[Sulfur is a mineral naturally occurring near hot springs and volcanic craters. The “rotten egg” smell of sulfur mineral baths is caused by sulfur dioxide gas escaping into the air. Sulfur has been used medicinally since ancient times, and it is contained in every cell in your body. It is a component of three different amino acids (the building blocks that make up protein). Approximately 0.25% of your total body weight is sulfur. It is most concentrated in keratin, which gives you strong hair, nails, and skin. It is known as “nature’s beauty mineral” because your body needs it to manufacture collagen, which keeps your skin elastic and youthful. Sulfur is used primarily to ease the red, itchy rashes of conditions such as eczema and diaper rash. It also helps to protect your body against toxins in the environment. In addition, people with arthritis may find pain relief from taking a soothing bath in hot sulfur springs.]

Having read this, Wolf and myself hit the road and faced the challenge to find the “Sulphurous Waterfalls of Saturnia”, which are basicly a part of the curative thermals baths of Saturnia. Saturnia is noted all over the world for its thermal baths, which curatives waters gush out of the volcanic rock face at a temperature of 98.6 F degrees, during the whole year. The sulphurous springs come out from a volcanic crater at a rate of almost 800 litres per second. The waters go down along a natural extensive watercourse, shaping impressing waterfalls immersed in a bush nature, developing in a succession of pools dug in the volcanic rock by the age-old erosion.
