What’s in Pure Indulgence Luxury Bath Soak?
I’ve taken gorgeous gluten free oats, local lavender petals (that I hand picked last summer and dried), local calendula petals (from my garden), dried jasmine, chamomile and orange blossom flowers and added a mix of organic cocoa and shea butters, plus organic evening primrose oil and then, as if that wasn’t enough, I’ve used five incredibly decadent essential oils which together make up a heady floral blend which will make your senses reel!
What essential oils have I used?
Primarily I’ve used Jasmine absolute because it is an absolutely beautiful oil which not only smells incredible but it is great for sensitive skin and it’s an anti-depressant and aphrodisiac too!*
Lavender essential oil is wonderful for all skin conditions but is very calming and relaxing. This product contains local lavender oil.
Rose absolute is great for dry, mature skin and helps to calm redness and irritated skin.*
Geranium essential oil relieves stress, calms inflamation and helps with general skin health – great for smoothing out wrinkles too!
Ylang ylang essential oil is beautifully calming, soothing and hydrating to the skin.
So, not only do the above five essential oils smell incredible together, they also work together to deliver an aromatherapy bathing experience that is second to none!
What else does Pure Indulgence Luxury Bath Soak contain?
I have added pure organic, unrefined cocoa and shea butters to the oats, plus organic, unrefined evening primrose oil as these oils and butters are just about the best you can get to deliver a great dose of moisture and decadence to your bath water.
How do you use it?
I can almost hear you saying “what about all those bits floating in the bath”? Anyone who knows me will know I can’t stand ‘bits’ floating around in the bath so this product comes with two muslin drawstring bags, one to use and a spare.
Simply give the product a stir or a shake to mix it as the contents may settle in the glass jar – just like museli when all the good bits end up at the bottom. Add 3-4 teaspoons (around 15g) to the muslin bag, tie it up to seal it and pop it in the bath as it’s running. Depending on your taps you could hang the bag from the tap.
As the water runs the oats will begin to turn the water milky and the essential oils, butters and oils will disperse into the water making it soft and soothing. Get in and let your cares simply melt away. The muslin bag full of mixture can be used to softly wash and soothe the skin. Very beneficial for the relief of the itching and soreness associated with dry skin, eczema or psoriasis. Depending on how long your bath is you could actually use the pouch twice!
If you didn’t want to use the muslin bag and wanted to add the product directly into your bath water that is absolutely fine but I would say to put something over your plug hole to catch all the bits as you empty the bath or it could get blocked up!
The glass jar contains 150g of product, enough for around 10 baths (20 if you use the pouch twice). Close lid after use to preserve the product and use within 6 months of opening to maximise the effectiveness of the essential oils.
I am now doing a single pouch trial size so you can try it to see if you like it before you commit to a full size jar.
Be aware that you will have some oils floating on the surface of the water. This is because I have used pure butters and oils and haven’t used any sulfates that bind with the oils to disperse them into the water – thus rendering them useless! This means that your skin will gain the full benefit of the oils and butters and you also won’t absorb any sulfates into your skin which can be irritating.
As with all bath and shower products take care of slips and trips in the bath.
