The Bathory* make each step of the process of ordering a joy. From customising your own bath soak online to a really quick delivery time, not to mention the beautiful packaging. This joy continues when you sprinkle it in to a hot bath and relax. These products have been well thought out and it feels like a little slice of luxury in your bathroom. The Bathory are a new company and it feels like they already have everything spot on. You follow a series of fun easy steps on their website to invent your personal blend of Bath Soak. It all starts with how you want to spend your bath – Bask, Soothe or Detox.
I went for Soothe which has a blend of Pure Epsom Salts (known for their health benefits), Oatmeal, Honey & Buttermilk. Then you get to pick 3 Organic Essential Oils so I added Bergamot, Chamomile and Sandalwood. You then head to the checkout & thats that, its all very user friendly and easy. You feel like a crazy scientist putting together a potion. I was excited for them to be delivered & they arrived 48 hours after I ordered them, all the way from The Bathory workshop deep in the English Countryside (sounds idilic).
I instantly fell in love with the packaging. From the brown paper bag to the violet coloured glass jar which they encourage you to reuse (the violet colour of the jar even helps protect the essential oils). Everything has such attention to detail which is really refreshing. I couldn’t wait to use them & made an excuse to have a bath. Now these Bath Salts are not for those people that just want to dip & run, they need to be enjoyed & relaxed in. I did just that.
I’m terrible at describing scents but it is safe to say these smelt incredible, relaxing and intense (in a good way). I used a quarter of the jar and that left my skin silky smooth and soft and my body was relaxed. I felt as my blend suggests very soothed. My husband even commented on how nice the bathroom smelt after I’d used these. You can use as much of the jar as you feel you need but The Bathory suggest that for the Best Bath Of Your Life you use the whole jar – how indulgent!
The Bathory say,
‘We believe in bathtime. Baths to be shared, or luxuriated in all by yourself. Baths for starlit nights, for post-run mornings, for lazy Sundays. Baths to fall in love with.’
and I say this is the Bath Soak for that job!
I now want to pop back on to the website & come up with another blend, I think next time I will go for the Bask option. These would make a very thoughtful gift. I wouldn’t say these are aimed at people who don’t like luxurious baths or taking time out to really enjoy them because at £18 a pot they’re an indulgence but one I think is worth every penny. Click over to their virtual apothecary & see what blend you come up with. Oh & they accept PayPal & ship worldwide – happy dance.
Let me know what blend you’d pick, or if you order one link me to your post so I can read all about it.
