Benefits of Pink Salt Bars in Saunas
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt has become quite popular in recent years as an additive to one’s diet regimen, often described as the most nutrient-dense and purest form of salt on earth.
Rich with vitamins and minerals that have been shown through research to be beneficial to one’s health, wellness, and longevity, it’s most often used in cooking, however, has since begun to be used in yoga studios, meditation sessions, and you guessed it, saunas!
Contrary to the dietary salt that’s sprinkled on your food, however, pink Himalayan sea salt can also be purchased in brick/bar form that’s then added to the external environment, in this case, a sauna.
With that said, if you’re curious to gain a better understanding of what a pink salt bar is, how it's used in the content of a sauna, and what its benefits are for your health, continue reading!
What is a Pink Salt Bar?
As mentioned in the preface, a pink salt bar is simply a curated stone made of pink Himalayan sea salt, shown to boast a myriad of benefits for one’s health and wellness.
Withstanding its evident beauty that illuminates the environment in which it stands, pink salt bars aren’t merely used to improve aesthetics as a welcoming decoration. Contrastingly, it also works to reduce stress through a process known as negative ionization.
The benefits, however, expand much wider than its primary stress-relieving abilities…
The Benefits of Pink Salt Bars in Saunas
Saunas have also been shown to boast several incredible health, wellness, and longevity benefits which we’ve discussed at length in previous Salus Saunas blogs. Without the presence of any added element, saunas provide an environment that stimulates fat loss, improves mental health, reduces stress, aids in recovery, and much much more…
What if we told you, however, that there were ways to increase the prevalence of these benefits even more?! Well, with the addition of pink salt bars, you can!
As mentioned earlier, through the negative ionization process, pink salt bars have been shown to discharge the negative ions present in the bacteria and contaminants present in the presented environment.
At its most basic, this process works to purify the air with which you breathe throughout your sauna session. On a deeper level, however, this process works to provide several other health benefits…
Those benefits include but are certainly not limited to:
- Boosted Mood
- Strengthened Immune System
- Improved Sleep
- Stimulated Respiratory System
- Decreased Risk of Disease
Other reported benefits of pink Himalayan sea salt bars in saunas include the reduction of cellulite, the relief of stiff muscles, a reduction of toxins, a reduction of stress and anxiety, and reduced signs of aging/promotion of longevity.
Again, while all of the aforementioned benefits are present in saunas without the installation of pink salt bars, said benefits are only made more profound with its addition.
Saunas and Salt Bars
If you’re looking to improve upon your wellness routine and further the benefits of your regular sauna use, consider implementing a pink Himalayan salt bar or two to the interior of your sauna.
While more research certainly needs to be done on pink Himalayan salt bars, the reported benefits and evidence thus far that have been presented are encouraging, to say the least. Above all else, there’s no negative side effect to adding a salt bar to your sauna, so it’s worth giving it a shot.
At the very least, the beauty of an emphatic salt bar will provide you and your guests with an inviting, tranquil, and calming environment that other saunas wouldn’t otherwise provide.
