As we step into 2023, we also step straight into Veganuary, a month filled with opportunities to learn and educate ourselves on veganism and how it not only benefits us humans but also mother earth.

However, veganism isn’t just about what we eat, but also about what products we use in our everyday lives. Making a change to veganism doesn’t have to be drastic, and we have some fantastic products that you can incorporate into your everyday life, that care for you and the planet.

The UKs leading bath salt brand, Westlab, produces wonderful vegan, cruelty-free products that are perfect to incorporate into your self-care routine. As the post-Christmas blues are well under-way, Westlab Recover Salts, from their Aromatherapy collection, make the perfect addition to your next bath. These salts include magnesium, eucalyptus and arnica which soothe, relax and cleanse the body. These salts are also great in helping recover from the chaos of the post-Christmas festivities and help reduce anxiousness that comes with the New Year pressure.

Co-Founder of Westlab and Salt Specialist Penny Hamilton say “Magnesium has an incredible calming effect on the body. It is known to be linked directly to stress, meaning when the body is deficient or low on magnesium, it increases adrenalin levels allowing individuals to feel more anxious, worried and frantic. However, magnesium plays an essential role in maintaining the levels of serotonin (our happy hormone) in the body and with the correct intake, can help improve mood”.
