healthful and useful for a number of common ailments because

found in the natural onsen water.
A hot bath using
the onsen powders full of mineral salts is how Japanese
people look forward to unwinding at the end of the day. Add a
sachet of the mineral powder to your bath, and relax your body
while the mineral salts do their work to ease your tired muscles.
