Located in Eastern Washington, Soap Lake was one of the most well-known mineral spas in the West. Since the turn of the century, people have traveled from all over the country to visit Soap Lake. With the main attraction being the healing waters and mineral-rich mud. Referred to as the world’s greatest medical marvel, the world’s greatest healing spot, and the world’s greatest mineral sea, Soap Lake is dedicated to healing and restoring balance in life.
The water itself has a natural mineral count of 20 and it’s high alkaline makes Soap Lake truly one-of-a-kind. This is fortunate for those seeking natural spa treatments and to heal ailments such as psoriasis, arthritis, and circulatory problems. The best way to utilize this lake’s magic mud is a mud bath! For centuries visitors have been slathering the dark, curative clay all over their bodies and letting it dry in the desert sun. The mud helps absorb oils, toxins, and moisture from your skin and replacing them with healthy minerals. Not only does this treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, it softens and tightens the skin for a glowing complexion. Just be careful while lying in the sun — the minerals and UV rays can induce rapid tanning!
