Fit For Fall: Dead Sea Bath Salt Review

Dead Sea Salts are very popular and well known for its reputed therapeutic effects. Used  on a regular basis, Dead Sea salts can be effective in Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis. They can also help with skin conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema as well as Muscle Aches.

Mainely Naturals’ bath salts are made from salts derived from the Dead Sea. Their Dead Sea Salts also include natural ingredients such as sea salts, dendritic salt, jojoba oil and all natural fragrance derived from essential oils and natural extracts. Mainely Naturals uses only phthalate free fragrances, essential oils and all of their products are paraben free, natural and organic, and phthalate free.


Mainely Naturals sent me a 4.oz jar of their Artisan made Dead Sea bath salts in the Balance blend. It’s scented with a unique essential blend including grapefruit, cedarwood,geranium and oakmoss. This smells absolutely heavenly! It is difficult to explain the aroma because there are so many layers to the fragrance. It’s almost a floral-like fragrance, yet I can hint a “clean” fragrance along with woodsy undertones.

Straight from the bottle, the fragrance smells a bit strong. However, once added to running bath water or a foot soak, the scent is very mild and calming. I love adding this to my hot baths! The fragrance reminds me of the ocean and when using my Balance bath salts, I quickly forget my worries and remember my favorite vacation on the beaches in North Carolina.

bath_salts The directions suggest adding 2-3 tbsp to bath water. I found that 2tbsp was the perfect amount and really made for a completely relaxing experience. These Dead Sea bath salts can be used alone, or use candles to add to your relaxation. Aside from the therapeutic qualities, I have also recognized an improvement in my Keratosis Pilaris. For those of you who are unfamiliar with KP, it’s basically extremely dry skin that causes the skin to look like you have goosebumps all of the time. My skin is much more hydrated and smooth and the “goose bumps” have visibly faded. Prescription creams for this condition can cost hundreds, so I am ecstatic to have discovered a much more affordable cure in Mainely Naturals!

  1. You can experience the therapeutic benefits of Dead Sea salts in the form of bath salts – but be careful when you choose your salts. :)

  2. Yes, I agree with the above comment. At Mainely Naturals I use only 100% pure unprocessed coarse Dead Sea Salt in my bath salts. I then add a small amount of finer sea salt to be visually pleasing and keep costs affordable. Dendritic salt holds the scent of the essential oils and jojoba oil for moisturization.

    I have had trouble with very dry skin caused by allergies. Sea salts help my skin feel and look much better
