Learn about all of the amazing benefits of taking a Himalayan pink salt bath! + free printable labels to give pink salt as a gift!
Do you love, love, love multi-use products as much as I do?! Then you need to get some Himalayan salt (or “pink salt” ASAP.
The uses for pink salt range from culinary, to cosmetic, to therapeutic. I absolutely love cooking with it instead of regular table salt. And it also makes for a great body scrub when mixed with some skin-healthy oil.
Today though, we’re focusing on the health benefits of using pink salt in a bath. No need for a fancy store-bought bath salt set. Simply pick up a bag of fine grain pink salt! I order mine from Amazon – I love the Sherpa Pink brand.
Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt Bath
1. Relieve sore muscles and inflammation – the magnesium content in pink salt can soothe your muscles.
2. Detoxification – like other types of salt baths, a Himalayan salt bath can also draw toxins from the skin thanks to reverse osmosis.
3. Full of minerals – Himalayan salt contains calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, iodine, zinc, and many other trace minerals that are beneficial for your skin and your overall health.
4. Pink salt can soothe skin issues like acne and eczema.
5. Stimulates circulation.
Pink Salt Bath: How-To
Because of the detoxifying qualities of this salt bath, it’s safe to start at one cup in a bath at a time, and then work your way up to two cups. Soak for 10-15 minutes.
Also, it’s important to make sure you stay hydrated! I drink a cup of water before the bath, have some on hand while I’m in it, and then drink more after.
Give it as a gift!
Pink salt makes for a special gift. Seriously, who isn’t impressed by pink. salt? It’s so beautiful!
