would you like salt with that?

Today's fun in the blending room of Merionwen Towers as produced a delicious bath salt.

If, like me, you live in a hard water area there is nothing better than a generous scoop of salt in the bath to add softness. Coupled with that is the mineral benefits of adding natural salt to a bath.

Himalayan salt is hand mined, washed and dried at the foot hills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. I personally do my best to seek out a sustainable source and make sure it is fairtrade certified wherever possible.

Himalayan pink salt contains an almost identical set of elements to those in our body - in the same proportions as occur in our blood. The distinctive rose pink colour is a result of the high mineral content in the salt (iron, potassium and magnesium). So in my opinion why would you put in your bath something you would not put into your mouth. With this in mind I find this particular salt ideal.

I am blending it with a variety of good aromaceuticals, for both properties and wonderful scent. Of course there will be blend with finely ground rose petals. We all love roses right? Anti ageing, soothing and they smell great.

However, I am also looking at a spice blend, something floral, a botanical aspect and a citrus zing.

These salts have a dual aspect as they can also be used as gentle shower scrub. What better way to start a morning or sooth an evening?

Served up in a sweet kilner jar to make your bathroom look pretty. Or, if you so choose you can add to the experience with an ethically sourced wooden tub and scoop. These will also be available through the shop. I will also be making available bags of refills so you don't need to worry about having to ship a new jar each time.

I have tried to think of everything!
