Joyful Bath cleans up in Hollywood
Not even a year ago, bath-lover Rochel Roland created Joyful Bath Co. out of a need for good bath salts to soothe her aching muscles (she's a speed skater too). Now the Kensington resident is getting ready for a September trip to Hollywood for Emmy week. Her all-natural concoctions have not only helped her aching muscles, they've soothed the psyches of celebs like Brooke Shields, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Barry and others as part of Hollywood Moms Swag Bags. (I was the lucky Twitter winner of Ginger Snap, which I love post-workout.) The Citrus Buzz salts were inside The Buzz Girls swag bag at the "Confessions of a Shopaholic" DVD premiere bash. The Bath Mixologist has a background in earth sciences and mixes eco- and skin-friendly ingredients like oatmeal, vanilla and lavender with natural sea and Epsom salts that other eco-minded souls are snapping up by the bucket. What's next? Oprah? Well, yes. The talk show host is one of many high-profile celebs that will get a gift box containing Joyful Bath salts among the swag presented by Grammy-givers Distinctive Assets. Visit the Bethesda showroom on Wednesdays; see the bath salts 24/7 here.
