Colored salt baths are one of the locally-inspired elements that characterize Uma Spa at Tierra Hotels. Special aromas are released each time these salts are used, because they are plant-dyed using an ancient traditional method.

This unique type of dye is obtained thanks to a safe-guarded ancestral technique from the Aymara culture, in this case, and from other South American indigenous peoples, who take advantage of the enticing colors of the native flora.

“Everything is done by hand and with respect for biodiversity. From the collection of material to the creation of the product, we take the time necessary for the color to reveal its beauty and become the main attraction of whichever product it is used for,” said Claudia Salinas, founder of Kallfü (blue in Mapudungun), a business dedicated to the extraction of natural dyes.
