Introducing our fourth salt; the Witches Brew. We could all use a bit of magic in our lives these days. Less focus focus and more hocus pocus! Embracing the spiritually cleansing and hormone balancing properties of palo santo oil, yarrow extract and flowers as well as red clover flowers, hibiscus, dragonfruit pitiya powder and Brazilian rosewood oil for skin clarity, this alchemical mixture will transform your normal bath into an addictive ritual, inviting you to go within and commune with the mother inside.
All jokes aside, The flavonoids and alkaloids in the yarrow plant have been shown to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. Studies demonstrate that plant-based alkaloids like those in yarrow reduce the secretion of corticosterone, a hormone that’s high during chronic stress. So if you’re having one of those weeks where your parasympathetic nervous system is getting the better of you, this blissful bath is the one.
Red clover may also have blood-thinning properties, which keeps blood clots from forming and it appears to improve blood flow. Researchers think that isoflavones like those found in red clover can help reduce symptoms of menopause and menstruation such as hot flashes, cramps and night sweats, because of their estrogen-like effects as it contains active phytoestrogens that bind with endogenous estrogen receptors. Lastly, it helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and to prevent and treat vaginal dryness and osteoporosis.
Not just for the ladies, palo santo helps men, women and all people welcome creativity, love, & good fortune into their space. The wood & it’s scent can help brighten energy and promote feelings of positivity and joy. The scent of the wood and oil is also shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance clarity and concentration. Inhaling Bursera graveloens (palo santo) results in strong, psychoactive results. It is also used as an analgesic, aphrodisiac, diuretic, expectorant and insecticide also has anti-inflammatory effects.
