I’ve used Epsom salts in a warm bath as a way to relieve muscle aches for years, but never realized that there was another option – a better option, with a much higher mineral concentration that Epsom salts. But it turns out that Dead Sea Salts provide more relief than Epsom salts because of the higher mineral concentration! Adovia sent me a package of their Dead Sea Bath Salts to review, and I love them!
I’ve tried other products from Adovia with positive results – their Dead Sea Mud Shampoo and their Moisturizing Day Cream – so I was already somewhat familiar with the company and the quality of their products. Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salt is a finer grained salt, so it dissolves faster in your bath water. Formulated with over 26 essential minerals, these bath salts rejuvenate, exfoliate, and soften while they soothe. There are no additives, colors, or scents added to these bath salts.
Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salt can relieve a variety of symptoms. My focus was on soothing my sore, aching muscles, and I did find this product to work better than Epsom salt. It’s a great product to soothe muscle aches or the pain that comes with conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. But the mineral rich salts of the Dead Sea are also great for relief from dry skin due to psoriasis, dermatitis, or eczema.
To use Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salt, you just fill the tub with warm water, pour in the salt, and then soak and enjoy. You add about a cup of salts into the tub while the water is running, or after the tub has filled. Let the salts dissolve before you get in, and then soak for about 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. You can use them every day if you want. I also used these salts to mix up a body scrub – I combined ½ cup of the salts with ¼ cup of fractionated coconut oil and a tablespoon of honey. A few drops of essential oil (like lemon or lavender) can provide additional benefits and a lovely scent. (I used lemon in mine).
