Five health benefits of taking a warm salt bath

Unrefined sea salt has the ability to attract and hold water, thereby, boosts the skin’s hydration levels. Furthermore, it helps re-balance the distribution of naturally occurring minerals in the cells, thus, moisturising and strengthening the skin’s barrier.

2. Sedates the nervous system

Sea salt is packed with essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc and bromine. It’s these minerals that make it incredibly calming. It helps sedate the nervous system and drastically lowers stress levels.

3. Slow down skin ageing

The anti-ageing properties of sea salt help it replenish irritated or dull skin. They also help the cell to cell signalling process that promotes a youthful glow and slows down the ageing process.

Sea salt is highly effective at soothing inflammatory skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis and redness due to its balancing effects,.

5. Removes dead skin from the surface

How to take a warm salt bath

  • Run a warm bath – not too hot- and add a good amount of sea salt.
  • Put on some relaxing music to set the mood. If you have, put a plant next to your tub. Plants are shown to help reduce mental stress.
  • Dim the lights and light some candles.
  • Add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil, which has supreme moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties for the skin.
  • Add two drops each of tangerine and sandalwood essential oil. You can also use lemon, bergamot or orange in place of the tangerine. Other than smelling delightful, these oils work as a sedative and soothe the nervous system, reducing anxiety and tension when inhaled. At the same time, they’re uplifting on the mood and will put you in a relaxed, happy state.
