Himalayan rock salt: This is one of the purest forms of salt, full of magnesium and other minerals, it's known to sooth tired and sore muscles, draw toxins out of the body and reduce stress and emotional fatigue. As a natural exfoliant, it’s also known to remove dead skin cells and promote skin regeneration.
Grapefruit essential oil: A super refreshing oil, grapefruit has antioxidant and circulation stimulating properties. It is also famous for its beneficial effect on the lymphatic system, removing toxins and decreasing fluid retention. Studies even show it helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Coconut oil: As we all know this is a great skin nourishing and moisturising oil, with antimicrobial properties that make it great for many skin conditions.
