It is said that the ‘father of medicine,’ Hippocrates, was amongst the first to discover the, almost magical, healing ability of sea salt, after noticing how quickly seawater would heal wounded fishermen’s hands.
Not only is sea salt a great medicinal healer, it is deeply purifying. It has the power to draw out and dissolve negative energies from the emotional and physical body. This is especially helpful if your day involves interacting with others, where too often you end up picking their stressed or anxious energy. For Empaths, salt can be a huge grounding, energy clearing tool.
The best way to get an external, daily, salt cleanse (if you don’t live near the ocean) is in a salt bath. Immersing the body for at least 20 minutes in salt water will get rid of any negative emotions picked up during the day. This is especially important for Empaths who absorb negative energies like a sponge.
For best results add 1 to 2 cups of sea salt to a warm bath (along with your favourite essential oil or a crystal). If you don’t have time for a soak then another great option is a salt-scrub before showering. (You can easily make this from fine milled sea salt and oil). Not only will the salt clear unwanted energies, it will also leave your skin silky smooth and glowing.
