Ritual Bath Salts To Soak Away Winter Blues
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects 6-14% of our population. I spent the first 34 years of my life living in Florida! So this Florida gal sometimes finds herself struggling with long Canadian winters! After 6-7 years of living in Ottawa, I began to feel the effects of a cold winter. One of my favourite self care rituals is an aromatic bath before bedtime. I find it will greatly enhance my sleep and provide a psychologically rejuvenating experience. As light is very important in combating SAD, you may wish to use candles for atmosphere while leaving the lights on. Finish the preparation of your bath with essential oils and Himalayan salts.
Pink Himalayan Rock Salt is hand-mined and harvested from ancient salt beds, deep under the Himalayan Mountains. Known to be rich in over 80 minerals and trace elements, some of the most notable being calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, this salt is considered to be the purest form of salt available.
For therapeutic purposes, the Himalayan Salt is used in baths to promote relaxation of the body, and for its emotionally balancing and energizing effects.
Add 5-10 drops of essential oil & 1 tbsp of coconut oil to salts and blend.
