Beauty and wellness treatments are usually done with natural oils or complements. But, do you know them well? At Piolets Park & Spa we explain you the origin and the benefits of some of these ingredients.
We don’t know exactly in what point in History, body treatments began, but one of the first mentions of the use of natural products goes back to 493 b.C, in the Book of Esther, where they talk about daily treatments with myrrh. Some years before, the father of the medicine Hypocrate, recommended treatments with vegetal oils and aromatic herbs to take care and improve the health. In oriental cultural like the Chinese or the Hindu, medicine also included using oils and herbs to heal or even to clean. In fact, the word shampoo comes from the Hindu word châmpú, which was a type of head massage with oils.
The Dead Sea Salt
The Dead Sea is known for its high salt levels. But others of its characteristics are the attributes of its salts. The concentration of minerals and oligoelements has rejuvenating effects. Among other elements we can find Bromide, which soften the skin and relax the muscles. Magnesium activates the cellular metabolism starting a faster cicatrization. But not all the effects are skin related, other minerals like the Zinc, absorbed by the skin, reinforces the immunologic system.
Seaweed is one of the vegetables which have the most minerals, becoming a very healthy product. Seaweed wrapping is a very effective way to benefit from the seaweed, but from the heat too, helping the dilation of the pores, to absorb what this sea herb brings us and to eliminate toxins via the sweat. Among other benefits, seaweed is antibiotic, antioxidant, delays aging and stimulating blood circulation. That’s how they help to reduce pain and inflammation.
