The benefits of bath salts on the body

A source of minerals and trace elements, bath salts are renowned for their remineralizing power. Mineral deficiency is common and affects all skin types as well as hair, resulting in a lack of hydration and firmness of the skin. Bath salts act as a mineral supplement for the epidermis and provide healthier, younger-looking skin. In fact, their components increase the skin's defenses, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and promote the drainage of fluids. Excellent for heavy and tired legs! Do not hesitate to immerse your hair to regain hair shine.

As each salt has specific properties depending on the concentration of minerals and trace elements present, we can associate, among others, Dead Sea salt with moisturizing properties and Himalayan salt with detoxifying properties. and Maras salt with energizing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Additionally, bath salts have a remarkable ability to treat and soothe skin irritations, including psoriasis and eczema. They are also well appreciated by irritated skin to relieve itching and promote effective healing. A great way to soothe the skin during the changing seasons and prepare for the arrival of the hot season!

For a long time, salts have been used to relieve pain related to joints and tensions (muscle cramps, arthritis, rheumatism, back pain). Their components, notably magnesium, give them this ability to relax muscles and reduce inflammation. This is why you feel so good and relaxed after a hot bath with bath salts.

The benefits of bath salts on the mind

The bath is above all a privileged moment to relax, but also to take care of yourself. Goodbye fatigue and tension! Beyond its benefits for the physical state, bath salt acts on well-being by reducing stress and encouraging letting go. The liberating effect on the mind can greatly contribute to reducing psycho-emotional symptoms such as anxiety, anguish, worry... In addition to hot water, a salt bath is a real moment of relaxation, promoting falling asleep and a peaceful night's sleep. This is why it is ideal to take a bath in the evening, before going to bed. Perfect this moment of relaxation with lit candles and soothing music.


Enhancing bath salts with essential oils

The addition of essential oils to bath salts is common in order to increase their relaxing power. The oils are then chosen according to their desired therapeutic effects.
