Himalayan Bath & Spa Salts

Salt harvested from the Himalayan Mountains is unlike any other salt, unique in both its majestic beauty and in the benefits it provides. If you add pure and natural Himalayan salts to your bath you will notice the difference immediately. When mixed with water, these salts create an environment that mimics the most ancient seas on Earth, bringing the magic of the Himalayas right into your own home. When you soak in a Himalayan salt bath, the minerals and nutrients in the salt are delivered to your cells in the form of “ions”, making it easier for your body to absorb and utilize them. Himalayan bath salts can improve the texture, tone and appearance of your skin, combat water retention, promote sinus health, prevent muscle cramping and soreness, regulate sleep, and even decrease stress.

Common Skin Disorders
Acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, scabies and seborrhea are some of the most common – and unpleasant – skin disorders suffered by Americans today.  Acne is caused by many factors and many involve internal processes such as stress and hormone fluctuations. Dead Sea salt is high in sulfur, and sulfur is a powerful cleanser that has been proven to treat acne effectively. Dry skin is also all too common. Our skin becomes parched as a result of climate and lack of moisture, especially in the cold, dry months of winter. Dead Sea water is a wonderful treatment for dry skin, as it nourishes the skin and replenishes much-needed moisture.

Research has proven that soaking regularly in water enriched with Dead Sea salt can provide relief from these unpleasant skin disorders without any side effects. In fact, Dead Sea salt has been recommended by the international psoriasis community and the National Psoriasis Foundation as an effective alternative treatment for the disorder.

Skin Allergies
At some stage in our lives we all have suffered from rashes, sores, hives, itching, contact dermatitis or some form of allergic reaction. The high magnesium and bromide content in Dead Sea Salt is beneficial as an anti-allergic due to its cleansing and detoxifying of the skin. Soaking in a bath filled with the mineral-rich salt a wonderful way to treat skin allergies and rashes.

Skin Aging
Research into general Dead Sea benefits and the minerals found in Dead Sea Salt has shown a 40% reduction in the depth of the wrinkling. The minerals also moisturize, detoxify and soften the skin and enhance relaxation of the body – making us not only look but feel younger. 

Rheumatologic Conditions
Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, bursitis etc. have all been effectively treated with Dead Sea salts and Dead Sea mud. The Dead Sea minerals are absorbed while you soak in a bath or apply the salts in mud form and are known to provide effective relief from joint swelling, soreness and stiffness. This is due to the minerals improving blood circulation, which is necessary in reducing inflammatory response. This is combined with powerful detoxifying agents and general muscle relaxant properties. When the mud or water containing the salt has been heated, the ability of the elements to penetrate and be absorbed into the system is increased.

Stress

Your blood pressure will drop, your muscles will relax. Not to mention, you’ll have a moment alone! Time out for you and from the demands of the day is extremely important. Bathing in sea salts also works by increasing circulation and detoxifying your body by removing byproducts, which are formed during the stress.

Insomnia
It is estimated that 25% of Americans suffer from insomnia. Prolonged sleep disturbance can leave you feeling tired and run down, which in turn can lead to greater vulnerability to illness and disease. Soaking in a hot bath cleanses and relaxes the body, making it easier to sleep without interruption. To assist with relaxing in order to fall asleep and to remove toxins, the Dead Sea bath salts and mud treatments can be very beneficial.

Hair Loss
Yes, even hair loss can be treated through the use of Dead Sea salts. Both men and women experience hair loss as a result of heredity, diet, hormone fluctuation, nutritional deficiencies and age. Rubbing Dead Sea salts into the scalp has been shown to improve circulation and stimulate hair re-growth.

Controlled Studies

A series of clinical research studies have been conducted in order to evaluate the effectiveness of Dead Sea salts as treatment for psoriasis. According to several published studies, about 80% – 90% of psoriasis patients visiting the Dead Sea for treatment are either completely cured or significantly improve. Most of us don’t have the time or the money to travel to the Dead Sea; as a result more studies have been conducted to test the effectiveness of Dead Sea salts when used at home. The results indeed show that Dead Sea salts are effective in improving the symptoms of psoriasis – take a look for yourself!

International Journal of Dermatology
a 1999 study published in the International Journal of Dermatology tested one hundred patients with psoriasis who sought treatment in the Dead Sea. 75% of these patients were clear of their condition after four weeks of on-site treatment. Of this group, 68% remained clear (in remission) through 4 months, and 43% were clear after six months.

Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
In a 2003 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, twenty seven patients traveled to the Dead Sea for treatment of plaque psoriasis. The treatment consisted of daily bathing in the Dead Sea and controlled sunlight exposure. 48 percent of the twenty-seven patients were cleared of psoriasis completely and stayed in remission. The other 41 percent demonstrated a positive response to the treatment.

Israel: Dr. Zvi Even Paz
In 1989, Israeli dermatologist Dr. Zvi Even Paz conducted a study to evaluate the effects of Dead Sea Salts on 50 psoriasis patients. It had already been established that bathing in the Dead Sea itself brought relief, but it was not known if the Dead Sea salts would have the same effect when used in different environments (such as a bathtub).
47 of the 50 patients experienced significant relief after soaking in a bath containing Dead Sea salts. The best results came to those who soaked in two pounds of salts (divided into 3 baths) three times a week for six weeks.

Germany: Dr. J. Arndt
Dr. J. Arndt conducted a controlled study involving 50 psoriasis patients, between 14 and 77 years of age. All patients were treated using Dead Sea salts in partial or full baths and were treated with the salts in a controlled way. In a full bath, 2 kgs. of the salts were dissolved in a bath at a temperature of 27 C. The partial baths were made with a concentration of about 10%. The baths lasted for 20 minutes and followed by a rinse. The patient remains in a warm, packed condition after the bath to enhance the effect of the salts.

The treatment lasted for 3-4 weeks, with 3-4 baths per week. Within only one week of treatment, symptoms diminished, including itching and scaling joints. Other symptoms such as spread, redness and infiltration continued to decrease. Improvement was steady- after four weeks, patients were clear of all symptoms.

The symptom patients were most concerned about was itching, and they were thrilled to be relieved in less than one week. Sleeping disturbances go hand in hand with the itching and are widespread in psoriasis patients – and sleep also improved in Dr. Arndt’s study.

Both patients and physicians in the study interpreted the drastic decrease in discomfort and scaling within one week.

Healing was complete in 27 patients (54%), and in the other 22 cases, there was vast improvement in their condition. Tolerance to the treatment was excellent in all patients involved in the study, and none of the participants experienced any side affects whatsoever, dermatological or otherwise.
