Some like to buy real salts imported from renown places like the Dead Sea, or Himalaya mountains along with specific muds, lotions or soaps.

Home Spa for Detoxification:
Body detoxification starts internally, by drinking water and continues externally.
Our bodies get loaded down with toxins from the products we use, foods we eat, not to forget the stress we are daily exposed to. - These toxins get into our bodies and cannot escape because the pores of our skin are clogged with animal fats, oils, waxy residues, alcohol, and chemicals.
After drinking water and a balanced nutrition, bathing is the way to clean out those residues from the pores of your skin and allow your body to work the way it was intended. Sea Salt is one of the best ingredients for body detoxification and rejuvenation, with the condition of being pure without any added chemicals.
"Detoxification is not something that is traditionally given much time in medical training. In fact, many in the medical profession will give you a blank stare if you mention the topic.
Granted, terms like "colon cleansing", etc. are commonly used terms. However, there is enough misinformation out there, that many of these techniques have gotten a bad name.
Dr. Krohn does an outstanding job describing and outlining the process. First she starts with a history of medical approaches used. Next she describes how "politics" help to shape the face of traditional medical practices. "- Customer review

Home Spa Himalayan Salt Bath Detox recipe
A Himalayan Crystal Salt bath is a sheer ocean of energy. Bioenergetic deficits become balanced and weak links become strengthened, reactivating your body's electric current. The organs' functions start to resonate with the natural frequency patterns of the minerals in the bath salts. This activates the regulatory mechanism of the body and its self-healing powers.
The cleansing effects of a 30-minute sole bath equal that of a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and balances the pH factor of our skin.
In contrast to a normal bath, in which moisture is extracted from the skin, a sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. This is the reason why sole baths are good for dry skin as well.
In your home spa, disolve some salt in the bath tub (for 100 to 120 liters (27 - 32 gallons) of water, it takes about 1.2 kg. (2.6 pounds) of salt), and fill it with water. The water should be the body temperature. Source: Product Description

I stopped using tooth paste of any kind, because even though they are declared natural, they still contain glycerin, which is a byproduct that harms your gums (even the skin, when in soaps).
I read a booklet explaining all this and how a caring mom started to do her own tooth soap, which she safely uses for the entire family. Fortunately she's selling it and her website.
In my own family we are all using it and it really works well.
However, one time when we ran out of it, we used salt - you make a brine of quality salt, pour it on the tooth brush exactly as you would do with the soap, brush and rinse.
Salt is a strong antiseptic and being alkaline it eliminates the acidity produced by food in your mouth, leaving your teeth absolutely clean. It also heals any eventual small abrasions to the gums done by the brush. Even though you use the tooth soap, salt can still be used for rinsing after brushing.
