6 Reasons You Should Stop Everything And Detox With A Pink Himalayan Salt Mineral Soak

December 15, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty

Himalayan salt: you’re using it to cook meat, season veggies, in Himalayan pink salt lamps that cleanse air and neutralize electromagnetic radiation, and even in cutting boards. But if you’re not taking advantage of the incredible properties of pink Himalayan salt in a detoxing mineral soak, you’re losing out on the chance to do something incredible for your body, mind, and soul.

First, some basics. Pink Himalayan salt is known as a cleaner, healthier alternative to table salt. It contains over 84 minerals and trace elements like magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper, and iron, so in addition to jazzing up your food, it provides major nutritional value. Because it is usually mined by hand, pink Himalayan salt is also pure and contains about 87 percent sodium chloride compared to commercial table salt, which has between 97.5-99.9 percent sodium chloride.

That’s all well and good, but why should you go and dump salt crystals in a bath, you may be wondering? Here are 6 reasons why you should stop everything and detox with a soothing pink Himalayan salt mineral soak.

1) It’s The Ultimate Detox

If you’ve never done a salt detox treatment, there’s no reason not to give yourself a dramatic introduction to the ancient treatment. Dump 1-2 full pounds of Himalayan salt into warm bath water and let it sit for a few minutes. Them climb on in to relax and soak. The salt’s many minerals helps draw out some of the toxins we acquire daily — toxins that can be harmful to our health and that we accumulate through the environment, food, and even skincare and makeup products.

2) It Stimulates Circulation

There’s no better time than the dead of winter to soak in a salt bath. Himalayan salt can stimulate circulation and by causing arteries and veins to expand. When your blood is flowing well, your complexion looks healthier, you’re in a better position to prevent cellulite, and your extremities feel less cold. Salt baths and snowstorms go together like peanut butter and jelly.

3) It Can Relieve Muscle Aches And Pains

Whether you’ve sprained a muscle at the gym or have chronic pain in your back or legs, regular salt bath soaks have been found to help relieve muscle aches and pains. The saline in salt is the key ingredient that reduces inflammation in the body. But you have to commit yourself to regular salt baths to feel lasting results.

4) Salt Baths Can Help You Sleep Better

Add a drop of lavender essential oil into your Himalayan pink salt bath and the natural detoxing effects of salt, combined with an oil that helps promote relaxation, can soothe your mind and help you fall asleep quicker.

5) Salt Baths May Help With Acne And Skin Conditions

The salt in your luxurious bath has antibacterial properties that can cleanse skin and help reduce and soothe acne, eczema, and psoriasis. You may be shocked to notice that your skin doesn’t prune after a lengthy soak in salt — there’s a reason for that. The minerals in Himalayan salt help your skin hold and lock in hydration. Take advantage of this goodness by immediately moisturizing with a natural body lotion and facial serum after your bath.
