Four Humors

Imagine that you could have a different personality lover any given night depending on your mood and how you feel?

We believe that the babe who claims never to have wished for such a thing has neither consulted her/his memory nor confronted her/his darkest fantasies.

The Four temperament theory is a proto-psychological theory that suggests that there are four fundamental personality types: sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric.

WHAT

IS THIS

STUFF?

WHERE

IT CAME

FROM?

The theory has its roots in the ancient four humors theory (humorism) of the Greek physician Hippocrates (460-370 BC), who believed certain human personality traits and behaviours  were caused by body fluids (called "humors"):

🔺blood
🔹phlegm
◾️black bile
🔸and yellow bile.

The theory is also related to the classical elements of air, water, earth, and fire; as sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric, respectively.

They made up a matrix of hot/cold and dry/wet taken from the Four Elements.

WHAT 'S

SO HOT

ABOUT IT?

There are many new personality theories that were developed from this ancient concept, often disguised under different names.

Dr. Helen Fisher’s personality types — Explorer, Negotiator, Director, and Builder — bear a striking resemblance to Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Choleric, and Melancholic respectively. Having said that, this doesn’t minimise the value of her original research.

Although Myer Briggs personality types were based on a completely different typing system, description of their 16 types is very similar to four basic types.

HOW

DID IT

GET MADE?

We call it a trip! A deep salt soak takes you on a journey of the senses, impacting your mind without the downer of side effects.

The term psychedelic is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, "soul, mind") and δηλείν (delein, "to manifest"), hence "soul-manifesting", the implication being that psychedelics can access the soul and develop unused potentials of the human mind.
We totally believe in the transformative power of a hot bath - on a physical, mental, and even spiritual level.

Guided by the principles of ancient Greece, as well as Chinese medicine, herbalism, and aromatherapy, we have sourced the most powerful, active ingredients to create our range of 4 bath soaks from an exceptional blend of salts + botanicals + essential oils.

Each soak is remarkable in its own right, possessing its own distinctive character and purpose to help you achieve your wellness goals.

Find a note to chosen lover inside each bottle…

or perhaps it can be a love note to yourself?

HONEYMOON YOURSELF! Give yourself an unforgettable night of self-love and appreciation with this amazing bath salt.

 
 

WHAT 'S

INSIDE?

We DO NOT outsource making of our bath soaks. None at all. Signed, sealed and delivered.
We DO NOT use (who knows when) ground botanicals or plant resins.

All of the ingredients purchased dry, organic/wild-crafted and whole. We then finely crush them in the house. Just before blending and bottling.
So your lovers coming to you fresh with load of potency to do the magic you want them to do.

We use food grade Epsom salts that have been sustainably extracted (to a very high quality specification) from geological underground deposits in Germany, one of the few countries where naturally occurring and derived Epsom Salts can be found.
Most Epsom Salts on the market are artificially manufactured in China.

 

So now is this thing.

Imagine that you could have a different personality lover any given night depending on your mood and how you feel?

We believe that the babe who claims never to have wished for such a thing has neither consulted her memory nor confronted her darkest fantasies.

We've recreated the feel and essence of each personality type lover. All you need to do Bella is get into your Sunday best...nude.

 

HOW

DO I USE

IT?

Bath:
1. Fill bath tub with water.
DON’T add salt at the beginning. Wait until the tub is full and ready to go, otherwise much of the essential oils will evaporate in the hot and moist environment.
2. Jump into the tub and then add your desired amount of salt.
3. Soak for at least 20 minutes to allow the ingredients to work their magic. Use crushed botanicals floating in your tub as a gentle body exfoliant.
4. Drink water before, during, and after the bath.
5. Rinse and towel dry. Wrap yourself in a towel or robe and keep warm. For the best result, relax and prepare for bed. Your body is primed for sleep during the cool-down period, and a good night’s rest is the ultimate remedy for all!

CAUTION: Hot or warm baths should be avoided by people with certain medical conditions, except on the advice of a physician (including pregnant or breastfeeding women). Keep out of reach of children.

Foot soak:
Don’t have a bath tub? Don’t fear! Each foot contains over 7,000 nerve endings which connect to the rest of the body, meaning regular foot soaks will benefit your entire sense of wellbeing.
1. Dissolve 2-3 tablespoons of the formula in a bowl of hot water.
2. Soak for 20 minutes.
3. Finish with cold rinse.

 

 

HOW

DO I CHOOSE

ONE RIGHT FOR ME?

GREENWASH bars are hands creations. They are hand mixed, hand poured, hand cut, hand wrapped. So you gotta stick with the hand-job theme.

Saying that your hands have this marvellous inability to mass-produce and retain lather. So why you keep trying to use them, over and over, to make lather? I know, bella you wanna touch that bar. There is something deeply satisfying about literally scrubbing the dirt off yourself. It's not just physical, it's psychological.
Surely indulge time to time, the truth is alas if you want your soap bar last longer you’ve gotta wash smarter by using a washcloth or mesh/loofah sponge. Get it soapy once with a couple good rubs of the bar, and then put the bar away.  The washcloth/sponge will absorb the lather and keep it going for you, so you can keep on washing but use far less soap.
