One of the oldest, most beneficial and pleasant holistic healing methods is soaking your body in a warm bath filled with salts, oils, flowers and herbs. The Healing Rose Company from Newburyport, Mass. just released a new line of CBD bath soaks featuring phytocannabinoid-rich CBD hemp oil and high-quality ingredients such as French gray salt and non-GMO Vitamin E. The Healing Rose is an MDAR-licensed hemp processor specializing in lip balms and full/broad spectrum extracts. They recently won the 2020 NECANN “Best Topical” for their Lemon Ginger Salve.
French Gray Salt | Golden Jojoba Oil | Organic Patchouli
The gray coloring of this fine sandy salt conveys an expensive and luxurious feeling. When added to warm bath water, the smell is smooth and earthy with patchouli being most noticeable. The oils in the bath soak make your skin feel slick and shiny – rehydrating dull and lifeless epidermis on the knees, shins and elbows.
Fortify and Renew
Epsom Salt | Organic Blood Orange and Lime Oil | Organic Black Pepper Oil
If you’re looking for a tropical citrus vacation in your own bathtub – look no further. The smell of these salts is phenomenal and strong as soon as you open the bag. These large glassy Epsom salts are reminiscent of crystals glistening when you put them in the bath water. Lime is the predominant smell here. Black pepper oil is said to be a great antibacterial agent that eliminates impurities, toxins and bacteria from the surface of the pores – and my body was definitely glowing after this bath salt, even receiving a compliment on my skin tone.
Dead Sea Salt | Organic Atlas Cedarwood Oil | Eucalyptus Oil
Water from the Dead Sea contains minerals such as magnesium, bromide and sodium that are thought to draw out toxins and exfoliate to expose fresh layers of skin. These salts are quite coarse in contrast to the finer salts in Hippie’s Hideaway. I decided to use them as a scrub while also in the bath, so I combined them with my favorite face wash. The herbal smell was pleasant and subtle. The exfoliating qualities worked perfectly as my open pores absorbed the lotion nicely, and I could still smell the eucalyptus from the salts – both pleasant and calming.
Relax and Unwind
Pink Himalaya Salt | Organic Geranium Oil
Pink and flowery, this bath soak is everything sugary and sweet that a girl like me could want. I used my favorite rose-scented candle while in this luxurious bath, which only added to the springtime vibes. This bag also contains organic clary sage oil and organic frankincense oil, which play nicely as background scents bringing everything together.
Epsom Salt | Organic Unrefined Golden Jojoba Oil | Non-GMO Vitamin E
If you’re looking for pure therapy, this is the soak for you. With no frills and no added scents, these salts are perfect for anyone looking to soothe sore muscles and exfoliate with chunky, extra-coarse Epsom salts.
300mg CBD per bag (5 bags 12-oz each)
