Hello all! Today I am going to review an aroma bath salt from Soulflower. Here is a small info about what bath salts are.
The term bath salt refers to a range of water-soluble, usually inorganic solid products designed to be added to a bath. They are said to improve cleaning, improve the experience of bathing, and serve as a vehicle for cosmetic agents. Bath salts have been developed which mimic the properties of natural mineral baths or hot springs.
Such salts include:
I got a bath salt with lavender aroma, since lavender is famous for relieving stress. Here goes the review.

Soulflower says:  The best way to refresh you after a long tiring day. Simply adding this bath salt to your bath water calms & relaxes one’s mind & promotes a restful, uninterrupted night's sleep. Release pain & inflammation in joints & muscles. If you have a headache, close your eyes put a washcloth soaked in the Lavender Aroma Bath Salt water over your eyes and relax.

Ingredients: Lavender essential oil, Thai herbs, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Borate, Epsom Salts, Seasalts, Permitted Colourings.

  Directions to use: Add just 2 capfuls of Lavender Aroma Bath Salt in your warm bath for a well balanced nutrition & moisture for the skin. Or dip a towel in a tub of bath salts & hot water & place over aching muscles.

My experience: This bath salt has a beautiful lavender color which is pleasing to the eyes. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a black screw cap. Also the aroma is of natural lavender and nothing synthetic. I was waiting for the right opportunity to try this, since it claims to calm down the mind and eases the body and joint pain. Two weeks back, I had to indulge in a lot of physical activity such as running up and down the construction site (no lift :( ) for an inspection and getting approvals (FYI I am a civil engineer) and ended up with back, thigh and joint pain.

 I had a good night’s sleep, thinking that all that I need to make my pain vanish was sleep, but I was wrong! Next morning I had the same intensity of pain. So I took this bottle with me into the shower, added two caps full of salt into a bucket of hot water and stirred with my hands. The water turned into a beautiful shade of lavender and I as usual I had bath with that water.

The experience was really very relaxing. After shower nothing magical happened, but my body was good enough to get ready to office. I haven’t tried this for headache though. So can’t comment on that. But for a soothing, calming and relaxing bath experience, this is awesome!
Price : Rs.350 for 400 gms

The good:
1.       Looks pleasant.
2.       Smells of natural lavender.
3.       Gets quickly dissolved in water.
4.       Relaxes every muscle and joints while bathing.
5.       Also lessens internal body pain (nothing phenomenal, but eases the pain a bit)
6.       Can also be used as a foot soak for DIY pedicure.
7.       Huge bottle which lasts for 2 months if used once every week.
The not so good:
1.       Available only through online websites.
I could not find any other cons.
Final word: I rate this 4.8/5. It is a good way to combat stress!
