Customizing with Dead Sea Salt

When you love your mud bath and all the benefits, why not customize it to make it even better?  Since we are all low in minerals and need them replaced in our bodies, we add the pure, non-coated certified Dead Sea Salt to our baths.  It is also an important addition for those with eczema and psoriasis!  We add one-half to one cup of the Dead Sea Salt to the Peat Mud Bath for added benefits and an amazing softness to the skin.

Customizing with Essential Oils

We also add Bergamot Essential Oil to help with the urinary system, cystitis and discharges.  Since it is known as “Nature’s Prozac”, it is ideal for those with anxiety and depression.  Bergamot is also beneficial when Dead Sea Salts are added at the same time.   Eucalyptus Radiata is added to the bath for the respiratory system; especially useful for fever and easily tolerated by children.  Lavender is so relaxing in the bath as well as excellent for acne, boils, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, sores, and inflammation.  If you have a child or adult that will benefit from being more “calm”, Lavender is definitely the oil of choice.  Rosemary ct.1,8 cineole aids in strengthening the immune system when it is depleted.  (Do not use if prone to epileptic seizures or hypertension.)  Also, Rosemary is helpful for those with poor circulation.

As we have found, essential oils a very beneficial as an addition to our mud bath for many reasons and ailments.  We add 5 to 15 drops and use only Wild Crafted or Organic Essential Oils especially if you desire maximum results.  Make sure you add them before you get into your bath and mix thoroughly.  In addition to all the benefits of bathing in our incredible mud, you will find you will have more energy which we all desire.

Why You Should Soak in a Peat Bath Tonight

Benefits of Peat Baths

Aside from the sheer warmth and comfort of a bath, a peat bath allows the vitamins, minerals and plant extracts to be absorbed through the skin enabling natural healing, stimulating circulation, replenishing lost minerals, flushing toxins, balancing hormones and exfoliating dead skin cells.

How to Run a Peat Bath

For one full bath, fill the tub half full and dissolve one-half to one cup of peat moor mud in the tub in very warm water.  After getting into the tub, hot water can be added to desired comfort.  Relax in the bath for 10 – 15 minutes.  Do not rinse off after the bath.  Just towel dry, rest for at least 1 hour or better yet, retire for the evening.  You will not be “muddy”!  You may shower in the morning.  Don’t worry about the plumbing as the mud actually helps clean the pipes and is also not harmful to septic systems!

The bath can be used daily until symptoms are reduced or when desired comfort level is reached.  Afterwards, use twice a week to maintain health.  We also use the baths to detox our bodies and keep hormones balanced.

Precaution:  Use body temperature water for those with heart conditions, high blood pressure and lupus!

***For pregnant women, they may use a foot bath with one ounce of mud after four months of pregnancy.
