I’ve said this before and I will say it again. I love bath salts that help you relax and get rid of the tiredness and the fatigue. And I love bath salts more when hey double up as a foot soak that not only help relax those tired feet but also end up making them fragrant. I discovered this brand when I was doing a search for natural products In India.
Bath Etc has an awesome collection of scrubs, soaps, candles, essential oils and moisturising bars. If you are looking at a particular fragrance that you love, you just need to let the owner know and if you are lucky enough she may just create a customised product for you!
At the first glance the products seemed interesting and I ordered for a couple of products that I did not blog about. This bottle of bath salt was picked up when I was in Mumbai and happened to attend one of the numerous exhibitions.
I prefer using this one as a bath salt as well as a foot soak, more on the latter because I love the way it leaves my feet so relaxed, soft and of course fragrant.
The first fragrance that you get is of mint, which is pretty strong. It overpowers the fragrance of rosemary. The salt gets dissolved easily and works well on exfoliating the dead skin. In fact it acts like a good skin polish that leaves you smelling minty and fresh. I loved this is the summers. It was a perfect option to smell nice and fragrant.
If you are using this as a body scrub, you will need about a tablespoon and a half. It is sufficient to cleanse the body. When I use it as a foot soak, I use about 3 tablespoons and mix it with as hot water as I can bear. I soak my feet for about 15 minutes and it relaxes you completely.
The packaging as you see is not a travel friendly one. It is a bulky glass jar with a lid that is slightly loose. Even if it was tight, the jar is too bulky to even fit in your toiletries bag.
Priced at INR 650, this 300 gm jar of the refreshing bath salt is available on their online store. The owner of the brands participates in a number of exhibitions in Mumbai, so just follow her on Facebook to keep a track of her exhibitions. My only fight with her is that she ignores the neighboring cities! If you want to just browse through her store, click here. The cart value is on the higher side if you want to avail the free shipping. You need to buy for a minimum of INR 2500 to avail the free shipping.
While I love the product, I would like to try the other salts before I settle on what I like the best. She has loads of bath salts aavilable, so I will try some of the other interesting fragrances for now.
