Have you already started making your new year’s resolution list? I haven’t, but I already know what will pop up on my list, it’s de-stress and sleep better (or should I say longer and more?). I also know what I will be asking Santa this year. A jar of Roques ONeil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts. You might think what have the two of them in common? Well, the Himalayan Detox Salts will make sure that I will stick to my resolution to de-stress and sleep better.
There has been quite a buzz regarding the Roques ONeil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts. It’s winner of the beauty shortlist Awards 2013 and it has made the top 10 beauty buys of Lily Pebbles and Fleur De Force on Cult Beauty. These beautiful bath salts made with Himalayan pink mineral salts are hand blended with essential oils (Geranium, Rosewood, Patchouli, Lavender, Juniper Berry, Lemongrass and Grapefruit) and dusted with powdered amethyst by renowned aromatherapist Michelle Roques-O’Neill at her London atelier.
Not so long ago I had the pleasure to be invited to Michelle’s atelier where I met Michelle and her team. After having spent a wonderful morning being introduced to the Roques ONeil products I received a sample filled with Himalayan Detox Salts so I could see myself whether the buzz is all true.
I have to say I am completely obsessed with these salts. Completely. Obsessed. I think I fell in love the moment I opened the sachet and the wonderful scent filled my room. These salts are meant to create a soothing, uplifting bathing experience. And let me tell you they do. A soak in these salts relaxes me and ensure I have a very good sleep afterwards. Perfect to unwind after a long and busy day. For the best results don’t check your emails or stay glued to your mobile after your bath. Just relax and fall asleep.
Even if you don’t have a bath it’s worth to splurge on these salts. I know, I know you might think I’m writing nonsense and getting paid to do so (which I’m not). My parents who always suffer from terrible jet lags and roam around the house in the middle of the night for at least a week (if not weeks) have been my guinea pigs. Because I got fed up with them waking me up in the early hours (no I’m not living with my parents (by the way nothing wrong with that)) I decided to put some salts in a little cup next to their bed to see whether the smell would make them sleep better (they are the shower kind of people). And hallelujah it did! Well I think it was the salts. They still went to bed very late, but at least they slept through the night until the next morning instead of waking me up all the time. I give all credits to the salts. And even my dad who is sooo not into beauty products thought the Himalayan Detox Salts smelled great.
You don’t need much of the salts to enjoy a wonderful bath so a jar (400g) or the large 500g pouch take you a long way. The Roques ONeil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts can be purchased on the Roques ONeil website.
