The Bathory.

A few weeks ago I was invited to try out a product from the Bathory; and given the opportunity to make my own bath soak. I was really intrigued by this as I do suffer with a lot of sensitivities restricting products I can use, so being able to pick what went into my soak sounded ideal. And what better of a time to be able to try the divine bath salts? Yep, when I came out of hospital and needed some relaxation therapy!

First of all the website; it's perfectly designed and so visually appealing that I couldn't resist. To be honest I'm a sucker for visuals and normally if I don't like a website, I won't give them a second chance at checking out their product. They already won me over with their sleek monochrome look. 

So how does it work? Well you basically pick out what you want your bath soak to contain. Your base  option is for the salt mix. You can bask in mineral rich salts, be soothed with oatmeal, honey and buttermilk (mmmmmm) or have a detox with pure epsom salts and rhassoul clay. I went for the soothing option; the combination is great for my sensitive skin. 

Following this you pick three essential oils to add to your soak. If you feel stuck at all you can choose from the top tab to offer you suggestions on combinations to your soak; such as feeling relaxed, sexy, or inspired. Straight away I knew I felt like having a relaxing combination so opted to add lavender and chamomile. My third essential oil was ylang ylang for a little kick. 

And it was as simple as that! 

A few days later a gorgeous little package arrived through my door, and I couldn't wait to get stuck in.   I adore the product packaging. The paper bag and the 'let's get naked' card feel very homely and natural; I like it when a product is reflected in packaging and the ethos of the brand is held throughout. The sleek black and white jar is simply divine. The card even had a few ideas on what you could do with the pot after you've used your salts! 

I was quite surprised with the product, when I thought 'bath salts' I had imagined it to be a more salt-like grainy consistency but was pleasantly surprised that it was quite a grounded powder. I much preferred this. You can add as much or as little to your bath as you like, Bathory's suggestions are a quarter, half or a full jar of the product. I honestly felt I would be wasting it if I added too much so I settled for around an eight! And the bath, was simply divine

You can make your own bath soak on Bathory for £18. Or why not make for someone else? We all know Christmas will be coming soon - yep I said the dreaded 'C' word too early!
