The last time we heard salt could be a potential insomnia cure it was mixed with pine extract and added to a bathtub. This time around, you simply breathe it in.
Apparently, salt caves are the next 'big thing' when it comes to relieving your insomnia and improving your sleep naturally. Salt caves are rooms coated in salt from floor to ceiling. Salt is also mixed into the air you breathe when inside the cave. All you need is 45 minutes in the salt cave to experience the benefits of the treatment.
Clients at one spa have claimed that the salt cave has improved their snoring and even cured their insomnia. As for why this may be the case, it's thought that the salt contains minerals that may be missing from some of our diets - particularly potassium, magnesium and calcium.
We have to admit that we're a little skeptical on this one - but if you live close to a spa that offers salt therapy, surely it's at least worth a try?
