1. Mineral-rich Bath
Salts that are mineral-rich make a relaxing soaking solution that will melt away bodily aches and pains when dissolved in water. Recently at an event in Shangri-la Kuala Lumpur, we were given the Lush Big Blue bath bomb (RM36) to try. Made with sea salt, seaweed, lavender oil, and sodium bicarbonate, it fizzed upon contact with warm water and turned the water a brilliant shade of turquoise, which was fun to watch. If you’re lucky enough to own a bathtub at home or are planning to stay at a hotel room with one, make sure your water is warm before putting it in your bath, otherwise, you’ll be getting more pfft than fizzle! The fragrant essential oils in the bath bomb will soften your skin while the sodium and magnesium from the sea salt will relax your body and ease any muscular aches. If you don’t have a bath bomb on hand, you can get one (or more) at the Lush Store in Pavilion or add a one-third cup of sea salt into a bathtub filled with warm water.
