Mormon Woman Builds Bath Salts Business
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Deena Pyle, the creator and owner of a
company called Mosaic Bridges, believes in the value of rituals and
the use of bathing as a ceremony.
With this in mind, the Draper, Utah woman has developed a line of
bath products based on the ancient Asian concept of chakra. Chakra, a
Sanskrit word meaning "wheel of light," relates to the centers of
energy located along a person's body - from the base of the spine to
the crown of the head.
Pyle's red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet - colored
chakra salts are meant to focus on specific areas of the body. The
orange chakra, for example, centers on the vicinity near a person's
navel, she says. The BYU graduate has a long standing interest in
natural healing and has combined that discipline with metaphysical
and spiritual healing. Pyle produces the chakra salts, which are
made from Great Salt Lake salts, food coloring and natural
oils, in the basement of her home overlooking the Salt Lake Valley.
