Sea salt is produced from the evaporation of seawater.

Salt is a necessity of life and was a mineral that was used since ancient times in many cultures as a seasoning, preservative and disinfectant. Salt was used metaphorically to signify permanence, fidelity, loyalty, durability, value, and purification.

Balneotherapy (Latin: balneum "bath") is the treatment of disease by bathing, usually practiced at spas. Sea bathing was once thought to have curative or therapeutic value. It arose from the medieval practice of visiting spas for the beneficial effects of the waters. The practice of sea bathing dates back to the 17th century but became popular in the late 18th century.

Salt is also great for skin exfoliation. Some bath salts such as phosphates have a detergent action that softens calloused skin and aids in exfoliation.
