There is nothing better at the end of a long day than to relax and unwind in a hot bath. Throw in a handful of Pink Himalayan Salts and you can elevate your bath to a healing, restorative and detoxifying experience. Pink Himalayan salts are sourced from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. They are considered to be one of the purest salts in the world. It is believed to have come from the oceans that once surged in that area millions of years ago. Then, when the seabed dried up and the landscape was covered with snow and ice, the salt that sat beneath was protected from pollutants and is consequently one of the purest salts in the world.
The salt is rich in over 80 minerals and the colour is determined by trace minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. The inclusion of minerals and the natural healing benefits that come with saltwater result in a magical remedy for your mind, body and soul.
The magnesium and sulphate found in Himalayan salt helps to soothe aching and tired muscles. Magnesium can also help to regulate the nervous system and assist in pain management. Salt, by nature has antimicrobial and antifungal and antibacterial effects. This will help to heal broken skin, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis or blisters, bites and stings. It is important to wait around 3-4 weeks after a C-section before having a salt bath, or take advice from your midwife.
Himalayan Pink Salt is a powerful detoxifier, as the salt solution helps extract the toxins from your skin and tissues. The Himalayan pink salt penetrates your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and nourished. It is said that soaking in a Himalayan salt crystal bath is like recharging your batteries. As your body organs resonate with the natural frequency of the minerals in the salt bath, your body is being recharged and energized, boosting metabolism and triggering its self-healing powers.
It can leave your skin feeling softer and smoother. The salt gets stored in the upper layer of the skin, plumping it up and creating a natural protective film preventing it from dryness.
A Himalayan salt bath is also a great go-to for those who are struggling with sore muscles. Whether you have put your body through the paces or if you are in recovery, soaking in a Himalayan salt bath can reduce inflammation. Studies have shown that bathing in saline solutions is good for easing the body and the mind, both of which can help soothe tension and tightness that can contribute to muscle pain. It is thought to help strengthen bone, skin and connective tissue thanks to the presence of calcium and other trace minerals.
