Taking a bath has many benefits for your physical and mental health. But did you know that all those fancy bath products actually have many benefits? When it comes to soaking salts many people think it's just sea salt with fragrance that looks pretty in a bottle but today I am going to share with you the real reason why those pretty bottles exist and why they should be included in your bathtub.
First off, all salts are not created equal. There are two methods for harvesting salt, one from salt mines (typically the table salt we use) and the other from the sea. The biggest health difference is that table salt has been heated to 1200 degrees and processed so much that much of its benefits have been striped away. Then additives are mixed in so that moisture doesn't occur and cause the salt to clump. This is NOT what we want to soak our bodies in.
At Fiorella Soapery we use Mediterranean sea salt that has been harvested directly from the sea and baked in natural sunlight. This process allows the water to naturally evaporate leaving behind pure sea salt with all of its natural benefits. If the sea salt has been minimally processed you will find yourself benefiting from 60+ natural minerals. Um, yes please! Here are my top 5 reasons why you should be adding soaking salts to your bath routine.
Quick Tip- I am a huge fan of bubbles in my bath so I suggest combining soaking salts with a bath bomb to get the best of both worlds. I suggest putting your soaking salts in first because the salt does have a tendency to deflate the bubbles if you add after your bubbles.
There are many other benefits to soaking salts and I would love to hear why you like using them in your bath routine. Leave a comment below and share!
With love and bubbles,
