The widely reputed soothing effects of the Dead Sea can now be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home! Bring the salt from the sea to your bathtub for relaxation and relief from skin troubles or daily stresses. The benefits extend well beyond the bath, and SaltWorks® guarantees the purest Dead Sea salt on the market, offered in a selection of grain sizes to ensure you have the ideal fit for your project.
SaltWorks Bokek® Dead Sea Salt is a natural white crystal harvested from the southern Dead Sea in Israel, where the concentration of minerals is the highest. The waters of the Dead Sea are very distinct, having a total salt concentration that is ten times higher than ocean water, reaching 33% versus 3%. The one of a kind composition of this special sea’s brine is uniquely comprised of magnesium, potassium and calcium chloride. Additionally, the Dead Sea has a high concentration of bromides, which all contribute to the renowned healing properties.
This extraordinary composition has made the Dead Sea an ideal spot for people seeking relief from skin and rheumatic disorders, and an equally popular choice for vacationers seeking relaxation. In fact, these soothing waters have a reputation that dates back over 2,000 years to a time when Cleopatra established the world’s first known “Day Spa” on its shores. It is agreed by many health professionals that Bokek Dead Sea Salt is the most therapeutic of all bath salts. Dead Sea salt is popularly used to help ease the symptoms of mild to severe dry skin issues, such as psoriasis and eczema, as well as to help alleviate arthritis, joint and muscle pain. The salt is also utilized for whole body detoxification benefits. With a sodium content of less than 12%, it is gentle on the skin. Its natural skin softeners and muscle relaxing properties make this salt truly exceptional.
When bathing at home, SaltWorks recommends the following regimens: For a deep therapy bath, add 2-4 cups (approximately 1-2 pounds) of salt into a standard-size bathtub and soak for around 20-30 minutes or as long as is comfortable & relaxing for you. Deep therapy baths should be done only a few times per month. Use hot water to aid in detoxification or warm water for maximum absorption of the salt’s nutrients. The detoxification process will pull moisture from your body as it eliminates toxins, so be sure to drink plenty of water to rehydrate yourself while following a bath salt routine.
For everyday bathing, add approximately 1-2 cups of salt into a standard-size bathtub and follow the same instructions. Everyday baths are just as the name suggests – you can enjoy them as often as you would like! For added benefits and enjoyment, try mixing your sea salt with therapeutic oil. Please be aware that Dead Sea salt is prone to absorbing moisture from the air. Be sure to store your salts in an airtight container to avoid clumping.
