Ancient cures still prove their effectiveness in our modern times. In this article I’ll discuss the mystical healing power of sea minerals: Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Potassium, Sulfur, Phosphorus, Sodium, Lithium and many more. Cleopatra VII was known for her perfect looking skin. Over 2000 years later we still value the salts that were of great importance in her beauty routines.
One of the most popular ways to feed your body with the minerals of the sea is by taking a bath. Taking a sea saltbath is like creating a wellness resort in your own home. It has curative properties for skin diseases like eczema or psoriasis. And even if you don’t have troubled skin it’s just very detoxifying and stress relieving.
Other benefits of sea salt baths:
- Exfoliants the skin
- Reduces muscle pain and stiffness
- Will balance skin moisture
- Eliminate toxins
Add 2 cups of sea salt water to your bathing water. Optional you can also add different essential oils like lavender (for relaxation) of eucalyptus (to find relief during a cold).
Since a bath can be warm and exhausting I like to keep myself hydrated with some tea or refreshing fruits. Make sure the bathroom is cleaned up so you can clean your head. For extra coziness you can light some candles or even an incense stick. Take this moment for yourself to meditate and relax. Not only your skin but also your mind will soak up the rewards of the sea minerals. It’s a wonderful health promoting ritual. Enjoy!
