I have a very well-developed sweet tooth and can happily munch my way through a jumbo bag of mini eggs in one sitting. But I very rarely crave something salty, and when I do it’s usually more of a savoury craving than a need for salt.
But one salty thing I love is a good salt scrub for the body. Scrubbing away the dead skin until I’m pink and glowing like a piglet is almost a rebirthing experience, it leaves me feeling brand new. I love the whole idea of the bathing ritual and on a cold and rainy evening I like to make the bathroom warm and cosy, with scented candles, some moody music, and a hot bath.
But bathing isn’t just about running a bath and jumping in. Instead I like to de-muck beforehand, because there isn’t anything worse than lying in a tub full of grimy water. So a shower and a good scrub down with a deliciously scented salt scrub are essential preparations. I don’t think it’s necessary to accessorise with the ubiquitous glass of bubbly, or even a book, instead I like to take the opportunity to close my eyes and relax and let any tensions and worries slowly melt away.
