Bath Bombs and Bath Salts: similar names, different ingredients
Popular bath mixes and colorful, scented, fizzy bath bombs unfortunately often contain inexpensive ingredients or fillers that are not beneficial to your skin. For example, baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), typically the number one ingredient in a bath bomb, has anti-inflammatory properties, but dries the skin out. Many have artificial colors or food dyes that can potentially be absorbed into the body as well. Glitter in bath bombs can be exciting and Instagrammable, but is not good for the environment or your drain. In general, some of the ingredients can be irritating to the skin, especially the fragrances and dyes that are added.
If you are going to take time for a bath, why not use something that is good for your skin and body too, right? In comparison to bath bombs, bath salts are much more beneficial to the body and skin. Bath salts have been used for hundreds of years to ease all kinds of aches and pains. Bath salts are an easy way to help aid mental and physical health. Several health benefits of using bath salts include helping people with muscle pain and stiffness, arthritis, stiff and aching joints, headaches, anxiety, stress, dry and itchy skin, circulation, relaxing the mind, skin conditions like eczema, and pulling toxins from pores.
Overt Organics Jet Set Bath Soak
The proprietary formulation of bath salts in our Overt Organics Jet Set Bath Soak contains Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (CBD), OptiMSM (Sulfur) and other beneficial minerals and nutrients that will improve your skin’s radiance, tone, and texture. As a well-known anti-inflammatory, CBD has the ability to help with muscular tension, stiff joints, and other related pains. CBD is also an antioxidant, so it can help skin to retain its youthful appearance by fighting the signs of aging and increasing elasticity.
Jet Set Bath Soak is also made with rose petal essential oil, Pacific Sea Salt, and Epsom Salt. All Epsom salts have minerals of magnesium and sulphates in them, which are important nutrients that our body needs to function. Many people are deficient in these because they are poorly absorbed through our food. Fortunately, these minerals are more easily absorbed through the skin, such as through a bath, when used in combination with OptiMSM. The minerals in a detox bath can assist in removing toxins from the body to improve your health. Our bath salts overall help detoxify your skin. The warm water of the bath will open your pores and allow the minerals in the bath salts to deeply cleanse your skin. Bathing in a solution of warm water and bath salts will work to draw out impurities, pollution, toxins, oil, dirt and sweat from the skin as well as increase blood circulation.
A nice, lengthy, warm bath can be just what we need to feel better when we are feeling stressed or tired. The anti-anxiety and stress properties of CBD in a bath can be effective in helping us relax after a long day.
Bath salts benefit not only our skin, but our entire bodies – from the inside out.
