Ordinary table salt predominantly consists of sodium chloride. When salt is dried, most of the trace elements that the body needs is eliminated, leaving a mineral that isn't particularly beneficial. However, Himalayan salt is a pure and totally natural mineral salt containing up to 84 minerals and trace elements, high in negative ions. It is mined by hand and stone ground, eliminating impurities.
Millions of years ago, the sun dried up the primal sea and left the mineral-rich crystals we know today as Himalayan salt. Located deep within the Himalayan Mountains, this crystal salt is the purest salt on the planet. Covered in snow year round, the pristine environment of the Himalayas protects the salt from the pollutants that often permeate salt from the sea.
Himalayan salt is the purest, all-natural, unrefined, cleanest and most complete salt available. Using Himalayan bath salt offers many positive benefits. The trace elements that are present exist in a form that is easily absorbed by the skin. Himalayan salt does not contain any type of environmental toxins or harmful chemicals.
In addition to its purity, Himalayan Bath salt contains all-natural replenishing power stored within its crystals. Its bio-photon content is stored energy that releases when mixed with water, rejuvenating both mind and body. Soaking in the bath salt draws out toxins, soothes muscles and eases tension. Taking a salt bath will also make your skin clean and smooth.
Most of us are conscious about our physical appearance, especially our skin. Unlike taking an ordinary bath which can actually remove moisture from our skin, a Himalayan salt bath moisturizes by allowing water to be absorbed into the outer layer of the skin.
Himalayan bath salt, contains 84 essential minerals, more than any other bath salt, including magnesium, potassium, bromide and calcium which are readily absorbed into the skin during a 15-30 minute bath.
Directions: Pour 4 ounces of Bath Salt into running lukewarm bath water to help soothe muscles and soften skin.

It is easy to wonder if Dead Sea mud is nothing more than an expensive type of regular, ordinary mud. However, it's important to know that it is most definitely not the same. In fact, regular mud is dirty, unsanitary and contains high levels of toxins, such as lead and bacteria, which can have a damaging effect on the skin. On the other hand, Dead Sea mud is very useful for rejuvenating and purifying the skin.
Dead Sea mud is actually one of the most beneficial types of mud in the world. It has a high density of both salts and minerals, which are ideal for keeping skin feeling healthy and youthful.
The Dead Sea is a very salty body of water, with a saline level between 28% and 35%. Even the world's saltiest oceans are only 3% to 6%. The Dead Sea's high mineral salt content is partly due to the fact that it is completely landlocked, so any water that flows into it from the Jordan River is trapped until it evaporates. Evaporation happens quickly because that particular region is extremely hot. When the water evaporates, the salty minerals are left behind, causing the remaining water to become concentrated with salt.
As the Dead Sea water evaporates, the salt and minerals get absorbed into the mud at the bottom of the sea. This mud is then extracted and packaged, with all the impurities removed. The minerals which are present in the mud are all natural minerals which your skin needs. By using Dead Sea mud as a facial mask, you are basically feeding your skin the essential minerals that it needs to maintain proper moisture levels.
When Dead Sea mud dries on the surface of the skin, it pulls out any toxins that may be present in your skin cells. This leaves the skin completely clean, refreshed and pure. It also firms and tightens the skin, providing an exceptional anti-aging benefit, leaving the skin looking younger.
Comprised of many layers of sedimentary clay formed over thousands of years, rich black mineral mud from the Dead Sea contains an extremely high concentration of minerals, scientifically proven to be essential in the maintenance of healthy skin. Honeymark's Mud Mask replenishes and revitalizes the skin, restoring its natural suppleness and moisture levels while alleviating and soothing soreness, redness and cracking.
Directions: Thoroughly cleanse skin. Apply a layer of mud mask to the face or other parts of the skin, avoiding sensitive areas. Leave mask 15-20 minutes, then rinse.
