What are the benefits of seaweed bathing?

by | Aug 21, 2023

The benefits of bathing in seaweed have been well-known for centuries.

The mineral-dense oils are incredibly moisturising, making it brilliant for anti-ageing and especially for dry skin. In fact, it is thought that farmers along the West coast of Victorian Ireland who used seaweed for fertiliser found handling the weed brought relief from their aches and dry skin, which is how the tradition  began. 

Soaking in seaweed is utterly relaxing, and some people believe it has detoxifying properties, making it a ritual especially perfect for tending to sore muscles after running, walking or surfing. 

What’s more, the experience is 100% natural – a restorative soak that will, quite simply, leave you feeling wonderful. 

Intense moisturisation for your skin


When activated in warm water, seaweed releases its mineral-dense oils, so rich and moisturising it has a texture similar to olive oil.

The warm water opens up your pores and blood vessels, allowing the skin to be more receptive to the minerals and vitamins that have been released into the water. 

Traditionally seaweed baths have been thought to help a series of skin conditions, with vitamins A-K leaving your skin baby-soft, and giving you a natural glow. It has also been shown to help with muscle aches and joint stiffness.

Utter relaxation 


A seaweed bath is a multi-sensory experience. Breathe in the heady scent of the sea,  take a moment to listen to your surroundings, feel the sea air on your face, and let the warm water hold you. 

Taking an undistracted moment to yourself is  an important part of slowing down and relaxing. Seaweed bathing take this to the next level. 

The warm water increases blood circulation and cell oxygenation, making you feel wonderful.
