Tami McCarthy, Salty Bath Co-Founder

A busy mom and entrepreneur, Salty Bath Co-Founder Tami McCarthy believes that women need to nurture themselves emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally. The positive impact of having a self-care routine on her life gave her the idea for the Salty Bath concept.

Opening the salty bath kit is a relaxing experience in itself, as you are immediately greeted with the mantra: I am at peace, whole and balanced.

With a subscription box for almost everything these days, I have found myself wishing that it was possible to buy a subscription of time, rather than the sometimes unecessary items that come with them. Salty Bath's monthly subscription is about the closest I will ever get to that. This kit not only comes with relaxation and detoxification promoting natural and organic bath salts, essential oil, body butter, crystals and a candle, but also a tall order for setting aside the necessary time to use them. “Baths were always therapeutic for me, but I lacked a structured routine or ritual that combined relaxation with wellness and mindfulness," proclaims co-founder Tami McCarthy,. "So I started there. I began meditating while taking a 20-minute, warm salty soak with essential oils that I custom-made myself. The impact on my body and spirit was astonishing, and this had big payoffs in every facet of my life. That’s when Salty Bath was born.”

A busy mom and entrepreneur, Tami believes that women need to nurture themselves emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally.   "I am one of those reformed crazy-busy people – juggling a family, a career and many creative pursuits, and I fell into the trap that I as long as I was taking care of everyone else, I was fine. That’s just self-abuse, and I needed to make changes., " she explains as her own beiefs on self-care . Tami makes the comparison of humans to electronic devices that always take the time to "recharge," saying that we too need the time to nurture and recharge ourselves. 

I have to admit that after receiving my Salty Bath kit in the mail, it took me weeks to use it. I kept putting off taking a bath thinking that I did not have the time until made a point to schedule it in my day as a priority. Never one to relate when people describe lacking the time to exercise or cook (because to me it is about making the time), I was doing the same thing about scheduling time for self-care, which is just as essential to overall health and well-being. That is why I love the concept behind Salthy Bath. it not only delivers the tools you need to make a relaxing space and practice, but also the step by step directions for doing so. 

Salty Bath's Steps for a Self-Love Ritual

  1. Light the candle and place the crystals around the tub to summon their healing properties

  2. Fill the tub with water and the dead sea, epsom salt and essential oil based bath salts

  3. Sit, breathe deeply and recite you bath intention, relax and soak away stress and fatigue while breathing in the healing aroma of powerful botanical essences to harmonize your world, body and soul. 

  4. Elevate your after bath experience by using essential oils and other bath products to feel completely restored, refreshed and nourished. Give yourself a hug, these were important sacred moments you gave yourself.

Her background as an aromatherapist has allowed her to identify and create a perfect blend to solve many everyday problems. 

What is your overall purpose and mission, as the founder of Cure Oils?

My business motto is:  Integrity.   We want our health conscious customers to have the best products at fair prices.   We also want to facilitate education and ease of ordering, avoiding MLM strategies and buying requirements.  

Can you share a favorite wellness routine or ritual of yours?

I love the simple routine each morning, when I shower, I place a few drops of Eucalyptus in the corner to promote breathing and makes my whole bathroom smell like a spa. I also have a Clean blend that is super concentrated that I love cleaning with it instead of chemicals.  

How have you overcome any challenges you have faced in your journey and do you have advice for other "wellpreneuers"?

There are may challenges in my industry due to a few large MLM businesses that cause skepticism of the actual benefits and quality of many smaller companies like mine that provide a superior product, better customer service and real knowledge of oils.   To combat this scenario, Cure Oils continues to educate customers by trained and certificate aromatherapists what is the truth and what is not.  I believe real knowledge is power.  My advice to others in this industry is to never stop learning and studying the science in your particular area of focus.   I also think there are so many ways we can use our creativity to inspire new products, packaging and ideas that can benefit the world.  I await the future in the wellness industry.

What are your favorite essential oil blends? Describe some ways readers can replace chemical ridden products with essential oil blends.

It's hard to pick a favorite product or oil that I prefer.   It is like asking which child is a favorite.   I love and use every product we make.  My Repel blend, which is DEET free, insect repellent is a favorite for outside activities, this time of year.  I also keep my Lavender handy during summer for all sunburns, rashes, insect bites, etc.   I use the Allergy3 almost everyday during Spring through Fall to fight my seasonal allergies.   I go first to essential oils for any ailment affecting me or my family.  I could go on forever, but that is just a few. 

Do you have any new products that you are excited about launching?

I have the following new singles available in September: Ginger, Cedarwood, Juniper Berry, Sweet Fennel, Cypress, White Fir, Cassia, Sweet Marjoram and Helichrysum.

I have the following new blends available in September: Forever (anti-aging), Acne, Brave (Meditative Blend), Anchor (Grounding Blend - similar to Valor or Balance), Sprout (Children's Restful Blend), Calm (Restful Blend), Meditate (Grounding Blend), Studio (Prana/Yoga Blend), Vata, Kapha and Pitta (which are Ayurvedic/Dosha Blends).
