Winding down with SOAK Yourself.



ESSENTIAL OIL - The oil is made up of a combination of bergamot, sweet orange and lavender essential oils - a divine palette of scents. Now we are nearing winter I'm trying to up my oil game to keep my skin hydrated and the difference of using oils in my bath was huge. What I love about using oils is that you see instant results in your skin after using them. Having oils in your bath is almost like a intensive treatment - your pores are open and so your body can absorb more of the richness and along with the combination of the bath salts and soap your skin feels seriously heavenly. 

SOAP - I used this while in the bath and found it incredibly nourishing on my skin which was a lovely surprise as I often find that bars of soap can dry the skin out after use. Hand made and fragranced with blue poppy and eucalyptus, this was really gentle on my skin and worked perfectly in combination with the bath salts and oil.

BATH SALTS - Remember that episode of Friends where Chandler takes a bath? I had a pretty similar euphoric experience with these foaming bath salts... Bath salts have never interested me in the slightest, they've always been that product sitting at the back of my bathroom cupboard left over from a Christmas box set I'd gotten from Boots one year. But these crystals are worthy of the approval of Walter White himself. 

CANDLE - Made from 100% plant wax from a natural sustainable source, this candle is the perfect mood setter and with a Citrus Tonic fragrance it can easily rival the edible scents from the likes of Lush cosmetics. 

TEA - This is probably my favourite touch of the bath box...a camomile tea bag from Teapigs. My ultimate remedy for winding down at the end of the day is camomile tea and so a cup of this after my bath was the perfect ending to the experience!



This box was kindly gifted to me, but all opinions are my own. This would make the perfect present (especially for Christmas) and would make an even better gift to yourself for the times when you need uplifting. All ingredients are sourced and made in the UK and are always natural or organic, on top of that, with the sale of each box 50p is donated to charities in need. SOAK Yourself is a truly special little company making honest products that really work, so please check out their website linked above or if you live near the Chilterns you can visit their shop, just check out their website for details.

Thanks for reading!

  8. Dunno how important Seventh-Heaven
    is to you, dear... yet, if we DO NOT inherit that, or Purgatory, you for one shall be condemned to the Abyss o'Misery after this existence finite. And I wanna make DAMM sure you're going Upstairs with me. So, follow along if Seventh-Heaven is #1 on your list; if not, I fear for your indelible soul, lil one. Why? Why should I care about the salvation of the human race? I saw the Celestial City from far away -AND- i love you. Aint that Treason enuff, girl?

    No, maam, you DO NOT need to be a nun living a cloistered life; however, what you must do is say these TWO things and totally mean them:

    You believe in Jesus?
    You love everyone else?
    If answered YES to both,
    you'll join this sinfull mortal Upstairs for the most wildchild experience for time without end.

    God bless your indelible soul.
    cya Upstairs someday...
