Did you know that there are 84 vitamins and nutrients in Himalayan salt? And, did you know that the more colorful your salt is, the more nutritional value it has? Last week, I learned these two fun tidbits at the Salt Cave of Darien, and I can’t wait to go back!
From the moment you step through the door, you feel a sense of calm. The entire space feels serene and tranquil. The cave is a wellness destination with various therapies that can help you destress, detox, and improve your overall health.
After we locked our belongings in cubbies, Arianne, the owner, opened the door to the cave, and we were immediately transformed into an oasis of peace, calm, and serenity. As I walked over to check out the waterfall, the salt chunks crunched beneath my feet as though I was at the beach. The walls are illuminated with a dull orange glow, and the air felt so very fresh. All five of my senses were impacted in such a positive and exciting way!
The cave is made up of 4,000 tons of Himalayan salt and provides so many benefits. It allows for quality time with friends or family and helps you relax and unwind. Salt therapy offers many health benefits, and it will enable you to escape and take a break from the outside world.
The space was large and open. I felt very comfortable. I would describe the nights as relaxing, refreshing, and renewing. Salt therapy intrigues me, and this is definitely something I could see myself doing more regularly.
After our session, I had time to peruse the goods! The entryway is filled with many different salt gifts! Everything from salt lamps and salt nightlights to salt candles and oils. There are beautiful pieces of jewelry, soaps, and lotions. All of these products are fun and have added health benefits! I made sure to snag a few for holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
The cave is a perfect space for you and your friends, family, or co-workers to gather. It is ideal for a moms’ night out or a date night with a few other couples. The Salt Cave of Darien will work with you to customize your experience. They offer fun add-ons such as a wine tasting with a virtual expert, reflexology, yoga, as well as a big-screen project to Zoom in the family or host a game night!
