Bathing in dead sea salts infused with essential oils can help restore your body and replenish your soul. For centuries, people have traveled to the Dead Sea to benefit from its healing mineral enriched waters. The Dead Sea, bordering Jordan to the East & Israel and the West Bank to the West, has one of the highest salinity rates, making it one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world. In addition, it also possesses very high mineral contents which science has proven to help heal many health conditions.
Why is it so healthy?
Scientists believe that there is a similarity on a physiological level between our blood plasma and sea water. Human blood contains minerals such as potassium, sodium and chlorine in the same proportions as sea water. Bathing in these conditions helps to restore your body and balance your body chemistry, which includes helping your body to detoxify. The minerals found in Dead Sea salt are known to heal skin tissue, aid metabolism, balance moisture in the skin, reduce water retention, remove toxins, relax muscles and relieve muscle stiffness and cramps. Doctors agree that people with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can benefit from therapy involving dead sea salt baths.
Adding essential oils to a warm bath with Dead Sea bath salts turns this already therapeutic practice into a luxurious mind/body/spirit experience. Plant essential oils too have properties that aid in good health and emotional well-being. Aromatherapists believe that using essential oils properly can help restore the body and soul by improving one's health and vitality. For example, lavender helps treat depression and sleep disorders, citrus scents are uplifting and patchouli is a known aphrodisiac. The benefits of using natural Dead Sea bath salts infused with essential oils for good health and emotional well-being are limitless.Do you have personal blends you find very therapeutic?
