There are many varied benefits to those warm, luxurious soaks many of us love to indulge in. Warm baths aid in dilating your blood vessels and boosting circulation as well as provide relief for those who suffer from back pain, headaches and arthritis. Baths can also aid in detoxifying your body.
Adding enhancements like aromatherapy like natural bath salts can greatly amplify the benefits of a good bath - just ensure you choose your products wisely. Stay away from harsh chemicals and synthetics!
Utilizing mineral bath salts are ideal as they do not leave a soapy residue on the skin and have a multitude of benefits. Celtic sea salt specifically helps to balance the body by infusing their 84 trace minerals into the body’s largest organ, the skin.
What's the Deal with Salt?
I can hear you all asking, “isn’t salt just salt and anything with a fancy name just pretentious salt?” “What are trace minerals and why are they essential to my body?” Don’t worry, I will clarify!
Not all salts are created equally. In other words, the everyday table salt some of us tend to overuse is heavily processed. Everything that was good about the natural salt has been processed out, so all we’re left with is the high blood pressure, and heart disease inducing stuff. While some drug companies may love that we cover our meals in table salt, our bodies certainly don’t like it.
Minerals act as catalysts for many biological reactions within the body, including, muscle response, the transmission of messages through the nervous system and the utilization of nutrients in food. While minerals exist in our bodies, we don’t naturally produce them making us dependent on outside resources like food.
Therapeutic Bath Salts
