Verdant Alchemy Drift Off Bath Salts

The best day of the week as far as I am concerned is Sunday, also known as ME day to anyone who follows me on Instagram.  The one day of the week that I take an hour or two out to have some 'me' time and it usually revolves around a long hot soak, a face and hair mask.  If I find it relaxing them I am using it.

One item I am always happy to claim as being underrated are bath salts and I have said it numerous times within blog posts.  The recent addition to my bathroom comes from Verdant Alchemy and until now, I had never come across them.

The brand focuses on creating products that aren’t simply relaxing, but also beneficial to the body.  With that in mind, I was kindly sent the Drift Off Mineral Bath Salts which are designed to calm your mind and help you drift off.  I often find myself waking up in the middle of the night, then I can never drift off to sleep, so I am always keen to try and find products that ensure I get 5-6 hours sleep without resorting to medication.  Drift Away is one of those products you can smell before you open the box and it is just lovely.

What I love about these salts is the ingredients and of course how I feel after using them as well as the bathing experience too.  With a whole host of key ingredients, such as Epsom and Dead Sea Salts which host entirely different, many amazing properties and they work alongside some incredible essential oils too.  This is what you will find:
  • Epsom Salt - Known for having a high content of magnesium, a mineral that helps the body maintain healthy muscle and nerve functions, it also helps to alleviate everyday stresses such as anxiety. A relaxing Epsom salt bath will help to replenish magnesium levels and fuel our body to ease inflammation, improve sleep and concentration, and help muscles recover after exercise.
  • Dead Sea Salt - This is one of my favourite bath salt ingredients because not only it is known for its therapeutic properties, but it also contains 21 minerals which include magnesium, calcium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and bromide. All of these minerals help the body by promoting healing, balance and relaxation while recharging and promoting natural skin health. Soaking in Dead Sea salts are also known to work wonders for dry skin ailments.
  • White Kaolin Clay - Used within a product such as this, the clay works as a mild detoxifier that helps to stimulate circulation and purify the skin, allowing the body to eliminate toxins naturally.
  • Lavender - One of my favourite products in relaxing products and known as one of the worlds most versatile essential oils. It is described as being a natural relaxant which helps to calm your mind and aid sleep.
  • Mandarin - A warm, slightly sweet citrus note that also helps to calm and relax as well as helping to reduce anxiety and promote sleep.
  • Patchouli - This has more of a musky fragrance to give that earthy scent but at the same time it helps to uplift the mood and stimulate circulation. Known for its soothing and calming properties to help the mind to induce a restorative sleep. 
  • Vetiver - Another of my favourite ingredients in products like this and one with a beautiful woody note too it.  Proven to relieve anxiety and promote relaxation and sleep.
As soon as the lid is removed from the tub of bath salts, the scent comes to life and it is one which is immediately relaxing.  

When using products like this, I always follow the advice given and that is to ensure I drink plenty of water before and after to prevent dehydration.  Once the water within the bath is running, I take a scoop of bath salts and allow the steam vapour to capture the scent of the oils as the salts dissolve into the water.  An incredibly relaxing experience and one which really does help to calm and destress making them perfect for use in an evening or later afternoon if you have had a stressful working week.  Priced at just £12 for 100g and £26 for 250g you can find these salts online via Verdant Alchemy and Wolf and Badger.
