When you walk into our Eagle Street brick and mortar in Downtown Asheville,
you will find yourself in our beautiful and aptly named “Salt Apothecary”- a carefully curated retail collection of home, office, health, and beauty products made with or infused with Himalayan Salt.
With so much to offer in our in the shop, we thought it would be fun to spotlight this season’s most popular products.
GERM BUSTER ESSENTIAL OIL :
Keep your home and office smelling delightful and free of germs with this Thieves inspired formula. This blend is packed with powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral and immune boosting oils such as Clove, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon and Lemon. If this isn’t a part of your cold and flu prevention kit, you should add it in now. This blend is wonderful to diffuse throughout the day, add to your DIY cleaning spray or hand sanitizer. It can also be made into an all natural oral rinse; promoting healthy gums and teeth! Just dilute a few drops in a glass of water, swish and spit!
The 2oz. bottle retails in our shop for $19
LAVENDER HOT/COLD SALT PACK:
These lavender packs are everything right now with it being so bitterly cold out! When heated up, these are absolutely perfect for soothing achey joints and muscles, cramps or just for warming up fingers and toes after being in the cold. I usually heat a small one for my 2 year old to hold and cuddle in the car when we go out in the morning and he love’s it too! It only take a couple minutes in the microwave (if you have one) otherwise they can be heated in an oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees.
When using as a cold pack, they are great for bumps, bruises, and eye pillows for combating headaches or migraines.
All of the packs are handmade by a local Asheville artisan who sews them for us. We then create the balanced blend of lavender flowers, essential oils and Himalayan salt and fill each pack by hand and then stitch them up. We make 4 different sizes and they all come with beautiful cover case that is removable and washable. These make amazing gifts and will cost anywhere from $7.95 to $37.95
HIMALAYAN SALT NIGHT LIGHTS:
If you love the soft glow of a traditional salt lamp, you will be enchanted by these night lights! They put off a beautiful soft light perfect for illuminating a dark hallway, bathroom, bedroom or kitchen. These are a fairly new addition to our apothecary as we have only had them in for about 6 to 8 months, but we have been having trouble keeping them in stock! People are loving them and these to make a wonderful gift or Salt Cave “treasure” to bring home. Each nightlight comes with a bulb and plug and there are now 3 beautiful shapes/styles to choose from. They retail anywhere from $16.95 to $24.95.
If you love Himalayan salt like we do and are into wellness and self care practices, you’ll love poking around the salt apothecary.
The list above barely scratches the surface of what’s in the store and I didn’t even mention the incredible services and events that we offer! We strive to offer the best massage in Asheville, as well as therapeutic salt therapy in our nature inspire salt cave. Stay tuned though, that blog post is soon to come.
