I love baths. I also don’t have them that often though as I don’t like our bathtub. It’s a pretty narrow tub making it a bit of a pain to squeeze into but once you’re in it it’s fine. Therefore when I have a bath I like to make it worth my while. This is where the lovely Kiss The Moon Bath Salts * come in.
Kiss The Moon are a brand that specialise in products to help you have a good nights sleep. They are based in the English countryside and use the most natural ingredients to create luxurious products. The brand was founded by Jo Foster when she needed to get her sleep back on track after her life becoming full of deadlines and flights. They don’t use parabens, artificial perfumes or chemicals in their products and are 100% natural.
I have been trying out the Dream Bedtime Bath Salts * over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been taking a bath before bed, usually on a Sunday in order to relax before the busy working week and using the Lavender scented salts to create a dreamy bathtime (pun intended!). As these are salts they don’t create bubbles in the bath so you will need to add bubble bath if you’re that way inclined, but for me the salts are enough on their own. They are a base of Epsom salt and Dead Sea salt and then gorgeous oils such as Coconut Oil, Bergamot Oil, Lavender Oil and Cedarwood Oil have been added too. The combination creates such a relaxing scent that really gets me ready for bedtime. I love the smell of Lavender anyway but the mixture of Cedarwood and Bergamot give it a lovely earthy background too. The main thing I love about these salts is that they fully dissolve in the water and you don’t have to sit on uncomfortable salts for your entire bath.
The mineral rich salts are a natural source of magnesium which helps the body to make serotonin – very useful in helping muscles to relax and contributing to happiness and wellbeing. Lavender Oil helps to balance the skins own oil production and encourage new cell growth and Coconut Seed Oil helps to nourish and moisturise the skin. All whilst you relax and forget about the day – I like to read a book or watch YouTube videos personally, as it really helps my mind to switch off. Once I’m wrinkled enough I get out and dry off and my skin is already so smooth that I don’t even need to apply a body lotion, which means I usually fall straight into bed and straight to sleep. The mixture of oils makes my skin so soft and supple that it still feels lovely the next day too. I also love to use these after a gym session as I find that it helps my muscles to really relax.
I think it’s so important to make time for self care and I’ve been feeling so much better since I’ve been using these bath salts before bed. I love Kiss The Moon’s idea of focusing on relaxing products to encourage sleep, as I think a good night’s sleep is something that isn’t a priority to most people anymore. We tend to forget that our body does the majority of it’s healing and cell regeneration whilst we sleep and that’s so important for good skin (and a healthy body too!). We can use lotions and potions all day, but the one of the best things for great skin is sleep. Kiss The Moon have already discovered that and I love that they are instilling that in their customers too.
