Ingredients We Dew Love: Salts

Who doesn’t like to relax in the tub?
It may be inconvenient for a daily soak in the tub, but everyone deserves the chance to relax once in a while.
What better way to do that than with bath salts? And by bath salts, we don’t mean the ones that are in the news day in and day out. We are talking about Dead Sea, Sea, Epsom and Himalayan salts scented and conditioned with Essential Oils. Not only is this a great way to relax but to provide minerals for your skin.

Epsom Salts have been shown effective to draw toxins from the body. Even if you have the most perfect diet there are still toxins all around us and none of us our truly toxin free. Epsom salts are also great for soaking sore muscles and to help reduce swelling. These salts can also help get rid of dead skin cells. Epsom Salts are in many of our bath salt options.

Sea Salt contains many minerals has been shown in studies to help those with eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions. As with Epsom Salts sea salts are great for soaking and relaxing.

Dead Sea Salts are not man made, have not been processed and have zero manmade additives. They are full of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Magnesium helps combat stress, slow aging skin and helps with the nervous system.

Potassium helps with balancing skin moisture and invigorates the body.

Calcium strengthens bones and nails, helps with water retention and increases circulation.

Himalayan Salts are usually identified by the light pink color to them and have been shown to not only help with similar skin care problems as the other salts above, but also studies have shown it helps with skin funguses especially of the feet. Because of its ability to draw out toxins it has also been shown as a good solution for acne.

Soaking in bath salts is a great body purifier. It is also great after a workout or marathon as the minerals in the salts above have shown to be counteractive with the lactic acid (causes muscle soreness) that is built up during workouts. The sea salt enters through your pores during the bath and enters into your blood stream and then into those tissues where it starts the removal of the lactic acid.

Live Love Dew provides 3 different Bath Salts and we take special requests as well. We are also now packaging these in 16 oz containers for $15.00. Below are our options that also have a combination of the above salts:

Live.Love.Relax. - The great way to end a stressful day with Lavender Essential Oil.

Even without the added benefits we’ve mentioned above, everyone deserves to relax and feel rejuvenated afterwards. Follow up your soak with one of our great moisturizers.
