Sea Salt Baths
You can purchase Celtic Sea Salt, a true ocean sea salt, directly from Selina Naturally.
There's nothing like a soak at
the end of the day. No longer isolated to use in spas, salt baths are becoming
common practice in homes across America.
A Celtic Salt bath provides a medium for deep relaxation, as well as a feast of
minerals for the skin.
Sam Biser, author of How to
Heal Disease with Salt, says: "The skin is not only an organ of elimination. It
is also an organ of absorption, and that's why salt baths are so healing."
Because Celtic Sea Salt® contains
all the minerals of the ocean, soaking in a bath with it is a powerful remedy
for healthy skin. Paavo Airola, N.D.,
Ph.D, an internationally recognized nutritionist,
says, "Of all natural living waters, salt sea water has the greatest curative
Sea water is extremely rich in all the beneficial minerals." Airola recommends soaking in the ocean because the minerals
in ocean water can be absorbed through the skin. He also says that you can
create your own salt water bath by adding sea salt to a tub half full of water.
Sea salt baths provide your skin
with minerals, but when you use Celtic Sea Salt, you may experience the added
benefit of clay. Celtic Bath Salt is gathered from deeper in the clay basin
than Celtic Sea Salt® and contains more clay.
Clay has long been used,
externally and internally, to help draw out toxins and impurities from the
body. Paul Bergner, author of The Healing Power of Minerals, says that
"externally, clay is such a powerful drawing agent that it will extract not
only poisons, but even objects like splinters from wounds."
At The Grain and Salt Society®,
we have long believed in salt baths. Jacques de Langre,
founder of the company, recommended bathing in salt water as one of the primary
ways of treating disease and malnutrition.
For treatment of illnesses, he
recommended adding four pounds of salt to a lukewarm bath. This much is
necessary, he maintained, to start changing the skin's chemistry. He also said
that the temperature of a healing bath should only be about 2 degrees warmer
than the blood heat.
Hot bath water causes the skin to eliminate instead of
absorb, therefore the minerals of the salt cannot be absorbed into the body;
instead they are eliminated.
If you do
take a hot bath, you can re-mineralize your system by drinking some warm water
with Celtic Sea Salt®, or by taking a Marine Matrix ampule.
If you want to use salt baths on
a regular basis to maintain good health, it is not necessary to use 4 pounds of
salt. In using the Celtic Bath Sea Salt, we recommend two handfuls. This is enough salt to feed the
body with minerals and maintain a condition of health.
Other types of salt
baths like Plantlife Internal Ocean Baths require
less salt because of the synergistic blend of essential oils with mineral
Kosinski, founder of Plantlife,
says that her salt baths are especially potent because the aroma therapeutic
benefits of the essential oils are able to seep into the pores when combined
with the salt and the hot water.
also suggested that the best time of the day to take a bath is in the morning.
He says that when you sleep, the body repairs from the day and pushes acidic
toxins towards the skin.
When you wake in the morning and take a salt bath, you
are able to remove the toxins from your skin, and at the same time, give your
skin a breakfast of minerals.
For the skin "breakfast of champions," dry brush
your skin, take a salt bath, rinse off with cold water, and then dry yourself
vigorously. Then, enjoy your day!
