Sea salt is rich in trace el­e­ments such as:

  • io­dine (in­volved in thy­roid gland func­tion),
  • cal­ci­um (in­volved in bone and mus­cle tis­sue con­struc­tion),
  • mag­ne­sium (helps ab­sorb trace el­e­ments and vi­ta­mins)
  • and many oth­ers.

Process de­scrip­tion

Blood ves­sels di­late in hot wa­ter, which al­lows mi­croele­ments to be ab­sorbed more eas­i­ly. More­over, sea salt baths help re­lieve mus­cle ten­sion. Chamomile, mint, and thyme have an­tibac­te­ri­al prop­er­ties and soothe the skin. The es­sen­tial oils in lemon zest lift the mood.
