How to find relief for charlie horse leg cramps naturally

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

leg crampIf you’re currently expecting, you’ve probably heard of (or perhaps already experienced) some of the aches and pains pregnancy can bring about, but you might not have been prepared for the suddenness or intensity of the sharp, squeezing, twisting pain of a charlie horse.

Green Bath SaltSome women have described the pain of charlie horses as feeling like their legs were being squeezed in a vise or clamp; others have described feeling as though their legs were being tied in knots and being pulled at both ends. However you want to describe it, the pain of a charlie horse is certainly unpleasant.

What is a charlie horse?

A charlie horse, also sometimes spelled “charley horse” is a type of leg cramp that affects pregnant women, particularly during their second and third trimesters. To this day, doctors are uncertain what precisely causes charlie horse leg cramps, but common theories include the uterus putting pressure on certain nerves, and/or decreased circulation in the legs as a result of the baby putting pressure on blood vessels.

Finding relief for charlie horse leg cramps

aromatherapy bath saltsPrior to founding Castle Baths, CB owner Laura Thomas, experienced numerous charlie horse leg cramps during each of her pregnancies. Her doctor recommended an unusual solution: Dead Sea Bath Salts. She took his advice and has enjoyed the soothing and rejuvenating powers of aromatherapy-scented Dead Sea Bath Salts ever since! Now, she offers her experience and expertise with charlie horses freely to other expecting mothers.

Dead Sea Bath Salts for Winter Chills

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Dead Sea Bath Salts offer cold weather relief

bath salts - jubilee conditioning soakIt’s cold outside! The recent kink in the Earth’s polar vortex has likely left you with lingering chills and very dry skin, due in part to the extremely frigid temperatures most of North America experienced these past few days, and also due to the efforts you likely took to stay warm during the unexpected arctic blast.

Your skin definitely doesn’t react well to extreme cold, but it doesn’t react all that well to heat either. Turning up the thermostat in your home sucks moisture out of the air, and out of your skin too.

Fortunately for you, there’s a way to stay warm that won’t dry out your skin, and may help with those lingering winter chills and aches too. It’s called a Dead Sea Salt bath.

dead sea bath salts passion aromatherapyOrdinarily, a long, extremely hot bath would actually dry out your skin by evaporating its natural oils, but a lukewarm bath with added Dead Sea Bath Salts can help counteract this effect, and even help add moisture to your skin. Dead Sea Salts accomplish this by penetrating your skin’s pores and deep-cleansing them of toxins and pollutants. Once your pores are cleansed and un-clogged, they can absorb moisture from the surrounding bath water.

If your Dead Sea Bath Salts happen to be scented in aromatherapy essential oils, this will also help put just enough oil back into your skin to keep it from drying out, as well as deliver numerous aromatherapy benefits such as soothing aches and pains and promoting an overall feeling of relaxation.

Dead Sea Bath Salts vs Epsom Salts

Many of the cheaper bath salts you’ll find in box stores are made with Epsom Salts, which, if overused, can further dry out your skin. Many of these Epsom Salt blends are also scented in synthetic fragrances instead of essential oils, and thus, deliver no aromatherapy benefits and may even give you a slight headache if you happen to be allergic to one or more of the chemicals used to create the synthetic fragrance.

Pamper Your Toes – You Need Your Feet

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Do You Lead a Busy Life?

Most of us do lead busy lives. We juggle full time (or more) careers, kids, friends, and family duties on a daily basis.  Even our vacations are often packed full of events, sightseeing, or going somewhere.  We have given rise to the idea that we now need a vacation from our vacations!

Do Your Feet Hurt at the End of the Day?

Our feet feel the brunt of our daily grind, as we rely on them to always be ready. We race around on high heels (which our feet probably consider torture devices), dashing to meetings, driving the carpool, being the soccer mom.  Our poor feet are left to pay the price.  So why not give them some time off? A nice relaxing foot soak in a bucket (if you don’t have time for a nice long bath), can go a long way to repairing the strain and stress of carrying you faithfully through each of your daily activities.

Your Feet Will Thank You!

We offer several products that can help; including, our Dead Sea Mineral Foot Bath Salts and Mineral Foot Creams with Peppermint. Each of these products come in varying aromas; Jubilee, Bathsheba, and Sweet Communion.  Relax mind and feet with these aromatic bath salts while the mineral benefits of the dead sea soak into your ‘soles’ and wash away the stress and strain of the day; your feet will thank you!

Bath Salts In The News

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Bath salts are a hot subject in the news today.  I am reading all over twitter that bath salts are being pulled form the shelves. Another BIG reason why you should be using pure and authentic products such as what CastleBaths.com carries.

Baths salts are not equally the same! Many companies add fillers, fake color, artificial scent filled with Parabens! And now, we discover harsh chemicals that are actually getting people high!

We highly suggest using Dead Sea Bath Salts only. They are natural, pure and actually will not dry your skin!

Bath salts derived from the Dead Sea are much better at keeping your skin looking beautiful. This is because the minerals help feed your skin instead of drying it out. Other salts such as Epson salt generally do just that, dry your skin. Avoiding salts that dry your skin out is the best route to take when looking for bath salts to use.

Bath Salts from the Dead Sea also help you remove unwanted toxins from your skin. Each day that we live, we bring in unwanted chemicals from the air. Salts from the Dead Sea helps to remove those toxins. Other types of salts in many bath salts such as Epsom salts simply cause your body to sweat and dries out the skin.

Dead Sea Salt comes from the shores of Israel and has been around for most likely forever. Many companies and people attempt to sell dead seas bath salts at a lower price- they market the salt and how good it is- but then use sea salt in the ingredient list. Sea Salt and Dead Sea salt are not the same thing. Only Pure Dead Sea salt feeds the skin without drying the skin.

Be mindful if you see dead sea salts inexpensive– for they are most likely a fake- you know the old saying- you get what you pay for. And if you actually want salts that will dry out your skin – simply use your table salt- now that is cheap and yes, very drying!

Castle Baths Spa Products, has a full list of Natural Ingredients and what each ingredient can do to help you in your skincare needs. Castle Baths is your healthiest choice for Skincare and Beauty Products on the market today! Be beautiful, naturally- use products with purpose.- Any comments? oh…and don’t take drugs, or bathe in them!
