These delicious little wonders are the perfect thing when you are in need of a sea salt bath. Sea salt baths have been used for centuries to aid in curing various aliments and help the body to stay in balance. Aromatherapy bath salts takes it to the next level by adding in the perfect scent to your relaxing bath. First lets talk about why sea salts baths then we will discuss why you want to consider aromatherapy.
Sea salt is a part of who we are literally. We are made up of 70% or more saline water. Sea salt works in conjunction with other minerals to make our bodies perform all the necessary functions for survival. This is why it’s so essential. Now that main way we take advantage of it is through eating it on our food, but another way to do so is through a sea salt bath. Here the body can absorb all the minerals that come hand in hand with the sea salt, right through the skin. The body can then put these minerals to use as it does with all the other beneficial elements that it takes in.
Aromatherapy also addresses the body but in addition to that it works on the level of the emotions, the mind and the spirit. Scents are correlated with certain bodily reactions meaning that you can use them for such things as distressing, unwinding, relaxing and even energizing. Each scent has a particular flavor and knowing what you need when can be really helpful.
So putting aroma in the form of essential oils in combination with sea salts makes perfect sense. That is why we see bath bombs, sea salt scrubs, sea salt baths and other salty body delights in spas and on the market today. They are a real treat for the body, mind and soul.
