Just before taking bath, you apply the mud all over the body and let it dry. After few minutes, take a shower. The entire mud is highly concentrated with minerals, some of which are specific to the Dead Sea. The mud when applied to the skin allows your skin to stay naturally moisturized.

You can also heat this mud and apply only to aching muscles and joints, let it dry and then rinse it off. You can feel the difference immediately.
