BENEFITS AND HEALING PROPERTIES OF NATURAL SALT SOAKS

Aura Hampers use pure imported salts, straight from the source - from the Himalayan Mountains and the Dead Sea. With no artificial additives or colours, (the pink colour you see in some of our products comes straight from the natural properties of Himalayan Pink Salt), our salts are pure and unrefined to provide optimal benefits without any nasties.

BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS

Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in blends to get the benefits of multiple oils in the one use.

BENEFITS OF BOTANICAL BATHS

Pimp your bath!

Aura Hampers add organic dried flowers and petals to some of our Infused Bath Salts for their added therapeutic benefits (and let's be honest, their beauty and scent). Salt baths relax the body and can speed up healing and reduce swelling by relaxing the muscles and encouraging circulation and with their added botanicals these baths are particularly helpful for speeding up healing and postpartum recovery, but are beneficial for anyone, at any time.

It is important to ensure the oils used in pregnancy (and for anyone at any time for that matter) are 100% pure, genuine quality essential oils – not synthetic oils or fragrances that can contain harmful chemicals. It is also recommended that these oils be diluted for safest use while pregnant;...
