On those days when you come home feeling dead tired, unwind and revitalize with this Dead Sea Home Detox Bath Remedy
Need some TLC? What better way to unwind and remind yourself just how important you are than with a hot, soothing bath? The Dead Sea has been nature's restorative bath since the beginning of time and has been used for medicinal properties and visited by people around the globe as a result. People are jumping across oceans to soak in the Dead Sea because of the high mineral content in the water. Most people are extremely deficient in magnesium alone and can reap immediate results after a soak in a salt bath. Before you jump on a plane to the Middle East, try making your own bath salts right at home to soothe sore muscles, nourish and moisturize skin, and detoxify cells.
