During sleep our body temperature naturally drops, triggering the production of melatonin – the sleep hormone. A warm bath produces similar results – as you get out your body cools rapidly, triggering the release of melatonin, helping you drift off naturally. A magnesium deficiency can reduce your levels of serotonin, the happy hormone that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation. Redressing the balance can help clear your mind and improve decision-making. The formula also includes vetiver oil, a precious woody oil that studies show to aid sleep and promote relaxation.
The combination of magnesium, precious oils and production of melatonin will help you fall asleep and have a restful night.
For the perfect bath, light some candles, play your favourite music, and fill the drawstring tea bag with salts. Dip into the bath and let the salts dissolve to release the therapeutic oils. Inhale, relax and enjoy. Store in a sealed and dry place out of direct sunlight to avoid clumping. Do not use if pregnant as the product includes essential oils.

Verdant Alchemy’s brand founder, Vivien Leung, used to work as a strategist in advertising. When she was completely stressed-out and overtired she would unwind with a relaxing bath. Consequently, she started creating therapeutic bath salts. Originally, they were just for personal use but after a while, the brand Verdant Alchemy was born. Made in small batches with lots of love, in London.
