Benefits of Dead Sea Salt
The Dead Sea is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel to the west. The sea has a salinity of 33.7% and is almost 10 times saltier than the ocean. The sea gets its name from the fact that the salty environment is so harsh that it can not sustain marine life except for some microscopic organisms and microbial fungi.
The benefits of Dead Sea salt come from its 21 unique mineral composition including magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride, and high concentrations of bromide. These minerals make for an extremely therapeutic salt bath which has been used to treat anything from body aches, arthritis, rheumatic disorders and various skin disorders.
