Weleda Arnica Muscle Soak

My new phone gave me the unsolicited round up of my average daily screen time recently, information that has slightly horrified me. I am apparently spending an average of 2 hours a day staring into the weird abyss of my little screen, scrolling scrolling, trapped pinging around the holy trinity of Facebook, twitter and Instagram. Like Withnail: I feel like I’ve been in here too long. I feel unusual.

 I need something earthy and comforting and hippie-ish to counteract, something that will take me away from the appetite suppressant lollipops and #ads, something solid, something German.  I need Weleda.

The Arnica bath soak smells like a spotless vegan canteen in a commune. It make me feel like I could be a person who mixes vinegar and essential oil in a spray bottle to clean their house, like I could enjoy some peppery home grown cress in a sandwich. It’s the hemp tunic of products and I want to wear it. Run your hot bath and take absolute comfort, just don’t drop your phone in.
