Mud baths are known for relieving muscle and joint pain as well for their detoxifying properties and aiding circulation, plus, it’s great fun too!The mud found in the River Parrett is rich in magnesium and sulphur. The mineral-rich mud not only draws impurities from the skin but also gives the feeling of mental wellbeing.Rich in various nutrients, the mud is mixed with sea water and fermented overnight.
