A few years ago, how to make dead sea salts was a difficult, time-consuming task filled with chemicals and not much else. But today, it's easier than ever to make great bath salts for your bath. With the internet, and local home supply stores, making bath salts has become a fun, and even affordable hobby for those who want to try it out. With the right supplies and ideas, anyone can have their own unique bath salt creation.
How To Make Bath Salts? 3 Easy Steps + Great Supplies. After being a bath salt addict for a number of years, my wife and I realized that everyone should know how to make bath salts, even those who aren't "in the know". Since then, we've made dozens of different varieties, and have found that not only is bath salt great for relaxation, but it also helps with inflammation and detoxification. Like many others, we've always been a bath fanatic.
Like most people, our bodies accumulate impurities over time, and as these substances build up in our pores (which are where most of the "bad stuff" flows) they begin to cause inflammation. Sebum, the skin's natural lubricant, and protective layer contain a lot of naturally occurring things like calcium and fatty acids that help to keep our skin smooth and supple. However, there are also a lot of other substances floating around in that sebum that can cause problems like clogged pores, rough and dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and a generally unpleasant complexion. When we get into these "bad" substances, what we usually end up with is dry and flaky skin that is more easily damaged and irritable.
Our bodies have developed a mechanism for getting rid of these impurities, but most of us haven't been paying attention to it or haven't learned how to use it properly. For instance, when you take baths, you're adding bath salts right into the mix. And if you're like most people, you don't even notice most of the time that you're adding them. These baths are meant to be relaxing and soothing, not energizing or doing extra work for your body. But when they're just sitting there in the tub doing nothing, you might as well be rubbing yourself raw in the process, because you're not getting any of the health benefits from those good-for-your-hands chemicals that you'd otherwise be getting from those baths.
If you rub your body in the shower, you might not even realize that you're doing it. But when you rub bath salt on your body in the tub, you can feel the effects almost immediately. It doesn't matter whether or not you get these results naturally, you can buy products with different scents and alternative ingredients that will give you all of the benefits of a salt bath right in the tub. There are products out there with essential oils and other ingredients that stimulate the skin's natural rejuvenation abilities, and they contain no harmful synthetic chemicals. This makes it ideal for people who want to pamper themselves without aggravating their skin.
So how do you use bath salts to get the results you want? Well, first you need to find the best quality essential oil that you can. It's okay if you have to pick up some extra supplies because the essential oil should last in the tub for up to an hour or two, so you won't have to worry about running out and buying more. Once you've found the right essential oil, you can combine bath additives such as white vinegar, lemon or mint drops, and coarse sea salt into a small tub or container.
Then you fill up your bath salt mixture with water and scrub it into your body until it covers all of your clothes and hair. Scrubbing doesn't have to be messy though, you can use a soft brush to gently cleanse everything. Leave it on for a few minutes, and then rinse everything off thoroughly. Be sure to thoroughly dry yourself off and apply some lotion to keep your skin soft. If you're using bath salts from dead sea salt for the first time, be sure to follow the instructions carefully so that you don't end up with a red, irritated face or other surface issues.
Finally, enjoy your luxurious bath time. The soothing effect of sea salt will leave you feeling refreshed after a long day and the smell of the natural essential oils will help you feel invigorated as well. You'll notice the grey bath salt even brings back memories of times spent relaxing in your tub, and the scent is very enjoyable. The important thing is that you enjoy it now while you can!
