Mud baths, which commonly consist of hot spring water, peat, and natural minerals infused with rich volcanic ash, have been valued for their therapeutic and rejuvenating properties for thousands of years. Natural black mud from the Dead Sea, for example, contains a plethora of minerals that not only absorb dirt and oil from the skin, but have also been known to improve joint and muscle pain. These Dead Sea mud treatments are usually applied to the hair, face, and body, though most mud-bath connoisseurs in Western countries opt for full-body immersion. Historically, mud baths were once available only in those regions possessing an adequate geological supply of volcanic material. However, mud baths are now available in most high-end spas around the world, and remain a highly-favored treatment for those seeking both relaxation and rejuvenation.
