Did you know that Hippocrates (referred to as the father of Western medicine) was known to encourage his patients to bathe in warmed seawater, as he discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater by observing the healing affects it had on the injured hands of fishermen. This treatment is called thalassotherapy (the medical use of sea water / salt water as a form of therapy). Soak in the purest salts on earth ……

PLEASE NOTE: While Himalayan bath salts have a positive effect, they may also be demanding on your circulatory system and if you suffer from a poor heart circulatory system, please consult your doctor first.
What about aromatherapy?
Try placing your rock salt crystals in a zip lock bag, with some of your favourite essential oils or fragrance, shake well and let sit overnight. Then place the rock salt crystals (with essential oils) in a glass or ceramic bowl in your bathroom, family room or anywhere you’d love a beautiful ambience and fragrance.
Every month or so, add more oils and shake or simply stir the salt. Enjoy the benefits of the negative ions and the beautiful aromatherapy oils. You can also use it for bathing. DO NOT consume internally and keep out of reach of animals and small children.
How about making some Homemade Bath Salts
Why not make up a simple bath salts recipe, pop it in a Mason jar or something similar and give it as a gift? The natural pink colour of the HImalayan salt is pleasing to the eye and is all that you need as far as colouring goes.
How do you do it? It’s easy ….
3 cups Epsom Salts
1 1/2 cups HImalayan Sea Salt (or whatever salt you prefer)
1/2 cup baking soda
20 drops essential oil (Lavender for calming bath)*
Mix together in a glass bowl and store in a glass jar**. Use 1/2 cup (or more if you wish) in your bath water for a beautiful relaxing bath.
*We don’t recommend using ‘hot’ essential oils in the bath, eg peppermint, clove.
**There has been an occasional report of glass jars exploding with baking soda so poke a few holes in the lid of your glass jar to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.
