Kiss Of The Ocean

Updated: Mar 14

While in Jordan this past January I braved the cooler waters to experience weightlessness in the salty Dead Sea. It wasn't as calm as I had imagined and wow was I kissed, from head to toe and even up my nose! I was very grateful I never got any salty water in my eyes. I have heard that it can be excruciating. It's incredible how much softer and smoother my skin was after being in the vast salt bath for 15 minutes. As well as a brilliant way to relax and unwind, It's been said that it relieves aching muscles and joints, strengthens and exfoliates the skin, improves blood circulation, and eliminates toxins. Have you been kissed by the ocean?

The ocean is a natural salt brine but to harvest/mine the salt, the brine is pumped to the surface and evaporated to create salt. Salt production has taken place throughout the world from South America to Poland. Today the largest salt mines are in Pakistan with 10 billion tonnes in reserve across three mines.

Would you believe that the largest salt producer is China? Once the salt was said to be white gold, due to its function in food preservation. First discovered by the Egyptians in a dry riverbed. It's said that they were the first civilisation to use salt to preserve fish and meat.

Salt has been used in the mummification process, used as currency, and as well as preserving food, it is also used to cleanse and absorb negative energy from your home.

Well, maybe this has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
