At Acala we love to bring the sanctity, tranquility and relaxation of a spa atmosphere and experience to your home. And what better way to do this than with a relaxing bath. 

Our DIY bath salts kits means you can mix and match the scents and salts that work for you. The kit includes:

  • 250g epsom salts in a glass jar
  • 50g dried lavender flowers
  • 50g chamomile flowers
  • 50g dried calendula flowers
  • 10ml lavender essential oil
  • 1 muslin cotton bag to pop your flowers in whilst bathing

Each kit makes approximately 5 baths worth of salts.

How to use: 

  • Add 50g of epsom salts to a bowl
  • Add 10g of each dried flower to the same bowl and mix
  • Pour the mixture into your muslin bag and tie shut.
  • Run your bath, when it reaches the right temperature add 5-7 drops of lavender essential oil, drop in the muslin bag and prepare to relax.

 

Why these ingredients 

Eposom Salts: Magnesium plays a number of important roles in the body from regulating enzyme activity to reducing inflammation and helping muscle and nerve function.  The sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, and help ease migraine headaches.

Lavender Flowers and Lavender Essential Oil: Since ancient times, Lavender (Lavandula angustifola) has been one of the most popular and widely used scents in herbal remedies and beauty. Known for its soothing and calming effect, it is often used to relieve many ailments. Applied topically to insect bites can relieve irritation.

Chamomile Flowers: Chamomile is commonly recognised for its soothing properties for both mind and body. 

Calendula Flowers: Calendula has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that might make it useful in healing wounds and soothing eczema. It’s also used as an antiseptic in acne care.

Preparing for your bath

Often, where at-home spa-like baths fall down, is in a lack of preparation. It’s in the prep stage that you set the scene for everything to be as relaxing as possible. Here are our top tips for how to prepare for a relaxing bath:

  • Choose your time wisely: Ensure you won’t be disturbed and you have no pressures on your time to be somewhere or do something.
  • Create a spa-like atmosphere: Remove children’s toys, lotions and potions. Aim for a clutter free bath area. Then choose a favourite scented candle, as well as a few other non-scented ones, and place these safely around the bathroom, and dim or switch off the lights. Place a rolled up hand towel or bath cushion at the head of the bath to support your head and neck once you get in. Put on some relaxing music. 
  • Think about afterwards: Preparing for the perfect bath means being ready to get out. If you’re not, you will ensure all that relaxation dissipates in moments. Have a bath robe and fluffy towels ready (Turkish and Egyptian long-cotton are the best!). But also make sure there are no glaring lights waiting for you when you emerge, and no jobs that need doing.
