Sea Salt has many therapeutic benefits. The immediate general effects of a sea salt bath are a relaxing and regenerative sensation. Sea salt has the power to detoxify, heal and restore the body to balance. Our bodies contain the same concentration of minerals and nutrients as sea water, so it’s no wonder that sea salt is a natural ally to balance, protect, and restore the body and skin. Reference here.
A Sea Salt bath works by activating the body’s own healing mechanisms, our blood and circulatory systems provide a continual supply of oxygen and nutrients for maintenance alongside immune cells for defense and repair. Researchers indicate improvement on one’s immune system after being submitted to sea salt bath therapy, increasing the natural human healing and defense power. Our handmade in store Sea Salts are blended with therapeutic essential oils such as our Immune Boost and Body Balance blends to increase the healing benefits of the Sea Salt.
Studies also indicate positive mental changes caused by sea salt bath therapy that include peace of mind, increased energy levels, better introspection and an improvement of response to environmental stress. Our restorative mineral rich “Relax” or “Muscle and Joint” sea salts combined with the natural hydrotherapy of a warm bath will relax tired muscles and improve sleep quality.
Sea salts also give an antiseptic effect to the skin and reduces histamine that causes inflammation and itching sensation. The sea salt bath removes toxins and impurities from the skin, promoting relaxation and hydration and helps the body to get rid of toxins and by-products of metabolism via the lymph system, which is valuable in the elimination of trapped fluids around the thighs, knees and ankles.
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. Sea salts contain many minerals beneficial to the body. Magnesium is important for 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 after intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles.
