It started with a broken foot. Followed by a float pod. And ended up with our lovely natural bath soaks and pure magnesium oils that you've just stumbled upon. But don't actually stumble - we don't want more broken bones!
Charles couldn’t work. He needed his foot to heal quickly. While researching what could help, he was reminded of floatation therapy with Epsom salt. Tried it. Loved it. Thought – that could be a good thing to bring to Whangarei.
SO WE DID! One problem we had to solve before we could open our float centre was – where to get a tonne (literally 1000kg) of NATURAL Epsom salt from?
We finally found some and bought enough to be able to supply other NZ float centres with top quality natural salt too.
Enter the New Zealand Rugby men’s team. Their strength and conditioning coach had heard of us and asked if we could make some one-bath-sized pouches, blended with essential oils, for his players to use for their muscle recovery baths when touring.
SO WE DID! We already knew the benefits of relaxing in a warm magnesium-filled bath with essential oils. Our children often asked for an Epsom salt bath with Wintergreen after training. And we adults (though much less sporty!) enjoyed soaking our cares and niggles away with added Lavender for example.
We thought – we should make these for everyone in NZ to benefit from.
SO WE DID! We sold the float pod and got making.
We toyed with the idea of fancy bath salts with flower petals and glitter but we prefer an easy life with less cleaning, so – JUST Salt & Oil. No unnecessary extras. Much more relaxing!
And can you imagine those burly rugby players on the world stage with twinkly bits of glitter stuck to their skin?!
