  • The Benefits of Dead Sea Salt
    Dead Sea Salt Crystals
    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 are magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride and bromides.

    Studies have been conducted on the health benefits of bathing in Dead Sea salts. One such study was conducted by Dr. I. Machtey on 103 patients suffering from osteoarthritis and tendinitis. Patients were either treated with baths of 7.5%, 2% or 0.5% Dead Sea salt concentration. Improvement was found after as little as one week of treatment for those treated with 7.5% or 2% salt baths. By the study's end, 80% of the patients reported less pain; 70% experienced improved mobility and 60% were able to decrease their use of analgesics.

    Application

    When ready to use your sea salt scrub, use the Natures CLEARSkin cleanser to wash your face. Apply sea salt with a pump of cleanser to moist skin, gently rubbing in a circular motion to promote adequate exfoliation. Avoid active scrubbing over areas of inflamed acne or mucous membranes. Allow the scrub to remain on your face for five minutes before rinsing it off.
