About Dead Sea Salts
The waters of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their therapeutic effects since ancient times. Two thousand years ago, Flavius wrote that the salts from the Dead Sea heal the human body.The waters from the Dead Sea are unique in that they contain 27% of various salts as compared to 3% in normal sea water. Further, while sodium accounts for approximately 80% of the salt content of normal sea water, it comprises much less of the salt total in water from the Dead Sea. The balance of the salts in Dead Sea water is magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride and bromides. Why are these types of salts beneficial? Magnesium is important for combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism.
Perfect addition to your bath (cold or not)

I've been sick with a cold for a few days now. Tonight I decided to take a hot bath. I totally spoiled myself with DaySpa products. (Dead Sea Mud & Salt Soap and Lemongrass Sugar Scrub) For the first time I added the Cold & Flu Bath Salts to my water and turned on the jets. It made a wonderful difference. Completely relaxing and it actually helped me breath better. Despite my cold I am feeling completely and utterly spoiled. :)
