Tami McCarthy, Salty Bath Co-Founder

A busy mom and entrepreneur, Salty Bath Co-Founder Tami McCarthy believes that women need to nurture themselves emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally. The positive impact of having a self-care routine on her life gave her the idea for the Salty Bath concept.

 Opening the salty bath kit is a relaxing experience in itself, as you are immediately greeted with the mantra: I am at peace, whole and balanced.

With a subscription box for almost everything these days, I have found myself wishing that it was possible to buy a subscription of time, rather than the sometimes unecessary items that come with them. Salty Bath's monthly subscription is about the closest I will ever get to that. This kit not only comes with relaxation and detoxification promoting natural and organic bath salts, essential oil, body butter, crystals and a candle, but also a tall order for setting aside the necessary time to use them. “Baths were always therapeutic for me, but I lacked a structured routine or ritual that combined relaxation with wellness and mindfulness," proclaims co-founder Tami McCarthy,. "So I started there. I began meditating while taking a 20-minute, warm salty soak with essential oils that I custom-made myself. The impact on my body and spirit was astonishing, and this had big payoffs in every facet of my life. That’s when Salty Bath was born.”

A busy mom and entrepreneur, Tami believes that women need to nurture themselves emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally.   "I am one of those reformed crazy-busy people – juggling a family, a career and many creative pursuits, and I fell into the trap that I as long as I was taking care of everyone else, I was fine. That’s just self-abuse, and I needed to make changes., " she explains as her own beiefs on self-care . Tami makes the comparison of humans to electronic devices that always take the time to "recharge," saying that we too need the time to nurture and recharge ourselves. 

I have to admit that after receiving my Salty Bath kit in the mail, it took me weeks to use it. I kept putting off taking a bath thinking that I did not have the time until made a point to schedule it in my day as a priority. Never one to relate when people describe lacking the time to exercise or cook (because to me it is about making the time), I was doing the same thing about scheduling time for self-care, which is just as essential to overall health and well-being. That is why I love the concept behind Salthy Bath. it not only delivers the tools you need to make a relaxing space and practice, but also the step by step directions for doing so.
