The Shocking benefits of Dead Sea Salt Baths

If it’s good enough for Cleopatra!

You may be familiar with Cleopatra for her milk bath’s but did you know that she was actually a bigger fan of Dead Sea Salt baths? She even put her famed beauty down to her salt baths rather than her milk baths! Her love of Dead Sea Salt even led her to persuade Marc Anthony to conquer the regions surrounding the Dead Sea so that she would have exclusive access to the sea.

Cleopatra used the Dead Sea extensively in her beauty regimen, and she commanded that infrastructure be built around the Sea so that she could establish pharmaceutical and cosmetic clinics to offer salt therapies to privileged guests.
