The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with far greater concentrations of minerals than any ocean (a concentration of 32% minerals compared to other seas, holding approximately 3%). Bromides and Iodine are known to be present in Dead Sea Salt, along with other minerals in a dried form, such as Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium and Potassium. All these minerals are believed to work together to assist in relaxing the body and soothes to provide a sense of well being .
The rough nature of the salt lends itself to skin scrubs (exfoliation) and can also be used with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). We recommend you try Dead Sea Salt as a body scrub, or just as a relaxing additive to your baths.
Please note: The large flat crystals in the salts are magnesium crystals.
Caution: Heart patients must follow the advice of their physician before taking baths in which magnesium is used.
Bath with Dead Sea Salt:
In a bowl, mix 4 drops Cedarwood, 6 drops Lavender, 6 drops Lemongrass Essential Oils and 1 Tablespoon of honey into 2 cups of Dead Sea Salts. Mix well, and pour into tub, then run water that is comfortably hot. Soak for at least 20 minutes to get the feeling of relaxation before bedtime. Apply a moisturizer to your skin, into which you have put 3 drops of Chamomile Essential Oil.

Rating: Just began to work with salts, wished I had sooner. I've tried many other salts this is my favorite experience yet. Love the large size. Absorbs EO nicely, does not clump like some other salts I've tried. Great price. Great quality. Great company. Like all their products ND is hands down the best site for all your cosmetic needs.

Rating: I bought 25kgs of this a year ago and I am nearly tapped out! Time to order more soon and I definitely don't mind. No beating the price, either.
I am a massage therapist and constantly recommend this to clients with muscle soreness and/or fatigue.

Rating: I won't tell you how much research I did to find the best price. NDA won, hands down. I picked this up and since the move, they're closer to me! YEAH!! Definitely worth it. A great product. The 25kg size is awesome! ...and you get brownie points with your supplier. Seriously, thank you.

Rating: Pretty crystals that absorb essential oils beautifully. They dissolve quickly and turn my skin so soft and smooth!
Rating: I was super pleased with this salt when I opened it up for the first time! The large crystals are so pretty and not only do they take essential oils well, but they look excellent with the himilayan pink salt. Makes for very pretty bath salts

Rating: I'm really pleased with this salt, it looks very natural since the crystals are all different sizes and occasionally a few are a different color. It seems to mix well with EO's, and doesn't get clumped after time like some other salts I've used.

Rating: I love the course dead sea salt. It really holds up to essential oils and looks great in a glass jar when laced with botanical herbs!
By:Crystal, Blackie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: These salts are incredible! After I add my herbs, flowers, spices and oils the salts look like crystals coloured by the herbs they are mixed with. My customers are immediately drawn to them and once they hold them in their hands they can't put them down. So, not only are these salt healing and soothing they present in a stunning fashion.
By:Priscilla, New Maryland, New Brunswick Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I really enjoy the dead sea salt. The price is fantastic as well.
By:Shirleen, Penetanguishene, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Add a bit of natural clay to colour the salts! Instead of petroleum dyes, you'll be adding therapeutic value to your bath salts!
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This salt is HUGE! I love how lovely it looks mixed in with the other salts in my mix.
By:Linda, Council Bluffs, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jan-2010
Rating: Wow! This salt really holds up to a lot of EO's and it dissolves nicely in warm water. My dry skin is so much softer after a nice soak in the tub with this salt. A+++ quality at a very reasonable price.
By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is such a great product! it really helps my very dry winter skin, it really relaxes my muscles and relieves stress. The salts dissolve very well.
By:Sheri, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: If you are looking for chunky salt you have found it. This is a hearty salt that will stand up to Essential oils and make for fantastic bath salts. They are also a great addition to a relaxing foot soak.
Rating: Amazingly strong. These salts are able to hold up to way more essential oils than you think they could without crumbling or melting. Yet they melt beautifully in your bathtub or foot spa. I highly recommend this product!
By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Love the Dead Sea Salt in my bath and when making bath salt's. The price is great. Cant wait to bye more.
By:Chantal, Leland, North Carolina
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Oct-2008
Rating: This is certainly coarse. I thought it would be finer and wanted to make scrubs. It's the size of pebbles. But this is really nice. I have mixed it with all kinds of oils and used it as bath salts. I'm still trying to figure out how much oil to use, it's never enough; but the salts dissovle pretty quickly and really make the bath relaxing. I'm eager to get the same salt in "fine" to make scrubs. I tried the recipe here and like it.
By:Gretchen, Phoenix, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2008
Rating: Being a first time buyer on ND I had no idea what to expect from this product, When it finally came I was absolutely impressed. If you're making salt scrubs I would recommend getting the fine salt which is absolutely wonderful as well.
Rating: Make yourself some bath salts with these mineral salts and some essential oils and dried flowers. Not only does it help aching muscles but any skin irritations can be soothed and the salts help to draw out any infections.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I used these salts to make bath bags, mixed with dried flowers and essential oils. I was so impressed with how quickly they dissolved! And the price on these is great as always!

Rating: My husband has serious psoriasis. This eases his itch and helps control some of the scaling.
By:Brenda, Dorchester, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is top quality for a great price. Its perfect as my bath salts and leaves my skin soft and body relaxed. The addition of essential oils enhances the results.
By:Yvonne, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: So, we purchased this product (among others) 10 days ago and our items arrived today. The MINUTE I opened up these coarse salts I had to sample them. 6oz of Salt, 8 drops of fragrance, and one tablespoon of sunflower oil later I had my cocktail!
I HAVE NEVER HAD A BETTER SOAK IN MY TUB!
These are by far the best salts I've used to date. My search is OVER!
Rating: I haven't needed it for joint pain, but the recipe included above is AWESOME! It leaves your skin absolutely glowing. I feared when I ordered it that the individual salt granules would be sharp-edged, but they aren't at all - perfect for body scrubbing!
By:Karen, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love this salt. It dissolves quickly and I already have so many customers that want more of it.
By:Allison, Hampton, Virginia

Rating: I concur with the other review regarding joint pain. As a massage therapist, I use this product at least once a week in a bath (2 cups of it) to refresh my tired, hard working body. My skin feels softer and relaxed over all. A great product to mix with essential oils such as cajeput for joint and muscle aches and pains, or any one of New Directions Lavendars. Superior quality!
By:Cindy, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Once again, New Directions has provided a superior product with pricing that none of their competitors could touch for the comparable item. They come through as the supplier "par excellence" every time!! My customers love this product and it can be marketed with or without fragrance. I use it personally for joint pain and I have customers that get relief with skin conditions. This is the real deal and I highly recommend the Dead Sea Mineral Salt from New Directions for all applications!!!!
