I have been exploring this world of bath salts for a few months now since I started development for these. Today I want to share with you three different ways to enjoy your bath salts. Some of these recommendations have come from some amazing customers (thank you!).
First step: You can get your Lilasuds Bath Salts at the shop. They're all made with soothing Epsom salts, pink Himalayan salt, coarse dead sea salts, clays, and luscious scents that will surely relax your body into bliss.
There are three permanent scents to enjoy:
Draw yourself a bath!
The most straightforward way to use your bath salts is in a bath. Fill your tub with warm water (not too hot, but just enough). Sprinkle a handful of your salts into the tub and let them dissolve. I recommend soaking yourself for a minimum of 20 minutes to let the salts do their magic. The clay in the salts softens your bath water. Ideally, put on some chill music and a big glass of your favorite wine.
Not a bath person, or simply don't have a tub in your place? No worries! Nothing like a warm foot soak for your tired feet at the end of the day. Just fill up a bucket with warm-hot water and a few teaspoons of bath salts. Keep soaking for at least 20 minutes and enjoy. This is perfect before giving yourself a home pedicure to soften up your skin and relax your foot muscles. It's also great for winding down after a long day on your feet. Feel free to add a dash of your favorite oil to add extra nourishment to your feet.
This idea was actually recommended by a brilliant customer. You can turn your bath salts into an exfoliating salt scrub. If preferred, grind down a bit of the larger salt chunks. Add a tablespoon or two of your favorite carrier oil to 2-3 teaspoons of bath salts. A little oil goes a long way. This part is important since you'll be putting the bath salts direct onto your skin. You will need to dilute the essential oils in the bath salts with a carrier oil. I recommend low comedogenic oils (meaning they won't clog your pores) like argan, almond, avocado, jojoba, hemp seed, or sunflower. Mix until you make a salty paste. Just gently scrub onto your skin in circular motions and rinse off once done. Pat dry et voila! The salt helps exfoliate while the oils are nourishing and conditioning on your skin.
And there you have it! Three ways to make the most out of your bath salts.
Tips to Keep Your Bath Salts
To make sure your bath salts last the longest, keep them in a very dry, cool area (I actually recommend to keep them outside of your bathroom). Remember, salt attracts moisture so keep that lid on tight and open only when you're going to use some.
If you notice some of the salts have melted, don't worry. Just give your salts a good shake before use to re-distribute all the oils in the bottle. Summer heat can be tricky!
Enjoy, and honor yourself!
