This is a TRUE DETOX! Don't expect this to be a relaxing bath. Instead, this bath will be very short, but totally worth it. It's intended to open your pores and encourage sweating. So as soon as you feel cold (from the menthol which takes less than 5 minutes) you need to get out of the bath and immediately layer on clothes, sweaters, towels, blankets to keep you warm and encourage the sweat.
The vapor that this soak will energize your body and calm your senses. This menthol-infused soak will invigorate your skin, open pores and encourage the body to sweat. Which means you'll be releasing toxins long after you're out of the bath. This soak is great to help you breathe deeply and detox at the same time.
Expect a cooling, tingling sensation even in a hot bath. Immediately wear warm clothing after this bath until the cooling/sweating sensation subsides.
The organic virgin coconut oil and refined sesame oil are rich in essential fatty acids that help to hydrate skin and calm your mood. We’ve added a gentle blend of eucalyptus and lavender.
Organic virgin coconut oil is cold-pressed, pure, natural and unrefined. It is extracted from freshly harvested coconuts using a "wet milling" process that uses neither chemicals nor high heat. The result is a clear coconut oil that retains its natural antioxidant properties. You’ll like that it is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily residue.
When used in baths, magnesium (salt) is important for combating both stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). Bathing in our high quality Epsom and sea salt blend could replenish the minerals that are critical to our skin’s metabolism.
Shake the container well to distribute menthol crystals. Infuse your hot bath water with no more than a half a cup of the vapor soak. Be sure to measure properly. It's time to get out when the cooling sensation becomes noticeable (less than 5 minutes). You WILL FEEL COLD! Immediately dress and keep the body warm after soak to encourage detox sweating. The cooling sensation will last long after you've finished your bath and dressed.
Enhance the hydrating experience by using Salve's Super Soft Scrub with your soak. Keep jar tightly closed when not in use.
Exceeding half a cup may increase the amount of menthol in the bath, creating a sensation of hypothermia. Use caution. Avoid eyes and mouth. Recommended, adult use only. Children can benefit from the vapor soak mixed with other salt and in smaller measurements, or from aromatherapy only. Avoid eucalyptus while pregnant and with homeopathics. Do not use eucalyptus with small children or with high blood pressure or epilepsy. Eucalyptus is toxic when consumed orally.
