Anthesis sends Mom around the world in a bathtub

Toiletries are the go-to gift for moms, and who knows how many lotions, soaps, and bubble bath bottles she displays until they are dusty and then slips them into a bag for the local homeless shelter. Tiresome gifts from children whose imagination needs some inspiration

Put some thought into this Mother’s Day and surprise Mom with products she won’t see displayed in the mall. Give her something that will fire her imagination!

Anthesis bath salts are handcrafted by a woman entrepreneur (Mom will like that) who combines natural ingredients with imagination. The aromas of her salts will take Mom to exotic places without the hassle of visas, airports, and the TSA.

Here’s where Anthesis salts took me:
Rose: Rome’s famous rose garden with its 1,100 varieties of roses that are in full bloom around Mother’s Day
Citrus: a lemon grove on Sorrento, Italy, overlooking the Bay of Naples
Mastic: Ikaria, Greece, a little known island with fresh scents of nature infused with sea spray
Eucalyptus and peppermint: a eucalyptus forest in Australia’s Blue Mountains
Chamomile and calendula: a relaxing outdoor evening bath in India where marigolds surrounded the private bathing area

Anthesis products are made with dead sea salts that contain about 300 trace minerals that cleanse and detoxify skin, exfoliate dead skin cells and relieve muscle aches.

You can order Anthesis products through the Etsy (dot) com website and learn more about the benefits of natural beauty products.
