How to Take a Himalayan Salt Sole Bath


Himalayan salt is a natural pink crystal salt that contains over 80 minerals, which can soothe skin conditions and rashes and relax sore muscles. A salt sole, or brine, bath is one in which the water is so saturated with salt that some crystals remain undissolved on the bottom of the tub. In a salt bath, your skin absorbs the minerals but it takes some time to set up the bath and allow its benefits to affect your skin.

Things You'll Need

  • Himalayan salt crystals
  • Clean bathtub
  • Fill tub with about 3 inches of hot water to completely cover the bottom. Place a pound or more of Himalayan salt crystals in the water. Allow the salt crystals to dissolve for about 30 minutes.

  • Fill tub with very warm but not hot water. If all the salt crystals are dissolved, add more until several settle on the bottom without dissolving.

  • Allow 20 to 30 minutes to relax in the water, soaking every part of your body. Do not use soap or rinse off the water. Allow your body to air.

  • After air drying, wrap up in a robe or comfortable clothes and rest for at least 30 minutes. A mineral bath can be demanding on your body.

Tips & Warnings

  • Drink water before and after your bath.
  • Some pink mineral residue or even rock particles will be left in the tub after your bath. Rinse the tub to avoid staining.
  • Consult your doctor about taking a salt bath if you have blood pressure problems or heart conditions.
