The benefits of seaweed in our products

In our products, we use organic seaweed powder and liquid seaweed which is rich in vitamins (including vitamins B12, vitamin E, amino acids, minerals.)

When applied to the skin seaweed treatments act as a powerful purifier that draws out impurities while imparting benefits to the skin.  It helps to slough off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin which gives the skin a healthy, revitalized, and glowing appearance.  Seaweed contains fatty acids, which makes it suitable for use on irritated skin as it helps retain the skin’s moisture levels, and alleviate chapping, cracking, and roughness caused by dryness of the skin.  It can also be used for all skin types.

It is also a natural anti-inflammatory, it can also reduce redness and blotchiness in the skin.  

A seaweed bath can be good for those that have psoriasis, acne, aid back and muscular pain. It can also ease rheumatism, arthritis and is good for circulation.  

Caution:  If you are pregnant or sensitive to Iodine you should avoid using our products.

General Information on Salt Lamps and Pink Himalayan Salt

Himalayan pink salt lamps help clean the air through an operation called hygroscopy, which attracts and absorbs contaminated water molecules from the immediate environment and locks them into the salt crystal.  The process has the amazing ability to remove cigarette smoke, dust and other contaminants from the air.

Himalayan salt is a rock salt that is pink in colour and rich in minerals, including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium and zinc.  Farmed from the Himalayan mountains, this salt is commonly used in food preparation as well as in bath soaks.

Try adding a few chunks of this salt to your bath to help increase relaxation, detox the body, improve circulation and remineralize the skin.  Himalayan salt has antibacterial properties and is often helpful with eczema and psoriasis.

 

Himalayan Salt Crystals for Salt Lamps

A large inland sea, buried by mountains and slowly dehydrated millions of years ago is the source for pure Himalayan Salt.  The small mines are believed to have been discovered by Alexander the Great in 326AD in what is now northeast Pakistan

Himalayan Salt Crystals contain high amounts of trace minerals and emit energizing negative ions when warmed.

They have an energizing effect and can improve mood when used with a salt lamp.

When warmed, Himalayan salt emits energizing negative ions, purifying the air, improving mood, and providing a natural feeling light source that is beautiful for day or night.  these negative ions are the same ions found in a naturally rejuvenating source like beaches, mountains, and waterfalls.  negative ions help neutralize positive ions emitted from devices such as phones and computers.

How it works:

Ions are electrically charged atoms or molecules

Positive ions can be carried by water molecules

Salt attracts water molecules

As salt crystals warm, water molecules evaporated, neutralizing the trapped positive ions
