Sea salt and petals

I don’t know about you, but I love my “me time” enjoying a luxurious bath.

Here are some ways to make the perfect bath:

  • Bath Salts:  Soothe muscles with Dead Sea & Bali Reef salts, plus wash away tension with powerful aromatherapy properties found in Hothouse Botanicals’ Aromatherapy Bath Salts ($18). They are available in Bergamot/Ylang Ylang (exhilarating and inspiring), Bourbon Geranium (stress relieving), Lavandin/Litsea Cubeba (relaxing and uplifting), and Vanilla/Lime (comforting and refreshing). Or, if you prefer a bubble bath, try Hothouse Botanicals’ Fizzy Foaming Baths ($18) available in the same aromatherapy scents with Dead Sea salts, plus organic grapeseed oil to moisturize your skin.
  • Exfoliate: This is the key to softer, healthier, and more radiant skin. Use our Whipped Sugar Scrub ($16) in our signature aromatherapy scents to pamper your skin with organic ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil,  and get it ready to take on the skin-baring months during spring and summer.
  • Cleanse:  Wash the daily grind away with our Organic Soaps ($5), in aromatherapy scents like Lotus Blossom, Bergamot/Ylang Ylang (an orange floral spice), and Lavandin/Litsea Cubeba (lavender lemon).
  • Decompress:  Listen to waves lapping a tropical sand beach or spa music, immerse yourself in the warm water, close your eyes, and find yourself in a wonderfully relaxed state of mind.

In the past sugar was known as “white gold,” because it was a rare and expensive commodity. Sugar is a popular ingredient in skin care products today because it:

• acts as a natural exfoliator
• does not clog pores
• helps eliminate blemishes
• restores balance to skin’s oils

Sugar contains glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that is crucial for maintaining healthy skin.  The natural glycolic acid in sugar not only helps condition and moisturize skin, but protect it from toxins.

To make our Whipped Sugar Scrubs, we use pure cane sugar (raw sugar) that is made from clarified cane juice boiled down to a crystalline solid. We do not use the less expensive white sugar, because bone char is used to make it white in color and it is not vegan.

When you regularly exfoliate your skin with a sugar scrub, it becomes healthier in appearance and function.  After dead skin has been exfoliated, your body’s largest organ works more efficiently to expel toxins and take in nourishment.  Skin becomes more uniform in appearance, is softer to touch, and has a radiant glow.  Sugar scrubs are also gentler, less dehydrating than salt scrubs and be used by all skin types.
