Popular with tourists from all over, the Dead Sea is one of Earth’s most spectacular natural and spiritual places. This ancient body of water, which borders the Jordanian east coast and Israel to the west, is considered one of the world’s leading and most unique healing sites for treatment of skin and lung diseases. Thousands of visitors from around the globe visit every year staying in Jordan and Israel, both natural reserves well-known for their beautiful hotels and retreats.
The Dead Sea is located at the deepest point in the Great Rift Valley, the world’s longest geographic phenomenon – 6,400km (4000 miles) crossing through 20 countries. It is over 1,312 feet below sea level, the lowest point on the face of the Earth. Its water is 10 times saltier than average seawater, with a salt content of 34% – compared to about 4% in the oceans.
This incredibly buoyant mineral-rich, salty water enables one to float effortlessly. It is unusually warm and has attracted visitors since ancient times. Cleopatra used the Dead Sea as her natural beauty spa and today, the unique combination of minerals offered are used in a wide array of industries from Egyptian salves and soap, to mummification and agriculture, to skin care. It is one of the most healing natural sources existing on Mother Earth and many known celebrities use natural Dead Sea products to maintain a youthful look.
Dead Sea salts pack a powerful oomph, with at least 35 different kinds of mineral salts present in massive quantities. The many benefits of the water come from not only the mineral content, but also the very low content of allergens and pollens in the atmosphere, reduced ultraviolet components of solar radiation, and higher atmospheric pressure at this great depth. Each of these elements provides a specific health effect, as do the many minerals present in Dead Sea Salt, some which replenish those in our own bodies including chloride and bromine, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
Dead Sea salts soften and smooth skin, and help to heal acne, psoriasis and eczema. Dead Sea Salts enhance your natural glow, restore dry skin, and can be used as a fabulous bath treatment. They are also known to relieve stress and muscle aches, and to purify surrounding energy.
Dead Sea mud is even higher in concentration of minerals and humid acid – rich with silicon dioxide, calcium oxide, iron oxide, titanium oxide, and chloride to name a few. When blended with essential oils, Dead Sea mud and clay provide anti-inflammatory, desensitizing and healing properties which help detox the body, and relieve muscle tension and joint pain. You will find these products used in popular healing and beauty treatments in some of the world’s most renowned spas.
