Himalayan Bath Salts 1kg
If you are feeling weary and washed-out, why not indulge your senses in a nice warm Himalayan salt bath just before bedtime? This is a truly therapeutic and rejuvenating experience for your body, mind and soul. The good news is that you can achieve such detox, healing and relaxation effect in the comforts of your own home – simple, safe and affordable. Moreover, the Himalayan pink salt is said to be the purest form of natural salt on Earth today. It is mined from ancient oceans deep in the geologic veins of the Himalayan Mountains, which has been protected from human pollutions. It contains 84 nourishing trace elements and minerals that cannot be found in regular processed table salt.
Having regular Himalayan salt baths can easily boost your immunity, regulate your pH balance, fight off infections such as viral and bacterial assaults on the skin and body, and many more benefits… Did you know that the detox effect of having a warm Himalayan salt bath is equivalent to fasting for 3 days? The beauty of Himalayan bath salt benefits lies not just with absorbing minerals through your skin, but in enjoying this therapeutic routine as a practical step to long-term wellness.
How to Prepare a Himalayan Salt Bath?
You may not always have the time or the luxury to have regular visits to the spa. But the great thing about a Himalayan salt bath is that you can enjoy it at home with no fussy preparation involved. In fact you can tailor your salt water bath depending on your needs.
For an Intense Himalayan Salt Detox Bath
A salt bath for intense detoxification requires more salt than skin treatment. The ideal bath water temperature should be around 36 degrees Celsius as it allows maximum absorption and make you sweat, without being too straining on the body. The concentration of the salt bath should be the same as our body fluids, i.e. 1% salt solution. This translates to about 30 grams of Himalayan bath salt per 4 litres of water. The average house tub can hold about 114 litres of water, for that volume around 1.2kg of salt should do.
Caution: The hot detox bath is fairly demanding on the circulatory system so do consult your doctor first if you have underlying medication conditions. It is not recommended for people with high blood pressure. Shower and wash thoroughly before soaking in the bath for not more than 30 minutes. If you feel dizzy or light headed, cool the tub with cold water or place a wet cold cloth over your head. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water.
When you are finished, get out of the tub slowly. You will probably feel tired and your muscles will be relaxed to the point of some weakness. Hence, do rest for 30 minutes after the bath. It is not necessary to rinse off with water after the soak. Just pat yourself dry with a soft towel.
For a Gentle Salt Bath for Relaxation or Treatment of Skin Problems
You can use a lower concentration of bath salt compared to the intense detox bath. The ideal amount of salt for a normal salt bath to soften and nourish the skin is about 200 grams per bath. Run a bath and make it pleasantly warm. The ideal bath water temperature should be around 36 degrees Celsius. Dissolve the Himalayan bath salts while the tub is filling to ensure that the salt is evenly mixed. Dim the lights and turn on some relaxing music. Get ready to get comfy, get in the tub and soak your body for 30 minutes.
You can even create your own unique salt bath combined with the soothing and relaxing effects of aromatherapy by adding a teaspoon of your favourite essential oils or natural extracts (such as vanilla, lavender, citrus, mint or sandalwood). This helps to create a favourable and comforting atmosphere where you can truly relax.
When you’re in the bathtub, take time to love every moment of it, this gives you ample time to think of what you want to do for the next day or what you want to prioritise for the week. There’s a mind-body connection to all of this, a salt bath can help quiet down your anxiety and relax your whole nervous system, this can help you think more rationally and be more aware of your emotional needs. You will feel like you’re wrapped in this positive afterglow, and beyond just feeling good about yourself, a salt bath will make your skin smell amazing and feel very supple to the touch.
