The Healing Properties of Bath Salts
Bath salt is a very special type of mineral. It is not a crystal salt, like sea salt or Epsom salt. It is actually a crystal deposit, composed mainly of sodium and magnesium, surrounded by an electrochemical mesh. This gives bath salts its characteristic gray color. The mineral is used to make many different products, from bath salt, to table salt, to supplements for sports drinks and body care products.
Dead Sea salt bath salts have high levels of potassium, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, and chloride. They are said to enhance the pleasure of bathing, improve skin cleansing, and are a carrier for essential oils. Proponents claim that there are some healthy benefits to using bath salts. One of the claims is that because of the high levels of nutrients in the salt, it helps increase the water content in the body, which can help to detoxify and purify the cells in the organs.
While there are many people who say that they do get some benefit from using the salts, most experts do not agree. Most health experts say that there is no proof that they have any effect on healing. There is some evidence that they may help with blood circulation and lymph drainage, and relieve muscle spasms. However, these claims are not backed by adequate scientific data.
Many manufacturers use the term “dead sea salt” to advertise their product. They claim that it contains over one hundred and twenty types of minerals, many of which are beneficial for the skin. Most of the products sold are made from synthetic chemicals, many of which are considered likely to cause allergic reactions. When you add fragrances to the mix, as many companies do, you will find that the product is less effective. In fact, most experts do not recommend any type of topical application of the salts, because of the threat posed by the chemical fragrances.
The benefits that the bath soaps containing dead sea salts can have on foot creams used to treat dry skin are not clear. One study found that topical application of the salts reduced the signs of inflammation. However, the study did not provide enough information to determine whether the reduction in inflammation was caused by the effect of the salts or a general reduction in the inflammatory response to irritants, such as tea and coffee.
There are a number of conditions that bath salts can help to treat, including: athlete’s foot, dermatitis, eczema, contact dermatitis, fungal infections, ringworm, staph infection, varicose veins and wrinkles. All of these conditions can be caused by an increased level of water containing dead sea salts in your body. The problem is that they are naturally occurring at higher elevations than they are at present. You therefore need to take steps to bring them to where they are so that you can enjoy their full benefit. Fortunately, the benefits of the Dead Sea salt bath can be enjoyed in your own home.
Natural healing, as bath salts, have no side effects. However, there are certain precautions that you should take. For instance, you should avoid using them if you are allergic to one or more of the ingredients. In addition, you may want to wear a pair of rubber slippers when you soak in the tub to protect your feet and ankles from the harshness of the water.
There are a number of recipes for the relaxing bath and foot soak that you can use with the Dead Sea salt bath. Two cups of warm bath water, one tablespoon of Epsom salt, two tablespoons of fresh coarsely grated ginger, three cups of half milk, a small pinch of rock salt and two tablespoons of fresh dead sea salt can make a soothing, invigorating soak. Alternatively, you could prepare a recipe for the soothing bath salts by substituting the milk for vegetable oil. All that you need to do is soak your feet in the warm water and add the ginger and Epsom salt. Afterward, you can cover your head in the half mixture and wrap in a towel to completely dry.
