    For regular baths: 1/2-1 cup of salts in WARM (not hot) water, soak for 15-20 minutes 2-4 days per week.

    If you're talking about a HOT TUB with jets, I'm not really sure if it's advisable to use salts there.

    I have been doing a full body mask with sea salt, Skin saver body and aloe vera. I leave this on for 20 mins. and then I shower, my skin feels really soft. Does this have the same effect as a sea salt bath? I was wondering if I could do a MO foot soak after my sea salt body mask because I thought I read somewhere not to put MO in your sea salt bath. Thanks

    Magnesium Oil should not be used in the salt soak. You should do salt soak/bath/mask first, then use mag oil after to push those minerals in.

    john5 - yes, the mask for about 20 minutes is basically equivalent to doing a salt bath.

    You can do a mask--grind 1-2 TB of the dead sea salt finer (I use a mini-chopper). I take a cup with that to the shower and add just enough aloe vera gel to dissolve the salt, slather on and leave on for 10-20 minutes. I have recently added about 1/4 cup of the salt to about 3/4 cup aloe vera gel in a bottle and let it dissolve. Then I use the liquid out of that and slather on.

    After you shower it off, be sure to use a good, natural lotion. I like to use shea or mango butter mixed with Teresa's Skin Saver Body lotion or almond oil.

    HTH!
