Aster & Bay
Night Bloom Bathing Salt
The signature scent of Night Bloom Bathing Salts is an aster & bay interpretation of a floral which is not overly sweet but rather captures the true essence of flowers in the garden at night, with notes of earth, smoke, and wet leaves. Himalayan pink salt and Hawaiian lava salt are blended with dried petals to create a truly sensorial form of bathing.
Directions for use: Add desired amount to bath once the tub has been filled. Disperse the salts with your hand, step in, and enjoy. Keep water out of container and store away from the bath when not in use.
Ingredients: Sodium Chloride, Rosa damascena (Rose)*, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower)*, Consolida ajacis (larkspur), Calendula Officinalis (calendula)*, activated charcoal, proprietary blend of essential oils.
About aster & bay: Erin Hammond began aster & bay in 2012 as an experimental project while she was undergoing training in western herbalism. After having lived in both Edinburgh, Scotland and Atlanta, Georgia, she was inspired by the botanical diversity and herbal lore of both places- the Appalachian Mountains and the Scottish Highlands- and sought to incorporate as many of these indigenous ingredients into her formulations as possible.
Now back in Scotland, aster & bay is run by Erin and her husband Glen out of an old biscuit factory in Edinburgh. Whether it's sourcing local herbs from the Highlands or sea salt from the British coastline, aster & bay is still rooted in the spirit of whole plant ingredients, minimalism, and craft.
