Get the benefits at home—for pennies
Salt therapy costs about $40 for a 30-minute session, but experts point to hot water spiked with sea salt as a low-cost alternative. For the respiratory benefits, dissolve 1 tsp. of sea salt in a bowl of just-boiling water, place your face at least 12 inches from the bowl and breathe in the steam. For the whole-body benefits, fill a bathtub with 2 cups of sea salt and warm water, then soak for 30 minutes. A product we like: Natural Vitality Natural Calm Bath (at CVS and The Vitamin Shoppe stores), which is made with Brazilian sea salt.
