Salt baths are a centuries-old ritual used to heal and balance. Salts are said to draw toxins out of the body, nourish the skin with minerals, remove impurities from the skin, help relieve stress, melt away tension and soothe aching muscles and pains. Bath salts are a simple and delightful way to add valuable, important trace minerals to your bath such as magnesium, sodium, calcium and potassium while softening water and gently cleansing the skin. Bath Salts are the ultimate bathing ritual to pamper your body, mind and spirit at home.
Solar salt is produced through the natural evaporation of seawater and naturally occurring brine. Salt water is captured in shallow ponds and allowed to evaporate by means of the sun and wind. During the process, a salt bed forms on the bottom of the pond. The salt is harvested, washed, screened and packaged. The typical solar "crop” takes from one to five years to produce.
Fine: (0-1mm) about twice the size of standard table salt, perfect for salts scrubs or as an additive to larger bath salts.
Medium: (1-2mm) about the size of a grain of rice (see picture) perfect consistency. Smaller than the standard bath salt, but takes color extremely uniformly and looks great packaged, in addition it dissolves very well.
Coarse: Our Most popular! (typical 2-9mm) larger than a grain of rice, smaller than a pencil eraser. Although it is typically 2-9mm it contains grains that are smaller and some that are larger, with random grains up to 1"
Extra Large Coarse: (3-12mm) This is a specialty salt used only to accent bath salt mixes. Grains are inconsistent with some pieces being as large as large a 2"
Sea Mix: These salts are a mixture of Fine, Medium and Coarse grains.
Simply add scent directly to salts and mix. Color may also be added directly to salts. Colorant is available here.
The possibilities are endless, really, we can go on forever so take a look at the Fragrances & Essential Oils available for purchase.
Salt is so simple and plentiful that we almost take it for granted.
In chemical terms, salt is the combination of a sodium ion with a chloride ion, making it one of the most basic molecules on earth. It's also one of the most plentiful: it has been estimated that salt deposits under the state of Kansas alone could supply the entire world's salt needs for the next 250,000 years.
But salt is also an essential element. Life itself would be impossible without it, since the human body requires salt in order to function properly. The concentration of sodium ions in the blood is directly related to the regulation of safe body fluid levels.
Salt has a long and influential role in world history. From the dawn of civilization, salt has been a key factor in economic, religious, social and political development. In every part of the world, salt has been the subject of superstition, folklore, and warfare, it has even been used as currency.
These solar dried Sea Salts contain no known allergens and exhibit no microbiological activity. These are natural sea salts and they may contain small discolored or black particles. These particles are naturally occurring in salts. We do not bleach or color treat natural sea salts.
* Please note: Due to the reactive nature of salt, scented/colored sea salts should be used within several months of purchase to avoid discoloration or fading of Color and Scent.
