BRIMFIELD — Although Nancy Peloquin has only been making bath salt products for a few years, she has enjoyed a great deal of success and is considering selling her creations in the future.

The 26-year Brimfield resident was announced by the Brimfield Council on Aging (BCOA) as its February Artist of the Month, but she wasn't able to visit the BCOA that month due to illness. On Thursday morning, Peloquin appeared for her rescheduled session and demonstrated to guests how she goes about making bath salts.

"I only make products with 100-percent natural ingredients for therapeutic value," Peloquin said. "I don't use any artificial preservatives."

Since different kinds of salts treat a wide assortment of skin conditions, Peloquin makes products featuring several ingredients. For example, her Dead Sea salts are excellent for individuals suffering from conditions like eczema, while other types of salt have been praised for their exfoliation benefits. Bath salts have gained popularity in the United States due to their ability to change the osmotic balance of water and ensure that bathers absorb less water in their skin through the process of osmosis, thereby reducing the degree of skin wrinkling that is often experienced after prolonged exposure to water.
