The Himalayan salt bath (called a "sole") allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. The cleansing effect of a 30 minute Himalayan salt bath equals that of a three-day fast (which I am not too keen on). The toxins from your body are released into the bath water, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and gets rid of skin-irritations. Calluses on the skin become smooth and supple again.

Containing all of the 84 elements found in your body, the benefits of natural Himalayan Crystal Salt include:

1. Regulating the water content throughout your body.
2. Promoting a healthy pH balance in your cells, particularly your brain cells.
3. Promoting blood sugar health and helping to reduce the signs of aging.
4. Assisting in the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in your body.
5. Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract.
6. Supporting respiratory health.
7. Promoting sinus health.
8. Prevention of muscle cramps.
9. Promoting bone strength.
10. Regulating your sleep -- it naturally promotes sleep.
11. Supporting your libido.
12. Promoting vascular health.
13. In conjunction with water it is actually essential for the regulation of your blood pressure.

To get the full benefits of a natural crystal salt bath, the right salt concentration is important. The salt concentration has to be at least the same as the one of your body fluids (approximately 1%) to activate the osmotic exchange ratio. The formula for a 1% solution is 1.28 ounces of salt per gallon of water. Therefore, an “average” bathtub filled with 28 gallons of water will use I kilo (2.2 lbs.) of Himalayan salt.

Moon Phase Bathing

Observations with the moon rhythm have shown that the best results can be achieved when taking a brine bath at the time of moon change.

Full Moon Bath
On the day of the full moon the healing process of the body is at its peak as is its absorption potential. At full moon, the body will absorb the most minerals from the salt bath. The mineral materials penetrate and are absorbed into the skin in the form of ions. Bioenergetic weak points are harmonized and the body's own energy flow is activated

New Moon Bath
At new moon, the body's capacity for detoxification is at its highest. This is a perfect time for a cleansing salt bath. Weight adjustment and decontamination of the body are supported.

Instructions:

Place 1 kg (1 bag) of Himalayan Crystal Bath Salt in your bathtub and adjust enough hot water to cover the crystal stones. After about half an hour the salt will have dissolved. You can also stir the water to dissolve the salt faster. Then fill up the bathtub with 28 or so gallons of water. In the case of a bigger bathtub you should use two bags of Himalayan Crystal Salt.


Measure the temperature with a thermometer and try to get as close as 98.6 Fahrenheit as possible. Bathe for about 30 minutes. Do not eat anything heavy before your bath and do not use any chemical substances in this bath. After the bath do not rub dry, but gently pat your skin and let the body air-dry naturally.
