I have to say, these Therapie bath salts are amazing! Where to begin . . . Well, firstly, I am a very light sleeper plus I have difficulty sleeping in on the weekends. My bed routine involves a lot of rituals to help me unwind and get a good nights sleep . . . Lavender oil which is diffused in my ceramic oil burner, peaceful music, a gentle yoga session, a dose of Tranquility drops.
On a Sunday evening, I skipped all these routines as I have heard so much about the Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts (created by Aromatherapist Michelle Roques O'Neil who was voted by Vogue as one of the top 10 Aromatherapists in the world) and I wanted to test these out without relying on all my other sleeping strategies. When you open the jar, the scent is heavenly, very 'Spa-like' (hints of this still lingered in the bathroom the following morning), with ingredients of aromatherapeutic essential oils (Geranium, Rosewood, Patchouli, Lavender, Juniper Berry, Lemongrass and Grapefruit), powdered Amethyst and Himalayan Salts. This combination of ingredients helps your body to rebalance, eliminate toxins and counteracts the electro-magnetic energy we recieve from mobiles and computers.
After about 10 minutes lying in the bath I felt myself starting to really let go. I later crawled into bed with my book and it was then that I felt this real sense of cosiness and comfort, almost as if I had spent an entire day at the beach, or that pleasant exhaustion after a Yoga session. After reading and re-reading the same paragraph over and over, I went into this blissfull heavy slumber, slept through the whole night and even slept through the alarm!?! That evening I had the BEST sleep I have had in a long time. I have used these bath salts a few times since and they have delivered each time the same wonderful effect.
The Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts (which won the Beauty Shortlist Awards for 2013) are perfect in times of stress, if you are feeling out of balance or just to unwind and have a deep restful sleep. They are also ideal for insomniacs or for those who work in an environment where there is constant exposure to cellphones and computers. I recommend having a bath with these only a few times a week (no more than three) or in the weekend when you don't have a huge workload the following day (my whole body rhythm slowed down the next day - a good thing . . . but a little more challenging with a day booked back-to-back of doing facials).
