Australian Midnight Black
Naturally occurring, unprocessed salts contain sodium chloride, magnesium, potassium, bromide, and many other essential elements. Slipping into a bath with salts added can soften and restore mineral balance to skin and relieve body tension. Salts are naturally antiseptic, astringent, and drawing, and may be beneficial to those with skin conditions. They may help relieve itching and ease the discomforts of poison ivy, insect bites, and other minor rashes.

Pure Vegetable Oils, Butters, & Waxes
All plant oils are defined as ‘lipids’. They contain essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins, waxes, tocopherols, chlorophyll, carotenes, squalene, and antioxidants. It is the differing combinations and levels of components that give us variety in plant oils and their therapeutic properties. Oils applied to our skin soften, supply nutrients, are equipped with antibiotic properties, and can protect delicate skin from many environmental elements.
