 Some therapeutic benefits of a Salt bath:

Salt is essential to life -- we carry a replica of the ancient ocean in our blood. Salt restores the natural alkaline balance crucial to health and well being.

Pink Sherpa Himalayan Salt:

Himalayan Salt is mined by hand from deep within the Himalayan Mountains, the tallest mountain range in the world. Himalayan salt is harvested from the heart of the Himalayan Mountains, and is known in many circles by another name: "white gold". Having formed over the last 250 million years, it is the purest salt in the world - amazingly pure and virtually untouched by any pollutants and toxins. For thousands of years, the salt has been used as a main ingredient in baths, body scrubs, drinks, and foods and has been revered for its unique crystalline beauty, its medicinal properties, and unique taste.

The gorgeous pink color stems from it's naturally high content of wholesome essential minerals, of which our bodies are made and require for well being. Himalayan salt is reported to contain 84 elements that naturally occur in the ocean as well as in our bodies. Himalayan salt is naturally rich in nutrients and elements, and each perfectly formed crystal contains crucial minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Iron.

Epsom Salt: is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.
Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits. In addition, it has been known to heal cuts and reduce soreness from childbirth which is added to our *post-partum sitz bath*


Healing benefits of Minerals:

Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening.
Magnesium is essential to the healthy functioning of all living cells and is the 11th most abundant element in the human body. Magnesium has been used in anesthetics, sports medicine for relief of tired, sore, inflamed muscles, soothing back pain and aching limbs, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating cold and congestion, and drawing toxins from the body.

Naturally occurring sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches. The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. The skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it.
