After a very stressful January and equally frustrating February… i’m back to share a few new delightful suggestions and product reviews from my favourite mountain maker. This little kit from Rocky Mountain Soap Company has been a lifesaver for me since I first came across the foot salts nearly 5 years ago. After going through a great deal of emotional stress at that time, I bought them at the downtown location in Calgary and have been a huge fan ever since. The soothing smell of Fir Needle combined with the light and sweet smell of Grapefruit has been a personal favourite of mine and continues to aid me after long hikes or a stressful work day in heels.
The newest to the foot care clan is the ‘Serious Scrub’, which can ultimately be used for any rough and weathered area of the body that needs some exfoliating. However, it pairs perfectly with the salts, butter and foot spray to create a mini Pedicure kit with all the right elements to treat your feet right. The serious scrub is made with Pumice, making it much more intense than any of the regular sugar scrubs so it should not be used on sensitive areas. I love that feeling of having your skin “breathe” after exfoliating and this scrub definitely does the trick. Its especially good for those rough edges of the heels and toes, I can’t wait to use it after my next hike. It smells amazing, with a combination of pine and orange, it leaves your senses utterly revitalized.
As i’ve mentioned in my previous post, Rocky Mountain Soap Company is 100% committed to provided products that are toxin-free, both to the body, and the environment. So not only are these products safe, but they are respectful of the environment that essentially gave birth to their existence. Every time RMSC comes out with a new product, I am amazed at how much I learn about the restorative properties of the plants around us.
Something interesting that i’ve noticed since incorporating both Saje Wellness and RMSC into my skincare routine is that my senses have begun to reject the artificial scents in other brands of skincare and pick up on the organic ones. I’m not one to demonize another business, and I certainly would never pinpoint another company for not using organic ingredients. That being said, it does amaze me what the brain is capable of and how simple essential oils can cause us to immediately destress, feel revitalized, or even send us off to sleep.
Aside from the Serious Scrub, there are a couple more products that i’ve loved incorporating into my foot care regime. The first one being the Fir Needle Foot butter. I cant even begin to tell you how AMAZING this smells.. and how many times i’ve slathered it on my feet before getting into bed (note: wear socks after application). I have 2 sticks of the full sized foot butter and a mini one (pictured) for when i travel.. it’s THAT amazing!! Because I love my ‘woodsy’ scents, i think that the cedarwood, pine and fir needle scents always appeal to me the most.. it’s the perfect “Canadian Rockies” scent, if you know what I mean.
The last item on my list is the Cool Feet + Aromatherapy spray.. This spray is good for any time of day but is most delightful after a sweaty run. The tea tree oil is a natural germ eliminator which is fantastic and the menthol in the peppermint leaves your tootsies feeling cool and refreshed. I didn’t start using this product until recently, so its still fairly new to my daily rituals but its found a new home in the pocket of my workout bag and helps me feel like less of a sweaty, gross slob when I leave the facility.
