The benefits of mineral salts and clays are well known and they are widely used bath and body treatments. Our mineral salts and clay are sustainably sourced natural ingredients which are vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly and unrefined.
Epsom Salt is a wonder remedy! It was given the name of English town in which it was discovered bubbling up in the water from an underground spring in the early 17th century.
These magical salts are soothing, reviving, great for helping to cleanse the body and encouraging muscles to relax as well as assisting in recovery. They increase magnesium levels, a mineral that a lot of people don’t get enough of, which aids muscle control, energy production and helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body. For hundreds of years, this salt has also been used to treat ailments such as constipation, insomnia and, more recently, fibromyalgia.
Pink Himalayan Salt is rock crystals of salt that have been mined from areas close to the Himalayas, often in Pakistan. It is naturally pink in colour and loaded with minerals which provide incredible health benefits. It is widely used as a seasoning in food preparation and for therapeutic treatments.
Himalayan salt is one of the purest salts available. It has 84 trace minerals and elements such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium which gives the salt its light pink tint and has several health benefits including lowering blood pressure, relaxing muscles, preventing dehydration and improving circulation. For these reasons, Himalayan salt is believed to be much healthier than regular table salt.
Kaolin Clay is the most gentle among all the other types of clays used in skin care. It is gentle on your skin and, because it is so mild, it can be used safely on all skin types and is especially beneficial for those with dry, sensitive or mature skin. It is also known as China clay which was first used in China more than ten thousand years ago to make fine white porcelain.
Kaolin clay is an excellent facial cleanser, absorbing impurities from your pores and leaving your skin feeling wonderfully soft. It’s also a natural detoxifier and exfoliator and soothes and calms skin that is inflamed or irritated (fights acne). Regular use results in your skin having a more toned and fresh appearance.
Soy Wax is made from the oil of soybeans and is a renewable, 100% natural alternative to traditional paraffin wax. It is a great alternative to beeswax as it is softer and creamier and also makes it a good option if you are vegan. The soy wax we use has been sustainably sourced.
Soy is a natural moisturiser and is a popular ingredient in skincare. It has a luxurious light creamy colour and can come in various different blends. As the most popular type of vegetable wax in candle and wax melt making, it has little impact on our environment and produces a cleaner burning and longer lasting candle or melts.
Beeswax is the miracle of the beehive. It’s a natural wax produced by honey bees which they mould into the familiar hexagon-shaped honey cells form to create the honeycomb. During this process the wax starts to develop its colour and opacity depending on what type of nectar and pollen is brought into the hive by the bees.
Beeswax is very versatile and is a natural wonder material used in candles, furniture polish, reusable food wraps, homemade crayons, lubricant and natural beauty products. It heals and softens skin and is an antibacterial agent which can help fight conditions like acne, dry skin, eczema and stretch marks. The natural barrier properties of Beeswax also help to protect the skin from environmental damage, such as traffic pollution and cigarette smoke.
