The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with far greater concentrations of minerals than any ocean (a concentration of 32% minerals compared to other seas, holding approximately 3%). Bromides and Iodine are known to be present in Dead Sea Salt, along with other minerals in a dried form, such as Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium and Potassium. All these minerals are believed to work together to assist in relaxing the body and soothes to provide a sense of well being .

Our Fine Dead Sea Salt variety is white in color and has a grainy consistency, similar to that of raw sugar. The rough nature of the salt lends itself to skin scrubs (exfoliation) and can also be used with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate ). We recommend you try Dead Sea Salt as a body scrub or just as a relaxing additive to your baths.
Please note: The large flat crystals in the salts are magnesium crystals.
Caution: Heart patients must follow the advice of their physician before taking baths in which magnesium is used.
Body Soak Recipe:
In a small bowl, mix 6 drops Tangerine, 6 drops Grapefruit Pink, and 6 drops Mandarin Essential Oils with 1 tablespoon of honey into 2 cups Dead Sea Mineral Salts. Hop into the bath water and wet your body - don’t make the water too hot or you will get sleepy and relaxed rather than refreshed! Stand while in the bath, and take a handful of the salt mixture at a time and scrub down your entire body. Let the mixture fall down into the tub. Soak for no more than 20 minutes, as this mixture is to refresh and rejuvenate you. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin afterwards!
