This is one pound of bath salts that are all freshly made when ordered, so please state whether you would like them with or without coloring when paying, if no preference is stated you will recieve them in their un-colored natural state which is white.
I use a blend of sea and epsom salts, skin softeners, and essential oils, and may include some ground, freshly dried herbs depending on their availability.
"Aromatic baths with Epsom salts or sea salts: Epsom salt baths are highly effective in aiding and supporting the body in detoxing. Epsom salts aid the elimination of waste material from the skin as well as reduce muscular aches and pains by aiding the elimination of uric acid build-up. Epsom salts support and enhance the bodies immune response by stimulating lymph and blood circulation." -quoted from the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy's website.
Peppermint has antiseptic properties and since the essential oil contains menthol which is also found in sports creams and chest rubs, when used in the bath the salts can also be useful for similar purposes. Menthol produces an immediate sensation of coolness which the body reacts to, producing a warming effect as blood flows.
Peppermint can be both energizing and soothing. At first cooling and bracing, then warming and comforting, the body and mind seem to benefit from the soothing warmth. The scent can help clear the head and also aid with nausea.
Peppermint is EXCELLENT for feet!!!! Peppermint bath salts help heal cracked feet, athlete's foot, and helps get rid of odor.
