The "Deader" the Better!

A bit morbid sounding perhaps, but when it comes to Dead Sea Salt it couldn't be more true. Mysticism behind the Dead Sea has existed since Biblical times due to the regions mineral rich waters known for their cleansing, healing, and rejuvenating qualities. To this day, it is still celebrated as a haven for health and beauty because of the mass concentration of trace elements and minerals! Salt extracted from the region has been attributed to detoxifying the body, stimulating natural circulation, restoring moisture balance to skin, as well as aiding in relieving arthritis symptoms. The most effective way of utilizing this amazing little mineral? Soak it up in a bath for around 20 minutes! We offer both Fine and Coarse varieties in our bulk beauty section. Fill a jar and stop by our Blending Bar to choose your essential oil to add a beautiful aroma, and voila! A spa-in-a-jar awaits you at Food For Thought!
