How To Perform the Sea Salt Body Polish in Your Spa

Dead Sea salts are high in minerals and trace elements and, as in seaweed, they leach toxins from the body.

This is also true when Dead Sea salt are mixed to a paste with an essential oil, algae extract and water.

Aromatherapy is ideal in this treatment as the benefits of inhalation and penetration combine to increase the effects of elimination, exfoliation & detoxification
