Bath salts are slowly but surely becoming popular in India too. And i’ve decided to contribute to the growing momentum! Why not tell everyone what the best options are.
Here are my favourite bath salts in India.
1. Soulflower Green Tea and Tangerine Aroma Bath Salt:
This bathing salt is a real boon for those with dry skin! People who have dry skin usually have a dehydrated and stretchy feeling post bathing. This product will help you get rid of that! One needs to add two capfuls of this bath salt to their bathing water. The bright orange crystals look like Tangerine crystals and when dissolved in the water, it imparts a bright orange colour to it! The bath salts do not completely dissolve in water; a few crystals do remain and this is purely for a scrub action!
It keeps your skin soft and smooth and one does not have to use a body moisturiser post bathing! That dry, stretchy feeling vanishes entirely! It has a fresh citrus smell to it and although it promises relief from aching muscles, it does not live upto that promise. A slight warning here, if you have a wound on your body, this product may cause a sharp stinging sensation! At Rs.350 for 400gms, certainly is the best bath salt in India! if you don’t think it is the best, you will certainly agree that its amongst the best. Worth a try for sure!
2. Soulflower Rose and Geranium Bath Salt:
This product from the house of Soulflower comes in a transparent tall jar. Its black lid is covered with a piece of butter paper which in turn is delicately tied with a piece of jute string with an artificial rose stuck on it! The bath salts are bright watermelon pink! One needs to add two capfuls of this salt into warm water or simply dip a towel into a bucket of bath salts and hot water and place the towel over specific areas of the body that feel stressed out or tired. Soulflower claims that using this product makes one feel that they are lying back in a cloud of roses and while this may seem a bit exaggerated, this is exactly what the product does! You do feel like you are surrounded by roses! The burst of perfume calms and relaxes you! Very good for those tired, aching muscles! It costs Rs.350 for 400gms. Worth a try folks!

5. The Nature’s Co. Rose Bath Salt:
This product comes in a transparent plastic tube which resembles a test tube!! It is priced at Rs.175 for 75gms! In terms of quantity, this does seem disappointing. It contains dehydrated rose petals and salt crystals that dissolve in your bathing water and does not create any lather. Strongly fragranced with rose and essential oils, it surely helps you relax. Also, it makes the skin soft, supple and clean. The only drawback is the quantity! A few baths and you would need to order another one!!!
6. The Nature’s Co. Cinnamon Bath Salt:
The striking feature of this product is its smell of delicious cinnamon!!! It comes in a transparent plastic tube which much resembles a test tube!! Again, in terms of quantity, it does disappoint you.
