REJUVENATING FLORAL BATHS: DESTRESS AND DETOX!

Soaking in a luxurious floral bath after another day in quarantine is an awesome way to break up the monotony while simultaneously detoxifying your body. Flowers and flowering herbs have incredible healing properties and when added to a tub filled with warm water, epsom salts, and essential oils you can concoct your own personal nighttime ritual that is equally beneficial for your physical and mental well-being. Some flowers and herbs that we recommend you add to your next bath for maximum benefits are:  

Roses: Hydrates dry cracked skin
