The benefits of bath salt go far beyond simple exfoliating dead cells. Soaking in a tub of bath salts can help relax, release muscle tension, aid in helping control athletes foot, eczema, calluses and other skin irritations.
Depending on ingredients used bath salts can even help boost the immune system by cleansing toxins from the body (detoxifying). We have added organic Bentonite Clay to do just that!

Our recipe was formulated to cleanse, heal and nourish your skin.
Turn faucet on to fill tub. Using Scoop included in package, use two to four scoopfuls of salt – (or however many scoops you would like). Sprinkle under the running water so that it can dissolve completely before you enter the tub. You can also add a teaspoonful of coconut oil for a more supple soak but remember it could make your tube a bit slippery so care should be taken exiting and entering the tub should you chose to add the oil. Soak for 15-20 minutes, rinse with water, and pat dry. Don’t bathe afterwards. You’ll be washing away the nutrients before they can be absorbed into your skin Save your soap bath another time!
As always, we go a step beyond what most offer commercially. We only use the highest quality salts, clays and oils. It is not just about what salts are used but also the ratio used in our own recipe.
Himalayan Salt – Millions of years ago, as the great mountain ranges were being formed, these ancient sea salt deposits were preserved and protected from pollutants by layers of volcanic eruptions. Now careful and sustainable harvesting brings us some of the finest, most beneficial bath salts available anywhere in the world. Himalayan contain 84 valuable trace minerals, giving these salts an appealing natural pink coloring. These salts are amazing for maintain the PH balance of your skin and can help reduce muscle tension.
Dead Sea Salt - Cleopatra was known as the “woman who time could not wither” and attributed that to the benefits of this special sea salt. Dead Sea salts are made up of a high percentage of magnesium, sulfates and potassium which are known to reduce pain and inflammation from arthritis. High mineral contents of this salt can be both cleansing and detoxifying for your skin.
Epsom Salt – This salt is named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, and is not a salt at all but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are absorbed easily through the skin, making it easy to absorb its amazing health benefits. Magnesium helps reduce inflammation. Sulfates help with the absorption of nutrients and flush toxins.
French Grey Sea Salt – This salt is formed as the sea water flows into the Guerande marshes, in France, during high tides. As the water settles into a settling pond, evaporating and leaving behind a crystallized salt. It is then hand-harvested by salt workers, using skills and methods that are over a thousand years old. This salt is high mineral content that includes magnesium and many other trace minerals. Soaking with Grey Sea Salts helps to re-mineralize the body, maintain balance and promote healthy skin.
Bentonite Clay - Bentonite comes from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments here in the U.S. This clay has been used to help in mineral deficiencies, and to bind toxins (detoxify) whether from the skin or internally. Bentonite Clay is also one of the most effective and powerful healing clays.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E oil protects the skin against cell mutation in the sun and pollution. It's also an anti-inflammatory, so it calms and hydrates sensitive skin.
Lavender: Eases nervous tension, relieves pain, disinfects scalp and skin, enhances blood circulation and treats respiratory problems. The benefits of lavender can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties, hence the best scent to treat skin disorders including wounds and sunburns.
Eucalyptus: The health benefits of eucalyptus oil and its properties include anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, as a deodorant, antiseptic, to treat bacterial infections on the skin, stimulating, and other medicinal qualities.
Rosemary: Rosemary oil contains properties that can kill bacteria, fungi and other viruses on your skin. Many use it on minor wounds and burns, or on skin that may be affected by dermatitis, acne, eczema and even psoriasis. Rosemary oil can help to stimulate cell renewal and infuse skin with moisture to improve circulation.

Food Grade Bentonite Clay
Most store bought deodorants and anti-perspirants contain both chemicals and additives. Since sweating is your body’s natural cooling mechanism (in some cases you could actually die if you didn’t sweat) you have to think that commercial products must be using potent ingredients to keep you from sweating! Here is a list of what many over the counter products contain:
Aluminum–Evidence links aluminum not only to to cancer, but also Alzheimer’s Disease
Formaldehyde - Is a well known carcinogen. You can find this in carpets too (that’s another debate for a later time).
Phthalates - These are Endocrine disruptors (can also be found in some plastics) and causes hormone imbalance and infertility
Parabens - This is a hormone disruptor. Also Parabens have been found in biopsied breast tissue that has been dissected due to breast cancer.
Antibacterial Ingredients - These too are endocrine disruptors and have can affect our immune system.
Propylene Gycol - You may know this as Antifreeze! Believe it or not this is in many cosmetic products. EEW!
Triclosan – Is a chemical used in cosmetics and deodorants to kill bacteria which can impair thyroid function.
Because the skin is the body’s largest organ, anything and everything you put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream. Many of these toxic ingredients are also stored in fat cells which surround your armpit area Vigilance on what you use from deodorant to cosmetics is key!
The American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute say there may not be conclusive evidence that links deodorant chemicals to cancer but there is lab evidence to include what is found during breast cancer biopsies.
Using a armpit detox can help pull some of these chemicals and additives from your skin and underlying tissue. It can also help the organic and natural deodorant work better.
You can always find Food Grade Bentonite Clay yourself but that require you have to buy a large quantity. We have made it simple for you to purchase exactly what you need to include a wooden spoon to stir your mixture.
Simply follow instructions on the bag. Remember not to use any metal, instead use the wooden spoon provided and mix in a glass, ceramic or plastic bowl. Mix to the consistency of sour cream or lotion. Apply thin layer and let sit for about 10 mins. If it is irritating, rinse immediately and pat dry. Try again the next day. Your arm pit may appear red after use but that is normal unless it is irritated or itchy. This could indicate that you may have a light allergy although I have never heard of anyone being allergic to Bentonite Clay…!
