I’m not a fan of the cold-weather season. It’s now that time of year when I long to have a warm soak in the bath. Life gets hectic and as a busy mum I have to make a conscious effort to relax and unwind.
So I’m making it a priority to set some time aside for a long soak in the bath at least twice a week. This is an excellent way for me to de-stress and relax my mind and body, which is hugely beneficial to my overall well-being. This is also the only time I can simply switch off and enjoy some peace and quiet.
Incorporating bath salts are an essential part of my weekly bath routine. There’s nothing more satisfying than a soothing soak in the bath at the end of a long day and putting on some cosy pyjamas and socks afterwards.
I’m a huge fan of Westlab and always stock up on their bath salts. Right now I’m loving their Alchemy range of bathing salts which are designed to induce sleep, help the body to recover, cleanse and restore mindfulness.
These formulas incorporate proven healing extracts such as CBD Oil, Valerian, Seaweed and Arnica.
