PLEGMATIC bath salt calming + better night sleep
With organic crushed hops, valerian root, Tasmanian pepper berries and Lavender
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.
Inspired by The Four Temperament Theory - a proto-psychological theory that suggests that there are four fundamental personality types:
SANGUINE, PHLEGMATIC, MELANCHOLIC and CHOLERIC
we recreated the feel and essence of each personality type lover. All you need to do Bella is get into your Sunday best...nude.
Based on the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire, and their accompanying qualities of cold, hot, moist, and dry, the concept of the four bodily humors originated with the ancient Greek philosophers Aristotle, Hippocrates, and Galen. A foundational principle of medieval and Elizabethan cosmology, more recently, the humors have influenced modern psychology’s personality tests.
To learn more check section HUMORISM down below.
- Humor: Phlegm
- Element: Water
- Season: Autumn
- Age: Maturity
- Qualities: Cold & Wet
- Organ: Brain
- Planet: Moon
- Modern personality type: Rational or INFP in Myer-Briggs
Phlegmatic who’s looking for interpersonal harmony and close relationship, is highly emotional, which means that sex is not merely a mechanical physical undertaking. Don’t be surprised if they aren't into casual flings or animalistic sex; rather it is expected to be a poetic act of beauty and love. If you’re going to get naked with a Phlegmatic, prepare yourself for an intense ride. And perhaps some post-coital crying.
Intuitive and nurturing, receptive and governed by their emotions they are a walking vortex of dreamy nostalgia and repressed feels.
A STRANGE NOTE TO A LOVER
If your lover is PHLEGMATIC what would you write to him/her?
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 soak.
Oh, babe you so deserve it!
Read the note to a PHLEGMATIC lover inside on each bottle...a strange note indeed.
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 principles of Chinese medicine, herbalism, and aromatherapy, we have sourced the most powerful, active ingredients to create our range of four bath soaks from an exceptional blend of salts + botanicals + essential oils.
Each salt is remarkable in its own right, possessing its own distinctive character and purpose to help you achieve your wellness goals.
Get tripping, babe!

The Greek physician Hippocrates (c. 460 – c. 370 BC) described the four temperaments as part of the ancient medical concept of humorism, that four bodily fluids affect human personality traits and behaviours.
SANGUINE - blood (sanguis)
PHLEGMATIC - phlegm
MELANCHOLIC black bile (melas - "black" + kholé“ - bile”)
CHOLIRIC - yellow bile (kholé)
Next, Galen (131-200 AD) developed the first typology of temperament in his dissertation De Temperamentis, and searched for physiological reasons for different behaviours in humans.
In ‘The Canon of Medicine’, Avicenna (980-1037) then extended the theory of temperaments to encompass "emotional aspects, mental capacity, moral attitudes, self-awareness, movements and dreams.”
Physician Nicholas Culpeper (1616–1654) disregarded the idea of fluids as defining human behaviour, and philosophers Maimonides (1135–1204) and Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), psychotherapist Alfred Adler(1879–1937), and physiologist Ivan Pavlov (1849–1936) all theorised on the four temperaments and greatly shaped our modern theories of temperament.
Hans Eysenck (1916–1997) was one of the first psychologists to analyse personality differences using a psycho-statistical method (factor analysis), and his research led him to believe that temperament is biologically based.
The four humors 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.
Modern medical science does not define a fixed relationship between internal secretions and personality, and modern psychology is not much kinder to four temperaments concept and, in general, dismisses most personality theories altogether. Despite that, usage of terms — sanguine, phlegmatic, choleric, and melancholic — persists in both scientific and everyday language.
However 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 Jung’s (or Myer Briggs personality types) were based on a completely different typing system, description of their 16 types is very similar to four basic types
Jung’s Equivalents for Each Personality Type Pure Temperaments:
- Sanguine - ESFP
- Phlegmatic - INFP
- Choleric - ENTJ
- Melancholic - ISTJ

1. Fill bath tub with WARM 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!
