Epsom Salt Bath Soaks.
Epsom salt dissolves in water into a magnesium and sulfate compound that when absorbed into the skin can help with certain ailments such as sprains, aches, swelling & insomnia (especially paired with sedative essential oils). At The Oily Bar, we use pure epsom salt mixed with essential oils and skin safe colors for a fun effect. When combining essential oils and epsom salt, the essential oil binds to the salt and then they dissolve together into the water and then into your skin, maximizing the effects of your bath.
Bubbly Bubble Bars.
Bubble bars are newer on the bath market. They are basically solid forms of bubble bath. When you run your bath water, you hold them under warm water and they stream bubbles into your bath water. The benefits of these versus liquid bubble bath is that it is much more sustainable using no plastic, oftentimes cheaper and they smell delightful sitting next to your tub.
Oatmeal is a tried and true method for sensitive skin. Oatmeal in its colloidal form is actually ground from the kernels of oats and blended into a fine powder that then dissolves in water. It has been used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions including atopic dermatitis, eczema, severe dry skin and minor burns. If you struggle with sensitive skin and many of the things above can irritate it, it might be best to stick with simplicity and colloidal oatmeal might just be your match!
Fizzy Bath Bombs.
Bath bombs have beome a phenomenon of bath culture. They’re solid and hard strictures that when dropped into water fizz, bubble and foam and oftentimes fizz out different colors and you’re left with an instagram worthy bath pic. When we make our bath bombs, we use all natural ingredients only including kaolin clay for healthy skin, sweet almond oil for hydration and most importantly, scented with essential oils that not only smell phenomenal, but also upgrade the benefits of your bubbly soak.
Hydrating Milk Bath.
Milk baths are also a more modern component of bath taking. These often come in some sort of sache that can be placed in the water to then infuse your bath with a wonderful soothing milk bath. While these can be made from cows or goat milk, at The Oily Bar we are a plant based company and use oat, almond or coconut milk powders to create our milk baths. Benefits of milk baths can include hydrating skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin firmness, ease sunburns and improve inflammatory conditions.
When it comes to bath taking, many can find it ritualistic to run a bath and pop in their favorite bath product. At The Oily Bar, our hope is to enhance your bath experience with all natural bath products infused with essential oils. Please know that none of these claims are suited to diagnose or treat any ailment and we always encourage you to seek medical advice for any concerns.
