The Seaweed bath

EXTERNAL SEAWEED TREATMENTS


Seaweeds offer a wide range of therapeutic possibilities both internally and externally. The term Seaweeds in this case refers only to macro-phytic marine algae, both wild and cultivated, growing in saltwater.  The most used external applications are the seaweed bath, it use for cosmetics, skin and hair care.
Ireland, the Mediterranean, the Pacific Northwest, and other coastal  areas have long histories of using seaweed baths for relief from muscle  and joint pains, eczema, ectoparasites, and prostate swelling.

Iodine passes readily through the epidermis and alveolar cell walls into the body in addition to intestinal absorption. This means that any iodine  we breathe or get on our skins is likely to be absorbed if we are a bit iodine deficient. Long weekends to many holidays were used  and taken by the early English Victorians to the impoverished West Coast of Ireland. There they steamed and soaked luxuriously in very  hot baths filled with seawater and at least 6 gallons of fresh Fucus serrattus, a particularly mucoidal brown seaweed. This treatment  erformed very thorough exfoliation of old dead skin squamous debris, stimulated peripheral circulation, and imparted comfort to many aches and pains. Swollen prostate glands seemed to shrink. Now more complicated mixtures of different seaweeds are used. The seaweed  hydrated and reduced in size for easy shipment and storage.

The most exciting part was the amazing increase in skin sensitivity and touch ability. Seaweed bathing became a must for newlyweds and those seeking romantic revivals in fading libido relationships. Dozens of new seaweed baths have been built in the past decade in response to both  renewed interest in the healthy effects of seaweed bathing, and demand  as result of the  entry of the Irish Republic into the European Union.
