Breath of Salt

WARNING: While brine baths have a positive effect on many ailments, they are also demanding on your circulatory system. Please consider your age and your health. If you suffer from weak or poor heart circulation, are pregnant or have any health problems, always consult your health professional first.

For the ultimate stress reliever, fill your bath with warm water. Add one cup of Himalayan crystal salt and a few drops of essential oil such as calming lavender or uplifting bergamot. Then sink in for a good long soak. The natural salt will draw impurities out of the skin and the essential oils will give you an aromatherapy vacation.

All natural, untreated and unscented Himalayan Salt Crystals make your bathing experience more pleasurable. This unique Salt will rejuvenate and stimulate your skin according to its needs. It has a strong purifying and re-mineralizing effect; restores the balance of energy levels and provides extreme relaxation.

Bath Salt Crystals are great for aches and pains and they also help to beautify your skin. Add salt crystals in your bathtub and they will dissolve in the water slowly as your tensions of the day also melt away.Your skin is an excretive organ that mirrors the condition of your intestines. When you take a brine bath, the salt minerals penetrate your skin in form of ions. This stimulation will cause natural cell growth in your living cell layers. Bio-energetic weak points will be balanced and your body's energy flow will be activated. While anyone can benefit from a brine bath, it is particularly soothing for those with:

  • Various skin diseases.
  • Rheumatism and joint diseases.
  • A post-operative care regimen.
  • Gynecological diseases.
  • Recurring infections
  • Severe insect bites, blisters or wounds.
  • Skin irritations from poison oak, ivy or sumac.

                 Go ahead- pamper yourself. You deserve it! 

How to prepare for bath:

For standard salt bath add one cup of Himalayan Bath Salt when you start running the water for bath. Most of the Salt Crystal will dissolve by the time the bath is ready. The ideal water temperature is 97-100 degrees (F) in order to match your body’s natural temperature, which allows for maximum transfer of minerals to enter and toxins to be eliminated. You should not use any bath additives, soaps, or oils. Soak yourself for 20-30 minutes. After the bath please do not towel dry or rub dry but let the skin air dry naturally. A 15-20 minute rest is recommended after the bath to allow for final trace minerals to be absorbed through the skin. Once you take your first bath with Himalayan Salt Crystals you will never go back to your ordinary bath salt again. 

Moon Baths

Full Moon Bath
​On the day of the full moon the body’s absorption potentials is at peak. At full moon, the body will absorb the most minerals from the salt bath. Weak points are harmonized and the body’s own energy flow is activated.

New Moon Bath

At new moon the body’s capacity for detoxification is at its highest. This is an ideal time for a cleansing salt bath. The saltwater bath has a "deslagging" effect, similar to a three-day fast. Weight adjustment and decontamination of the body are supported.

For either of the moon phase baths you can use more salt than a regular bath, but you would want to work up to higher amounts gradually over a period of many baths. 

Skin Care

Body Peeling - Do you feel tired and without energy? Make some time and treat yourself to a full body peeling. First take a shower with warm water to open the pores. A body peeling made from a mixture of pure Himalayan salt and oil is ideal for de-toxification. You will achieve the same purifying effect as going on a several day fast. At the same time you will receive an energy boost due to the high concentration of minerals in the salt mixture. The peeling will also enhance the blood circulation in your skin.

Directions for Use: In a little bowl, mix 3.5 Tbs. (50 ml) of pure Himalayan crystal salt with 1 Tbs. (15 ml) of jojoba, rosehip, primrose or other good oil and a quarter tsp (1 ml) of 100% pure essential oil (lavender, or other to suit your taste). Stir the mixture until it is smooth. Lie down on a bath towel and rub your whole body with this mixture. You can enjoy deeper relaxation if somebody else does this for you. Wrap yourself in the towel then cover yourself with a blanket. Keep the peeling for about half an hour. You will experience a warm flow throughout your body, which shows that the body cells began their work. Rinse off the peeling with warm water and gently pat dry your skin. Don't rub it dry. The oil will remain on your skin and make it soft and velvety.
