How Do I Use Bath Salts?
Bath salts are pretty simple to use and can be used in a variety of ways.
In the bath tub (for widespread symptoms)
Add 2-4 cups of salt to a warm running bath and, once dissolved, relax for approximately 20 minutes. Rinse or shower after with fresh water if you wish. Take 3 baths per week for 2-4 weeks. After symptoms subside reduce to maintenance levels – approximately once per week.
Foot or arm bath (for use on the extremities)
Use a watertight bowl and fill with warm water. Use approximately ¾ cups per 10 litres. Ensure the salt has dissolved and then submerge the affected area for approximately 20 mins. Rinse after with fresh water. Take 3 baths per week for 2-4 weeks. After symptoms subside reduce to maintenance levels – approximately once per week.
Body wrap (localised symptoms)
Dissolve in approximately ¾ cup of salt in 10 litres of warm water. When the salt is fully dissolved, saturate a small to medium sized towel with the salted water. Cover the affected area of skin with the towel for 20 minutes. Rinse with water after use. Repeat 3 times per week for 2-4 weeks. After symptoms subside reduce to maintenance levels – approximately once per week.
Our bath salts are 100% natural and are really sensitive to things that aren’t. So don’t use salts with your usual shower products as it will interfere with the minerals (and anyway, the bath salts have a cleansing effect on the skin so you shouldn’t need them). If you really want to get tricky, you can add ½ cup of olive oil to the bath to improve moisturisation.
