Complete Guide About How to make dead sea salt

How to make dead sea salt?

If you are looking to learn about how to make dead sea salt then you are in right place. Salt from the Dead Sea is considered to be one of the healthiest salts in the world due to its high concentration of minerals. In fact, the best natural remedy for people with psoriasis is said to be bathing in the Dead Sea without sun exposure. This has something to do with its composition: many minerals, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and bromine.

Dead Sea Salt generally have three different types:

 1) Black/Dark Gray,  

The black/dark gray has been filtered through charcoal, so it will not absorb as much moisture but contains more minerals than white salts, so its benefits for your skin are a little more intense.

2) Silver/White,

The silver/white variety is very fine and light, so it dissolves easily, provides instant gratification, and will not leave your skin feeling oily afterward.

3) Pink. 

Pink salts have been mixed with clay to have a slight color to them, but the minerals removed from the black salt have been added back into the mixture, making them even more beneficial for your skin than their white counterparts!

How to make Dead Sea salt foot scrub?

To make a Dead Sea salt foot scrub, you will need:

  1. One cup of sea salt. Not just ordinary table salt but actual medicinal-grade sea salt from the Dead Sea. And not just any kind of sea salt either – it should be black, gray, or pink with a lumpy consistency rather than powdery.
  2. One teaspoon of fresh lemon juice.
  3. Two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Two teaspoons of water.
  5. A blender or food processor (you can mix everything in a bowl with a spoon instead).

Okay, now that we’ve gotten all the ingredients together, let’s take a look at how to make dead sea salt foot scrub easily and quickly.

Process

  1. Put the sea salt in the blender/food processor and blend it well until it becomes a light powder with no big chunks left. If you don’t have one of these appliances, put the sea salt in a bowl and use a spoon to crush any large pieces.
  2. Add the lemon juice and olive oil and blend again until all the ingredients are well combined (it will start looking like wet sand).
  3. Add water and continue to mix for about 5 minutes, or however long it takes for the mixture to become nice and creamy with no chunks left.
  4. Scoop out the finished salt scrub with your hands and use it to rub all over your feet while they are still dry. You can also let it sit on your feet for 10 minutes or so before rinsing them off in the shower if you want to get an even more profound moisturizing effect.
  5. Rinse off the Dead Sea salt foot scrub and enjoy your newly moisturized skin!
  6. Lastly, make sure to brush off any of the salt that got stuck on the bottom of your feet before getting dressed, as it will most likely leave a ring around your ankles if you don’t remove it before putting socks on.

How to make Dead Sea salt bath?

To make a Dead Sea salt bath, you will need:

  1. One cup of sea salt. Not just ordinary table salt but actual medicinal-grade sea salt from the Dead Sea. And not just any kind of sea salt either – it should be black, gray, or pink in color with a lumpy consistency rather than powdery.
  2. Optional: one or two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to further brighten and freshen your skin.
  3. One or two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil to moisturize and nourish your skin.
  4. A large tub or container can hold at least 20 liters/5 gallons of water (you can also use a sink, bathtub, jacuzzi, etc.)
  5. Enough hot water to fill the container up to your waist.
  6. A towel or two to sit on while you soak, plus some excellent relaxing music or a good book if you prefer.
  7. Optional: essential oil of your choice (for example, lavender, rosemary, etc.) for aromatherapy purposes.
  8. Optional: a pinch of baking soda to alleviate itching.
  9. Optional: one or two crushed aspirin pills for extra therapeutic relief – especially effective if you have inflammations in your joints, muscles, or organs. Note that aspirin should not be used without consulting with your doctor if it can interact with other medications or health conditions you might have.
  10. Optional: a couple of tablespoons of freshly grated ginger root for extra therapeutic relief – especially effective if you have inflammations in your joints, muscles, or organs. Note that ginger should not be used without consulting with your doctor if it can interact with other medications or health conditions you might have.
  11. A cap or a shower cap to prevent any hair from getting wet.
  12. A good book or magazine (preferably not too exciting and full of suspense) to read while you soak and relax.
  13. Some thick cotton socks to keep your feet nice and warm during the treatment, plus some big fluffy towels to dry yourself off with afterward.

Note:

If your skin is at all broken or tender, either from an infection or an injury, be sure to give it some extra TLC before diving into the salt bath by applying some aloe Vera gel, fresh lemon juice, or even baking soda paste on top of it.

Also, take special care not to get the saltwater in your eyes and ears (use a cap to cover your hair, and be extra careful around the ear area).

Finally

Do not hesitate to add or remove any of the optional ingredients you desire. You can also use different salts like magnesium salt, natural sugars like honey and molasses, and fruit extracts like papaya, guava, etc. The possibilities are endless!

Have fun and enjoy your homemade Dead Sea salt bath! It’s probably one of the most rejuvenating experiences you can get in a long time.
