Bring the benefits of natural Salt to your Bath

For thousands of years, salt baths have been regarded as a medicinal therapy. Hippocrates (460-370 BC) first discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater and salt baths when he saw the effect it had on the injured hands of fisherman; improving pain and infections.

The healing powers of salt baths are still valued today and have countless well documented health benefits. For me, the three best salts to soak in are Epsom Salt, Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt.

Your skin is an excretive organ that mirrors the condition of your intestines. Unlike regular baths, which pull moisture from the skin, the upper layer of the skin absorbs and holds salt from the natural salt bath, binding water and bringing moisture into the skin. The skin's natural protective layer is maintained and keeps the skin from drying out. In addition, toxins and bacteria from the body are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the trace minerals from the salt are absorbed through the skin.

If you are a sensitive person, work with or are around a lot of people, there is a tendency to 'pick up' energy from others and hold it in your energy field. Adding natural salt to the bath has the additional advantage of cleansing the emotional body.

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is rich in both magnesium and sulphate. While both magnesium and sulphate can be poorly absorbed through the stomach, studies show increased magnesium levels from soaking in a bath enriched with Epsom salt. Magnesium and sulphate are both easily absorbed through the skin.

Dead Sea Salt

Dead Sea Salt is super rich in minerals, including magnesium, calcium, sulphur, bromide, iodine, sodium, potassium and zinc, which are easily absorbed by the skin.

Himalayan Salt

Himalayan salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body, a few of which include sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Getting the most from your Salt Bath

I use a cup of salt for a ¾ full bath, although more can be added if required.

When taking a saltwater bath, aim to get the temperature as close to body temperature as you can, so a warm bath, not hot!! Your body is approximately 37° Celsius or 97° Fahrenheit.

Spend at least 20 mins soaking in the bath to enjoy the benefits.

Salt baths can make you thirsty so its important to stay hydrated and take a glass of water in with you and drink plenty afterwards to continue to flush out any toxins.

People with heart problems or high blood pressure should consult a doctor before taking a salt bath.

Essential Oils

The benefits listed above can be enhanced further with the addition of therapeutic grade essential oils. So not only do you get the detoxing effect of the salt but the properties of the specially selected oils.

I’ve had several requests from clients to make up Bath Salts that they can use in between treatments to further promote body wellness. These can now be purchased from Ahmyo Healing. The Bath Salts are made up of Epsom Salt, Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Salt.

I have 3 varieties to choose from, each containing a combination of my favourite Young Living essential oils and blends. Each one aids in relaxing and improving mood....perfect for those days when you’re holding a stick and everyone looks like a piñata!!
