San Francisco Salt Company unveils a fresh new look for their popular bath and spa salts – a designer retail gift bag. Featuring a peek-a-boo window and an aroma valve which allow you to see and smell the bath salt within the bag prior to opening; and an artisan tin-tie closure to keep salts fresh, the bags are the perfect choice for gifting bath and spa salts.
San Francisco, CA (BlogWire) December 7, 2012
With a year full of improvements, including a complete re-branding and make over of their website, San Francisco Salt Company’s (SFSC) latest change comes as the result of much collected customer feedback and thoughtful design – a designer bag exclusively for the two pound gift option of their bath and spa salts.
“The two pound bag size of bath salt is the ideal size for gifts and retail, but until now it didn’t have the look best suited for something meant as a gift or for retail shelves,” says Lee Williamson, founder of SFSC. The new designer bags replace the previous clear stand-up pouches that although very popular didn’t quite hit the mark. Since introducing the new designer bags, sales on this item have increased over 1200% in the last 30 days compared to same sales last year.
“Our designer bags are a beautiful aqua color. It’s a very clean, modern look. The peek-a-boo window and aroma scent valve really set this packaging apart from other brands. It’s a nice touch to not only see the bath salts before opening the bag, but to be able to test the scent as well. Our motto this season is ‘Treat someone to the perfect bath’”, explains Williamson. The designer bags are available for the two pound sizes of all 37 bath and spa salts offered by SFSC. They retail for $14.99 each and are currently 15% off through the holidays with free shipping.
“Whenever you are giving a gift, presentation is important. We are very excited to update these bath salts’ packaging, giving them a high-end look while still offering them at a great value so everyone can afford to give the gift of relaxation,” adds Williamson.

The scent of lavender is everywhere – its wonderful aroma is found in perfumes, scented candles, sachets, eye pillows, massage oil, bath salts, soap, and countless other products. You might think lavender is popular because of its famous scent – and sure, who can resist the light, sweet fragrance of lavender? But lavender isn’t just a pretty scent. It seems to have a wide range of effects on the mind, body, and spirit, and is used in both aromatherapy and alternative medicine.
Ever since the 1920’s, when French chemist Rene Maurice Gattefosse drenched his badly burned arm in a vat of this wonderfully aromatic liquid, lavender oil has gained quite a bit of notoriety in the aromatherapy world. Nobody knew about the healing properties of lavender essential oil until Rene set his arm on fire and, desperate to douse in the flames, dipped his arm in a large tub filled with it. He was awed by how quickly his burn healed, and by the noticeable lack of scarring thereafter. He went on to dedicate his life to studying the benefits of essential oils.
In terms of medicinal uses, lavender essential oil is used as first aid to treat many common ailments. Lavender is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic and is commonly used to soothe painful cuts, burns, bites, and stings. Lavender is also a popular treatment for sunburns and sunstroke, and can be combined with chamomile to treat eczema. It is also used to relieve toothaches and heart palpitations. When used in a foot bath, lavender essential oil curtails fatigue – and makes your feet smell like flowers, which is always a good thing.
Lavender oil is also known to repel insects such as lice, fleas, and mosquitos. If any of these annoying pests are stubborn enough to bite you anyway, you can use lavender oil to treat the bite.
Lavender doesn’t just soothe painful cuts and bruises – it is also known to soothe and calm the mind. Lavender essential oil is often added to candles, pillows, and a variety of bath products. The sweet scent of lavender is incredibly relaxing, and it is said to help people rid themselves of stress and anxiety. Lavender is often present in massage oils and lotions.
With so many lavender products out there, it’s easy to enjoy the benefits of lavender essential oil in your own home. Perhaps one of the nicest ways to take advantage of lavender’s wonderful scent and soothing nature is to take a nice, hot bath with some bath salts infused with lavender essential oil. As you fill the tub with warm water, take a handful of lavender scented bath salts and pour them into the stream of water to agitate the salts and release the aroma. Turn off the lights and light a few candles, and draw the bath curtain closed around the tub to keep the powerful, sweet vapors from escaping. Close your eyes and breathe in the gorgeous scent of fresh lavender, and stay in the tub for a while. After all, what’s the rush?
Looking for the quick low down on the benefits of bath salt for your body and mind? Below is a quick list of just some of the benefits of bathing in a salt bath. Is there any other bath and body product that can do all this for so little investment? We don't think so!!!

Himalayan Salt Blocks make the perfect gift for professional chef's or any culinary enthusiast! This all-natural Himalayan Salt Block, contains a reported 84 trace minerals and will add delectable flavor and essential minerals to a wide range of dishes. Our 8'' x 8'' x 1'' Himalayan Salt Blocks are just $29.95 each with FREE SHIPPING!
There are lots of ways to use a Himalayan Salt Block…
Presentation/Serving Tray for Cold Appetizers & Desserts*:
Place the Himalayan salt slab in the refrigerator overnight and then arrange sushi, cheese or other cold hors d’ oeuvres on the Himalayan Block to beautifully present appetizers to your party guests. You may also place the salt slab in the freezer ahead of time to chill it and then serve cold and frozen desserts on it.
Searing thinly sliced meats, fish, vegetables, seafood and more fast cooking foods*:
Grills & Gas Ranges: Begin heating on low flame, gradually increasing to low/medium (typically about 30-45 minutes) until ideal temperature is reached.
Electric Ranges: Place salt slab on heat-safe metal platform (so the salt slab is at least ½’’ above direct heat). Start on low heat, gradually increasing to low/medium (typically about 40-55 minutes) until ideal temperature is reached.
If using the salt slab to cook food in the oven, it is recommended to first heat the salt block on a grill or range before (carefully) putting the salt block into the oven that’s been preheated to the same temperature as the block (the salt block is commonly heated to temperatures between 300-400 degrees).
*First Things First - A few things to keep in mind before cooking on your salt block:
-Please keep in mind that moist foods will absorb more of the salt and its flavor than drier foods.
- Make sure salt block is completely dry before heating - allow at least 24 hours for salt slab to dry completely before heating on grill, range or in the oven.
- Use with Caution: The Himalayan Salt Block retains heat when used for cooking and will become very hot. Handle with caution.
- Heating the plate may change the physical appearance of the slab by changing its color and bringing out flaws.
- Because Himalayan Salt Blocks are a completely natural product, its appearance as well as the maximum limit for high temperatures may vary.
Cleaning & Caring For Your Salt Block:
If you intend to use the Himalayan Salt Block for both cooking foods on and serving cold foods, we recommend purchasing two blocks so you have a designated block for each type of usage.
It’s quite easy to clean your Himalayan Salt Block. Simply scrub with a soft brush or wipe with a damp cloth, and pat dry. Then place on drying rack for a least 24 hours to allow the block to dry thoroughly. Never run the salt slab under water or submerge. Cleansers or soap are not needed to clean your salt slab as it is naturally antimicrobial.
You can expect to enjoy many uses with your Himalayan Salt Block. However, little by little the salt block will dissolve over time changing it size, shape and its surface. Once your salt becomes too small for cooking on or for presentation, there are still ways to get further use out of your salt slab. You can grate the salt over entrees to add amazing flavor or add it to your bath to re-mineralize your body, soothe muscle aches and pains and soften your skin.
DISCLAIMER: Himalayan Salt Blocks are 100% natural. Because of this, each slab will be unique in its characteristics, including color and composition. Each block may also have a different limitation for temperature and pressure. San Francisco Salt Company is not responsible for damages, injury, or loss due to any use of Himalayan Salt products.
Please check out this short video clip as CNN senior medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, explores the healing benefits of bathing with mineral rich Dead Sea Salts. This segment includes a true testimonial from a psoriasis patient who has been bathing regularly with salts from the Dead Sea to treat his skin condition, with great results. The film includes incredible photos that were taken before and after he began this completely natural bathing routine.
Why choose Dead Sea Bath Salts?
Dead Sea Salts carry many benefits, particularly when used as bath salts. Dead Sea Salts effectively treat many skin conditions, from eczema and psoriasis to everyday conditions such as oily or dry skin. Dead Sea salts are also known to soothe rashes, calm allergic reactions, minimize dandruff and treat acne. Dead Sea salts have been known to improve the appearance of cellulite, manage the appearance of swelling due to water retention, and even treat hair loss. In addition, Dead Sea salts detoxify your skin, drawing out dirt, pollutants and impurities from each pore.
In the chaos of today’s busy lifestyles we often become prone to cold and flu viruses that can leave us fatigued and uncomfortable. With the demands of our careers and families we don’t always have the luxury of taking a sick day to nurture our aching and exhausting symptoms. Often when it comes down to either going to work in a bit of misery or using up one of our treasured vacation days, we usually opt to drag ourselves out of bed and head to work.
A perfect way for those with a demanding schedule to combat the cold or flu virus is to pamper one's tired body with a Cold and Flu Bath Soak at the end of the day.
Draw a bath to a comfortable temperature and add a couple handfuls of our Cold & Flu Bath Salts.Post bath, enjoy a cup of your favorite tea to hydrate yourself and further help to comfort your symptoms.
1.Tired achy sore muscles? Balance your mind and body with a cup or two of our Epsom Salt in a warm tub of water. Soak for at least 20 minutes to relax your body at and put your mind at ease. Spice it up with a few drops or Peppermint, Lavender or Eucalyptus Essential Oils, to make your bath experience a more therapeutic and sensual soak.
2.A simple extra step to cleaning your face: When cleaning your face at night, mix a half-teaspoon of Epsom Salt with your regular cleansing cream. Softly massage the mixture into your skin and rinse with cold water. This will kill germs, and unclog your pores for a more rejuvenated look and feel.
3.Hair treatment: Epsom Salt soaks up excess oil from your hair (oily hair can cause breakouts and acne when hair touches sensitive parts of the skin). Add 9 tablespoons of Epsom Salt to 1/2 cup of any hair shampoo. Apply one tablespoon of the liquid to your hair when it is dry. Rinse with cold water then apply your daily conditioner.
4.Fertilize your garden! Studies show that Epsom Salt can make roses bushier, pepper plants larger and lawns greener. You can either sprinkle 2 Tablespoons at the root or base of a plant/lawn or add 3 Tablespoons to a gallon of water, let it dissolve then saturate the roots of the plants/ lawn. This is a simple easy way to beautify your garden, why not try??

With the variety of salts that make up this special blend as well as the quality-to-value ratio, this combination of salts has been very popular among our customers for re-packaging into smaller jars and bags for resale. This blend is also ideal for salons and spas to incorporate into their pedicure and manicure service to soften skin and nails.
Traditional Alaea Hawaiian Red Sea Salt’s unique flavor is ideal for seasoning a variety of foods, especially when it comes to meat. It is widely used in Hawaii as a key seasoning for many of their native dishes including the kalua pig, poke, and Hawaiian jerky. It’s also used commonly for preserving.
Hawaiian volcanic clay called “alae” is added to this salt to enhance the salt with iron-oxide which gives the salt its extraordinary red color. Though adding the alae clay does not affect the taste of the salt, it does increase the health benefits of the salt by providing a source of digestible dietary iron.
The smokey flavor of our Black Hawaiian Lava Salt is great for seasoning salads and vegetables, sushi, seafood, meats and more! It also makes a beautiful presentation for entrees when used as a garnish.
This salt obtains its natural and dramatic coloring from the activated charcoal added to the salt which is a known antitoxin and digestive aid.
Both of these salts are currently on FREE SHIPPING for the 10lb or 25lb bag sizes.

Answers to your most frequently asked questions when comparing these two great salts.
What is the difference between these two salts?
Both the Light Pink Himalayan Salt and the Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt are 100% natural salts from the Himalayas.The Light Pink Himalayan Salt still has the 84 trace minerals that the Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is reported to have, the difference between these two salts is the amount (or concentration) of the minerals which give the salt its unique, dark pink coloring. Since the Light Pink has lessof certain minerals (such as iron) it is able dissolve better, leaving less particles behind in your tub.
Which is better for bathing?
This depends on what you are looking for in a bath salt. They are both suitable for bathing but some prefer the Light Pink since it is able dissolve better (because of the difference is mineral concentration) leaving fewer particles behind in your tub. However, if you are looking to re-mineralize the body you may want to consider the Sherpa Pink as it will be more mineral rich.
Which is better for cooking?
The Light Pink Himalayan Salt and Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt are both food grade.You can decide for yourself which you think tastes best by trying samples of these salts first.

Another gourmet food salt is now available from SFBSC. We are very excited to be bringing you a new great salt that is favored by top chefs in France and all around the world!
Grey Sea Salt is formed as the sea water flows into the Guerande marshes during high tides.The water is then directed to a vasiere, or a settling pond, where the water is evaporated leaving behind a naturally organic, crystallized salt.
The Grey Sea Salt gets it name from its natural coloring that occurs from the salt crystallizing on clay.This contact with the clay provides the salt with its high mineral content that includes magnesium and many other trace minerals.
Grey Sea Salt has a much more delicate and richer taste than Mediterranean Sea Salt. It is 100% natural and unrefined and is certified organic.We will be offering this salt in both fine and coarse grains in order to suite your gourmet salt needs.

I was really starting to feel the change of season… with the weather finally cooling off and with constant gusts of wind and leaves delicately falling all around me I felt the need to embrace the Autumn traditions.So, as soon as my work day was over I decided to visit my local pumpkin patch and selected two pumpkins that seemed to call out to me. After setting them upon my front steps when I got home I was eager to draw a nice bath and try out my butterscotch pumpkin bath salts.
I ran the water and used a good two cups of salt so that I could not only enjoy the wonderful aroma of this great scent but also so that I could gain all the benefits from the minerals in the salt. I knew I was going to really enjoy this soak in the tub because it has Dead Sea Salt in addition to Pacific Sea Salt.This blend of salts makes a great combination for soothing muscle aches and pains, ridding the body of toxins and softening the skin.
I stayed in the tub last night for a good forty-five minutes and I enjoyed every minute of it.I had kept my bathroom door closed so the scent of sweet butterscotch and pumpkin spice never dissipated. When I got out I felt great!The bath had truly warmed and relaxed me and I slept well all through the night- this was my start to a new Autumn tradition.
Fall has arrived!To get you in the mood for the change of season we are re-introducing our Pumpkin Bath Salts.This is our signature Autumn blend of Dead Sea and Pacific Sea Salts, smelling of fresh pumpkin with jasmine, butter scotch and hints of brown sugar and vanilla bean.And as always, our salts will be made to order to ensure you receive the freshest salts possible.

Floatation Tanks, also known as Isolation Tanks were created by John C. Lilly in the 1950s. These tanks are used for a variety of reasons including meditation, relaxation and natural healing.How it works- A person will lie inside the tank while floating in salt water.Subjects are completely isolated and undistracted from the rest of the world as the tanks are soundproof and completely dark.
Most tanks require about 800 lbs of Epsom Salt to allow subjects to be buoyant.The Epsom salt also benefits those floating in the tank by detoxing the body and relieving muscle aches and pains.
San Francisco Bath Salt Company has large quantities of Epsom Salt for floatation tanks readily available, so whether you’re an individual with a floatation tank at home or have your own floatation tank business, we can help.

Our Ibiza Natural Sea Salt comes from the pristine waters of the Mediterranean Sea in Europe. We have selected this salt for its purity and crystal white, beautiful appearance and are proud to offer this salt to enhance your bathing experience!
The Ibiza European Salt is produced using ancient methods of solar evaporation. The Mediterranean region that these salts are produced from is free of pollution and has high evaporation rates, making it one of the purest salts in the world! It contains trace elements such as Iodine, Fluorine, Magnesium and Potassium.
Europeans were among the first to produce this salt commercially and recognize its health benefits. One of the many benefits of bathing with the Ibiza is its ability to soothe muscle aches and pains.
These raw salts are available in fine, medium and coarse and are ideal for creating your own bath salts, salt scrubs, and a variety of other bath and body products.
In addition to the many uses of the Ibiza European Sea Salt, it is also food grade which means that it can be used as an alternative to the ordinary table salt!
Bath Quote of the Week:
“There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.”
Though our company’s namesake is in bath salts, we also have a selection of gourmet food grade salts from around the world! These raw, 100% natural salts are a tasty substitute for the ordinary table salt.
The typical table salt goes through a chemical process which “cleans” the salt. This treatment often strips the salt of its minerals and nutrients leaving sodium chloride behind. This somewhat unnatural form of salt is difficult for our bodies to utilize and digest. The following food grade, gourmet salts are in their natural, pure form and contain many minerals and nutrients which are essential to the overall health and well being of our bodies. To find out more information about our gourmet food salts please click on the links below. More information on these salts to follow soon on our website!
Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt - From the heart of the Himalayas this salt contains 84 trace elements that provides us with the minerals our body needs to be replenished of including Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Iron. These salts have a beautiful pink coloring to them which occurs naturally because of its high mineral content.
Utah Red Kosher Sea Salt - Derived from a prehistoric salt deposit in Redmond, Utah this salt contains over 50 trace minerals including Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium. Color is a reddish-pink, naturally occurring from the minerals.
Ibiza European Sea Salt - From the Mediterranean Sea. This salt contains Calcium, Magnesium and other trace minerals. Ibiza’s crystals are pure white in color.
Choosing your grain size - The Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salts is available in extra-fine which can go right in your regular salt shaker. The other grain sizes of these salts: fine, medium and coarse will require a salt grinder or salt mill, which you can find at gourmet food markets and kitchen supply stores.
Please do not confuse these salts with our other natural salts, as not all of our salts are for consumption.
Obtain the powers of dried herbs by bathing with our Calspa Herbal & Minera Herbal. These blends are made of all natural ingredients- 100% Natural Salt, Essential Oils, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and your choice of up to three herbs- chamomile, lavender, and rose buds. This is the perfect custom salt blend for those of you who are looking for a truly natural and therapeutic bathing experience. Great for muscle aches and pains and skincare.
If you are thinking that these herbs would be nice to use but worry about clogging your drain or just aren’t excited about having the herbs floating about you while you soak, there is a solution! You can achieve the same experience by simply making a tea bag with your salts which you can steep- the salt will still dissolve and you won’t have the clean up afterwards. Simply place a handful of the Calspa Herbal or Minera Herbal onto a square piece of muslin and tie with a sting (you can also purchase muslin bag with drawstrings). You can either tie the tea bag onto the faucet and allow the hot water to run or simply drop it in the tub.

It makes sense that we are drawn to water when experiencing stress of anxiety. We know that nothing feels better than soaking in a tub full of warm waterat the end of a long workday. What many people don’t know, however, is there are scientific reasons behind our natural inclination towards water as a healing agent.
Watermakes up 70% of the human body and performs valuable functions, including flushing toxins from our cells, softening our skin, hydrating and lubricating our organs and systems so they function smoothly. Humans have been enjoying the benefits of bathing since the Middle Ages, when bathing was not only recognized as a social and stress-relieving past-time, but as a powerful therapy for a full range of illnesses and conditions.
Freshwater, also known as tap water, carries many benefits when we soak in its luxurious waves – but seawater is turning the heads of many scientists and medical specialists, for its vast health benefits and therapeutic properties. Seawater so closely approximates the water naturally residing in our bodies that our own white blood cells have been proven to survive in it!
Seawater is rich in trace minerals that aren’t found in our water at home, including iodine, magnesium, sodium, potassium, fluoride, sulfur and carbonates. These minerals are essential to our bodies’ functions and readily absorbed through the skin, which makes a seawater bath an important tool for our overall health.
All you have to do is add some of our sea salts to your bath. Hot water opens up our pores and creates “room” for the minerals to enter through our skin, thereby delivering powerful benefits to every part of us. These minerals are known to strengthen our immune system, eliminate harmful toxins, promote gland health and function, heal wounds and skin injuries, and reduce stress.
There are many creative ways to get the most out of your bath. Aromatherapy, for instance, does a lot more than make you and your bathroom smell good – combining different essential oils and scents to your bath can do wonders for a variety of issues, including stress, aches and pains, mood, and much more.
Browse our website to learn more and purchase what you need for your perfect, custom-made bath. And most importantly, have fun!
What if someone told you that a simple bath could relieve common skin disorders, alleviate painful aches and swelling, reduce stress, cure insomnia, and make you look and feel younger?
You’d probably take baths more often, right?
A plain bath is sure to feel good no matter what, but the magic ingredient that delivers all of these benefits is dead sea salts. Harvested from the mineral-rich southern end of the Dead Sea, dead sea salts provide proven theraputic effects and benefits.
The most obvious benefit to taking a long, luxurious bath is stress reduction. We all know how good it feels to emerge from a steaming, warm bath at the end of a hard day – you feel flushed, rested, and clean. Our sea salts – either added to your bath or applied with a mud pack – increase your circulation and reduce the level of toxins in your body, freeing your cells from the by-products often caused by stress. So a bath with dead sea salts is a bit of a double whammy – relaxing you from the inside out!
Many of us suffer from insomnia – a whopping 25% of Americans can’t seem to fall asleep! Insomnia is more than an annoyance, it makes us more susceptible to colds, flus, and more serious conditions – not to mention irritability. The stress-relieving properties of dead sea salts mentioned above also apply to insomnia, relaxing you and making it easy to enjoy good quality sleep.
As if all these benefits weren’t enough, dead sea salts do wonders for your skin. Adding dead sea salts to your daily bath has been proven to diminish the effects of aging by softening the skin and increasing your skin’s defense against environmental elements and chemicals. Wrinkles will be less noticeable, your skin will be soft and supple, and a natural glow will be restored. All of these benefits, combined with a lower stress level, lead to a more youthful appearance.
All of us have had to contend with rashes, sores, hives, itching, and other skin problems. Dead sea salts contain large amounts of magnesium and bromide, which cleanse and disinfect your skin, making you less susceptible to skin-related allergies.
Even arthritis and back pain can be relieved with the help of this amazing addition to your bath – the minerals in dead sea salts help your body defend against swelling and join pain by acting as a muscle relaxant and detoxifying agent.
When you purchase dead sea salts from The San Francisco Bath Company, you are buying salts of the highest quality. Unlike salts sold elsewhere, ours are unprocessed and raw. If you purchase salts that have been washed or processed, many of the key minerals have been removed – and so have the benefits mentioned above!
So skip the shower for a week and take a bath with our dead sea salts. See how you feel! You’ll be surprised.
Well, here we are - smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season. The year has flown by, and now you have to scramble to find the perfect gifts for your family and friends. You may be feeling the economic crunch and aren’t sure what you can buy that is meaningful and useful, and won’t make you broke come January. You could find yourself shopping at the last minute, buying gifts that don’t really suit your loved ones... or you can give the gift of relaxation, beauty, and health.
Bath salts and other bath products are a wonderful gift for anyone in your family. Many of us forget to pamper ourselves and don’t buy this kind of thing for ourselves (but we should, but that’s a whole other article!). Bath salts are a great gift idea for a variety of reasons:
Give the Gift of Healthy Skin Bathing in high quality bath salts has been shown to improve skin tone, clear your complexion, soften and soothe all skin types, and even protect against environmental elements and pollution. Bath salts work to deeply cleanse the skin while working to detoxify and refresh pores.
Rest and Relaxation Taking regular baths can lower blood pressure and is one of the most relaxing thing we can do. It also gives us time away from other demands such as work and social obligations - and taking time alone is crucial if you want to maintain your sanity in this busy world.
Extraordinary Value These days, many of us are looking for ways to save money, and the holidays make it difficult to do so. While bath salts are a practical, enjoyable, and thoughtful gift, they won’t break the bank. And if you buy a good amount, they will last for a long time.
They are Beautiful! Put simply, bath salts are really very pretty. These beautiful crystals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they are available in a rainbow of vibrant colors. When displayed by the side of your tub, they add beauty to the whole room!
A Personal Touch Bath salts come in a vast array of colors, scents, and can be infused with herbs and essential oils, making each salt as unique as your family member or friend. You can tailor your bath salt to fit the personality and needs of the recipient, so they will have their own, tailor-made, perfect bath salt.
The holidays are a time of excess - lots of parties, time spent with friends and family, and tons of good food. To combat any unwanted weight gain during the season, it’s a good idea to squeeze some exercise into your busy schedule. You’ll not only stay healthy and trim, you’ll be less likely to overindulge at parties when you see the rewards of all your hard work.
But while you’ll feel and look better, you will have to contend with one side-effect: muscle soreness. After rigorous activity (or any movement your body isn’t used to), you might find yourself feeling tight and sore for a day or two afterwards. This is mostly due to a buildup of lactic acid in your muscles during the cool-down phase of your workout, and tiny tears in the muscle fibers. These tears actually help you get stronger - as tissue builds up around them, your muscles get larger and stronger. Even though some moderate soreness can mean you had a great workout, it is still uncomfortable and makes it difficult to go about your daily activities.
One of the best ways to treat tired, sore muscles is to take a warm bath using high-quality bath salts and soaks. You don’t want to soak in the tub immediately after your workout - you should wait about 1-2 hours. Why? Warm water increases circulation and promotes inflammation; it’s best to gradually cool down your muscles and let them recover a bit before you head to the bath. Take a short walk, do some stretches and refuel with a healthy meal.
Then, take a bath! The warm water massages your muscles and makes them more pliable and less prone to cramping and tightness. The warmth increases your circulation and helps speed muscle recovery.
Bath salts are an essential ingredient in a post-workout bath. Bath salts are usually made from real sea salts, and high-quality salts contain minerals and nutrients that are essential for overall health and also happen to do wonders for sore muscles. Sea salts contain magnesium, a mineral known as a muscle relaxer, as well as other vital nutrients such as potassium.The bath salts also aid in the release of toxins that build up during exercise.
Dead Sea salts are an excellent choice for soothing tired muscles, since they are exceptionally high in mineral content. Essential oils of menthol and eucalyptus work to increase blood flow and cool the skin, resulting in great overall relief. You can create your own bath salts by mixing in your own essential oils and fragrances, or you can buy a soak designed to soothe sore muscles, such as our Muscle Soak bath salt formula.
So a few hours after your next workout, draw a nice, warm bath. Dim the lights and sprinkle in two heaping handfuls of bath salts - the more the better! Sit back, relax, and allow your body to unwind after all its hard work. You deserve it!

Thanksgiving can be cozy, fun, stressful, or all of the above. If you’re spending the evening with family or friends, it’s a great time to reconnect after the busy year. If you’re hosting, it can feel festive and exciting, but you may find yourself riddled with anxiety the night before. Between preparing your meal, planning activities, and seeing your meddlesome in-laws or that crazy uncle you’ve never really cared for, you feel pressure to make the day as enjoyable as possible.
Why not take this opportunity to treat yourself to a “time out”, to truly pamper yourself? By taking a bath, you’ll lower your stress level while getting some much-needed time to yourself. Since this week is probably filled with preparations, traveling, or back-to-back plans, you’ll need to rest and rejuvenate.
Here’s an idea: take a bath the night before the big day, with a focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. Then, take a bath after everyone leaves, to center and re-balance yourself after all that activity. Through the use of the right bath salts, you’ll achieve the desired results.
Here’s the perfect recipe for each!
Pre-Thanksgiving Bath: For this bath, you’ll want to use a combination of relaxing and rejuvenating elements in your bath. Try mixing in some bath salts infused with mint or citrus scents to give you an energy boost, and add a soothing bath salt such as our “Tranquility” blend. Color is important as well - bright, lighter colors will refresh you, and “cooler” colors will calm you. Mix and match to perfection!
Post-Thanksgiving Bath: Now that everyone is gone, you can treat yourself to the perfect, calming bath and follow up with a good night’s sleep. Scents like lavender and vanilla are good choices for a bath before bedtime, as they lower blood pressure and relax you from the inside out. Choose bath salts in blues, purples, or soft greens to calm you even more.
For each bath, dim the lights - or turn them off altogether and light some candles. Play your favorite music softly in the background. Close your eyes, take deep breaths, and think of nothing but how the your body feels in the water. Be sure your friends and family know that this is your time to be alone; no interruptions.

There are many exotic and wonderful salts out there that have been getting a lot of attention and rightly so. However, on the flip side, one of the most popular salts on the market seems to be getting less and less attention - Pacific Sea Salts. This should not be so as pacific sea salts still are an amazingly wonderful salt that have many benefits, contain minerals, and are an exceptional value for money.
Read our full report and learn more about one of the best sea salts on the market that is by far the best value for money and most widely used in the cosmetic industry today.
Generally, Himalayan salt are used in the same way as ordinary table salt. They are used in bathing purposes, as well as culinary purposes. More recently, large crystal rocks dug out from the Himalayan region are also used as lamps.
One of the more common use of drinking salt brine is to cleanse the body, normalize alkaline/acidity levels in the body, and a source of natural energy for the body. Salt brine are also used in tooth brushing for soothing gum bleeding and reduces periodontal disease and other mount problems. Brine baths are also made using Himalayan salts using the concept of osmosis. Aside from above-mentioned uses , the salty solution can also be used to remedy certain skin conditions like acne, foot fungus and psoriasis.
Himalayan salt are also used the same way as regular salt, food seasoning and some drinks. Himalayan salts are also used as Kosher salt due to having a much larger grain size. It has a subtle difference in taste than regular table salt that some say makes it taste better.
Salt lamps/Tea lights
Himalayan salt crystal rocks are used in making lamps. These large crystal rocks are carved into their desired shape and size. The final shape of the crystal rock are then mounted on a wooden base for stability and an electrical bulb is fixed within the crystals hollow area illuminating the whole rock when it is lit. Health practitioners believe that these lamps are beneficial saying that the gentle heat from the bulb allows the crystal salt to emit negative electrical charges which removes positive ions.
Its high mineral content makes Himalayan salts ideal to be used as an ingredient in making bath additives such as bath salts, bath bombs, and other related products like scrubs. Results in bathing water with Himalayan salts are believed to be beneficial to dry, oily, or combination skin and other skin related problems. Himalayan bath salts have also believed to treat PMS symptoms and can help people with sleeping problems.
We have been noticing more and more listings on E-BAY recently for companies or people (it's hard to tell these days) selling Dead Sea Salt for unusually low prices. There can really only be one reason for this, and that is - Fraud.
Buyers selling for unusually low prices
Wholesale Pricing, out of Israel, when purchasing by the container load is a relatively set price so when buyers on E-Bay and on the Web post their prices for less than or close to the container price it obviously raises our suspicions. Over the period of one year, we purchase many many containers of Dead Sea Salt (43,890 lbs per each container), have special contract pricing out of Israel and know the Dead Sea Salt industry inside and out. It is very easy for us to spot a fake, even just based on pricing and data from the company that is selling the supposedly "Dead Sea Salt".
We have tested many salts and verified them to be FAKE
To validate our suspicions, over the last few months we have actually purchased from Various buyers mostly on e-bay, that were selling salts at what we know to be cost or less than costs from Israel. We have tested these salts in our lab and ALL the salts tested have been verified to be Sea Salt, but not DEAD SEA SALT. They do not have the appearance of Dead Sea Salt or the chemical structure that Dead Sea Salts are famous for. The Salts we tested were ALL atlantic or pacific salts, with one exception that was sea salt with a 5% Dead Sea Salt mix in there. None of these salts contained the high mineral content that quality dead Sea Salt has - not even close to it. Not to say that these salts are bad, just that they are not Dead Sea Salt from Israel as advertised.
We are taking action With our data now in hand, we have started to take action against some of these companies. We feel that it is morally wrong, very deceitful, and especially unfair to the buyer to be selling fake Dead Sea Salt. It also impacts the Dead Sea Salt industry by artificially devaluing what is a premium quality product.
Help us to identify the Impostors If you feel you have purchased imitation Dead Sea Salt, please fell free to contact us and let us know who and where you purchased from. We will add it to our list of suspicious accounts and follow up if we fell it is necessary. In the meantime, if you need pure raw premium quality Dead Sea Salt, please feel free to visit our Minera Dead Sea Salt page.
There are many ways to take a bath, and many recipes for the perfect bathing experience. You can use essential oils, scented bath salts, creamy soaps and soaks. So why use herbs?
We use herbs to add zest and flavor to a variety of foods; herbal teas have become increasingly popular and are often added to a healthy diet. Herbal baths have always been known for their healing properties, soothing skin, relaxing tired muscles and aching joints, and stimulating circulation. Herbal baths also deliver the powerful benefits of aromatherapy, filling your space with wonderful, lingering scents.
You can use different herbs, mixing and matching to create the perfect bath. For instance, Bergamot is a versatile herb that can be used to relieve cold symptoms, and to both relax and invigorate. Grapefruit and Juniperberry detoxify your skin. Lavender and Chamomile are extremely relaxing, promoting a good night's sleep and protection from stress and anxiety. Ylang-ylang has a similar soothing effect.
The cons? There is only one downside to using herbs in your bath: it can get a bit messy. When you're done taking your bath, be sure to wipe the herbs away from the tub using a cloth or paper towels- don't rinse the herbs down the drain, as this will clog the pipes. Or, avoid this problem all together and make your very own herb tea bags! It'll be like soaking in a giant cup of tea.
Also, don't forget about your atmosphere – dim the lights, arrange some candles around the tub, and play your favorite soft music in the background. Have fun!

You could buy that china elephant collection for your grandma, or that silver letter opener for your dad. Or, you can give them something they’ll actually use.

Bath salts make a wonderful gift for many reasons. You can customize your bath salt gift by mixing and matching different scents and colors to create a gift as unique as each person you love.

Give your dad a blend of Eucalyptus and Peppermint, your sister a Citrus blend because she loves fruit. The possibilities are endless.

Many natural and herbal medicines are shunned by the public, and virtually gather no interest and whatsoever from the modern people of today due to the fact that their life is extremely fast, and no one has the time to make anything homemade anymore. Before this happened, most people made remedies in their home, to give to those who needed it, with the use of their own ingredients right in the kitchen. But this is no more, as the general public has turned their focus to faster ways of curing themselves. But the notion that mass produced cures are more effective is a myth, a big one at that. The generation of today should understand that as time passes, the chemicals put in medicines are more complicated, and have more side effects, as compared to the good old natural remedies done at home.
Epsom salt is one of the more effective home natural remedies that people seemed to have forgotten about. The scientific name of Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate, and it has a lot of medicinal uses. In the early days when people did not turn to instant gratification, Epsom salt was used as stomach pain medications and ache solutions. Toxins inside the body are also flushed out through the use of Epsom salt, through soaking in a warm bath full of this miracle salt.
Muscle pains are easily soothed by foot soak solutions that are more inclined to Epsom salt, and it also acts as an absorbent to the bad odors and rough skin patches which are not only unappealing but also painful for one to endure. Epsom saltis a good remedy for the aforementioned small problems, and it is also very easy to use. One may reap the benefits of Epsom Salt through adding about half a cup of pure Epsom salt to a medium to large sized pan half filled by lukewarm water. Once this is done, put the aching foot or feet onto the pan filled with Epsom salt, and wait till the ache subsides. The results are instant, and quite cheap.
But of course people do not pay attention anymore to the simple and humble Epsom salt, as new medicines have emerged and treatment from the small body aches are easily available through pills and other kinds of topical creams. Though most of the new medicines that are being pedaled into the market are normally harmless, many people still get allergies from specific brands of pills and the like, because they are allergic to one or two of the main ingredients (or active ingredients) of the medicine they have ingested or rubbed onto their skin. The fact is, there are less people who are allergic to natural remedies, and in this case, Epsom salt than the ultra fancy marketing strategies that big companies have developed.
For an even better Epsom salt therapy treatment try our Muscle Soak Spa Therapy Salts - USP premium grade Epsom salt with Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential oils.
Sodium chloride (salt) is the chemical compound NaCl. Composed of the elements sodium and chloride it is one of the most basic molecules on earth. Salt is so simple and plentiful that we almost take it for granted. Approx. 68% of the world's surface is covered by the world's oceans and seas. Ocean water is approx. 3.5% salt concentration. That means that if the oceans dried up completely, enough salt would be left behind to build a 180-mile-tall, one-mile-thick wall around the equator!
Salt also occurs naturally in many parts of the world as the mineral halite (rock salt).
There are three basic types of salt: rock salt, evaporated salt and solar salt
Deep underground deposits are conventionally mined by drilling and blasting to produce rock salt.
Salt water, or brine, is boiled under a partial vacuum with steam heat, in enclosed vessels called vacuum pans. The brine is purified and fed to large evaporators where salt crystallizes in to granulated salt.
Solar salt is produced through the natural evaporation of sea water. Salt water is captured in shallow ponds and allowed to evaporate by means of the sun and wind. The typical solar crop takes from one to five years to produce.
Virtually all food grade salt sold or used in the United States is produced by vacuum evaporation of brine. However, prior to mechanical evaporation, the brine may be treated to remove minerals that can cause scaling in the evaporators. Chemical treatment of the brine, followed by settling, reduces levels of dissolved calcium, magnesium and sulfate.
In addition, these are the very minerals we want our body to absorb when we bath in bath salts. That's why here at the San Francisco Bath Salt Company we only use pure, unadulterated solar salt.
Purity of salt produced in North America varies depending on the type of salt the source. Rock salt typically ranges between 95% and 99% NaCl, and mechanically evaporated salt and solar salt normally exceed 99% NaCl. The principal other ingredients in solar salt are calcium and magnesium sulfate, and magnesium chloride.
Here at the San Francisco Bath Salt Company we only use natural solar salts that retain as much of the natural minerals as possible.
Our salt comes from a long tradition of salt making along the shores of the San FranciscoBay, using sunlight and wind to slowly concentrate and crystallize the natural salt carried by the Bay's waters.
We are the salt of the Earth. From our luxurious bath salts to our worldly gourmet salts, we strive to keep you impressed. Our philosophy takes root in harnessing natural mineral sea salts to increase your well-being from the inside out. Our core mission is to increase our customers understanding of the wondrous benefits of sea salt.
