Benefits of Using Bath Salts
We all enjoy a good soak in the tub from time to time and adding bath salts can make it even more enjoyable. But should we be taking baths more often? Well, tub-lovers, we have good news for you! There are several benefits of taking a hot soak and even more if you add in bath salts!
Humans have been taking baths for centuries and many cultures believe them to have medicinal value. From Japanese onsen (traditional bathing in hot springs), to Roman bath houses and even baptisms, bath-time can be very important to your health. So why not treat yourself? Although baths alone hold a lot of benefits such as relaxing muscles, reducing blood pressure and improving your mood, adding bath salts can add even more amazing benefits.
Our New Lavender Still
We receive questions about what happens with our lavender after it has been harvested, especially this time of the year when the lavender is no longer in bloom, so we thought we'd take the time to remind you how we use the harvest from the 6,000 lavender plants we grow here on Old Mission Peninsula!
Spring is a welcomed change on Old Mission Peninsula. The long, cold, and dark winter months had us eager only to bundle up and rest along with our landscape. The start of spring has us anticipating the beauty we know will surround soon us, but there is a lot of work to be done to get us there.
