Dreaming Gates Bath Salts and Oils

The ingredients we use for our oils and bath salts are all 100% natural, plant and mineral products.   There are no artificial scents, fillers, or synthetic fragrances.

Fine vs. Coarse Salts

Both our fine and coarsely-ground bath salts are top-grade products made with a mixture of natural minerals and salts from the earth.   Fine Bath Salts are a powdered mineral blend, while Coarse Bath Salts are minerals and salts ranging in size from grains of sand to pea-sized granules.

Singles vs. Blends

Our oils and bath salts are scented with the finest essential oils and natural fragrances.   The only difference between our Singles and our Blends is that the first has one strong fragrance, while the second consists of a mixture of fragrances blended for a specific purpose (for example, Sleep is designed to encourage restful slumber).

Deluxe Bath Salts

Our deluxe salts are the same excellent blend of minerals and salts as our regular bath salts, with the added benefit of a keepsake glass gift jar.   Tightly sealed, the glass jar will keep your salts fresh and ready to use for a year or more.   With an eye-catching container and our sweet scents inside, Deluxe Salts make an exceptional gift.   Each jar contains a full 4 oz. of our coarse bath salts and can be refilled with our 1 oz. or 4 oz. packages.*

Natural vs. Synthetic

Or, why it's important to choose Dreaming Gates...

A great number of bath salts have emerged recently on the market with the word "Aromatherapy" appearing on their packages.   Truth to tell, most of these products contain synthetic fragrances and, as such, cannot be used for Aromatherapy.   The theory behind Aromatherapy states that the brain reacts on a subconscious level to the chemicals in the natural fragrances we inhale.   In the case of synthetic fragrances, these chemicals are completely different from what is found in nature.   They are made in a lab, and the companies that create them do so only to imitate a given scent--without regard to side-effects or secondary actions of the harsh chemicals they are using.   That is why, here at Dreaming Gates, we use only 100% natural fragrances and scents.   Sure, it costs us a little bit more.   But then, we actually want our Aromatherapy products to work.
