The Gift of Soothing Relaxation

The Gift of Soothing Relaxation

2017 Holiday Gift Guide is on the way!

The Spice Lab


I was looking for the perfect gift to give a couple of friends of mine. They are both the type of people who are always helping others, but rarely takes any time for herself. That’s when I remembered that The Spice Lab had sent me products for the Holiday Gift Guide, and I decided the best gift, is the gift you make yourself! I chose to put together a couple of relaxation baskets for them. The Spice Lab sent me these amazing bath salts and teas, and I knew they would be perfect!

The Perfect Relaxation Gift

The Spice Lab has so many wonderful products that would have been perfect for these baskets, but these are the ones I received to review.

The Spice Lab Bath Soaks

Himalayan Pink Salt & Lavender Bath Soak – Made with 100 % Pure Natural Himalayan salt, infused with Blue Lavender. Lavender is very calming and helps to remove stress.  Himalayan Pink Salt contains 84 minerals that are beneficial to your skin. This smells so wonderful. If you love lavender, you’ll love this Bath Soak.

You can see the salt and lavender in these Bath Soaks from The Spice Lab

Lemon Citrus Sea Salt Bath Soak – Made with 100% Pure Natural Sea Salt, infused with Lemon Citrus. Citrus helps clear up acne, and clean pores, and sea salt softens skin and adds nutrients. I love Citrus scents, and this one does not disappoint. It’s wonderful and lemony!

These Bath Soaks come in cute little ‘milk bottles’. The glass is thick and heavy, and you can see how beautiful the bath salts are. I like to put them in a reuseable linen tea bag and hang them under the bath water spout so they can melt right into the water as it goes into the tub.

Calming Wellness Tea

Calming Wellness Tea“Smooth spicy notes with the sweet cinnamon coming to the fore. Finishing with relaxing lavender.”

Serenity Wellness Tea from The Spice Lab

Serenity Wellness Tea – “Soothing and restful, with chamomile in abundance. Mild licorice delivers a refreshing light finish.”

Recovery Wellness Tea from The Spice Lab

Recovery Wellness Tea – “For whatever ails you – light and refreshing with an invigorating citrus finish.”

The Spice Lab teas come in really cute jars with a wooden spoon to measure the tea. They are loose leaf teas, meaning they are not pre-measured into a tea bag. You measure them into your strainer, for each cup.  Be careful when you open the lids, you won’t want to put them down. They smell amazing!

Each of these teas are aptly named because of the herbal ingredients. The ingredients are common herbs for calmness, serenity, and ‘recovery’. Calendula is an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and it calms muscle spasms. Lavender is very calming, as well as being an anti-bacterial. Chamomile has been used for ages to help calm anxiety.  Lemongrass is an anti-oxidant, and an anti-inflammatory.

The Finished Baskets

So, I’m adding a Bath Soak and a Tea to each basket, as well as a candle, a bath scrubby, and a small jar of honey to sweeten the tea. They will make the perfect gift! I hope these ladies get a lot of relaxation out of these baskets. Keep your eyes open because these could be a part of our Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway!

Do you know someone who would enjoy these as gifts? What bath salts would you use? Which teas?
