Salt is great as a mild sanitizer for the skin. It also helps kill fungus and bacteria. Think of a lovely walk on the beach kicking the waves and dipping your feet in the sand. For those of us who live inland, Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt with their healthy minerals are a way to halt the spread of the fungus and yeast we so often find annoying. Salt offers a natural way to curb problems. Essential Oils that are used here such as Tea Tree, Lavender and Rose help enhance the effectiveness of the salt and add pleasure to the experience.
