The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with far greater concentrations of minerals than any ocean (a concentration of 32% minerals compared to other seas, holding approximately 3%). Bromides and Iodine are known to be present in Dead Sea Salt, along with other minerals in a dried form, such as Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium and Potassium. All these minerals are believed to work together to assist in relaxing the body and soothes to provide a sense of well being .
The rough nature of the salt lends itself to skin scrubs (exfoliation) and can also be used with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). We recommend you try Dead Sea Salt as a body scrub, or just as a relaxing additive to your baths.
Please note: The large flat crystals in the salts are magnesium crystals.
Caution: Heart patients must follow the advice of their physician before taking baths in which magnesium is used.
Bath with Dead Sea Salt:
In a bowl, mix 4 drops Cedarwood, 6 drops Lavender, 6 drops Lemongrass Essential Oils and 1 Tablespoon of honey into 2 cups of Dead Sea Salts. Mix well, and pour into tub, then run water that is comfortably hot. Soak for at least 20 minutes to get the feeling of relaxation before bedtime. Apply a moisturizer to your skin, into which you have put 3 drops of Chamomile Essential Oil.

Rating: High quality dead sea salt! Helps reliefing muscle pain - back, neck, legs, sciatica - when using with bath. My first bag is nearly done and I have ordered a second one.

Rating: I love this salt for bath salts. It works perfectly! Very reasonably priced. Will buy again and again!
By:Zachary, Chalk River, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2014
Rating: I only bought 1KG to try this out, and made salt scrubs, bath salts, and sore muscle/foot soaks. All of them turned out great. Next time I'll buy more, and get a finer grain - the coarse is great for the bath stuff, but a little too harsh for the scrubs in my opinion (I ground it up a tad finer and it was great).

Rating: I have found bathing regularly, (at least twice a week) with NDA Dead Sea Salts has really helped reduce the pain and inflammation in my arthritic knee! It makes for a wonderfully relaxing bath and by creatively adding essential oil blends to the bath water or to the salts I have made this a ritual de-stress bath-time! I also use the Dead Sea Salts after an ayurvedic self abhy massage with avocado oil. I am totally reinvigorated and renewed after this!

Rating: I bought 25kgs of this a year ago and I am nearly tapped out! Time to order more soon and I definitely don't mind. No beating the price, either.
I am a massage therapist and constantly recommend this to clients with muscle soreness and/or fatigue.

Rating: I won't tell you how much research I did to find the best price. NDA won, hands down. I picked this up and since the move, they're closer to me! YEAH!! Definitely worth it. A great product. The 25kg size is awesome! ...and you get brownie points with your supplier. Seriously, thank you.

By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: I love the course dead sea salt. It really holds up to essential oils and looks great in a glass jar when laced with botanical herbs!
By:Crystal, Blackie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Sep-2009
Rating: These salts are incredible! After I add my herbs, flowers, spices and oils the salts look like crystals coloured by the herbs they are mixed with. My customers are immediately drawn to them and once they hold them in their hands they can't put them down. So, not only are these salt healing and soothing they present in a stunning fashion.

Rating: Add a bit of natural clay to colour the salts! Instead of petroleum dyes, you'll be adding therapeutic value to your bath salts!
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: Wow! This salt really holds up to a lot of EO's and it dissolves nicely in warm water. My dry skin is so much softer after a nice soak in the tub with this salt. A+++ quality at a very reasonable price.
By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Nov-2008
Rating: This is such a great product! it really helps my very dry winter skin, it really relaxes my muscles and relieves stress. The salts dissolve very well.
Rating: Amazingly strong. These salts are able to hold up to way more essential oils than you think they could without crumbling or melting. Yet they melt beautifully in your bathtub or foot spa. I highly recommend this product!
By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Nov-2008
Rating: Make yourself some bath salts with these mineral salts and some essential oils and dried flowers. Not only does it help aching muscles but any skin irritations can be soothed and the salts help to draw out any infections.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Dec-2006

Rating: My husband has serious psoriasis. This eases his itch and helps control some of the scaling.
Rating: This is top quality for a great price. Its perfect as my bath salts and leaves my skin soft and body relaxed. The addition of essential oils enhances the results.
By:Yvonne, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Feb-2006
Rating: I haven't needed it for joint pain, but the recipe included above is AWESOME! It leaves your skin absolutely glowing. I feared when I ordered it that the individual salt granules would be sharp-edged, but they aren't at all - perfect for body scrubbing!
By:Karen, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-May-2006
Rating: I concur with the other review regarding joint pain. As a massage therapist, I use this product at least once a week in a bath (2 cups of it) to refresh my tired, hard working body. My skin feels softer and relaxed over all. A great product to mix with essential oils such as cajeput for joint and muscle aches and pains, or any one of New Directions Lavendars. Superior quality!
Rating: Once again, New Directions has provided a superior product with pricing that none of their competitors could touch for the comparable item. They come through as the supplier "par excellence" every time!! My customers love this product and it can be marketed with or without fragrance. I use it personally for joint pain and I have customers that get relief with skin conditions. This is the real deal and I highly recommend the Dead Sea Mineral Salt from New Directions for all applications!!!!
