My latest addiction has been buying some very unique, handmade botanical bath salts on Etsy. I don’t know about you, but I just love, love, love to run a nice bubble bath and add some amazing scents to it like lavender, rose, or vanilla. But I recently discovered these botanical bath salts which also contain dried botanicals like rose petals and lavender buds, as well as some skin loving oils like vitamin A and jojoba oil. Ah, so dreamy! And so I thought I would share some of my findings with you so next time you feel inspired to buy something truly worthy of your Friday night "me time" you will consider some of these amazing bath salts on Etsy.
1. Andaloo Home + Bath + Body
These are by far my favorite bath salts on Etsy! The Andaloo bath salts are simply dreamy and they are made for the modern young woman who loves her body and wants to treat herself to an evening of luxury at home! Their Home Spa In A Jar concept brings you a luxurious and mineral-rich blend of Dead Sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, Hiwa Kai Black Lava Salt and Epsom salts, which is then topped with dried botanicals like rose petals, lavender buds, marigold flowers, and kaolin clays.
2. Barefoot Apothecary
Barefoot Apothecary has some great bath salts options that come packaged in super cute glass vials with cork lids. These vials contain sample size luxurious botanical blends of detoxifying scented bath salts. They are formulated to be clarifying, healing and rejuvenating, as well as aromatic and therapeutic, with just a touch of nourishing oils. And did I mention that all their salts blends are organic, vegan and free of chemicals? You’re welcome.
3. Wild Botanicals
If I were to pick my favorite bath salts from Wild Botanicals I think I would go with their Lemongrass Rose salts. It is a simple but effective blend of salts and essential oils designed to relax the mind and detox the body at the end of work week. These bath salts come in a four ounce glass jar of an all natural luxurious blend of pink Himalayan, Dead Sea, and Epsom salts with the citrus and floral aroma of lemongrass and rose essential oils.
4. Little Flower Soap Co
Their pink grapefruit detox bath salt sounds amazing! Pink grapefruit oil is known to be not only a cleansing and revitalizing oil, but its bright aroma helps energize and uplift the spirit. They also use pink Himalayan mineral salt which is very high in minerals and trace elements, some of the most notable being calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. When added to your bath water the Himalayan salts help relax the body, stimulate circulation, sooth sore muscles, and remove toxins.
This is a very simple blend yet a great choice for lavender lovers and those who search organic products. Lavender essential oil is believed to help calms tired muscles, relax your mind, and be beneficial to those with high blood pressure, for sunburns, sleeping troubles, and nervousness. Herbolution uses Dead Sea salt in their blend which is high in mineral content and said to help with skin problems like acne and eczema.
6. Herbivore Botanicals
Herbivore Botanicals offers this really cute bath set of three Dead Sea salts which makes a great girlfriend gift! These bath salts are all natural and vegan, and contain Dead Sea salt, a blend of essential oils and/or herbs, depending on the product variation. They come in cute ten ounce glass jars and in the following variations: Renew Bath Salts, Detox Bath Salts, and Calm Bath Salts.
7. Just the Goods
Their new herbal spa bath salts aim to draw impurities from your skin while conditioning your bath water with Epsom salt and dead sea salt, and infusing your water with fragrant essential oils and natural botanicals for an aromatherapy experience. You have the choice of picking your favorite variation which vary from Fresh to Warm to Love. They also offer an unscented variation which is great for those with allergies.
8. The Living Earth Botanicals
This floral bath tea is a relaxing blend of lavender, marjoram, patchouli, mandarin, geranium and chamomile essential oils aimed at helping you calm the mind, open the heart, and lift the spirits. The essential oils are diffused by a bed of Himalayan pink salt and further enhanced by dried rose petals.
9. Soapy Layne
Soapy Layne makes a great bath soak by mixing coconut milk powder, pink Himalayan sea salts and natural herbal ingredients such as organic sunflower petals, chamomile flowers, jasmine petals, lavender flowers and red rose petals. The blend is then topped with geranium rose essential oil which has a sweet and rosy smell with a mint overtone and it is said to have a balancing effect on the nervous system and to relieve depression and anxiety, while lifting the spirits.
Pretty amazing, aren’t they? I love my alone time and if I have a Friday night where I don’t have to be somewhere or meet someone I just light a patchouli candle in my bathroom, run a warm bath, add a handful of my favorite botanical bath salts and give my body and mind the break they deserve while letting the salts and essential oils do their magic. What are some of your favorite scents for bath salts?
