Giftbag Salts

Salts from the Dead Sea have been legendary for centuries for their therapeutic and beatifying properties on the skin. Nothing like regular sea salt, Dead Sea salts are comprised of a wide variety of minerals, which are present in a high concentration.

People from all over the world travel to the Dead Sea to get relief from their skin ailments such as Psoriasis, Eczema and more. There are many spas and skin therapy centers located on the shores of the sea to take advantage of the healing powers of Dead Sea salt. 

The legend of how well Dead Sea salt works at helping skin look and feel younger, smoother as well as provide relaxation and skin ailment therapy dates back many thousands of years. For instance, over 2000 years ago -

the Jewish Roman historian Flavius wrote the following about people's experience with Dead Sea bath salt: "The Dead Sea can not be praised too highly...travelers take as much of this salt as they are able to home with them because it heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines." 

Cleopatra - the queen of ancient beauty was legendary for her magically youthful looks throughout her whole life, even as she got older. The real secret to the beauty of her silky skin was the anti aging effect of bath salts, mud and cosmetics made with Dead Sea salt - which was gathered for her at the factories she had built on the shores of the sea. The ruins of those factories can still be seen today at Erin Brooke and Erin Geed and they stand as testimonials to the ageless beauty power of Dead Sea bath salt. 

I have added the highest-grade of essential oils to heighten the therapeutic affect of the salts. The oils I have selected for each sign are meant to relax your body, strengthen your mind and uplift your spirit. Plus, the combos just smell good! 

For your bath, add between one half cup to a cup (roughly five scoops) of your salts to running bath water. Mix well to be sure the salts have dissolved.  

If you are not a “bath person”, per se, I would welcome you to add some oil to the salts and to use them as a body scrub. You can use olive oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil or whichever oil you prefer.  Put some of the salts in a bowl and just cover with oil. Then, while you are showering, add a little bit of the mixture to your fingers and rub over the body parts you wish to exfoliate. When you are finished, let the benefits of the oils and aromas sink in a bit before washing off any excess with soap or a mild cleanser.
