Comforting, invigorating, deeply relaxing action. Helps relieve muscle & joint aches, great for arthritis, rheumatism, lumbago, gout. Immune-boosting. Promotes circulation.

Sodium chloride salts have an action which is quite different from the magnesium-rich Siberian salt. It act on the body by forming a salt layer on the skin which stays there for several hours after a bath, acting as a stimulator of nerve endings, micro-circulatory processes in the skin, and, through reflex action, of the body systems responsible for processes of adaptation to non-typical external stimuli. The penetration of the salt electrolytes into the outer skin layers (epydermis) changes the environment of the skin. This is accompanied by changes in its reactivity and metabolism.

The other factor is the increase in body temperature due to the formation of a salt layer on the skin which prevents evaporation of water from the skin. With sodium chloride baths such a rise in temperature is more prminent than with the other bath salts (e.g.magnesium). The rise in skin temperature, in turn leads to dilation of capillaries in the skin, increase in circulation, increase in consumtion of oxygen by the skin, and an increase in glandular activity. The increase in the blood flow to the skin is followed by an increase in the volume of circulating blood (from the "blood depots"), increase in the blood flow to the heart which in turn stimulates cardiac activity. This allows to "exercise" the heart muscle.

It has been proved through scientific research that sodium chloride baths are better than other salt baths for increasing the tone of the veins and stimulating venous return. Such baths have been researched to decrease viscosity of the blood, micro-circulatory problems, increase in the capillary network. This leads to the increase in the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin and body organs and removal of carbon dioxide and metabolic waste.

Research has also shown an increase in lipid metabolism and regulation of metabolic rate under the influence of sodium chloride baths. They help regulate the nervous system and its functions.

The main effects registered as a result of patients using sodium chloride baths in the clinics are:

  • Increased micro-circulation, and as a result, an increase in overall blood circulation;
  • Pain relief;
  • Reduced inflammation;
  • Increased metabolic activity;
  • Improvement in the functional activity and overall condition of tissues and organs.

Fir Needle Essential Oil

Fir needle essential oil has a wonderful, comforting woody aroma of a freshly-cut Christmas tree. Like any coniferous oils, it has strong expectorant properties, and is used by people who have respiratory complaints. It is also great for stress relief, insomnia, anxiety. Fir Needle oil is good for invigorating the endocrine, urinary, respiratory systems. Due to the presence of terpenes, has infection-fighting properties. Helps with rheumatic, arthritic pains, back ache, gout. It is great for people weakened by disease, since it promotes recovery, restores energy and vitality.

How much will you need for a bath?

Normally 10g per 1 litre of water is enough. So for 50 litres of water one will need 500g of salt. Higher concentration will produce a more prominent effect. Added essential oils will not change the therapeutic effect of such baths, but will increase an efect on the central nervous system due to therapeutic properties of oils.

What are the therapetic effects of sodium chloride salt baths?

  • Improve circulation;

  • Stimulate nerve endings, transmit the stimulation to the CNS which prompts the body systems into self-healing;

  • Speed up body metabolism, promoting weight loss;

  • Relieve inflammation, including chronic;

  • Relieve pain - analgesic action;

  • Antiseptic;

  • Relieve skin conditions: some forms of psoriasis, neurodermatitis, eczema, hives, acne.

  • Relieve fatigue

  • Relieve muscle and joint aches and pains

  • Baths with the salt from the Urals promote relaxation due to a high level of bromide which is a natural sedative.
