Sylph Bath Salts


When Caroline decided she wanted to sponsor Witches in Fiction 2013… to the Bone, she was worried that Glitter Tart Designs might not offer anything that would fit the party theme. I explained to her that there are so many things in the universe that have to do with Witches and bones that it would be almost impossible for her shop not to carry something that would go with this year’s motif. I’m delighted to say that I was right. The 9th giveaway of this witchy party emanates directly from the salty marrow of the Earth Mother’s loving bones.

Sylph Bath Salts
Neroli – Sooths and decreases tension, very floral with a citrusy sweet exotic scent
Juniper Berry – Eases stress without a sedative effect, it gives off a sweet fresh aroma
Cedar Wood – To Balance the Mind, a woodsy and sweet fragrance
Rosemary – To sooth aching muscles, a fresh and herbaceous smell
- 8oz of Sylph Bath Salts

Float away into the faery realm with these organically scented bath salts.

All organic oils are blended together to create a sweet fresh earthen aroma that is pleasing to both women and men. Each oil has a homeopathic as well as aromatic purpose and has been blended with Epsom salt, Dead Sea salt and baking soda.

The Sylph is a fragment of the earth’s soul in faery form. In the faery realms, light comes not from above but from within. The mythologist Joseph Campbell tells us that cultures throughout history describe a timeless zone beyond the visible world: “In dreams and visions one experiences have let us know, its apparitions are of a self-luminous substance, revelatory of the vital energies, not only of ourselves, but all living things” – Brian Froud

Fill a tub with warm water and add 2 tablespoons (or a bit more if it’s been a really hectic day). Sink down into the soothing relaxing waters and breathe deep. Enjoy! 

Please research the effects and benefits of Essential Oils on your body. Certain medical conditions may suggest avoiding certain oils and herbs. If you are allergic to any of the above ingredients do not use this product. These salts are not meant to treat or cure illnesses. Please consult your Doctor before using these bath salts if you are pregnant or nursing.” 
Here is what you need to do, if you wish to float in Sylph soothing waters:
Other than to relax after a hard day, for what other purpose would you use bath salts?

Happy 4th Blogoversary, my Wicked Darlings ;-)

I should call this a guest post, seriously. I was so in love with Carolines description that I just copied and pasted her words. I did not want you to miss the love she puts into her work. I found it captivating. If you like her words as much as I do, please visit her blog... say hello... and check out her April Art Giveaway ;-)

    1. A morning soak. I've never had one of those, might have to try it. I wonder if I would fall asleep in the tub...

  2. Oh, the salts sound divine. I have very hard cuticles, so I would probably use the salts for hand baths too. Softening them up before a good fat lotioning.

    I love her Pagoda centerpiece, so romantic.

    Mythological creature with me in the hot tub? An incubus, of course ;) I have a thing for succubi and incubi!

    1. I think I just pictured you lotioning (that's my new favorite word) you hands after softening them with luscious salts, then smiling as you fill the tub to wait for your incubus ;-)

    2. Dirty minds think alike ;)

  3. I would probably use the bath salts to help me prepare for ritual and/or spellwork. Specifically something to do with the Fae.

    I would love to get my hands on her bath bombs. I'll have to tuck that in my head for a splurge purchase.

    Soaking in a hot tub with a mythological creature.....hmmmmm. Probably a Water Nymph/Undine/Siren type of creature. As to why. Well, I would imagine that she would be interesting to talk to and drawn to the water. Plus, I'd love to hear one sing. (Just without the potential for death. LOL)

    1. A ritual involving the Fae, and then having a Siren sing to you to celebrate. It sounds like a party ;-)

  5. I would be much more likely to use these salts as an air cleanser (notice, not a *freshener*).

    1. I used salts as air cleanser, too! And there I was thinking I was alone in my weirdness ;-)

  7. I am the only person I know that finds the idea of soaking in a hot tub to be skin-crawly. It would be like sitting in a stagnant pond, to me. Now, I could soak in an eddy pool, or on the edge of the ocean....with a selkie or other such mermaid for company & telling sea tales of lands under the waters.

    1. No, you aren't the only one. I'm not crazy about it either. I do have to soak every now and then (when my hip and back muscles get so bad that I can barely walk really hot water helps) but I rarely do it for joy. But I love putting salts on the tub floor and "bathe" in the rising fumes ;-)

      Delete
  8. I don't normally take baths unless I have a lot of back pain or I am doing a ritual bath. In this case the salts would probably be used for ritual baths.

    What mythological creature would I want with me in my bath? Hmm.. Well I like the Succubus idea, but I am missing my furry friend today. So I'd have to say a werewolf. Best of both worlds hmm? lol. One snuggly dog for after the bath, and one hot man for in the bath. *wink*

    1. It seems we both take baths for ritual cleansing or body aches ;-)

  9. That's hard to say but they sound wonderful! Probably put them beside my bed so I could smell them while I slept. I sometimes put a bar of scented soap on my night table just because I enjoy the perfume!

    1. I have been known to put all kinds of yummy-scented things inside my pillow; anything from lavender flowers to citrusy leaves, so I do understand salts by the bedside ;-)

  10. How about using bath salts, with someone? ;o) Before, during, after ;o) Relaxing, invigorating ;o) Very good, I think ;o)

  12. I think I would want "Chrysaor" ;o) The brother of Pegasus and the son of Poseidon and Medusa.
    I think he would have a lot of interesting things to talk about! LOL! And, with his father being Poseidon, he would be good in water ;o)

  13. I don't take baths often (I just don't own a tub big enough to keep all my body warm at the same time), but every now and then, when I'm chilled to the bone, I take a super hot soak to chase the winter outta me...even if my knees only get the occasional dunking :)

    I visited her shop and love her eclectic offerings. The Geisha Journal caught my eye :)

    I wanted to congratulate you on 4 fantastic years, Dear Magaly! You really have made such a huge, shiny impact on this bloggy community....and I'm so glad to have met you here!

    1. I bet your knees are grateful for that bright smile of your, for every time is comes out it warms all of you even without the tub ;-)

      I went to check out The Geisha Journal, and I'm enchanted, too. Love the little flowers, the colors, and the pretty lady on the cover.

      Thanks a bunch for the congrats, and do know that the gladness is mutual!

  14. For some odd reason I can't reply to anything that has been posted.

    Thank you all for your kind words, I too use the bath salts just to clense the air (I take the left overs and put them in a pretty dish in the bathroom).

    Dreamhunter bath salts were inspried by a book called Dreamhunter. Don't read it, it's not good.

    1. I'm not sure why you can't reply ;-( Hm... I wonder if it's because I've already replied, which means that the little 'reply' box will appear below my comment? Are you getting an error message?

      Now I'm curious--I'm a sucker for literary punishment. The Dream-Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon is pretty awesome, dark and sarcastic.

  15. I would use bath salts to prepare for the day - nothing starts you off right like a leisurely soak! (Well, not *nothing*... but it's up there!)

    And the Geisha Bird Song Journal is Awesome. Love the delicacy of it.

  16. These give-aways are becoming hazardous to the health of my wallet -- but I am so glad of that! I'm bookmarking and adding notes to special occasions on the horizon, and will be shopping these stores and not retailers come holidays, etc.

    I love the idea of using the bath salts for an air cleanser or pillow sachets, oh, in the car, too! As well as for ritual and destress baths ;)

  17. I like the lavender bath bombs.

    As for soaking in the tub, I think it would be an Elf. They always seem to be superior and arrogant. From the stories I've read, they rarely mate with humans. They don't express emotions the way we do or even think as we do. (Sort of reminds me of Vulcans whom I seem to have a fascination for as well.)

    Well, I want to question him..er, I mean have a conversation with the Elf and have him explain it to me from the perspective of his species.

    1. I just imagined an elfish looking Vulcan, extremely serious, sitting in a bathtub discussing philosophy and astrophysics in the tub ;-D

  18. I think her little Pagoda Center Piece is just charming!

  19. I would probably use the bath salts as decoration, just so people will ask questions and I can tell them precisely where I got it from. Judging by some of the ingredients, this could probably be used magically as well...

    1. I totally agree! They are so stunning that they would make a wonderful piece to look at, not to mention to sniff every now and again ;-)

  20. You could use them in small containers around in your house to make rooms smell better.

  22. I'd have to say a unicorn or a mermaid. Although I'd prefer my unicorn in a meadow or something ;) They're just me 2 favorite mythological creatures.
