THE MANY BENEFITS OF SALT BATHS

A warm salt bath can help soothe aches, reduce inflammation, and heal your skin. Here are 5 ways a simple salt bath can help you feel better.


1. IT IMPROVES YOUR MINERAL BALANCE

Many Americans are deficient in magnesium and sulfate. These naturally occurring minerals are vital for the proper functioning of your body. Fortunately, both of these essential minerals are absorbed through the skin during a salt bath.

2. IT CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP

Not only is a warm bath before bed very relaxing, this study suggests that more magnesium and a warm soak might help reduce those painful nocturnal leg cramps that can disturb your sleep.

3. IT IMPROVES INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONS

If you suffer from skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea, a salt bath will soothe your skin, help slough dead skin cells, the warm water will stimulate blood circulation. This improved circulation may help your skin heal faster. 

4. IT SOOTHES SORE MUSCLES

A salt bath is great after a hard workout. It will help overworked muscles and joints relax and loosen up. Even sore, painful feet will benefit from a good soak in salt water. This relaxing act of self-care can also help by increasing your circulation.

5. IT CAN HELP RELIEVE RHEUMATIC CONDITIONS

Rheumatic diseases affect your joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and muscles. While there is no cure for these conditions, treatments are available. Always make sure to consult with a rheumatologist for the best medication options. Conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis of the knee, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis all respond well to a warm salt bath. In addition to medical treatment, there are ways to cope with rheumatic conditions that are complementary, relaxing, and natural. Try adding an aromatic salt to your next bath.
