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 power. 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.

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 want to use salt baths on a regular basis to maintain good health add two handfuls to warm bath water. This is enough salt to feed the body with minerals and maintain a condition of health.

The best time of the day to take a bath is in the morning. 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," do Dry Skin Brushing first, then take a salt bath, rinse off with cold water, and then dry yourself vigorously. Then, enjoy your day!
