The Importance Of Dead Sea Salt




  Magnesium is important for both combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). 

So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism

Salt is not only essential to life but it is necessary for good health. Human blood contains 0.9% salt-sodium chloride, the same saline solution used medically to cleanse wounds. Salt maintains the electrolyte balance inside and outside the cells.

Therapeutic benefits of bathing in salts have been known for centuries. King Solomon presented the Queen of Sheba with dead sea salts on her visit to the Holy Land. Cleopatra was a frequent user of beauty formulations including bath salts.

Sea salt is beneficial to the skin. Skin absorbs sea salts, vitamins and any other substances it comes into contact with. It is universally accepted that sea salts can have a wonderful effect on circulation and metabolism.

So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salts could replenish the minerals vital to our skin metabolism. Combining bath salts and essential oils together creates a synergistic blend of  therapeutic proportions. When combined with the relaxing properties of hot water the benefits increase again. Aromatic baths can provide relief from stress and anxiety, assist with joint and muscle pain, and treat the symptoms of more severe skin conditions. The therapeutic benefits of salt baths are well known and often recommended by doctors for treating a wide range of medical conditions.

Each ingredient in bath salts has a specific therapeutic benefit. For example baking soda assists sea salts in detoxification of heavy metals and radiation, also for soothing itchy skin.
