Besides flavoring foods, it's believed there are more than 10,000 uses for salt. Bath salts are definitely one of them.

The combination of water and sea salts is the basis of many powerful remedial spa treatments. Sea salt therapy is also known to effectively assist in cell rejuvenation. This is because sea salt stimulates a healthy exchange of toxins and minerals between the blood and the water. When you are in a salt bath, the temperature should be below 37-degrees-Celsius (98.6F). Taking a bath with salts, bubbles and scented candles surrounding you will make your bathroom a haven of aromatherapy.
Remember that while salt cleans the pores and detoxifies the body, it also dries out the skin. So drink plenty of water during and even after your soak to keep the skin hydrated. Also after bathing, a massage with dry salt can help to remove dead skin cells and maintain blood circulation underneath the skin. To make your bath even more luxurious, play soft music and light candles. The romantic, relaxing atmosphere will rejuvenate your body and soul.
