Himalayan salts have multiple uses thanks to its mineral rich properties and healing effects. This makes it the perfect addition to your self care routine. Here are the three ways we here at Mauli love to use our Himalayan salts..
1. Treat yourself to a Himalayan salt foot soak
One of the major benefits of Himalayan salts is its ability to help you skin retain moisture. This makes it one of the most ideal ingredients for a foot soak at home that will make you feel like you’re visiting a luxury spa. Himalayan salts also aid healing and relaxation which makes it the perfect self-care ritual if you suffer from cracked, sore, tired or blistering feet.
How to give yourself a Himalayan foot soak:
Start by adding ⅛ cup of our Himalayan Healing Salts for every gallon of water in your foot bath. Pour the desired amount of salts under the warm running water and allow them to gently dissolve, releasing its healing minerals. Allow your feet to soak in the solution for 15 to 20 minutes. Why not combine this with a good book or calming music to give yourself the proper at-home-spa feel? As you relax, take a deep breath, inhaling the steam and soothing aroma.
2. Take a relaxing Himalayan salts bath
A Himalayan salts bath is one of the most relaxing rituals you can experience. Soak your cares, aches and pains away in a warm, healing bath. The benefits of this are practically endless. Not only do Himalayan salts moisturise and nourish your skin, but the vital synergy balances out pH levels too. A soak in a Himalayan salt bath will deeply relax tired and achy bones, cleanse your body of physical toxins and leave your mind and body in perfect harmony.
How to run a perfect Himalayan salts bath:
Under the warm running water of your bath, pour a handful of salts and allow for them to dissolve. Soak your body for 15 minutes, allowing your skin to fully absorb the powerful minerals released by the Himalayan salts and for your toxins to be released into the water. Your skin will feel soft and plump as the salts stimulate your circulation and moisturise deeply.
3. Use Himalayan salt as a body scrub
Himalayan salt provides the perfect texture for exfoliating. Our Reawaken Himalayan Hand & Body Scrub uses Himalayan salt to buff away dull dead skin cells, and leave you feeling petal-soft and glowing. Regular exfoliation with our Himalayan salt scrub will also boost your production of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin feeling plump and youthful, win win. Added organic oils such as moringa, coconut, argan and free-radical busting vitamin E will leave you feeling thoroughly nourished and irresistibly soft.
How to exfoliate using Himalayan Scrub:
Whilst you are soaking in a warm bath or taking a soothing shower, massage our Rawaken Himalayan Scrub between your palms and begin to gently massage your skin. Start from your feet and work upwards, stimulating your circulation and buffing away dead skin cells. Massage deep into your body to ensure all of the powerful minerals completely absorb into your skin. Then simply rinse off with warm water and feel the smoothness of your skin. You can also use our Awaken Himalayan Hand & Body Scrub as part of a hand and foot ritual, perfect for after your healing salt foot soak.
