As a student, I’m on a budget. And when I say budget, it’s serious. It’s a no pedicure budget. Which was serving me fine until my Sports Medicine professor pulled me to the front of the class [as punishment for being late] to demonstrate the assessment of a sprained ankle. My bare feet were paraded in front of the class. I even had a bandaid on one food [yes, I am still embarrassed about it]. I missed the entire lesson because I was cringing at the sight of my own feet.
Lesson: Don’t be late. Get a pedicure.
And lucky for me, I just received my Simply Bath Salts in the mail. Perfect for a DIY pedicure!
Simply Bath Salts are made with three components:
Salts: A blend of three salts including Atlantic Sea Salt, Epsom Salt and Dead Sea Salt. All of which are kosher. The salts can not be certified as “organic” because they are considered a mineral, but Simply Bath Salts uses only the highest quality ingredients including pharmaceutical grade Epsom Salt.
Organic essential oils: The oils used in these bath salts are certified organic and 100% pure steam distilled! They provide the fragrance found in the salts, though you can also order unscented bath salts.
Organic Jojoba Oil: Added to the bath salts to help preserve their shelf life. This is a liquid wax created from the simmondsia chinensis plant and adds a touch of natural vitamin E.
When you order from Simply Bath Salts, your order is created when you order. Which means, the oils are not added to the bath salts until ordered, so it’s custom made just for you! This preserves the scent of the essential oils and ensures you have the most fragrant mix possible.
