Yes, You Should Provide Bath Salts

If you have bathtubs in your rooms, as opposed to just shower stalls, you should be providing bath salts as part of your standard bathroom amenities.

We know you’re now wondering “What exactly are bath salts and why would my guests want them?”

Good question. Frankly, we didn’t know much about them either, so we did a bit of research. It turns out bath salts are a good idea. And not just for cosmetic reasons.

Advocates of bath salts swear by their relaxing properties. “The benefits of bath salts extend way beyond your time in the tub – after your bath, you will feel calm, relaxed, and happy,” notes one seller’s page.

And the point isn’t whether you believe the claims or not, whether you think that’s just so much marketing or if the salts really do have those effects. The point is, you have guests who do use bath salts, and if that’s the effect they get, they’ll greatly appreciate your providing bath salts for their stay.

After all, you provide coffee even to non-coffee drinking guests, right?

There’s really no downside to bath salts. They’re not expensive. They’re not hazardous, not poisonous, and they’re the essence of simplicity to use.

People who take baths first thing in the morning, and use bath salts, report that they help start the day of with focus and energy. Again, whether or not they do that for you personally, if they do provide that extra boost for some guests, it’s worth it to supply bath salts for them to get a better start to their day.
