Drift Off, Bath Salts
Purpose: Naturally relaxing | Deeply soothing

Notes: Citrus | Lavender | Wood
Are you one of many who has trouble sleeping? Balancing a hectic work, social and family life can be tiring. Our soothing and relaxing salts boost the body’s magnesium levels, which are essential for a good night’s sleep. We’ve infused a therapeutic blend of lavender, mandarin, patchouli & vetiver essential oils that perfectly complement each other, balancing relaxing notes with uplifting notes in sweet harmony. We love taking this bath after a stressful day, it’s the calm we need before bed. Night Night.
Our body temperature needs to decrease before we go to bed in order to initiate good sleep and then maintain deep sleep. Research shows that a well-timed bath (90 mins before bed) increases the circulation of blood resulting in efficient removal of body heat and decline in body temperature. A nice bath before bed therefore accelerates and helps the cooldown of your body, increasing your chances of not only falling asleep quickly but also of experiencing better quality sleep. A magnesium deficiency can reduce your levels of serotonin, the happy hormone that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation. Redressing the balance can help clear your mind and improve decision-making. The blend also includes vetiver oil, a precious woody oil that studies show to aid sleep and promote relaxation.

“With Epsom salt, Dead Sea salt and soothing lavender featuring heavily in the ingredients list, the aptly-named ‘drift off’ pouch is one for those who like to soak in the tub before hitting the sheets.”
Have always loved Verdant Alchemy's bath salts ! They work wonders. Despite new Brexit regulations, I'm glad to be continuing my support to this independent company, buying directly on their website rather than via Anthropologie.
These are the best brand of bath salts I have ever used and I will be buying them as presents for loved ones.
These bath salts are my absolute favourite. Ever. The scent is wonderful and only a small amount makes my bathroom smell incredible, just like being at a spa without the expense! Super relaxing too as part of my bed time ritual - these have definitely improved my sleep. Excellent quality and great value.
Added this to the bath and it really helped me relax. I wanted to soak in its natural fresh aromas all night long and afterwards my skin was super smooth. It felt like a detox and would totally recommend anyone.
I have used many different bath salts, but have never used a bath salts product as good as Verdant Alchemy salts. The smell of these salts just whisks me away from all the stresses of my day. After a bath using these salts I guarantee you will feel like I always do after my baths, calm, releaxed, stress free. These salts are well worth the money I highly recommend them . They are a must for me.
