"Thalasso" comes from the Greek word that means ocean and the word "therapy" from the Greek word "therapeia" for care. Thalssotherapy involves using a therapeutic combination of fresh seawater, seaweed, marine derivatives, and heat to induce an exchange of minerals and toxins between our body and the water. The bath should draw out the toxins while the skin absorbs the nutrients, namely sodium, iodine, magnesium, potassium, fluoride, sulfur, carbonates, phosphates, chloride, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements from the bath. Seaweed is a concentrated source of seawater nutrients. The temperature of the bath should be around 100 F for maximum vasodilatation and exchange of toxins/nutrients. After a thalassotherapy bath, you will feel rejuvenated and relaxed.
Also use powdered sea vegetables in facial packs, hair wraps, soaps, salt scrubs etc.

"I would just like to tell you thank-you for having a Web site with such delights. I love the butters that I purchased, and the fragrance oils that came along with my order smell wonderful. Since my purchase, I have been excited about trying to concoct the butters with a fragrance to make my own little butter. You definitely have a faithful customer in me."
