#4: It will reduce inflammatory skin conditions
Because of sea salt’s balancing effects, it’s highly effective at soothing inflammatory skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema
and redness – no matter how severe.
#5: It will remove dead skin from the surface
Last but not least, sea salt acts as a natural exfoliator and helps loosen and slough off dead skin cells to reveal healthy, renewed skin.
How to take a warm salt bath
Fill up your bathtub with warm water and add a good amount of sea salt.
Put on some relaxing music to set the mood.
If you have, put a plant next to your tub. Plants are shown to help reduce mental stress.
Dim the lights and light some candles.
Add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil, which has supreme moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties for the skin.
Add two drops each of tangerine and sandalwood essential oil. You can also use lemon, bergamot or orange in place of the tangerine. Other than smelling delightful, these oils work as a sedative and soothe the nervous system, reducing anxiety and tension when inhaled. At the same time, they’re uplifting on the mood and will put you in a relaxed, happy state.
It’s as simple as that!
