FAQ Seaweed Baths

Is the Seaweed fresh?
Yes, The Seaweed used is freshly harvested by ourselves right here in Lettermullen. We use traditional sustainable cutting practices and only harvest what we need.
How do you clean the Seaweed?
After it is harvested, the seaweed is thoroughly washed in fresh water. It is then washed again before it goes into your bath and then submerged in scalding hot water.
What do you do with the used Seaweed?

The Seaweed used in your bath is yours to take away with you. You could have another Seaweed bath at home with it and then use it as a fertiliser out in the garden.

Any Seaweed that is not taken is donated to local farmers and gardeners to be used as fertiliser.

Do the baths have seawater in then?
Yes, our baths are made with local seaweed and local seawater.
Can we have a couples Seaweed Bath?

Yes, here at the Seaweed Centre we have a double (two baths in the same room) and single bath rooms.
