The skin is the largest organ of elimination in the human body, hot water opens the pores, thus a salt bath allows for a natural and enjoyable release of toxins. This may account for the many reported therapeutic benefits:
– Alkalizes tissues – reducing acidity in body
– Re-mineralization of body
– Increased Circulation
– Deep Relaxation
– Increased Oxygenation of tissues & cells
– Effective treatment for skin irritations, (psoriasis, eczema and dry skin problems)
Many ancient cultures have incorporated natural mineral salt baths in their rituals for healing and cleansing. The website for Grail springs spa, states that a salt bath on a New Moon has the same cleansing effect as a 3 day fast. I don’t know about you, but I would definitely prefer to have a salt bath!
