Simply Bath Salts Review & Giveaway **Closed**



 
I have a great company to tell you about that makes one of the most affordable luxury bath salts without alot of fuss called Simply Bath Salts. I was sent a 24 oz. size bag of the Lavender scent to try, since all of you know that is my very favorite scent! You will notice that unlike alot of other bath salt companies, Simply Bath Salts does not add the color. I know in the past I have reviewed some bath salts that would be lavender in color if the scent was lavender. It really makes no difference in the scent or the quality. They just like to keep things simple. See, it makes sense why they call their company Simply Bath Salts!

 
Here is what they say about why their approach is what it is:
Here we have one product, one specialty, one passion: to provide all natural bath salt produced with the highest quality organic ingredients available.

As a small business, simplicity is truly behind every decision we make. It's a philosophy we gear all decisions toward. Our packaging, for example - not only recyclable, but cost extremely effective; the savings directly invested in premium organic ingredients.

Our commitment to you is not only to avoid artificial and synthetic additives, but to exclusively source certified organic scents and oils in all of our natural bath salt blends. Of course none are ever subjected to animal testing and all are proudly manufactured in the United States.

We take a getting back to basic approach with our bath salts. We use organic ingredients because they are environmentally friendly, produced without pesticides. Our oils are steam distilled from plants and herbs, our salts all left in their pure state. Traditional bath salts may include synthetic toxins that get absorbed by the skin and remain in the body. It shouldn't be necessary to decipher an ingredient list before soaking in your bath.
Makes perfect sense to me. And I really like the idea that this is all made in the U.S.A! In the making of my Lavender Bath Salts they combined 3 kinds of salts: Atlantic Sea salt, Epsom salt, and Dead Sea salt. Lavender oil is balances and calms me while organic Jojoba oil offers an all natural source of vitamin E. Both of these oils are Oregon Tilth certified organic to ensure no pesticides or chemicals make it into your bath. Wow, I really like that idea! This bath salt did not leave me feeling greasy or sticky, just moisturized and my dry skin really appreciated that. I don't know about you, but I get really bad dry skin in the winter and itch constantly and that is why I love bath salts and sugar scrubs. It helps me to keep my skin from getting too dried out and flaking.

While I was on Simply Bath Salts site, I counted 23 scents that you can get your bath salts in! I saw one that I bet is really awesome and that is patchouli, if I did not get something in Lavender, that would be my next go to scent. Can you tell I like the earthy scents, the nature, the freshness and the cleanliness. Please try to use only a cup in your tub and soak for 15-30 minutes at the most. Keep your bag away from humidity, moisture and direct sunlight. Salt does not expire but the oils used to make the fragrance will go bad after a year so try to use them up before that time.

Wow, I did not know all this news was going on about Bath Salts being a drug until I read Simply Bath Salts site Facts on Bath Salts. Here are a few tips from them and I will provide you the link to read the rest because you really need to know what is going on with bath salts:
The past year has brought much confusion regarding bath salts. Grabbing headlines and being banned by many states, these are no ordinary therapeutic bath salts but rather synthetically manufactured drugs deceptively disguised and marketed under a false name.

The substances in question are MDPV (Methylenedioxypyrovalerone), mephedrone, and methylone. These are man-made chemicals that mimic the effects of ecstasy, cocaine, and methamphetamines. No natural salt product includes these compounds; they feature ingredients such as Epsom salt and evaporated sea salt. More expensive variations will include aromatic plant oils or fragrance while even more elaborate mixes may include seaweed, organic clays, and FD&C colors; all of which are safe and incapable of inducing a drug-like high.

So how do you know you're purchasing natural bath salts and not drugs? Natural bath salts are sold in bath and body shops and specialty online retailers. They'll typically run $5 to $30 and are usually 12oz to 32oz in size. Designer drugs are sold in liquor stores or adult shops, often concealed behind the counter. They are intended to be snorted, injected, or smoked, not bathed in. They are extremely pricy, usually retailing at $50 for a small packet of 300mg. Some of the more common names include 'Cloud 9,' 'Red Dove,' and 'White Dove.'

Making these drugs especially dangerous is that base ingredients are sourced over the internet, imported from unregulated overseas labs, and mixed haphazardly. Each batch can vary in strength so that one never knows what, exactly, they are purchasing. This leads to the unpredictable behavior and the now all to common outcomes that fill the headlines. Hallucinations, heart trouble, kidney failure, suicidal thoughts, and violence are but some of the consequences.
Remember, I only gave you what I thought were really high priority tidbits, so please follow the link and read the whole story so that you keep up to date on what is going on. I am very glad I read that article as I did not know there was anything out there called White Dove and Red Dove or Cloud 9 and that people were getting high off of it! I live in a pretty protected life I guess and just don't understand why someone has to go and ruin things for honest folks! Regardless, you will love the way your body feels after soaking with Simply Bath Salts no matter what scent you choose!

Simply Bath Salts has been kind enough to offer one winner their choice of scent in a bag of their wonderful Bath Salts! Open to the U.S. only.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.Sponsored by Tomoson.com

I'm glad you also posted the information about the bath salts used as drugs.
One of our very best friends lost a stepson to those bath salts. She and her husband have been on Dr. Oz, one of the morning shows, and National Geographic channel trying to spread the word. The bath salts have been banned in our state.
