Unlike a normal bath, in which water is extracted from the skin, the Sole Bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural protective film of the skin while, balancing the pH factor. The cleansing effect of a 30 minute detox bath is equivalent to a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bath water, while the minerals from the dissolved salts are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and eliminates skin-irritations.
The Detox Bath holds the potential energy of the ocean, as if bathing in the primal sea. As your body’s organs begin to resonate with the natural energetic frequency patterns of the Sole Bath, bioenergetics deficits are rebalanced and weak links are strengthened. The natural regulatory mechanism of the body and its self-healing powers are reactivated.
The 84 trace minerals present in the original Himalayan Crystal Salt have properties that include creating and promoting healthy cell regeneration, pH balancing, skin permeability and elasticity, moisture-retention and protection from allergies and infections.
How to Prepare a Sole Bath
Pour the entire bag of Himalayan salt (just over 2lbs) into a bath tub and add just enough water to cover it until it is fully dissolved. This should take about 10 minutes.
Fill the tub with water (98.8F).The temperature is important because the body needs to be in a state where it will absorb the minerals, any warmer and the body will sacrifice its own energy to balance out the surrounding temperature.
To create a Sole Bath a concentration of 1% Salt is needed. The formula for a 1% solution is 1.28 ounces of salt per gallon of water. (Most tubs have a 28-32 gallon capacity).
Soak for 20-40 minutes.
When finished, pat dry with a towel and rest for at least 30 minutes.
