Salt baths: a sea of benefits for your wellbeing

baños de sal

In the constant search for wellness and relaxation, salt baths emerge as an ancestral practice that has withstood the test of time.

These baths, used for both their therapeutic and relaxing benefits, are a perfect fusion of nature and science.

But what exactly are salt baths and how do they differ frombath salts?

In this article, we will explore this ancient wellness ritual, diving into its benefits and key differences.

What are Salt Baths?

Salt baths, in their essence, are therapeutic baths that involve dissolving natural sea salt in hot water. This practice has been used for centuries to relieve muscle pain, calm the mind and purify the skin.

Sea salts, rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium, provide endless benefits to the body and mind.

Benefits of Sea Salt Baths

  • Muscle and Joint Relief: Soaking in a sea salt bath can help reduce inflammation and relieve muscle and joint pain, thanks to the action of natural minerals.
  • Detoxification and Skin Purification: Sea salt is known for its ability to draw toxins from the body and deeply cleanse the skin, leaving it smooth and rejuvenated.
  • Relaxation and Stress Reduction: The act of taking a salt bath is in itself a relaxing ritual that can reduce stress and promote a sense of calm and well-being.

Difference between Sea Salt and Epsom Salt Baths

Although both types of baths use salt, there are key differences:

  • Composition: Epsom salt, also known as magnesium sulfate, is different from sea salt, which is primarily sodium chloride with a mixture of other minerals.
  • Specific Benefits: While Epsom salt is particularly known for its high magnesium content and muscle-relaxing effects, sea salt offers a wider range of minerals beneficial to overall skin and body health.

Difference between Bath Salts and Salt Baths

Confusion between bath salts and salt baths is common. Bath salts often include a blend of sea salt, fragrances, essential oils and colorants, designed for an aromatic and visually appealing bathing experience.

In contrast, pure salt baths focus more on the therapeutic benefits of natural salt without additives and with a higher concentration of salt in the water to produce the osmosis effect. We need to reach 20% salt in the hot water, so that the exchange of the water inside our body with the salt water takes place.

Contraindications of Salt Baths

Although salt baths are safe for most people, there are some contraindications. People with certain medical conditions, such as heart problems or very high blood pressure, should consult a physician before soaking in a salt bath.

In addition, it is important not to exceed the recommended duration of a salt bath to avoid dehydration of the skin.

Salt baths are a gateway to a world of relaxation and purification. Whether you choose pure sea salt or a blend enriched with essential oils, this ancient ritual can be a rejuvenating retreat in your self-care routine.
