Dead Sea Salt

Dead Sea Salt has been used by many people throughout history for many reasons, ranging from cosmetic to medicinal.  Many people in today’s world still visit the Dead Sea for therapeutic reasons and use bath salts and other products made with salt from the Dead Sea. 
Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the curing power of Dead Sea baths and its therapeutic effects.
There are many benefits of using Dead Sea Bath Salts and Soaks, I found a good list of those benefits on, in the article The Benefits of Dead Sea Salt.
• It is more effective in cleaning and exfoliating the skin as compared to most soap products.
• It gets rids of toxins from the skin and helps in good blood circulation.
• It gets rid of dead skin cells, cleans skin pores and helps in skin regeneration.
• It helps firm up skin tissues and strengthens these against infections.
• It helps eliminate aches and body pains, making the body more relaxed.
• It helps in treating skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis and lessens inflammation of dry skin.
• It helps relieve muscle tension, lessens stress and anxiety.
Overall the good benefits of using Dead Sea salts lead to a more rejuvenated and healthy looking skin.

The bath salt soaks that I make are a mixture of Dead Sea Salt and mineral salt (commonly referred to as Epsom Salts) with a blend of eucalyptus and mint oils.  If you are interested in trying a Dead Sea Salt Bath Soak take a look at the ones I make:
