Sea salts enhance the physical and emotional benefits of bath time. People have bathed in the mineral-rich seas for centuries to promote good health and beautiful skin. Bathing in salt water reduces muscle and joint inflammation, relaxes muscles and relieves pain and soreness. Salt water hydrotherapy can stimulate circulation, increase moisture retention, hydrate the skin, detoxify the skin and promote cellular regeneration. A sea salt bath provides a feast of minerals for the skin, while stimulating the elimination of toxins.
We use Dead Sea and Bali Reef Salt to make our Aromatherapy Bath Salts. Dead Sea Salts are highly prized for their unique high concentrations of magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium, which help to provide relief from muscle aches and pains as well as dry skin. 2000 years ago Flavius, a Roman historian, commented that, “Dead Sea Salt cannot be praised too highly…travelers take this salt home because it heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines.” Bali Reef Salts are produced using an ancient method in which sea water is placed in canal systems (made of tree trunks) for evaporation, then the solid salt crystals are dried by a coconut husk fire and finally the sea salt crystals are sun-dried again; they are believed to have the power to purify and sanctify. Bali Reef Salts have a unique geometric crystal shape (almost like a pyramid), are natural grey in color, and easily absorb our pure essential oils.
