Going back to the basics is the best way to get in touch with the healing power of nature! Salt is essential for life and balances many physiologic functions within the body. The Greeks, Egyptians, Arabs, and the Germans have used salt topically for skin conditions and also internally for digestive problems for centuries.
Bathing in salt helps the skin to regenerate while reducing inflammation, pain, supporting detoxification, and soothing sore muscles. It has been shown to treat psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and dandruff.
Try a salt scrub: a salt scrub gives you a beautiful glow because it exfoliates the skin while pulling impurities out of it.
- Add 4 cups of unrefined Sea Salt to a large bowel (optional: for added detoxification add 1 cup of baking soda)
- Add 1 cup of coconut oil with the salts into the bowel
- Add 10-20 drops of calendula or lavender essential oil and mix until it becomes a paste.
- Step into the shower and begin to apply a small amount of the paste to your feet and move up your body (similar to your lymphatic flow).
Try a salt bath: Pour 2 cups of unrefined salt into the bath and soak for 30 minutes.
