Bath Salts FAQs
There are many different types of bath salts. Most are natural minerals that are sourced from the ground. Himalayan Salt is a rock salt (an ancient Sea Salt) that has high mineral content (hence its pink colour). Epsom Salts are Magnesium Sulphate. Natural Epsom Salts are sourced from an ancient deposit in Germany. Magnesium Flakes (Magnesium Chloride) is also sourced from northern Europe from an ancient deposit formed millions of years ago. Dead Sea salts are a particularly mineral rich sea salt that is specific to Dead Sea. All the Bath Salts ranged by The Salt Box are natural, and sustainably sourced, however many other brands available are artificially manufactured in factories.
The benefits of bathing in a salt bath are many and varied, but overall it is about improving your wellness.

Dead Sea Salts and Himalayan Pink Salt contain many trace minerals, and Magnesium Flakes and Epsom Salt are high in Magnesium.
