Stress, check. Sleepless nights, check. A solution? Work in progress… I generally am not a person who takes baths (I love my showers), but Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts have kinda converted me. Claimed to be the “natural version of Valium”, it’s a great way to winddown from a long and stressful way and just breathe.
It contains Himalayan Mineral Salts, powdered Amethyst and a blend of essential oils of Lemongrass, Juniper and Geranium. The salt crystals are pink (I know!) and are supposed to balance your pH levels and aid your body to establish equilibrium. It also has blood purifying and anti-inflammatory properties and I do feel really relaxed afterwards.
This is definitely saved for a pamper day, as it’s far too expensive to use on a daily basis (for me at least). What I do love, is to add a nice scoop of bath salts in a tub and have a foot bath. It helps me fall asleep and apparently foot baths aid to detoxify the body. I wouldn’t say this is a foolproof way to fall asleep, especially among us insomniacs, but it definitely has helped me winddown and relax a bit. Maybe it’s the relaxing aroma or maybe it’s just the myths behind the Himalayan Salts. I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’ll definitely continue using them.
