Bath Salts FAQ’s

Wild As The Wind is one of the leading online resources for information on bath salts, so we get asked a lot of questions about which bath salt to use and which bath salts can be blended with other bath salts… So, it’s high time we put a Bath Salts FAQ together!

Using Bath Salts for their health benefits…

Why Should I Use Bath Salts?

Why Should I Use Bath Salts? is definitely the most common question when it comes to mineral baths.

People read articles containing the general benefits of mineral bathing, but still end up asking themselves “Yeah but… Why Should I Use Bath Salts?”

Mineral baths aren’t for everyone. Some people either hate taking a bath, or they don’t have time for one… and, some people don’t even have a bath in their house, and so mineral baths are out of the question in these cases…

However, we advocate using foot baths, and not full baths for mineral bathing, and we also advocate making body scrubs to be used before showers if you don’t have time for a foot bath.

It needs to be emphasised, nevertheless, that foot baths are a lot more mineralising than body scrubs, so if you are looking for increased health benefits, then a foot bath is best.

So the answer to the question: Why Should I Use Bath Salts? is that there’s no “should” about it!

Instead of “Why Should I Use Bath Salts?” it is better to ask “What Are The Benefits Of Bath Salts?”.

In order to answer the “What Are The Benefits Of Bath Salts?” you can read this article or any of the other articles about bath salts on this website. You will find links to other articles about bath salts, (like this one) peppered around this and other articles on mineral bathing.

Sea Salt Bath

Yup! Sea Salt Bath isn’t even a question! But, it’s the most commonly searched for item on this website when it comes to bathing in salt baths… so, we just wanted to make sure you found your answer fast!

Taking a sea salt bath is one of the most relaxing and healing things you can do for your body. Because of mono-crop farming and no crop rotation all of the minerals in our soil are being lost. Modern farming methods don’t include putting the minerals back, and even organic farmers aren’t expected to either. (Buy local organic for nutrient dense foods.)

Taking a Sea Salt Bath is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity as each year passes.

But, why is taking a Sea Salt Bath so important?

Sea Salt Bath Benefits

There are many Sea Salt Bath Benefits, but perhaps the most important one is replenishing the minerals we are not getting in our diet.

  • Replenishing Mineral Deficiencies

Minerals such as Magnesium, which is perhaps the most critically important mineral we are lacking, actually prefers to enter the body transdermally. This simply means that Magnesium likes to be consumed by the body through the skin, rather than having to be digested by the stomach and intestines.

We absorb 60% of what we place on the skin and so this is a very efficient way of allowing nutrients, (and toxins!), to enter the body.

If you have cramps, headaches, night sweats, aching muscles, painful bones and joints, etc, then you are almost certainly Magnesium deficient. As Magnesium is used in about 700 critical processes in the body a Magnesium deficiency is really bad news.

Approximately 90% of us are deficient in Magnesium, which is mainly due to the amount of sugar in the Western diet, a lot of which is hidden sugar in savoury processed foods. Magnesium is required in considerable quantity within the body to process sugar.

Because Magnesium prefers to be absorbed by the skin this makes taking a Sea Salt Bath an important part of our dietary regime.

  • Sickness & Diarrhoea

The electrolyte balance, as you will discover through reading this article, is vital for our health. However, there are several ways in which we can lose our electrolyte balance, none more so than with sickness and diarrhoea.

It is critical to replace the lost electrolytes as soon as possible, and salts are used for this purpose. In actual fact, electrolytes are the best cure for diarrhoea there is.

*I used to live in India in the 1990’s and I had a number of pretty full-on bouts of diarrhoea, and I always used electrolytes to cure them, along with what the Indians called Curd. Curd is the best live yogurt I’ve ever tasted and it worked a treat!

The tragedy is that is was very simple to overcome these bouts of ‘Delhi-Belly’, but the biggest cause of death in India at that time was dehydration. Simple rehydration salts could have saved so many lives.

  • Relieving Stress

Salt, or sodium, is responsible for the nervous impulses within the body which are governed by electrochemical activity. Insufficient salt in the body results in dysfunctions within these processes leading to nervous tension.

The minerals in a sea salt bath are needed for many functions within the body, including mood management etc. For example, insufficient Magnesium levels have been shown to contribute to many neuropsychiatric problems, including anxiety and depression.

Sea salt is believed by some to help regulate two hormones, Serotonin and Melatonin, which would also contribute to sea salt’s ability to reduce the symptoms of depression.

  • Aids Sleep

The minerals in a sea salt bath also help us to sleep better. Melatonin is the sleep hormone, and so a sea salt bath could really help support restful sleep. (Blue screens, like computers and TV’s do the opposite. Check out the video interview with Jack Kruse at the bottom of the Shungite page to learn more about this and the importance of our Circadian Rhythm.)

  • Remineralising Teeth

Did you know that a Sea Salt Bath could potentially remineralise your teeth?

Epsom Salts are essentially Magnesium, but Dead Sea Salt has 25 different minerals in it, one of which is Calcium. Himalayan Rock Salt has 84 different minerals, and so these salts can potentially help your body to remineralise your teeth.

Warm sea salt swishing can lessen dental acidic damage, also.

  • Relief From Inflammation

Sea Salt Baths benefit inflammatory conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. They actually reduce swelling in the tissue as well as in the joints, which means that a sea salt bath will also cure muscle cramps, although an Epsom Salt bath would work even better.

However, muscle contractions are the result of electrochemical activity facilitated by salt, and so a sea salt bath will also help with muscle cramps.

As Asthma is an inflammatory condition sea salt is also potentially very helpful for this condition. Some people practice putting a pinch of sea salt on their tongue after drinking a glass of filtered water instead of using an inhaler. Whilst there’s no scientific evidence to support the efficacy of this method of reducing Asthma symptoms, it is clearly working for some people.

Do you know anyone who does this? If so, please let us know in the comments section at the end of this article. Thanks.

  • Skin Care

A Sea Salt Bath is also great as part of your skin care regime. You will find your skin is smoother, better hydrated and softer to the touch after a sea salt bath.

Another way in which sea salt baths are good for the care of our skin is because of their deeply detoxifying abilities. As we eliminate 40% of our body waste through our skin, the detoxing action of a sea salt bath really helps to dial up our detox efficiency. And yes, that means the appearance of cellulite is likely to improve too, because cellulite is comprised of the toxins stored in our fat.

Topical skin conditions like Psoriasis, Eczema and even Acne will respond well to sea salt baths. You can read more about the benefits of salt therapies in this article dedicated to the subject: Bath Salts For Eczema and Psoriasis.

The granular nature of Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Rock Salt are ideal as an exfoliant. By adding a tablespoon or two of Sweet Almond Oil, which is also an anti-inflammatory, and your favourite essential oil, like Frankincense Serata, another amazing anti-inflammatory, and then using it as a body rub, prior to getting into your bath, is a great way to enhance detoxing and improve the condition of your skin. But, do not do this on sensitive and delicate skin, such as the skin of your face and neck.

Mineral salts have been shown to improve skin barrier function, as well as increasing the moisture content of the skin.

However, for these benefits it is probably best to resort to Epsom Salts as it’s the Magnesium content that elicits these outcomes.

Epsom Salts, owing to their very high Magnesium content can also help to prevent premature ageing and even reduce dark circles under the eyes.

  • Improves Blood Circulation

Regular sea salt baths will help to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure.

That’s right…! All that nonsense about salt increasing blood pressure and hypertension is the opposite of the case.

  • Stimulates Hair Growth

Applying a mild solution of warm sea salt to the scalp not only increases the circulation but it can also stimulate hair growth as well as strengthen hair follicles.

  • Maintains pH Balance

An alkaline body is considered to be an healthy body and an acidic body is the one that will get sick.

One of the 700, or so, jobs performed by Magnesium is to maintain the pH balance in our bodies. There is no better reason than this to indulge in a sea salt bath.

  • Immune Function

It’s this alkalising effect which prevents bacteria and viruses from getting out of hand, so Magnesium is vital for our Immune System also.

Below is a brilliant interview about hydration, the massive importance of Magnesium for health. I hope you find the time to watch it.

Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt

Again, Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt is not a question, but it’s what a lot of the visitors to the Wild As The Wind website want to know about. I have already tried to answer the Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt issue in the section above, but it’s probably best to recap and embellish.

I would personally like to view this contest as more a case of using one salt one day for certain benefits and then the other on different days as they both possess incredible merits. Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt seems a little unnecessarily adversarial, especially as we can obtain benefits from them both by simply adding them together!

Magnesium Deficiency

However, wherever there is a Magnesium deficiency I would always advocate straight Epsom Salt for the job.

Epsom Salt is largely comprised of Magnesium.

The mineral Magnesium is the most critically important mineral in the body. It is responsible for around 700 vital functions within the body.

Magnesium actually prefers to enter the body transdermally and so regular Epsom salt baths are a really good idea.

The term transdermal refers to a substance or a liquid being absorbed through the skin. Magnesium is difficult to digest via the gut.

It looks like Epsom Salt is going to win the Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt contest straight off the bat… and there’s other reason why this would seem likely…

  • 90% Of Us Are Magnesium Deficient

Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

If you have any of the following then you are likely to be Magnesium deficient:

  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Night Sweats
  • Aching muscles
  • Painful bones and joints

The sugar in our Western diet is probably the culprit here… A lot of Magnesium is required to process sugar in the body.

Skin Care

The Magnesium in Epsom Salts have been shown to improve skin barrier function and increase the moisture content of the skin.

Because of the very high Magnesium content in Epsom Salts bathing in Epsom Salts can help prevent premature ageing as well as reducing dark circles under the eyes.

Then there’s the benefits to Psoriasis, Eczema and Acne and bathing in Epsom Salts. But, these conditions will also respond pretty well to a sea salt bath also.

But Epsom Salts aren’t going to completely dominate skincare in the battle of Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt…

A Sea Salt Bath will also leave your skin more hydrated, smoother, and softer to the touch.

Epsom Salts are thought to cleanse the aura, but it’s a Sea Salt Bath that is deeply detoxifying across the spectrum. We eliminate 40% of our body waste via the skin, and so it’s important to detox this immense organ.

Yes, the skin is an organ…! In fact, it’s the largest organ of the body!

Plus, the granular nature of Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Rock Salt are perfect for using as an exfoliant, whereas Epsom Salts are too slippery and dissolve too quickly.

That’s definitely a win for Sea Salt in the Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt stakes!

By adding a tablespoon or two of Sweet Almond Oil, which is also an anti-inflammatory, and your favourite essential oil, like Frankincense Serata, another amazing anti-inflammatory, and then using it as a body rub prior to getting into your bath is a great way to enhance detoxing and improve the condition of your skin. Do not do this on sensitive and delicate skin, such as the skin of your face and neck.

Maintains pH Balance

A lack of alkalinity in the body is considered by many to be the root cause of all illness.

Magnesium is required to maintain the pH balance in our bodies, and so Epsom Salt is the better of the two salts in this instance…

Immune Function

The alkalising effect of Magnesium is also needed to prevent bacteria and viruses from getting the upper hand within our bodies, so Epsom Salts win out in this instance also.

But, lets not go declaring a ‘no contest’ where Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt is concerned… it’s not over yet!

Sickness & Diarrhoea

Some vitally important actions of Sea Salt cannot be achieved by Epsom Salts.

We need Sea Salts to restore our electrolyte balance after a bout of sickness and diarrhoea, or through excessive sweating due to a fever or a particularly heavy workout at the gym.

It is critical to replace the lost electrolytes as soon as possible, and salts are used for this purpose. In actual fact, electrolytes are the best cure for diarrhoea there is.

I used to live in India in the 1990’s and I had a number of pretty full-on bouts of diarrhoea, and I always used electrolytes to cure them, along with what the Indians called Curd. Curd is the best live yogurt I’ve ever tasted and it worked a treat!

The tragedy is that is was very simple to overcome these bouts of ‘Delhi-Belly’, but the biggest cause of death in India at that time was dehydration. Simple rehydration salts could have saved so many lives.

Psychological Health

Sea Salt Baths outperform Epsom Salts when it comes to stress and the health of our nervous system.

But, before we go declaring an outright winner between Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt, the magnesium in Epsom Salts is vital for our psychological health…

Insufficient Magnesium contributes to many neuropsychiatric problems, including anxiety and depression.

However, Sea Salt, being one of the best forms of Sodium for the body, is responsible for nervous impulses, which are governed by electrochemical activity. Thus, insufficient salt results in dysfunctions, which in turn lead to nervous tension.

Sea salt is believed by some to help regulate two hormones, Serotonin and Melatonin, which would also contribute to sea salt’s ability to reduce the symptoms of depression.

So, I would declare the Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt debate pretty equal when it comes to Psychological Health.

Sleep

The minerals in Sea Salt help with the quality and duration of our sleep. Melatonin, being the sleep hormone, is vital for restorative sleep. As a Sea Salt Bath supplies the sodium required for Melatonin production, a Sea Salt bath wins hands down in the Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt stakes.

Remineralising Teeth

A Sea Salt Bath is better for remineralising teeth than Epsom. Minerals like Calcium are required, which is not present in Epsom Salts.

But we far from tipping the balance in favour of Sea Salt Vs Epsom Salts…

Relief From Inflammation

Sea Salt Baths are excellent for inflammatory conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. They even reduce swelling in the tissue as well as the joints. This means that a Sea Salt bath can also help with cramping, but, of course an Epsom Salt bath would be even more effective.

But, because muscle contractions are the consequence of electrochemical activity that requires sodium to work,  a Sea Salt bath will also help with muscle cramping.

Asthma

Asthma is an inflammatory disorder. this means that Sea Salt can potentially be very useful.

Some people practice putting a pinch of sea salt on their tongue after drinking a glass of filtered water instead of using an inhaler. Whilst there’s no scientific evidence to support the efficacy of this method of reducing Asthma symptoms, it is clearly working for some people.

Do you know anyone who does this? If so, please let us know in the comments section at the end of this article. Thanks.

Improves Circulation

Regular Sea Salt baths helps improve circulation and lowers blood pressure.

Yes, yes, yes… Conventional wisdom is that Sea Salt would have the opposite effect, but the truth of the matter is Sea Salt  decreases blood pressure and hypertension!

Stimulates Hair Growth

Sea Salt is also better than Epsom Salt when it comes to stimulating hair growth and strengthening hair follicles.

Apply a mild solution of warm Sea Salt with Rosemary and Lavender Essential Oils to the scalp to increase circulation and stimulate hair growth.

So the final scores on the doors for Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt?

Well it’s not a draw, but there’s no outright winner either.

Sea Salt is necessary for some of the most vital functions of the body, but so is the Magnesium in Epsom Salts. The truth of the matter is that we cannot compare like for like with Epsom Salt Vs Sea Salt… Sea Salt and Epsom Salt are similar, but different, and both are becoming increasingly critical for our health.

The modern Western diet and the increasing levels of pollution, pesticides, herbiscides and lavicides in our environment are causing us all manner of problems.

It is believed that regular use of chemical cleaning products equates to smoking 20 cigarettes a day, and the amount of neurotoxins and general poisons in our environment are becoming so burdensome that one in two people alive in Britain today will die of Cancer.

Bathing in Epsom Salts or Sea Salts will make a difference where all of this is concerned.

Epsom Salt For Eczema

Epsom Salt For Eczema is more of a niche query that I have briefly mentioned already. But, because so many people enquire after Epsom Salt For Eczema I feel I need to mention it in more detail here.

But, please be aware I have also covered the subjecy of Epsom Salt For Eczema very comprehensively in the article Psoriasis & Eczema Bath Salts.

The jury is divided when it comes to deciding whether Epsom Salt For Eczema is the best way to go. I personally advocate using Epsom Salt For Eczema as opposed to the other Sea Salts, although much benefit would be obtained from these also.

However, it’s the Magnesium content in Epsom Salt that wins the day as far as I am concerned when it comes to Epsom Salt For Eczema. Because Magnesium is vital for physical conditions that cause stress, and stress is so inter-related with both Eczema and Psoriasis I will always advocate Epsom Salt For Eczema relief rather than the Sea Salts.

However, you will learn more about why I believe that Epsom Salt For Eczema is the right way to go, as well as how to heal Eczema in other ways by following the link above.

Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath

Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath is another proposition that is covered in the Psoriasis and Eczema article. But, instead of a Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath I actually advocate an Epsom Salt & Baking Soda Bath.

I recommend you follow the link above and read this comprehensive article on the subject.

But, suffice to say a Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath is not the optimal treatment for things like Psoriasis and Eczema.

However, a Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath would be ideal after a a camping trip or if you feel you have had exposure to higher than usual levels of environmental toxins.

But, the primary benefit of a Baking Soda Bath is the fact that it is really soothing for the skin and can provide symptomatic relief for irritable skin conditions.

I hope this has answered the basic questions with regard to Sea Salt & Baking Soda Bath. please let me know in the comments if you need me to provide more information.

Health Benefits Of A Sea Salt Bath

The subject of Health Benefits Of A Sea Salt Bath has largely already been covered in this and other articles. Many of the health benefits of a sea salt bath are mentioned in brief in this article, but are dealt with more comprehensively in Bathing In Dead Sea Salts, Epsom Salts, Himalayan Rock Salt and Baking Soda

If you know of any more health benefits of a sea salt bath please let me know in the comments. I am particularly interested in really quirky health benefits of a sea salt bath… so please feel free to come at me left-field!

Himalayan Salt Bath

An Himalayan Salt Bath with it’s 84 minerals is an immensely soothing and regenerative experience, which is why, I guess, queries about the fabled Himalayan Salt Bath are presented so often.

But, would you believe that the Himalayan Salt Bath query is not the top query I receive? There appears to be a more popular bath than the Himalayan Salt Bath…

Is it because the pink ferrous constituents of Himalayan Salt leave a gritty residue in the bottom of the bath that just refuses to dissolve? Or, is it the fact that some of the 84 minerals are becoming better known…(?) and not everyone wants to bathe in Cadmium and Arsenic…!

*Nevertheless, you will see in Morning Detox Protocols that I advocate drinking Himalayan Salt all day, every day… and that’s because the minerals are in such minor quantities that they can’t harm us. And, it’s the electrolyte content and the ability of Himalayan Salt to rehydrate and support other vital bodily functions that leads me to use this practice.

I also take an Himalayan Salt Bath often. I feel like Himalayan Salt cleanses my energy, and may be even helps to raise my vibration. I love the fact that Himalayan Salt has been locked away from environmental pollutants for thousands of years and so despite having traces of toxic substances within it, there’s no nasty modern chemicals in there for me to contend with.

I would always advocate an Himalayan Salt Bath rather than a Celtic Salt Bath as sadly any open sea salt is likely to have plastic in it.

So the Himalayan Salt Bath Vs Celtic Salt Bath has an outright winner… It’s an Himalayan Salt Bath every time!

Dead Sea Salt Bath

The most commonly queried salt bath is the Dead Sea Salt Bath, and I can completely understand why.

When you take a Dead Sea Salt Bath you are immersing yourself in 25 really important minerals, and the cleanliness of the salts is far higher than Celtic Salt. The risk of plastic pollution of Dead Sea Salt is minimal.

I regularly take a Dead Sea Salt Bath. The crystals dissolve easily and the results are amazing. Because the crystals are more weighty than Epsom Salts I tend to make a body scrub out of the Dead Sea Salts, (see above), before dropping them into my Dead Sea Salt Bath so that I can also soak for a while.

It doesn’t surprise me that Dead Sea Salt Baths are the most popular of all of the mineral baths… in a lot of ways they are also my favourite.

I really feel that a Dead Sea Salt Bath is delivering a lot of healing benefits, and I know that using the salt as a scrub for a few minutes before taking a Dead Sea Salt Bath will get rid of pretty much any skin condition if done regularly enough.

However, the results of regular Dead Sea Salt Baths will only be maintained if gut issues and sources of stress are dealt with.

I have written more about Dead Sea Salt Baths in Bathing In Dead Sea Salts, Epsom Salts, Himalayan Rock Salt and Baking Soda and so I suggest you visit this page also.

If, after reading that, you still have more questions then please ask them in the comments of either this, or the other, article.

Dead Sea Rock Salt

Okay… it’s a regular query, but I’m not going to repeat everything in this Dead Sea Rock Salt section.

Dead Sea Rock Salt has been adequately covered directly above and in the section of this article devoted to Sea Salt Baths.

What I will say about Dead Sea Rock Salt is that it’s not like Himalayan Rock Salt as it forms on the edges of the Dead Sea, whereas Himalayan Rock Salt is effectively in boulder form hidden beneath the earth’s surface.

This means that Dead Sea Rock Salt is more exposed to environmental pollutants, but is still a lot cleaner than open sea salts like Celtic Sea Salt.

*I’ve mentioned Dead Sea Salt Vs Himalayan Rock Salt below…

Just as a matter of interest, there’s also a lot of queries about Dead Sea Salt on the Wild As The Wind website, so if I were to add all the Dead Sea Salt and Dead Sea Rock Salt queries together the result would mean that Dead Sea Salt is queried twice as much as all the other salt varieties put together.

But why?

I don’t know!

Perhaps Dead Sea Salt is reported more in the mainstream media than the other salts?

Or is it because Dead Sea Salt comes from a place that’s closer to home?

I really don’t know. All I know is that you love Dead Sea Salt as much as I do!

Dead Sea Salt Bath How Often?

Great! I can answer this one!

There’s no limit to how many Dead Sea Salt Baths you can take from an overwhelm or toxic point of view. However, you are better off asking yourself Dead Sea Salt Bath How Often? rather than me!

This is because it all depends on your lifestyle and perhaps your finances…?

If you are exercsing vigourouly every day, or are unwell with a fever I would recommend increasing your Dead Sea Salt Baths… but, under normal circumstances I would say twice a week to three times a week is ample.

If I had been asked Dead Sea Salt Bath How Often? in relation to detoxing, or to help with chronic insomnia, my answer would be different still. In these cases Dead Sea Salt Bath How Often? becomes every night!

How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath

The How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath subject has well and truly been answered in Bathing In Dead Sea Salts, Epsom Salts, Himalayan Rock Salt and Baking Soda.

But, for quick reference, How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath depends on your requirements, but if it’s purely to get the nutrients into your body I advocate a 5% dilution in a foot bath.

Please not, plastics release synthetic oestrogens, or synthetic oestrogens, when hot, and so only do your foot baths in a metal basin.

Otherwise, the answer to How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath is about 200g, but i advocate making a scrub and applying the salt topically before dropping it in the bath so you can have a soak… see more info above.

How Much Dead Sea Salt In Bath

Why do twice as many people ask How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath instead of How Much Dead Sea Salt To Use In Bath…? You really would think it’d be the other way round owing to the better economy of words…!

Can You Mix Dead Sea Salt With Epsom Salt?

I love this question! And nearly 100 people have asked it in recent months.

It shows that people are aware there’s such a thing as a chemical reaction… but I wonder at how many of the same people would think twice about mixing one cleaning product with another… because for sure that would be more potentially dangerous.

So… Can You Mix Dead Sea Salt With Epsom Salt?

You sure can!
