Spa Salt Bar

Salt Soap Bars.  A combination of natural soap, a sea salt bath, and salt scrub.
                                   Pure Home Spa Luxury !

Natural sea salt is rich in skin nourishing minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium and iodine.

As a skin benefit sea salt cleanses and detoxifies as well as increases blood circulation and helps in
restoring the Ph value of the skin.  It makes dry or rough skin really soft, smooth.
An added benefit is is relaxes skin muscles.

Dead Sea salt is salt that is extracted from the water of the Dead Sea which is a salt lake located
between Jordan and Israel.  The water there has 29% salt, compared to 4% in the oceans.

Dead Sea salt has tremendous therapeutic benefits as it is known to be effective in helping with
common skin ailments such as acne and psoriasis as well as reducing inflammation and improving
skin hydration.  It is also known to relieve allergic reaction by cleansing and detoxifying due to its
high concentration of bromide and magnesium.    It's minerals maintain skin moisture levels, nourish
the cells and are reported to help with fatigue!   It's mineral content far exceeds regular sea salt and
as such has more healing properties.

Dead Sea salt with its high magnesium level will sweat a little in a salt soap bar, so I combined it
with Mediterraneum Sea salt for a luxurious and highly effective spa bar.

There are a few different ways to make spa salt soap bars, this is just one.

With its lovely salt line consisting of the two sea salts and finely ground calendula and corn flowers,
this bar works great on your weary, dry feet and heels as an exfoliater and hydrator and soother.  
Olive oil and castor oil make up the body of this bar, blended in are pure essential oils of tangerine, peppermint, eucalyptus, lemongrass and a dash of patchouli.   This bar can be used as a lovely
shaving soap. Best used with warm to hot water to melt butters. Not a latherer.

Note:  sorry all bars of this limited edition soap have been sold

Salt soap is one of many soaps that are on my list of soaps to make. You did great! Your bar looks wonderful!

Val, thanks. It was a fun bar to make, it smells incredible. The next salt bar I make will be probably be with the salt all through it, like a solid salt scrub. Do you think sugar would work the same way as salt does?

very informative and it was worth reading. I did enjoy and learn new things. Cheers!

Thanks Vincent, I appreciate the comments. This salt bar was alot of fun to make and use, it dosn't make alot of lather due to the high olive oil content and salt in it, it has almost a lotion feel to it.
Have a great day, Anna
