritated and inflamed or itchy skin. The soothing property of the oat supports a myriad of skin-related issues. Oats contain saponins, a compound with natural cleansing abilities. Saponins combined with naturally occurring zinc in oats are supportive for congested and breakout prone skin, helping to unclog pores, calm and heal. Oats also contain polysaccharides which have humectant-like properties, binding to the acid mantel of the skin to further create a protective barrier. Carbohydrates and proteins in the oat help to moisturize while lipids and flavonoids have antioxidant capability. The colloidal oats in our vetiver and bergamot mineral bath soak easily dissolve in the water and permeate the body, soothing dry skin and gently exfoliating to remove dead skin cells, reduce dry skin and help to restore pH. Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of colloidal oats in supporting skin conditions such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
ORGANIC VETIVER ESSENTIAL OIL (VETIVERIA ZIZANIOIDES)
Our vetiver essential oil is steam distilled from the vetiver roots. Vetiver is an incredibly hardy and adaptive tall growing grass native to India with a long history of use in perfumery due to its fixative properties. Vetiver has a strong root system (6-13 feet deep) that helps to reduce soil loss, stabilize steep banks, and secure topsoil. Vetiver has a sweet, earthy, herbaceous, warm and woody aroma and is deeply relaxing, grounding, and balancing.
ORGANIC BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OIL (CITRUS BERGAMIA)
Our bergamot essential oil is extracted from the fruit using the cold expression method. The Bergamot citrus tree is named after the small town of Bergamo in Northern Italy where it was "discovered" and cultivated; however, many say bergamot is native to India and called "The King of Pears" because of its shape. Bergamot is an extremely versatile essential oil. It's relaxing, calming, uplifting and has a delightfully citrusy, fresh, woodsy, and slightly floral scent with spicy undertones.
