For the bath fanatic, this exquisite, customizable experience from The Bathory is certainly one to be reckoned with, as it was such a full sensory treat for my feet during the busiest time of year- New York Fashion Week! The gorgeously designed website for the brand lets you choose from among three salt mix bath experiences (bask, soothe, or detox), and choose three of among 10 different oils, such as ylang ylang, lavender, rosemary, bergamot, grapefruit, or sandalwood. It’s easy to coordinate the essential oils together, as The Bathory offers a ‘goes well with’ section so you have a better idea of what scents to combine.
My customized combination, courtesy of the brand, arrived in a recyclable violet glass jar within a small branded brown paper bag, and inside where the softest bath salts I’ve ever encountered in my life. The finely milled combination (I chose Bask , a combo of epsom, Himalayan pink, and Dead Sea salts with lavender, bergamot, and grapefruit) was seven solid ounces of the most delicate bath salts I ever tested.
The aroma was heavenly but not overpowering, and with a few taps into the basin, the natural, organic ingredients dispersed to provide THE soak of soaks to my feet, which were about to revolt from being jammed in heels for 13 hours. The Bathory suggests that you can use the entire bottle in one bath, but I’d rather savor the experience, sparingly adding it to little soaks here and there. So relaxing and made just for me, I think I will be hard pressed to go back to my previous bath routine…
The Bathory’s 7 oz jar is $30, and ships from the UK to worldwide destinations for $5.
