How often do you take the time to look after yourself - to unwind, have a bath and simply relax?
With so many body products flooding the beauty market, it can be pretty confusing to figure out where to start, let alone what to use. Recently, I found Salt and Glow on Instagram (@saltandglow). Handmade out of Sydney, Australia, the products, which include bath tea bags, body polishes, elixir oils and lotion melts, are 100 per cent natural, so beautiful to use and they smell delicious too.
But these sweet products aren't just good for the skin - they send a deeper message that every woman needs to hear.
Roxy is the lovely lady behind Salt and Glow. Through her products, she wants to spread the message that:
"You are brave, you are valued, and you are so loved."
Roxy's vision for Salt and Glow and the birth of the business came about over the past 12 months through her own personal journey.
Read Roxy's story:
"I grew up in a Christian family and went to church as a child but never got the revelation of God. In fact, I just thought God was out to punish me for all the wrongs I'd done. I stopped going to church after high school, lived a rebellious life and went out partying all the time, but deep inside I knew God was real and that in the right time He would call me home.
After living life my own way, God called me back home through a good friend of mine and I discovered God’s love for me in a way I had never experienced before. Life was not all smooth roads after going back to church but I still wanted to declare my decision as a follower of Jesus Christ by being baptised.
In one of my desperate times after my baptism, I cried out to God for Him to reveal my purpose in life. He said - “You are going to be salt and light for Me in this world.” That seemed like quite a generic thing to say to a new Christian but it struck so profoundly with me and I knew God had just stamped this instruction on my heart. How was I to be salt and light for God? I had no idea, as I was still such a baby at this Christian thing but I truly believed that God would unfold the answer step by step as I kept abiding in Him.
Not long after, my housemate gave me a gift to enjoy in the bath before she left for holidays. I rarely take baths, as much as I would love to, as I always use ‘no time’ as an excuse. However, it seemed like the perfect idea as I had the whole place to myself. As I was soaking in the bath tub, a crazy thought popped up - “Oh, I can make stuff for the bath like this!”
