The Benefits of Taking a Bath with Dead Sea Salts

ahava mineral bath

I know I've said this before somewhere on this blog, but I will repeat myself- I absolutely, positively love taking baths.  There is nothing like a warm hot bath at the end of the day.  

Besides the relaxation factor, baths can be incredibly beneficial to your health.  I love Ahava's Dead Sea Salt Mineral Bath (as you can see from the below picture, I am almost out!).  I put a couple handful in my tub at the end of a long day (ESPECIALLY when I'm sore from working out).  Taking one of these mineral baths just puts me in a different state of mind- I almost feel like I'm at the spa.  Sure, there are tons of mineral bath options out there, but Ahava's factory is actually in the Dead Sea region.  If you can't make it to the actual Dead Sea, this is the next best thing...

So, what are the benefits?  How is salt from the Dead Sea any different from regular salt?

  • The waters of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their healing properties since ancient times.  Flavius wrote 2,000 years ago that the salts from the Dead Sea heal the human body.
  • Approximately 27% of the Dead Sea is comprised of various salts (as compared to 3 or 4% in normal sea water).  This salt is comprised of magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride, and bromides in addition to just sodium.
  • Softens skin.
  • Increases blood circulation.
  • Detoxifies skin... the minerals extract toxins from your body.
  • Helps alleviate redness and irritation from acne.
  • Reduces muscle aches and pains.
  • Relieves symptoms of psoriasis.
  • Relieves symptoms of osteoarthritis and tendonitis.
  • Heals dry and cracked skin.
  • Some studies say it reduces wrinkles.
