When you take a vacation, it’s mostly to turn off your busy lifestyle, disconnect and rest your mind. But it is equally important to think about pampering and healing your body.
Using the earth for remedial purposes has long been a part of healing rituals of nations all around the world. And why wouldn’t it be? There are no better ingredients to put on your skin than those created by nature itself.
Mud baths and mudpacks an ancient treatment used in spas as a way to relieve arthritis and rheumatic diseases, detoxify and rejuvenate the skin, and fully relax the body. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, you’ll be happy to know there’s a mud paradise near your camping spot!
On the southwest part of the city of Pag, right beside the city beach, you’ll find Lokunja, one of Pag’s best kept secrets.
Its 20 000 m² of shallow sea holds an abundance of layers of peloid, also know as curative mud. Peloid is mud that is mostly used for therapeutic bathing. It has been accumulating and layering for centuries, affected by different geological and biological processes, and this is why it is high in minerals beneficial for the human body. It can soothe inflammations, reduce swelling, improve circulation and relax muscles. Because of their mild exfoliation and hydration properties, peloids are often used in cosmetology, most prominently as an ingredient in facial masks.
Mud varies depending on its origin, meaning it has different properties depending on the flora, fauna and soil.
Expert analysis of Lokunja’s mud reported high quality peloid and its application in healing and rehabilitation of the locomotor system, neurological and skin diseases. The people of Pag have been using this mud for ages to treat their rheumatic diseases. Based on its amazing properties, Lokunja’s mud has even been used by Pag’s physical therapy department.
Once at Lokunja, giving yourself a mudpack is pretty straightforward. Apply the mud to your skin in a thin layer, find a nice spot on the beach, get comfortable and let it dry for about an hour. The mud will turn from dark grey to white, and when it does, simply wash it off.
Are you ready to get dirty? Book your vacation and let the body and soul healing begin!
