Bath salts have been around for many years and were probably first used by Gypsies and sailors as a cure for everything from headaches to toothaches. More modern uses include the treatment of arthritis and pain. Salt baths have also been discovered to be very effective in the relief of colds and congestion.

Most importantly, bath salts contain a wide range of different herbs such as chamomile, lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Thyme, and more.
Dead Sea salt contains high levels of sodium chloride. Most people don't consider a salt containing high levels of sodium chloride as "salt", but it is. Sodium chloride is a common ingredient in many artificial cosmetic products. However, the best salts are made in the Dead Sea located in Israel. Most dead sea salt contains less than 1% sodium chloride. Most table salt on the market is made in a different region and has higher levels of sodium chloride, which is a byproduct of other processes.
