Nourishing Your body With A Salt Bath Pt.1

Since ancient times, The Dead Sea has been renowned for its therapeutic benefits. Legend has it that Queen Cleopatra would use medicine derived from The Dead Sea for various cures and also used it to soften her skin. 

With so many of us living busy lives, introducing regular salt baths is a beautiful way to relax, detox and soothe the body. In store and online we stock 3 Essential Bath Salts from Westlab (Dead Sea Salt, Epsom Salt & Himalayan Salt) 

Let’s take a closer look at the wonder of Dead Sea Salts and how you can turn your bathroom into a sanctuary.

The Magic of the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea contains 33% salt and an abundance of magnesium and other essential skin minerals. Research has shown that patients with psoriasis who bathed for an hour a day in the Dead Sea improved by up to 88 per cent. 

The Dead Sea waters consist of 21 different minerals including:

  • Magnesium: Great for soothing, protecting, balancing and repairing the skin.
  • Calcium: An antioxidant and cell-renewing.
  • Potassium: Great for balancing the skin's moisture levels
