Salt is such a wonderfully cleansing product. If you have ever had tired & aching feet and soaked them in a warm bath of pure salts – your will know exactly what I am talking about!
I recommend that our self-help kits contain a supply of Epsom Salts. Epsom salts, through a process of osmosis, draw out toxins from the cells, so will not only clear your energy field as you bathe – but will also draw out toxins from tissues and cells if you allow yourself to soak for at least 20 minutes. (Not such a big ask). 🙂
USE: Some people go over the top with the salts, I have found a handful of 2-3 TBs is enough for a good soak. We need to bathe for at least 20 mins for the cleansing process to take place, however you can stay in the soak as long as you like.
Due to this cleansing process – you are NOT recommended to use soaps or other products with chemicals in them. It is lovely however to put 6-8 drops of your favourite ‘Essential Oil’ into the bath as this will enhance the cleanse and healing process. If we are bathing children however 4 drops would be adequate.
Some Advice On Safe Oils:
Relax: Lavender, Mandarin, True Melissa, Neroli, Sweet Orange
Balance: Lavender, Neroli, Niaouli, Sweet Orange, Petitgrain, Sandlewood, Ylang Ylang
If you have dry skin, you have the perfect opportunity to moisturise your body post bathtime with a body oil 🙂
Epsom Salts are not readily available anymore but can be purchased from some good health food shops and many chemists will order them for you if they don’t have any in stock.
OTHER SALTS? Table Salt is highly refined and contains harmful chemicals, it is intelligent to use am ‘unrefined’ rock salt in the diet. Himalayan Rock Salt is a wonderful alternative for dietary support as it is very pure and mineral rich. Himalayan salt is a useful alternative for bathing for this reason – as of course what you soak in – is also absorbed through the skin!
