Himalayan pink salt is harvested by hand from high in the Himalayan mountains. It is different from table salt in that it is minimally processed so it retains most of its natural nutrients. It is a much healthier alternative to table salt and can be used for cooking and healing remedies. It is unrefined, unprocessed and contains eighty four minerals and trace minerals including iodine. The following are a few of the amazing healthy benefits of adding himalayan pink salt to your daily diet.

Himalayan pink salt is very effective in helping to heal many skin infections. It has many nutrients and anti-bacterial properties that are great for many different skin disorders. It is inexpensive, and if applied directly to the skin can provide the following benefits:

• Soothes and heals dry irritated skin
• Helps in treating insect bites, blisters, acne and eczema
• Speeds up healing of wounds and skin infections
• Helps to draw out toxins from the skin
• Helps prevent scarring
• Helps in regulating oil gland activity
• Increases the consumption of oxygen to the skin

This amazing salt also helps and aids in digestion. It helps the food we eat pass easily through our digestive tract by stimulating the production of digestive juices. Digestion is not possible without salt. Himalayan pink salt helps our bodies produce hydrochloric acid as well as digestive enzymes that are responsible for breaking down the food we eat into important nutrients that our bodies need.

A simple mixture of himalayan pink salt and water produces a liquid that can help prevent and help heal a host of ailments. This mixture is referred to as “sole” and is pronounced so-lay. To make sole, place a one–inch square of himalayan salt inside a glass jar, pour three inches of good quality spring water over the salt, and let it sit overnight. If all of the salt dissolves, add a little more. When the water is 100% saturated and cannot dissolve any more salt, it is ready to use. Always make sure there are undissolved crystals in the bottom of the jar as this is your proof that the water is totally saturated with salt and ready for you to use.

Use this sole solution as you would toothpaste and mouthwash, and it will help fight tartar and bad breath. The anti-bacterial properties of himalayan pink salt effectively clean teeth while also strengthening the gums. This sole solution can also be used to help heal ear infections. Use it like you would ear drops , and it will help kill the bacteria as well as any damaged and infected tissues in the ear.

Himalayan pink salt is unrefined and totally natural. It does not harm the body or raise blood pressure as does regular table sat. It can be used for everything from cleaning teeth to clearing up acne and other skin disorders. It is gentle enough to use as eye drops and strong enough to kill stubborn bacteria. Approximately one teaspoon of the sole solution can be taken every day as a preventative measure and is an ideal addition to everyone's daily diet.
