Himalayan Salt Baths are a therapeutic practice originating in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, used for thousands of years by Tibetan monks. With the popularity of Ayurvedic and Yoga becoming popular worldwide, the salt bath has become an increasingly popular therapeutic treatment. More people are choosing to take a relaxing bath instead of using the hot shower systems. Here at Mauli, we are big supporters of the endless benefits of Himalayan Salt Bath Salts, with all of our products being natural and chemical-free.

After your first Pink Himalayan salt, it is important to maintain your new improved health. If after your first relaxing experience you are ready to go back to your regular bathing routine, follow the instructions in your cleansing product. Do not exceed the recommended time limit. If at any time you feel too ill to continue your treatment, call your local spa to make alternate arrangements or stop treatment altogether.
To maintain the health benefits, Himalayan Salt Baths should always be made with the finest quality, pure salt. Always remember to rinse your hair and skin only in cold water. Avoid using harsh detergents when washing and rinse in cold. Avoid heavy soaps or perfumes when using your salts. After your first visit to the spa, return to re-test your Himalayan Salt Baths, re-determine if you need to add any additional minerals such as calcium or magnesium.
When you take your Himalayan salt bath, use the ceramic well-made tubs. These tubs allow the heat from the water to penetrate through the surface of the rocks, providing maximum absorption. Use a non-slip mat on the bathroom floor and place a soft towel and washcloth on the tub. It is important to place the tub in the direction of your body's natural flow, this way the warm enough air will circulate around your body and keep you warm enough during the entire soaking experience.
The steam can be turned into relaxing music by using essential oils and flower scents. Try using flowery Essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, chamomile, gardenia, orange blossom, or geranium, blended with warm water and Epsom salts. Commercially available Himalayan Salt Bath products usually contain lavender or other essential oils and natural botanical scent, these products are generally warm enough to dissolve the salt, however, it is important to thoroughly soak the product in the tub for at least 5 minutes prior to adding the essential oils. Before using any of the Himalayan salt baths products or essential oils, please check the ingredients label to confirm that these products are safe for use in sensitive skin.
In order to reap the full benefits of the relaxing Himalayan Salt Baths soak, it is important to carefully follow the instructions for use. For the best results soak in at least two pounds of water per body weight. This measurement is the bare minimum recommended for proper soaking. It may take several soaking sessions before you achieve the body temperature and relaxed state desired, but as you become accustomed to the healing process, you will find that it only takes a few minutes each time you bathe.
