Below are five bath products and potions used when I was pregnant. Not specifically designed for pregnancy (that’s for another post), all hold a special place in my heart. I call it Natural Soak Therapy – with botanicals & exotic extracts that are natural. All paraben free, mineral oil free and Australian made, it will have you feel wonderful inside and out.
1. MAINE BEACH – LIGURIAN HONEY BODY WASH
Made from the purest Ligurian Honeybee’s right from our backyard here in Australia. This organic body wash is wonderful to achieve that smooth and supple skin whilst washing away all those impurities.
I use it daily in the shower as it works with the steam to moisturise your skin and feels divine. It’s also beautiful in the bath or even as a luxurious hand-wash as there is a bonus antiseptic element to this mix with Aloe Vera. Complete with a favorite scent of mine, the Kakadu Plum, vanilla and Italian Blood Orange fragrances, this heavenly wash from Kangaroo Island is exotic as it sounds.
2. THE HUMBLE HAND-MADE SOAP BAR
Made by a family friend, this natural soap collection is pure and packed with goodies such as lavender for calming effects and Mandarin that perfectly complimented the Ligurian Honey body wash. It’s sure to keep you squeaky clean.
3. BATH SALTS
You can make these with so many different elements, this jar is from my baby blessing. The salts were blended by everyone taking turns in a circle adding; rose petals for love, sage for strength, cinnamon for courage, lavender for tenderness, vanilla for softness, cardamom for wholeness and of course, mineral sea salts. A little mushy but it meant a lot <3.
4. SALUS – PATCHOULI & ROSE ULTRA MOISTURE BODY OIL
Speaking of blessings, every time I pour some of this body oil into the tub, that’s how it makes me feel…special. Maybe, because I got this as a gift from a friend who is pregnant and so relaxed, mindful and values natural ingredients, especially when enduring the venerable experience of growing a baby. But also because patchouli and rose are a match made in heaven so it smells wonderful. Staying true to its principles, Salus’ body oil holds the purity of natural oils. It’s completed with Evening Primrose Oil that I especially love as it helps soothe skin conditions such as dermatitis.
Best to add this one to the bath AND lather more on after.
5. ORGANIC LAVENDER & JASMINE HEAT PILLOW
Lastly, the ORGANIC LAVENDER & JASMINE HEAT PILLOW bring the bath to bedtime and offers some relief to a sore body. Heating it up smells so great and is fantastic for aches and pains. Plus the lavender scent further assists with that all important sleep.
Beware, this collection will distract you from the every day and invite you to enjoy the moment. The natural flavors can take you to on a sensorial ride where you truly can relax, unwind and feel revived – I call is Natural Soal Therapy and it worked wonders.
Now time for a soak and a sleep.
