A Sea Salt Soak Could Make Your Cleanse Even Better

sea-salt-shells

A sea salt soak is a therapeutic remedy that can enhance your cleansing experience or promote relaxation. Sea salt is a great purifier that helps to rid the body of negative energy. It is also alkaline, which helps to lower the acidity of the body. When you soak in a the sea salt bath, the saltwater penetrates your pores and is absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, the salt helps to remove accumulated lactic acid in the body. Lactic acid, which can build up in muscle tissue and make you feel stiff or sore, becomes present in the body after strenuous workouts or heavy activity.

 

Sea salt and Epsom salt are the only recommended salts to use for soaks. Sea salt is widely available and comes in many varieties. Avoid regular table salt at all costs. If you don’t have sea salt, you can use:

  • Celtic Salt
  • Himalayan Salt
  • French Salt
  • Atlantic Salt

 

How To Do A Sea Salt Soak:

Begin by running hot water that you can tolerate in your bathtub. While the tub is filling up, add 1.5 cups of sea salt to the water. If you so desire, you can add essential oils  or Dherbs formulated bath drops to the water for added benefits. You can use the essential oil combinations below with your sea salt soak.

 

For A Calming & Relaxing Soak: Add 2-3 drops of French Lavender, 2-3 drops of Peppermint, and 2 drops of Roman or Yellow Chamomile to the bath.

To Alleviate Aches & Pain: Add 2-3 drops of Peppermint, 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus, and 2 drops of Wintergreen to the bath.

For A Spiritual Soak: Add 2 drops of Frankincense, 2 drops of Myrrh, 2-3 drops of Sandalwood, 2-3 drops of Davana, 2-3 drops of Oakmoss to the bath.

For A Detoxifying Soak: Add 2 drops of Oregano oil, 2 drops of Parsley, 2 drops of Hyssop, 2 drops of Eucalyptus, 2 drops of Turmeric, 2 drops of Juniper Berry and 3 drops of Tea Tree oil to the bath.

 

After deciding which soak you are going to use, enter the tub and relax. To fully absorb the benefits of the sea salt and essential oils, soak in the tub for about 45-60 minutes. Relax, meditate, listen to music, read a book, sing if you want to, and try to focus on the health of your body. Before you get out of the tub, rinse off in lukewarm water. Scrub yourself with a loofah brush or wash yourself thoroughly with a towel.

 

Following the soak, you may like to use a moisturizing oil on your body. Be sure to use a natural, botanical oil on the skin because these can help the skin to breathe properly. Some excellent skin oils to try are:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Kukui Oil
  • Avocado Oil

 

Health Benefits of Sea Salt Soaks

Sea salt soaks offer a wide variety of health benefits, helping your body to recover in many ways. They can also be very therapeutic to the spirit. Regular practice of sea salt soaks can be beneficial to those suffering from:

  • Dry skin disorders
  • Acne
  • Musculoskeletal pain and swelling
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Arthritis pain
  • Sports injuries

Some of the internal benefits of sea salt soaks include:

  • Reduced stress levels
  • Insomnia relief
  • Increased circulation
  • Expelled toxins from the body

 

By practicing the soaking ritual on a regular basis, you may achieve increased overall health and wellness, in addition to a renewed sense of spirituality. Focus on the healing of your body while soaking in the tub. Keep your thoughts positive and reaffirming to help balance your body and your mind.

    Q: Thanks for the great web site! MY question is what's the best way to get sodium. I thought un-refined sea salt was the best, but the salt article says "eat this salt only if you must." The great thing about pure sea salt is that it all or almost all the minerals the body needs! So what's the best way to get all the mineral and to stay in balance? Also is there a way to get Epsom salt that is sodium sulfate not magnesium sulfate? Is it a good idea to bath in the "good" Epsom salt.

    A:

    You're welcome, Beloved!

    The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).

    Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.

    But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.

    In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.

    I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.

    You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.

    Q: I have been taking 35% hydrogen peroxide baths also with Sea Salt and the antiviral drops but I am not sure if I am still oxygenating my body enough? What percentage of the peroxide is being absorbed into my system when I soak for 50 - 60 minutes daily? The hair on my body has all turned golden due to the peroxide I believe? I have also been drinking green tea thru the detox. I also wanted to seek you advice on drinking White tea or licorice tea. I have read that the acid found in licorice tea kills off the herpes virus? If your advice is to take the tea, can I do it along with the FULL BODY DETOX or ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and what dosage should I use?

    A:

    OF COURSE YOU ARE! NEARLY HALF OF IT! THE LONGER YOU SOAK, THE BETTER! WITHOUT A DOUBT! HOW MUCH PEROXIDE PER BATH ARE YOU USING? THIS IS OKAY! YOU CAN TAKE THE TEA DOING THE DETOX AND AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE.

    Q: I am currently on the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN after being done with the FULL BODY DETOX. My question is in regards to the 45 min bath. Can I use regular bath tap water for this bath I read somewhere that the use of chlorine water can lead to chlorine absobtion and that is not good for you. I am currently taking a bath in 2 box of sea salt, 5 drops or virus buster and 2 cups of 35% hydrogen peroxide. Please advice if this is right or am I harming myself in anyway with my combination.

    A:

    If you can filter the water, do so! This is best! If you can't, don't worry about it!

    Q: Is sea salt and warm water a good natural laxative? If so how often do you recommend the use of sea salt for elimination? I was reading The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and it gives this recommendation, along with drinking lemon water mixed with organic syrup and cayenne pepper. Is it safe to give myself an enema 2xs per day using a hot water bottle filled with fresh squeezed organic lemon and distilled water? Asking this because Bzod had me to listen to 88.3 today here in Cincinnati and the guy (Mike) was telling how he does this regularly and has great results.

    A:

    Yes, sea salt in water is a mild laxative!

    You can do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. 

    You can also consume the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice) if you choose. You can drink this as much as you like depending on how you feel.

    And yes, you can perform enemas 2X a day! Enemas are very helpful for health!

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: I purchesed both the FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. During week 3 of the Detox, I had a significant herpes breakout on by buttocks. Therefore, I opened the anti-viral kit and started doing the bath with the sea salt and the oil etc, and used it all up with in a week. Maybe I used too much but everything healed up well. Now I am into the first week of the Anti-Viral kit and on day 3 a small breakout started, but I am out of the Oil and roll on. Do you have a suggestion of something else I can put into the bath water besides the sea salt? I have some tea tree oil. I tried to purchase some Melissa oil, but could not find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    A:

    Use tea tree oil, lavender oil, etc. in your bath water. Add hydrogen peroxide (1 cup) as well. You can oil down with OZ OIL after the bath!

    Q:

    A: We would recommend giving her the Lung Extract, Mucus Formula and Chest Salve. These formula's all have a different approach in addressing asthma, they all help recondition the health of the lungs. We suggest giving her only one capsule a day from the Mucus Formula. The Chest Salve is a product that we usually only include in our Respiratory Cleanse. Because it helps improve the health of the lungs, we would sell it separately. You can also incorporate the Respiratory Aid Extract into her regimen. Please take time to read the following article: Respiratory Health -http://dherbs.com/articles/respiratory-health-67.html Product Links: Lung Extract - https://www.dherbs.com/store/lung-extract-p-88.html Mucus Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/mucus-Formula-formula-p-50.html Respiratory Aid - https://www.dherbs.com/store/respiratory-aid-p-530.html

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: I have questions about the Chakra Elixirs. Can one take all 8 drops of your chakra elixirs, (this include the Love, and Healing Elixirs for the 4th chakra) at once? If not, then what would be the recommended practice, if I wanted to utilize all 8 elixirs? Could I also take the Pineal Elixir along with your recommendation on taking the chakra elixirs?

    A:

    While you could take all the Chakra Elixirs together (and even the Pineal Glad stimulator), we'd recommend that you take them separately so each chakra can have it's necessary time to be tuned up.

    Q: Dasani water, if I remember correctly, was banned from the U.K. It contains salt as well as potassium chloride. Essentia contains calcium chloride, as well as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate, dipotassium phosphate. Are all the ingredients in Essentia safe?

    Q: After the laser surgery last year, I have been taking the Eye Formula for high pressure 4 months now. I take 8 tablets a day and I use the an MSM Eye Drops and my pressure drops and my eyes feel very healthy. The doctor told me come back in a year, but about a week ago I started to feel pain in my eyes sometimes sharp sometimes less but all the time. Please advise.

    A:

    Double up on your eye regimen! Eat more blueberries. Take extra capsules of Eye Formula, etc. It would be a good idea for you to perform the Eye Kit. The Eye Kit includes six distinct formulas that are created with the intention of helping your body maintain, restore, and fend off any pending eye issues. These formulas not only are meant to help nourish, repair, and strengthen the eyes, but they also are meant to help maintain a healthy circulation throughout the body.

    Q: I would like to know if what I'm doing is okay. This is way before we found dherbs site and the products on the internet. We read on the internet that drinking a teaspoon of natural black sea salt or any sea salt in 32oz warm water every morning is good for bowel movement. We have been doing it for awhile now. Is it too much to take it with your products? I lost some weight after my FULL BODY DETOX but not too much on my stomach. What do you recommend l should use to get rid of the tummy area? I bought FIBROID BUSTER TEA I am I drinking it because l feel there is Fibroids down there. Should l also continue taking my BUNNY RABBIT formula with Fibroid tea? In my last email l mentioned my husband had mild stroke. Now he's having spasms all over his body especially when he's sleeping at night. Why is he having it and what else can he use for that? We are using all these wonderful products on the inside and still have un-even skin. Is it okay to use AMBI products for more youthful skin then detox every four months? If not, when are we going to see your skin products on the market?

    A:

    We don't recommend the drinking of sea salt. For tummy reduction: exercise (perform abs, sit ups) and take BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE FORMULA. You can take your herbs and tea together. No big deal! Spasms? Clearly the â€HEALING CRISIS†(read the article by this same title). The skin will improve in time. Don't focus on it!
