This is a kinda sorta copycat recipe. All the elements are there, warm and floral fragrances, relaxing and mineralizing components, the detox power of natural clays… really, everything is the same except the color scheme. I chose grey over pink. Mostly, because I love French grey salt, but the subtle detoxifying power pink clay was hard to pass up for the more conventional, albeit stronger, bentonite clay. Salt (not table salt, natural salt) has some pretty impressive benefits beyond just the exfoliating you get from the granules and the scrubbing motion. It also remineralizing skin, assists in keeping a healthy pH, reduces bloating and swelling (yep, you read that right), detoxifies, and it’s even an antiseptic. So, while it’s undeniable that a warm salt bath will help you unwind after a long day, it may also keep you healthier overall—just a little something to think about while you soak in the tub.

”In face scrubs, salt helps slough away dead skin to brighten dull complexions.” - Allure

 
 

“Sea salt is laden with minerals, including magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium, all of which play a key role in our skin's health, function, and cellular communication. When your skin's mineral balance is off-kilter, symptoms such as dryness, dullness, irritation, and blotchiness ensue.” - Women’s Health

 
 

“Quality sea salt and unheated rock salt kill pathogens, detoxify the skin, and absorb dirt and grime. salt deeply purifies and cleanses your pores without aggravating the microbiome of the skin.” - Alitura Health

Just a note, bentonite clay is a little bit sticky and will bind to slick surfaces when you add water to it. I recommend rinsing or wiping you tub after using.
