Wild As The Wind make a beautiful range of hand-crafted, healing bath salts, all of which are infused with medicinal grade essential oils.
The bath salts with geranium [Psoriasis and Eczema blend] were a real treat and the psoriasis on my knees is lots better and not as angry looking and scaly.
Well done on making some marvellous natural products.
Hand Blended & Hand Wrapped Bath Salts
All our bathing salts are hand blended with some of the most healing and relaxing essential oils available, and are wrapped in lovely natural muslin.
*The muslin square is the perfect size for using as an age-defying exfoliating face cloth after you decant your aromatic bath salts into a glass jar.
*Between 75% and 98% of essential oils are adulterated, some of which will be rendered toxic at best, and carcinogenic at worst. So, instead of obtaining therapeutic benefits from using these oils, you are potentially damaging your health. Wild As The Wind essential oils are the real deal!

Bath Salts FAQ
If you don’t find the answers you need in this article then you might want to try the Bath Salts FAQ
Bath Salts Storage
Storing your essential oil infused salts in a glass jar keeps the bath salts fresh. As essential oils are volatile oils, they will soon disperse into the air if they are not kept in an air-tight container.
Beauty-full… really lovely, nurturing & cleansing on every level…
Bath Salts As A Gift
Bath Salts make a great gift for all sorts of people…
- Those that love to luxuriate
- Those that work too hard and never relax
- Those that are too busy to eat a balanced diet
- Those that have dry skin and other dermal conditions
- Those that have itchy skin
- Those that deserve a little luxury in their lives
- And, those that love beautiful aromas
Bath salts as a gift is not like buying something as personal as a perfume. But, bath salts as a gift is still as considerate and sensitive as buying something like perfume. This is because there’s a choice of bath salts for different personality types, and for different times in our lives… So, buying bath salts as a gift allows you to show the recipient they are seen, heard and understood, and that you care about them.
But, buying bath salts as a gift won’t get you into trouble like buying perfume potentially can!

Why Use Bath Salts?
Bath salts don’t just relax us and help our muscle aches and pains to fade away, because of the essential oils they can also improve our mood and aid restful sleep. But that’s not all…
Bath Salts For Dehydration & Mineral Deficiency
It is calculated that as many as 75% of us are chronically dehydrated, and that as much as 90% of the population is magnesium deficient… But, that’s not all… There are other mineral deficiencies that have reached epidemic proportions, such as zinc deficiency, iron deficiency and calcium deficiency, amongst others…
Health Benefits Of Bath Salts
Mineral bath salts, particularly those infused with high grade essential oils, like the ones from Wild As The Wind, are extremely curative, deeply relaxing and can help replace the mineral deficiencies in our diets. Each of the three salts used in our bath salt blends, Himalayan Rock Salt, Epsom Salt and Dead Sea Salt all have different healing properties, as do all of the essential oils.

The retro hand-printed luggage labels state which bath salts are contained within the muslin.
The following salts are available:

- Epsom Salt (essentially magnesium (sulphate), which is best absorbed trans-dermally, and which many of us are deficient in.)
- Himalayan Rock Salt (88 minerals from a very ancient and pristine source)
Read the full list of healing benefits of our bath salts.
Use Packaging As A Facial Cloth
The beautiful natural muslin packaging has been chosen as it’s the perfect size and texture for using as an exfoliating face cloth.
Using a mildly abrasive cloth in the process of removing dead skin cells helps to increase the renewal rate of facial skin cells, which has a very anti-aging effect on the skin.
The quicker facial skin cells are renewed the more young-looking we remain.
Remove Packaging & Store In A Glass Jar
Bath salts are best stored in a glass jar, preferably with a glass lid. Salt can be corrosive to untreated metals, however, pickling jar lids are coated in a protective layer of plastic, so these are also ideal.
Use your natural muslin for making nut milks or for straining other liquids in the cooking and preserving process. Recycle the 100% degradable plastic bag.
Alternatively, use your muslin cloth as an exfoliating face cloth, as directed above.
How To Use Bath Salts
Bath salts can be used to luxuriate, or relax, or for medicinal purposes. The beauty of bath salts is that if you are only using them to indulge yourself they still impart all of their healing benefits to you all the same.
It is estimated that the first 20 minutes of a bath, or foot bath, with healing salts, is when the toxins are drawn from the body, with the following 20 minutes of the bath allowing the minerals in the salts to be absorbed.
We should bathe for a minimum of 20 minutes in our salt baths, but forty minutes would be optimal.
Using Salt Baths
Place 200g of salts (approximately 1/5 of a 1kg bag of bath salts) into a hot bath, and then soak for a minimum of 20 minutes, or for up to an hour. Bathing for approximately 40 minutes, as a minimum, allows the salts sufficient time to be absorbed by your body, and for the detoxifying action of the salts to work effectively.
Lie back and enjoy!
Bath Salt Scrubs
To extract even more healing potential out of your bath salts first mix them with a couple of teaspoons of base oil, like Almond Oil, or Coconut Oil, and add a couple of teaspoons of warm water.
Stand in the bath as you start running it and use your bath salt solution to scrub your arms legs and belly. Not only will this improve the condition of your skin to the touch’. but it will also have a positive impact on any cellulite you might have. This would be particularly true if you added a couple of teaspoons of Cellulite Vanishing Oil.
Allow the salt to fall into your running bath to dissolve.
The feet are extremely absorbent and can deliver healing benefits to all parts of the body very quickly, as with Reflexology.
Salt Foot Baths
Foot baths can be equally as healing as full body baths, and in some respects they are preferential to immersive baths. It is possible to achieve the 1% salt to 95% water ratio (1:100) for an affordable, environmentally acceptable, and optimally healing salt solution.
To truly take advantage of the full range of healing benefits from salt baths, the salt concentration has to be equivalent to, or must exceed, the salt ratio of your body fluids (approximately 1%). Only this will activate the osmotic exchange ratio, allowing optimal levels of toxins to be removed from the body and for the minerals in the salts to be absorbed.
This is much easier to achieve in a foot bath than it is in an entirely immersive bath!
Note re. Himalayan Rock Salt :: The ferrous element within Himalayan Rock Salt, (which is what makes Himalayan Rock Salt pink), does not completely dissolve. This means a few very pink crystals will remain when everything else has gone into solution. For this reason it is best to place Himalayan Rock Salts at the foot of the bath to ensure you’re not sat on any of these abrasive crystals whilst bathing. Epsom and Dead Sea Salts are not ferrous and so they both dissolve completely.
Why Our bath Salts Are Extremely Good Value
These heavily aromatic bath salts are hand blended and then hand wrapped with love. The label is hand printed and partially hand written before it is tied, by hand, to the bath salts to add the finishing touches.
The essential oils that the salts are infused with are of excellent quality. Over 75% of all essential oils being sold as being pure and natural are, in fact, adulterated. This means that they have been manipulated in some way (often in several ways), which can diminish or negate the oils healing properties. in a lot of cases the adulteration actually transforms a lovely healing oil into a toxic glob of nastiness that you don’t want to put anywhere near your skin.
Our skin is our largest organ, and things can be absorbed and can easily enter the bloodstream. It is, therefore, important to ensure that you only use health-giving oils in your skin and healthcare regimes.
