A long soak in a hot bath is a great way to unwind after a hard day. But if you really want to get the most out of your bath, you’ll want to add some carefully selected bath salts to really take the experience to the next level. At Radox, as the UK’s number one bathing & shower brand, we have been responsible for blending mineral bath salts since 1908 to deliver a mood, whether you want to be energised or refreshed, uplifted or soothed.
Choosing the Right Bath Salts
Ever sat in a perfectly drawn bath and wondered with a relaxing sigh “could this get any better?” Well, the answer is yes, it can in fact get better. With Radox bath salts. Adding some to your bath will take what’s already a quite heavenly experience to that next level of enjoyment.
But it’s not just a matter of grabbing any type of bath salts – they each have their own unique properties and benefits. And it also depends on what you want to get out of your bath salt experience: relaxation? Skin nourishment? A combination of all of these?
Aroma is hugely important when it comes to your bathing experience as well. Bath salts come in various scents, so choose one that aligns with your preferences and mood – some lavender or chamomile for relaxation, perhaps, or eucalyptus to invigorate your senses.
The mineral content of bath salts is something to bear in mind if you have a specific wellness goal in mind. Some varieties are rich in magnesium, calcium, and potassium, while others offer a broader range of minerals.
And what about the different textures bath salts can have? They can be fine or coarse – the coarser salts provide gentle exfoliation, while finer salts dissolve more quickly in water.
Keeping the above factors in mind when picking your bath salts means you can ultimately turn your bathing routine into a perfectly tailored therapeutic experience.
