Deep in the Jordan Valley and 55 km southeast from Amman, is the Dead Sea. The lowest body of water on earth, the lowest point on earth, the world’s richest source of natural salts, and one of the most spectacular and dramatic natural landscapes in the whole world. Also known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which was turned into salt, The Dead Sea speaks for itself: with no living fish in it….
The extremely high content of salts and minerals gives its waters the renowned curative powers, therapeutic qualities recognized since the days of Herod the Great, more than 2000 years ago but also prevent anything to live in or develop. Because it is 4 times as salty as sea water, swimming in The Dead Sea is an incredible feeling as it is impossible to sink in the thick brine.

They are well known for relieving pains and sufferings caused by arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis, eczema, headache and foot-ache, while nourishing and softening the skin.
