Orange and Rose Bath Salts
Homemade self care products can be simple and nourishing at once. Made from just four ingredients, these orange and rose bath salts calm and soothe skin, moisturise whilst detoxing and relax and uplift with their fresh floral fragrance as they reduce inflammation, clear congestion and boost collagen production.
Rich in fatty acids, castor oil is highly moisturising, anti inflammatory, antimicrobial, stimulates production of collagen and elastin, supports healing, evens skin tone and increases absorption of other ingredients.
Originally sourced from natural spas in Epsom and now created by combining magnesium and sulfate, Epsom salt is renowned for its detoxification and relaxation effects.
Rose petals contain soothing anti inflammatory properties and moisturising and hydrating oils, are antioxidant rich, boost collagen production, heal blemishes and scarring and their fragrance calms, relaxes and uplifts.
