A Warm Winter Indulgence
A soak in the tub can be reinvigorating for the mind and body. Warm aromatic waters can relax muscles, ease away tensions, and spark creativity. In Minnesota, a dip can ease winter chills and reinvigorate dry skin. Fortunately, MN makers don’t disappoint in creating everything needed for a luxurious and restorative bathing experience. Today is national bubble bath day, so we at MN Brands for Good decided to highlight MN makers elevating all things bath time.
A warm bath can ease sore muscles and get the blood pumping all the way back to your frozen digits. Epsom salts have a long-standing reputation for easing pain and inflammation. Up the recuperative properties of your bath with some Minnesota made natural additives. We love Essence One’s Milk Bath Tea made with coconut milk, oatmeal, lavender, and chamomile.

You could finally finish that book or do some journaling too. Who’s to say that these MN brands didn’t design their wares out of necessity?
