Why Buy & Use Our Salt Therapy
All of our salts and clay's are sourced from high quality suppliers. Bathing is a highly effective way of absorbing essential minerals, and distributing it to cells that need it. It is a superior method for safely increasing minerals and trace element levels in the body.
Magnesium is critical to the day to day functions of our bodies. It is essential for our skin and cells and it plays an important role in nerve and muscle function. Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body. In fact, every cell in the body contains it, and needs it to function, yet it is reported that many people are deficient in magnesium.
Magnesium is well known for and particularly useful to relieve sore muscles and joints, reduce pain related to magnesium deficiency and for replenishing depleted soft tissues. It also assists to help calm nerves and reduce systemic bodily stress. Magnesium supports a healthy immune system and is essential to balance calcium intake.
Additional benefits of magnesium include greater energy, better sleep, improved cognitive function, alleviate headaches, improved circulation, reduce depression and premenstrual tension. In addition, magnesium helps remove toxins and metabolic waste products.
Epsom salt and magnesium chloride flakes are both excellent sources of magnesium but they both also have other specific benefits is outlined below.
We source Epsom Salt from a natural deposit in Germany, they are rare and very special as they are not a commercially compounded mix. Epsom salt, which are scientifically known as Magnesium Sulphate supply the body with Magnesium and Sulphur which are absolutely essential minerals for health and wellbeing.
As well as increasing magnesium levels, Epsom salt plays an integral role in assisting the body to rid itself of toxins, sedate the nervous system and supply us with sulphates. Sulphur is critical for growth and socialisation hormones so increasing sulphur in the body can improve socialisation and growth issues.
These readily absorbable sulphates can also attach to phenols in our system and set them up for being excreted. This process is known as the sulphation pathway in our body. Symptoms of phenol intolerance include night waking, night sweats, irritability, eczema and other skin irritations. The source of these phenols can come from many environmental and dietary exposures such as food additives and preservatives.
Hence Epsom Salt has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of people with Autism and many other neurological conditions as many of these people struggle to deal with phenols and are low in sulphates.
Magnesium Chloride Flakes

We source Bentonite Clay, which is an ancient volcanic ash, scientifically known as Sodium Bentonite from a natural deposit in Australia. It has been very finely milled resulting in a silky smooth powdery clay with many health benefits and uses. In particular Bentonite Clay is negatively charged and when mixed with water swells like a sponge. Bacteria, sebum that causes acne, toxins and free radicals are drawn into this sponge through electrical attraction, and once there, they are bound and removed.
This helps to prevent and reduce skin conditions such as pimples, blotches, and infections, and to relieve eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis. It also helps lighten sunspots, acne scars or darkened patches by gently bleaching the skin. Bentonite Clay is also known to have an abundance of other beneficial minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron and potassium.
Bentonite should not be stored or mixed in metal containers or with a metal spoon as this could reduce its potency.
There are many carrier oils that are used in bathing products but we have chosen the best, Jojoba oil. a non-allergenic superfood for your skin. It is a classic oil that still forms the basis of many expensive skincare products. However, it is at its best without all of the additives, fillers and other chemicals.
Jojoba Oil contains many essential fatty acids, powerful antioxidants and is naturally rich in Vitamins A, D and E. Jojoba oil mimics our skin’s natural oils and can penetrate at a deeper level, locking in moisture to keep skin looking healthy and hydrated. Jojoba oil acts as moisturiser and forms a protective layer over the skin, forming a barrier to external irritants. It soothes dry skin and has anti-inflammatory properties which help to tame chaffing and chapping, reduce redness caused by drying, ease the effects of eczema, psoriasis and rosacea, and generally keep skin calm and comfortable. The Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in Jojoba oil help in skin repair and damage control.
Jojoba oil is wonderful for oily and acne prone skin. Oily skin is the result of overactive sebaceous glands in the skin. Oily skin can quickly gather dirt which can be the starting point of many skin problems. Rubbing Jojoba oil on to oily skin will give wonderful results. It seems counter intuitive to use oil, on oily skin, but surprisingly Jojoba oil can help reduce oiliness. This is by moderating sebum production, soothing the irritated skin, penetrating deep into pores and help control bacterial growth. When used regularly, Jojoba oil can control acne.
