Himalayan Salt: A beautiful way to refine your detox regimen
“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.” - Karen Blixen
Salt baths have been acclaimed for their medicinal properties for millennia, and the rosy-hued salt of the pristine Himalayan mountains has forever been noted as supreme among salt varieties to soak in. As beautiful to look at as it is beautifying for your skin, and offering an array of healing effects for both body and spirit, pink Himalayan bath salts certainly merit a place in your weekly self-care routine.
Indeed, especially in these deep winter days where rich hot cocoa seems far more appealing than kale juice and you just cannot motivate yourself to lace up your tennis shoes for another gym run, a Himalayan salt bath can help you revive your New Year’s detox regimen with a little elegance and grace. Intrigued? Take a deep breath, light a few candles and read on . . .
An Indulgent Detox
As much as we love living in blissful denial, we cannot refute the fact that we encounter millions of toxins in our day to day lives. From less-than-pristine drinking water to the stuffy air we breathe while navigating the subways and city streets, we expose ourselves daily to a variety of unhealthful chemicals. Let us not forget, too, that our skin is our largest organ, and an incredibly porous one at that. Certain scientists claim that upon topical contact with our bodies, a number of toxins can be absorbed into our bloodstream in as little as 30 seconds! Frightening, we know! Hence the importance of mindfully choosing natural beauty products and taking care to properly detox as frequently as possible.
So how exactly can you detox from--life? A weekly Himalayan salt bath offers a perfect, effortless counter to adverse environmental factors. Believed to be the purest salt found on earth and containing fine crystals rich in essential minerals, the pink salt of the Himalayas naturally acts to deeply cleanse and purify both body and mind. In effect, soaking in these pretty salt crystals can largely reverse the routine environmental damage done to our bodies; the salts draw out toxins through reverse osmosis and, at the same time, nourish the body with a plethora of healthful minerals such as calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc. Not only are these lush minerals deeply healing from a nutritive perspective, but they also wondrously act to ease aches and pains, stimulate circulation, offer respiratory relief and reduce bloating.
No plans tonight? Draw yourself a bath, dissolve a handful of crystals in the warm water and prepare to pamper both your senses and your soul. Our proprietary Pink Himalayan Bath Salts
are uniquely imbued with the deeply sensual oils of vetiver, vanilla, black pepper and rose and promise profound relaxation as you bathe away your winter woes.
