Let's face it, as busy mamas we are may sometimes find ourselves constantly on the run, and can sometimes feel as though we have no time for ourselves, right? I know that is true for me, especially now that my son is almost a two-year-old! We are constantly on the go and tired in these summer months, but I love every second of it.
At the end of the day, I love taking a nice hot bath to relax and detox. It is my escape and way to recover. This is a great way to soak and give my muscles what I need after chasing my toddler around all day.
I love that Be Pure Beauty offers a custom bath salt bar in their storefront, as well as their own in-house blend of salts designed specifically to help sore, tired muscles recuperate from exertion: Recover.
The benefits of creating your own custom blend of bath salts are many. You can tailor the proportions and types of salt to your exact needs and preferences, depending on the purpose of your bath. Are you aiming to detox, relax, de-stress, or all of the above? In any case, you can find the perfect combination for you from the list of natural, healing elements below:
This custom bath salt bar features Dead Sea salt, which is rich with essential minerals potassium, calcium, and magnesium. It leaves the skin with a healthy glow, while allowing the body a soothing, calming treatment during your warm soak.
Another key salt featured is Himalayan salt, which helps to soothe sore muscle aches and cramps. It can also reduce inflammation and aids the healing process of cuts and wounds.
They also have Magnesium salt, which promotes stress relief and relaxation. It also helps loosen tense muscles and acts as a safe and natural sleep aid, perfect for ending a long, stressful day with an extra dose of relaxation and calm.
In addition to the foundational salts in this custom bar, there are also a variety of dried flowers for added adornment and scent, including dried chamomile, rose, and lavender. These elements add beautiful floral scents and calming effects to any custom bath salt mixture.
The finished product of these custom bath salt jars is so pretty and makes a thoughtful, affordable gift for anyone, especially busy mamas!
Whether you're a busy mama like Susie, a hardworking student, a bustling business owner or employee, or all of the above - we definitely agree that taking time for a refreshing, detoxifying soak at least a couple of evenings a week can reap major benefits for your mood, energy levels and sense of well-being.
