4 Ways to Use Magnificent Magnesium Dead Sea Salts


When it comes to indulging in some nourishing self-care, nothing beats a soothing soak in the tub with Dead Sea salts! They have a multitude of skincare benefits and are also incredibly effective in relieving stress and tired muscles. We’re sharing our favorite things about this wonderful nutrient-rich salt, and why you need to use it in your own self-care routine.

What Are Dead Sea Salts?

Dead Sea salts actually do come from the Dead Sea, like their name suggests. These magnificent salts contain 21 minerals not found anywhere else in the world—minerals like magnesium, calcium, chloride, potassium, sodium, and bromide. These powerful minerals are best known for relieving aching, tired muscles, arthritis, and even symptoms of fibromyalgia.

While you can travel all the way to the Dead Sea to soak in its goodness, you can use Jordan Essentials’ Dead Sea Salts to enjoy the benefits right in the comfort of your own tub.


Jordan Essentials Dead Sea Salts
At Jordan Essentials we take our Dead Sea salts seriously! We “power up” the soothing effects of our Dead Sea Salts by adding extra magnesium and stress-relieving essential oils, like peppermint or lavender. Our proprietary formula is a custom blend of Dead Sea salts you won’t find anywhere else! The natural minerals and added magnesium are most beneficial and produce a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on the body.

Why We Use Dead Sea Salts
One of the most common reasons for using Dead Sea salts is to heal tired, achy, and sore muscles. Even if your muscles aren’t sore, you can benefit from soaking in Dead Sea salts for their relaxing effect on the body and the mind. But what many people don’t know is that they are also beneficial in improving your skin too!

Dead Sea salts detoxify the skin and remove impurities, giving the skin a fresh, younger appearance. Packed with minerals – they will work together to enhance skin hydration, removing flakiness and the ashy, dry appearance we so often get after a day out in the sun and sand. Minerals like calcium, potassium, and zinc especially help relieve itchy skin.

4 Ways To Use Dead Sea Salts

Here are 4 ways to use Dead Sea salts at home and reap the benefits of these much-needed minerals!

    1. Take a “spa” bath: Add about a ¼ cup of Dead Sea salts to your warm bath. If you prefer to create your own essential oil blend, then use our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts. Just add a drop of two to of your favorite oil your salts and mix before adding them to your bath. Or try one of our therapeutic essential oil blends, like Peppermint, Lavender & Eucalyptus, or Oatmeal Milk and Honey.
    2. Make your own foot soak: Add 2-3 tablespoons of our Dead Sea salts to a foot bath of warm water and allow the salts to_C2A0529.jpg completely dissolve. Get comfortable and let your feet soak in the water to heal. The minerals will be absorbed into your skin, treating both your tired feet and body by replenishing it of depleted minerals.
    3. Use to soothe dandruff: Yep. Dead Sea salts can even diminish dandruff! Simply combine 1 tablespoon of our Unscented Magnesium Dead Sea Salts with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp and wait 5 minutes. Then rinse well and wash your hair with Moisturizing Shampoo. The mineral components give the scalp a deep cleanse, combating the bacteria and yeasts that cause flaky skin and dandruff. The salt acts as a natural exfoliator, scrubbing away dead skin cells and buildup. Make sure you finish with our Daily Conditioner to seal in the hydration!
    4. Heal your nails and cuticles: Soak your nails in a mixture of 1 teaspoon Dead Sea salts, 1 drop lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons water, and ½ teaspoon olive oil. Combine the ingredients well and soak your nails for 5 minutes. Then scrub them with a nail brush and rinse well.

There are so many wonderful benefits to using Dead Sea salts for your skin, your body, and your mental health. It’s time to take a trip to the Dead Sea (aka your bathtub!) to reap all the benefits of our favorite self-care ritual!

Ahh summer! Sunny skies, road trips, swimming, and … sneezing? If you have seasonal allergies, this might be your reality. With trees, grasses, and flowers blooming and spreading pollen everywhere – allergy symptoms can take a toll on your summer fun.

Here are 8 tips to help keep your allergy symptoms at bay:

Don’t touch your face: We should all be in the habit of keeping our hands away from our faces anyway – but this applies for allergies too! This can help prevent pollen from coming in contact with your eyes and nasal passages, and making your symptoms worse.

Incorporate Essential Oils: Our Allergy Blend Essential Oil Spray is a wonderful blend of Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint Essential Oils. Combined with a soothing witch hazel base, this spray can lessen symptoms such as itchy, puffy eyes while also opening airways and helping you breathe with more ease.

No mixing, no measuring – perfectly blended and safe to spritz directly onto your body (ages 2+), in the air, and even on your bed linens for a more comfortable night’s sleep. You can also use this spray on clothing, towels, rugs, inside your car – the possibilities are endless. Safe to be used in homes with pets, too!

Stay clean: Allergens can stick to hair, skin, and clothes. Be sure to leave shoes at the door, rinse your hair and body, and toss clothes into the laundry basket after spending time outside. Washing bed sheets frequently (and using that wonderful Allergy Spray!) will ensure they are allergen-free for bedtime.

Plan yard work strategically: Warm, sunny weather means time spent outside working in our gardens or mowing the lawn. If you suffer from allergies, you may have to limit your gardening when pollen counts are high. Avoid lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores that stir up allergens. Pollen tends to be highest from 5am-10am and at dusk – so try to plan your yard work in between those times.

Stay inside: High pollen counts can put a damper on outdoor parties and activities. On particularly warm and windy days, pollen is spreading and sticking to everything. If you do spend time outside, wear sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat to prevent allergens from getting into your eyes. Watch the weather and plan to spend time outside after rain showers. Rain helps to settle any allergens in the air. 

Vacuum before leaving the house: Vacuuming stirs up dust and allergens increasing the likelihood of them triggering symptoms. Plan to vacuum your home before stepping out to allow dust and allergens to settle. You can also spray Green & Clean in rooms you have vacuumed to help the dust settle quicker.

Keep indoor air clean: Using an air purifier will help remove contaminants from the air, and in turn, should decrease your exposure to pollen and dust. Jordan Essentials Green & Clean can also be added to air purifiers for added moisture in the air.

Keep pets clean: Summer is fun for everyone, pets included! But, during peak allergy season they can become a walking allergen themselves. Try to keep your pets off of furniture and out of the bedroom. Make sure they get washed more frequently to keep the pollen from hitching a ride inside with them. Our Pet Shampoo smells great and gets pets super clean! Spray with our Pet Spritzer for a shiny coat and resfreshing scent of bamboo and mint. 

There you have it, eight ways to make it through allergy season without itchy eyes and a scratchy throat. Of course, if symptoms become more severe, seek professional medical advice.
