Start your sleep ritual with the Magnesium & Amethyst Deep Relax Bath Soak. It is made of mineral rich salts which are known to relax muscles, ease tension and help promote deep sleep. Blended with powerfully reparative and relaxing oils and gems –from Amber to Juniper Berry, Benzoin which is calming and reassuring, and Amethyst which is known to be restoring and rebalancing. This powerful mix combines to create a supportive and peaceful bath soak that help you feel calm and nurtured. While in the bath – if you can – switch off your phone, take a moment to just be and breathe, without external stimulation.
After your bath dry yourself with the towel and massage the SOS Body Balm into your skin.
