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 .
Our Fine Dead Sea Salt variety is white in color and has a grainy consistency, similar to that of raw sugar. 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.
Body Soak Recipe:
In a small bowl, mix 6 drops Tangerine, 6 drops Grapefruit Pink, and 6 drops Mandarin Essential Oils with 1 tablespoon of honey into 2 cups Dead Sea Mineral Salts. Hop into the bath water and wet your body - don’t make the water too hot or you will get sleepy and relaxed rather than refreshed! Stand while in the bath, and take a handful of the salt mixture at a time and scrub down your entire body. Let the mixture fall down into the tub. Soak for no more than 20 minutes, as this mixture is to refresh and rejuvenate you. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin afterwards!

Rating: The quality and price is fantastic. The salts dissolve quickly in the bath, and help eliminate toxins. What more can you ask for! If you are low if magnesium then this is an added bonus to your nice relaxing detox baths.
Rating: My skin feels SO soft and I look forward to baths. My husband uses it as well. He had some dry spots on his skin and is now enjoying soft skin. Great for diabetics and people with problem skin. There is no scent and they melt very quickly into bath water. I have yet to put them into scrubs and soap, but looking forward to it!

Rating: I always keep this salt at home for a relaxing bath, when I feel tension in my muscles. I also use it in my salt bars. A very good product.

Rating: The Dead Sea salts are wonderful for those suffering from psoriasis. I have been purchasing the salts for several months for my son who uses them regularly to soak away the excess skin cells and to relax. We usually put 3-4 cups of the salts in a tub for an "instant ocean". The bath has a refreshing scent and makes a good substitute for a swim in the salt water when the real ocean is far away!
Rating: can't beat the price even with shipping. Great quality

Rating: I bought this Sensuous by Nature Dead Sea Mineral Bath Salt I think is this product that I am commenting on, not sure though so maybe the sales rep could double check but anyway I got this with the ideea of using it for body scrub treatments, the granulation I find it too big for that, but thanks to one of the reviews for other scrub I will be using a coffee grinder to make it finer :-) but the scent- WOW!!! - Is very spaish, it smells botanical, and I am planning to use it for back scrubs treatments, body scrubs and maybe give small jars for Christmas to my clients after the treatments as gifts :-) I know they will come back for more after that :-) Definetely a good buy, and for the price, come on 1 KG -$8 Cad. can't beat that for sure...
Rating: Love this salt! Excellent price, excellent value and holds a scent wonderfully! Very popular with myself and friends and makes a wondeful gift. IWill definitely keep ordering!

Rating: These salts are wonderful, and they smell so fresh on their own that I sometimes use them without EO's...
Of course blending is the fun part, and so far I've made 4 different types of bath salts...My favorite is a Detox blend with Patchouli, 5 fold Lemon, Basil & Juniper Berry....Smells so good and relaxing too.

Rating: When I opened my jars of Dead Sea Salt I was surprised at first to find moisture! But then while I was perusing the NDA forums it is the brine from the sea salt that makes it seem a little soft to the touch. But sea water is just as 'nutritious' as the concentrated salt itself. Nice fine texture, perfect for homemade body polishes which is exactly what I plan to do with mine!
By:Christine, Burnaby, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Nov-2008
