Bath salts can be very relaxing. They are a perfect way to rejuvenate your skin with a refreshing soak. Create a perfect mood with soft candle light and soothing music.
A wonderful fragrance can complete the effect. But sea salt can be very hard on some fragrances. The traces of magnesium salts in sea water can contribute to the oxidation of the fragrances leading to a foul smelling product. Dead Sea salt and Epsom salts have very high magnesium contents which accelerates this transformation. Additionally evaporation can also result in fragrance losses.
Fortunately there is a natural solution. Dendritic salt is prepared from highly purified salt that contains no magnesium. It is crystallized using a special technique that creates star shaped crystals. The little pockets on the crystals will hold your oils and fragrances to protect them from the rancidity causing sea salt crystals. These little droplets also slow evaporation of your fragrances. .
