'What are the health benefits of using Himalayan and Epsom salt?' I hear you ask.
The wonders of salt baths have been well known for hundreds of years and unlike other salts, Himalayan and Epsom salts have a complex combination of minerals which have beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing back pain and aching limbs, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating cold and congestion, and drawing toxins from the body. One of the simplest ways to ease stress and stress-related problems is to soak in a tub full of hot water with a few cups of Salts.
For thousands of years, salt baths have been highly prized medicinal therapies. Hippocrates (460-370 BC) first discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater and salt baths when he saw their healing effects on the injured hands of fisherman – quelling both infection and pain.
The ancient Greeks recommended seaside health resorts to cure skin diseases and the revered 16th century doctor and alchemist Paracelsus even proclaimed that salt baths were ‘better than all the health spas arising out of nature’.
The healing powers of salt baths are still valued to the present day thanks to countless well-documented health benefits. And when choosing a salt to soak in, the pure pink Himalayan variety reigns supreme!
