The Dead Sea Salt is known worldwide for its therapeutic effects.
It is extracted from the Dead Sea, which has 29% salt content, a very high percentage, compared to only 4% found in the oceans. In the Dead Sea, the salt concentration is so high, that swimming is the same as floating.
It is darker in colour as compared to the refined salts due to the absorption of essential minerals from the clay lining of the body of water. Unlike refined salts, the preparation of sea salt usually includes very little processing, so it retains its moisture and mineral treasure.
These minerals are present in a form that is easily utilized and absorbed by the human body. The climate and the geographical location of the region also play a significant role in the quality and combination of minerals offered by the sea salt.
The use of sea salt dates back to the early ages, as its healthy effects were known for a very long time.
