Benefits of Sea Salts. Who Knew?
Nowadays, who has time for a bath? Quick shower, scrub down, in and out and on with the day. Really? We don’t have time to take a bath? That’s sad (and I am preaching to the choir here). What if we allowed ourselves time each week for a long, luxurious soak in a tub. Add a little bathing salts to the water and reap the benefits that help improve circulation, reduce tenderness and a balm for sore muscles, arthritis and tension.
So my research has taken me to the study of bathing through the ages. The Romans were known to have 3,000 people bathing simultaneously including huge food feasts, theatre and a little massage thrown in for good measure. The feasts, theatre and massage sound good to me, until I think about the 2,999 other people in the tub with me. In the words of Jimmy Fallon, ‘ewwwww’.
The Egyptians bathed for purification before daily prayers, the Japanese bathed to cleanse the mind while the Greeks took cold showers to fortify their spirit.
Did you know that salts can help the body detoxify by opening pores and cleansing away dirt and toxins? Soothing skin that is ravaged by the wind and the elements. Add a little essential oil and we’ve got bliss. We go a step further by using salt from the Vancouver island Salt Co that hand harvests gourmet sea salt from the cold, clear water of Vancouver Island. Then we add in our essential oil blends with organic botanicals that we grow on our farm (ok its just our backyard, but farm sounds so much more impressive:). Then package these delicacies up for your bathing pleasure. All you need is a scoop into your warm bath and immediately your senses will be filled with calm and serenity. You’ll imagine you’re on the West Coast storm watching in a cabin, with a roaring fire in the fireplace while you lounge in your drawn bath of heaven. Afterwards, the masseuse will come by to massage your muscles and just as they finish, the chef will arrive with a banquet laid out before the fire. The giant tv will have your favorite show on and you’ll cozy up on the couch and eat.
See? Don’t you wish you took a bath more often? Just imagine where it will take you and when you use our bathing salts, we can’t guarantee the cabin, the masseuse or even the chef but we can promise bliss and serenity with just a scoop.
Hi, I'm Caron and the other bloom of Two Blooms Design Studio. I'm a dreamer, production manager and social media wannabe. I'm married to the word adventure and will never stop dreaming.
What makes a good lip balm? In my opinion, I prefer plant based, so our lip balms are all essential oil based - we often get asked for various flavours that don't exist in natural form, .All of our lip balms use pure essential oils ( that we source ourselves to make sure they are the highest quality we can find) and are 100% plant-based.

Not sure where my fascination with chai began but it's all around me these days.
Hello blog, it’s been awhile and I’ve missed you so I decided to come back and write again.
The New Year came in and I barely noticed it. My sister and I always say it slows down but in honesty it really doesn’t. The only difference is....
In this new year most of us make resolutions. We either make them and don’t keep them or make them and keep them. This year Caron and I wanted to make a resolution we would stick with and
Two Blooms had an amazing rest over the holidays but deep down I knew my blog was waiting. As hard as it was to not keep writing, Caron & I both needed the break and time away for our minds to wander and dream.
I hate to admit it but I’ve gotten caught up in the busyness of the season. My sister and I are entrepreneurs after all and it’s very hard to take a breather and slow down. We’ve written about this topic before but every time we go through it, it seems to feel different.
In this ‘instant’ society of North America, we tend to want everything now and do not like to wait. Some things though can only truly be savoured if we only taste them once a year.
The perfect small bag just couldn’t be found, I didn’t want a plastic one that would eventually crinkle and crack. Nor did it make sense to buy one factory made that everyone else had.
We all like donuts don’t we? I do, the sweet sugary taste, the billowy goodness you enjoy after your first bite. It’s comforting even though you know it’s not the best for you. We all crave that sense of comfort and that immediate taste bud fix.
