Northwest Forest Soak
There's nothing like the smell of BC coastal forest during the first rains. All the trees exhale with relief, glad for the end to the long drought.
Our northwest forest soak is inspired by our landscape - the moody blues of the ocean and the lemony sharpness of our temperate rain forest.
Seaweeds add nourishing minerals and provide unique properties like stimulating blood circulation, easing irritations of the skin, and relieving aches and pains. Our seaweed blend is traditionally harvested by hand in the waters around Vancouver Island by licensed wild crafters and dried naturally.
The result is seaweeds with some of the highest amounts of Fucoidan found in a bath product. Fucoidan is a potent polysaccharide found in some seaweeds that is a healer, an anti-inflammatory, and a booster of the body's metabolism. When used in a soak, it also works to detoxify the body.
This blend of high mineral salts is infused with essential oils known for relieving fatigue and pain, boosting the adrenals and promoting muscular relaxation and breathing. Best mineral uptake and detoxing will occur if the bath water isn’t scorching hot... think warm hot water.
