What is Bath Salt?
A grain of true bath salt is, in fact, sea salt – so what makes bath salt different than plain sea salt?

Sea salt has been used by people around the world for centuries, and has long been known for its health benefits. Bath salt, as opposed to sea salt - comes in many different forms – go to any bath salt supplier and you will notice that bath salt comes in a variety of colors, textures, and sizes.

A grain of bath salt begins as raw sea salt, and carries many minerals that are beneficial to the skin. The quality of the bath salt depends on the supplier and the process it goes through on the way to the store’s shelves. Bath salt can be harvested and sold in its raw form, or it can be heavily processed. When choosing your bath salts, you want to make sure the bath salt is 100% natural – when a bath salt is processed, it often loses all the original minerals and nutrients that carry all the added benefits – so it’s important to choose a pure, natural bath salt.

Like a grain of sea salt, a bath salt can come in many sizes and textures. Depending on its size, a bath salt can take longer to dissolve (larger grains), or can dissolve quickly (smaller grains). A finer grain bath salt can be excellent to use in scrubs and provide excellent exfoliation. A larger-grain bath salt dissolves slowly – these are perfect for a long, decadent bathing experience.

The natural color of a grain of bath salt can vary, depending on the origin of the salt. A bath salt from the Himalayas is generally pinkish or even reddish in tone, whereas a bath salt from the Dead Sea is pure white or clear. From there, the salt can be infused with natural dyes and “painted” any color of the rainbow. You can choose a bath salt in any color of the rainbow, depending on your mood. Blue bath salts are soothing and calming; a bath salt that is orange, yellow, or red is energizing.

The minerals inside a high-quality bath salt promote healthy, more youthful skin. When you use a high quality bath salt, you’ll find your skin will feel smoother and softer after your bath. Bath salt also helps purge impurities from your skin, resulting in a clean, radiant glow.

Sea salt is packed with minerals and nutrients – so when sea salt is used in the tub in the form of bath salt, it delivers amazing benefits. Bathing with bath salt is a wonderful way to relax, and the benefits reach far beyond the skin’s surface: a high quality bath salt is believed to lower blood pressure, treat conditions such as arthritis and muscle soreness, and has powerful detoxifying properties.

And to gain all the benefits of bath salt, you don’t need to pay an arm and a leg – you can have a spa-like experience in your own home for a fraction of the price. Happy bathing!
