African Botanics Kalahari Desert De-Tox Bath Salts are far and away the most amazing bath salts that I have ever tried. As is always the case, the innovative and visionary thinking at African Botanics results in the creation of products for which there is no precedent in the marketplace. This extraordinary company, and its founders Craig and Julia Noik, continually create ultra-luxe healthy skincare and wellness products that boast astounding efficacy, luxurious textures, otherworldly aromas, and sustainably resourced ingredients of the very highest quality.

African Botanics Kalahari Desert De-Tox Bath Salts nearly defy description in that they feel and smell unlike any bath salts that I have ever experienced. The mineral-rich salt is sourced from the Kalahari Desert, that stretches across Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, and it is responsibly harvested from an ancient underground dry lake. They are infused with a unique aromatic blend of botanicals from The Cape Floristic Region of South Africa, and among their attributes is their exemplary ability to remove toxins and boost circulation. Skin is left soft, smooth, supple, and hydrated– while the spirits are elevated and rejuvenated.

The aroma is a refined fusion of The Cape Floristic Region botanicals, and while the scent is an amalgam of their scents, the top notes are subtly informed by the slightly tangy Juniper Berry with its edges softened by the Cape Rose Geranium Oil, the Lemongrass Oil and the Marula Oil. The aroma is, itself, a complex, delectable, earthy, uplifting and intoxicating mood elevator that delights the senses.

Additionally, the caffeine acts as an effective diuretic that removes excess water-retention and softens the appearance of cellulite while the carefully selected blend of ingredients nourish the skin, relax the muscles and quiet the mind.
According to African Botanics,

This exquisite blend combines pure, mineral-rich salt from the Kalahari desert, sun-dried and harvested from a dry, ancient underground lake once fed by subterranean streams and laid to rest on a saltpan deposit. The magnificent aroma of our unique botanicals sourced from The Cape Floristic Region, located near the southern tip of Africa will help boost circulation and assist with the removal of toxins while drawing out impurities to leave your skin feeling soft and fully regenerated. Formulated to help balance the pH levels, re-mineralize the body, cleanse, aid in relaxation as well as dissolve muscular tension and stress while softening the skin and uplifting the mind.
Key Benefits and Results:

Oxygenating Seaweed is wild-harvested by fishermen from the thriving Kelp forests off the coast of South Africa, rich in iodine, calcium, zinc and copper as well as antioxidants like vitamin C, Seaweed has been traditionally used to help relieve skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. Together with Caffeine they work to help break down cellulite and combat the build-up of toxins while stabilizing fluid levels in the body. Crushed African Buchu Leaf, known for its antiseptic and diuretic properties, develops a subtle yet sensual and mood-boosting scent.
Directions: Fill your tub with warm water, add a handful of salts (approx 30-50g). Immerse yourself and soak for 15-20 minutes to allow the salts time to absorb into the skin. Without rinsing, wrap yourself in a towel and relax under a warm blanket for 15 min, drink plenty of water to rehydrate and relax. For best results use 2-3 times/week.

I would definitely suggest following the directions, and cannot sufficiently underscore the importance of drinking plenty of water to rehydrate. I also love rubbing the salts on my wet skin before they dissolve because they effectively and gently exfoliate dead skin cells and therefore enable the nourishing ingredients to sink deeper into the layers of the skin.
