Okay, so obviously as a holistic beauty and well-being website you’ve come to expect that a lot of what you read here will tie into overall well-being in one way or another, especially as I believe that conscious beauty encompasses everything that we do to look and feel our best. After all we all need a wellbeing boost from time to time. So as you can imagine I am always really impressed when brands develop products or formulas that tap into creating mindful moments. That is the case with Westlab and the launch of their four new bath salts, a welcome addition to the well-being range. The new salts are named Mindful, Sleep, Recover and Cleanse…perfect for every mood.
I’ve known Westlab for their regular therapeutic bath salts – you know, the usual Epsom salts magnesium salts, dead sea salts and the like which are really effective. I was really excited to hear that they were taking their bath salt excellence one step further with these new formulas. Each of these new formulas responds to our various well-being needs so much so that you really need to buy all four of them to add to your well-being toolkit.
Fact: a 15 to 20 minute soak in a bath of salts aids our ability to de-stress and can encourage enough relaxation for a restful night. So imagine those salts enhanced by the addition of natures own wellbeing boosting ingredients – pure magic.
