The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Soothe Bath Salt Soak

By Marion Shaw

Do you know when Mother’s Day is?  For all of those who don’t, put a big ring around Sunday on your calendar, May 14th this year and plan to treat your Mother on her special day.  (By the way, if you live in Great Britain, that date is Sunday, March 26 this year and is often referred to as Mothering Sunday.)

For all of you who are mothers, it’s time to start dropping some big hints to your significant other as well as your kids, as to what would be a wonderful gift for you.

Because the life of a Mom is usually hectic and many of you do not find the time to truly relax and enjoy some peaceful time alone, having a luxurious soak in the tub will be a really special way to celebrate.  (Along, of course, with the card, flowers, chocolates, jewelry and a gourmet dinner!)

Here at Kismet, we have the ideal ingredient to make your bath time more enjoyable.  This will feel like a spa at home!  Gift wrap one of our wonderful Soothe Bath Salt Soaks and then set the stage for your bath experience.  

Here it goes:

  1. Find your best candle, that book you've been meaning to finish, and maybe a glass of wine.
  2. A neck pillow will also help to make you more comfortable.
  3. Close (and lock) the bathroom door. Put the “Do Not Disturb” sign up.  (If the kids are around, arrange for them to be looked after.)
  4. Run a comfortable hot bath, add ¼ cup of Soothe Bath Salt Soak and swish around to dissolve.
  5. Climb in and relax!

One of the first things you will notice is the wonderful aroma of Ylang Ylang essential oil.  This has to be one of the most heady and exotic oils which also has the ability to decrease blood pressure, is an anti-depressant and also encourages deep relaxation.  It is used in many perfumes, most famous being Chanel No.5.  

Those little red fragments in the bath salts are dried rose petals, which also add to the fragrance, but also moisturize the skin and lift your mood. 

The most powerful ingredient in our Soothe Bath Salt Soak is the Himalayan Pink Salt, which gives the bath salts its color. This is one of the most nutrient-rich of all of the natural salts and will soothe and relax your whole body while replenishing minerals, particularly magnesium which has the ability to relieve stress and what Mother doesn’t need that?

So don’t leave this until the last minute.  Start dropping those hints now, and if you are buying for your own Mother, why not visit our shop and get ahead of the game by stocking up on Soothe Bath Salt Soak. Trust us- your Mom will absolutely Soothe!
