Ila Bath Salts for Cleansing
The blurb on the box says, 'Himalayan Salt Crystals draw out toxins from the skin, while juniper berries stimulate the circulation, geranium sends energy to the lymphatic system. Your body will feel refreshed, your aura cleared of negativity.'
This weekend, I put the cleansing claims to the ultimate test. I went out on Friday afternoon/evening with an Australian friend, and attempted to match her drink for drink (red wine, followed by cocktails. It seemed like a good idea at the time). Consequently, I felt like I was dying for most of Saturday.
I had a bath with the Ila Cleansing Salts in the early evening on Saturday after a day of feeling very sorry for myself, and definitely felt a lot more human afterwards, if not completely brilliant. I'm not sure about my aura, but my head no longer felt like it was going to fall off and my stomach was noticeably settled. They have a clean herbal smell that isn't too strong (thank goodness).
So, Bath Salts for Cleansing do what they say on the tin, although I will be sticking to them after exercise rather than excess in the future. *
These are comparable to the price of Elemis Milk Bath at £42 for 500g. I bought mine during a 30% off sale at beingcontent.com, but I can no longer see them on the Content website. They are available from www.feelunique.com.
Ingredients: Himalayan Salt Crystals (Sodium Chloride), Essential Oils Of Lavender (Lavandula Augustifolia), Rose Geranium (Pelargonium Graveolens), Juniper Berry (Juniperus Communis), Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Schoenanthus), Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin), Naturally Occurring Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool.

*I have vowed never to drink again. Perhaps a vow not to mix red wine and cocktails is more realistic.
