Bath bombs have become all the rage, from glittery explosions of sweet scents to ones with goodies stashed inside, we love a good and fun bath time! The obsession with these bath time treats has always perplexed me, while I love to take some time out to chill and treat myself, it seemed to me like we had a real missed opportunity on our hands. A fun colored bath is one thing, but as a trained herbalist I am also aware of the power of the herbal bath, that by using herbs we can treat hundreds of conditions and have been for thousands of years. I wanted to take this self care ritual of a decadent bath to the next level, with quality ingredients in an amount that could actually produce a therapeutic effect. In Chinese Medicine we have been using the herbal bath for thousands of years, but in our modern day sourcing these herbs - in the right amounts, is time consuming and can cause some gunking up of the tub, in short it’s not very convenient at all. This is where my Chinese Medicinal Herbal Fizzing Bath Salts come into play!
Formulated to include the equivalent of 100 grams of raw herbs per bath, in the form of concentrated herbal granules, these bath salts aren’t just relaxing, they are healing throughout the senses, body, mind and the spirit. Each bath salt packet contains a formula of herbal granules which dissolve in warm water, essential oils, coconut oil, and a skin healing base of epsom salts, baking soda, citric acid and depending on the formula types of nourishing clay and mustard powder.
