The cleansing, deoderizing and healing benefits of salt are known since ancient times. I use Himalayan Pink Salt to add color and 84 trace minerals to this bar of soap. If you have open sores, cuts, scrapes, bites or any other abrasion, this bar will reduce or eliminate them. It softens water and your skin. It is gently scented with marjoram essential oil that when combined with lavender and cedarwood gives you an authentic spa experience.
