Are bath salts safe for Jacuzzi’s and Hot Tubs?  This question comes up often and the short answer is yes, however, we do have a few recommendations on how to choose the best salts that won’t interfere with the mechanisms of the spa as well as a few other helpful hints to assist you in getting the best results possible.


Selecting the type of salt:

Choosing the right type of salt is very important. We only suggest using salts that will dissolve completely in the water. Some salts which are highly mineralized will leave particles behind that will not dissolve completely. Bearing in mind the safety of the mechanics of the hot tub as well as the fact that water in these systems is not as frequently changed, we recommend the following salts in Fine Grain.

Minera Dead Sea Salt
Epsoak Epsom Salt
Calspa Pacific Sea Salt

Scents & Colors:

Many of our customers do use scented and/or colored salts in their Jacuzzi’s though our recommendation would to be to use one of the regular, raw salts listed above.  If you do choose to use color and scent it’s best to clean the hot tub and change the water often to prevent a build-up of over colored and over fragranced water.


We offer Dead Sea Salt and Pacific Sea Salt with mixed-in dried herbs.  We suggest using these particular salts exclusively in your bath tub and rather than in your Jacuzzi.

*Since all Jacuzzi’s, hot tubs, whirlpools, etc. are built differently, we strongly recommend checking with the supplier of your spa prior to using bath salts.
