Baths can be enjoyed for a variety of uses – to relax, uplift, energise, detoxify and stimulate – depending on (but not limited to) the following factors:
How you create the environment in your bathroom – the essential oil blends that you can infuse in to the air via an oil burner; dimming the lights, creating a private space that has no noise or interruptions so that you can quieten your mind, or soft music to relax to.
What you place in the bath – whether that be uplifting, invigorating or calming essential oils, detoxifying clays, energising and energy-clearing salts.
How you be whilst soaking in the bath – My favourite bath ritual is to to spend 15 minutes focusing on my breathing. With every inhale, I breathe in thoughts of relaxation and pure organic botanical scents, and with every exhale I breathe out any worries or stress.
Bathing at certain times of the moon is also effective. Bathing during a full moon with help your body to absorb the most minerals as this is when your body’s absorption potential is at its peak. As an alternative, the body’s capacity to detoxify is at its peak during a new moon, and therefore is the optimal time to enjoy a cleansing / detoxifying bath.

Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 16+ years of industry experience. If we are not 100% convinced that an ingredient is safe, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic and harmful ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
