Good news, this is the product for you. One of the best ways to refresh yourself after a long tiring day, is to take a fresh water bath and use some bath salts. If you have a mild headache, close your eyes put a washcloth soaked in the Soulflower Bath Salt water over your eyes and relax.I have used bath salts earlier at hotels but didn't think of using one regularly until recently when a friend of mine gifted me the Soulflower Ocean Mineral Bath Salts (Rose Germanium).
