The world's first day spa was set up by Cleopatra on the shores of the Dead Sea. She is known as “woman who time could not wither” referred to her charm, beauty and mind. Many people follow after her to take on the benefit of sea salt spa. It is proven and testified to have great points not just for the body but also mind, our overall well-being. It is hailed for the health-enhancing minerals, therapeutic properties, and all-natural harvesting process.
There are countless types of bath salt such as Epsom salt and Sea salt. Most are questioning the difference between those two. Epsom salt contains only naturally occurring minerals which are magnesium and sulphate. However, sea salt baths contain much more minerals and are purely taken from the sea, especially if it’s using the traditional method of harvesting sea salt. This also differs from the price range and why Epsom salts are more affordable.
Bath salt is water-soluble, minerals that have been pulverised are added to water to be used for bathing. Adding 50 gr of sea salt to the bath can decreases stress, helps insomnia, offers vital healing properties, soothes menstrual pain, stimulates circulation, eases muscle cramps, helps relieve stiffness in joints, aids with arthritis or back pain, Plus it helps cleanse, detoxify and moisturizes the skin which is the largest organ in the body. Another way is to add a 25 gr sea salt bath to a basin for feet soak, it helps to soothe muscles, hydrates skin, and relieves aches and pains due to standing for hours or walking in uncomfortable shoes. Plus, letting your feet soak in a nice warm sea salt bath for 15 to 20 minutes can reduce swelling and prevent bacteria from settling into blisters and cuts or under toenails.
Adding on, bath salt has its own “flavours” that give more advantages. The most common are lavender and rose. Lavender gives out that soothing, calming relaxation sensation and is believed to treat anxiety, fungal infections, allergies, depression, insomnia, eczema, nausea, and menstrual cramps. Also, it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Rose has been used in beauty products for thousands of years, suited to improve complexion and reduce skin redness. The antibacterial properties help reduce acne and puffiness. Not just that, roses have a great familiar sweet scent that brings out romantic and lovely feelings, flattering for night baths. Let’s grab some sea salt bath, run the warm water into your bath and enjoy the same spa sensation as Cleopatra.
