About Wild Seaweed Baths by Halen Môn
For hundreds of years, people have been bathing in seaweed for its nurturing, restorative and healing properties. In warm water, seaweed releases its mineral-dense oils, offering rich relaxation, soothing tired muscles and encouraging escape from the everyday.
Halen Môn is the first business in Wales to offer traditional seaweed baths to visitors to their Saltcote in Anglesey. Customers will be able to soak in fresh (cleaned!) seaweed and wonderfully warm water, in their own individual upcycled whiskey barrel, and enjoy the well-known rejuvenating effects.
Seaweed baths were common in Europe at the turn of the 19th century, Ireland boasting 300 or so traditional ‘bathhouses’, where there are still a handful today.
This year, using the pure water generated as a by-product of their sea salt harvesting process, Halen Môn will offer this bespoke outdoor bathing experience, celebrating the unparalleled view in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
