Healing Benefits of Salt

The healing benefits of salts include:

  •  using table salt as a powerful protector of the energy field around the home
  •  taking a pinch of table salt on the tongue 3x a week just before bed to strengthen the salivary glands and condition the stomach
  •  to massage out sore muscles by combining table salt with apple cider vinegar
  •  to create a nasal wash by combining table salt, baking soda and cream of soda - this keeps mucous from going into the system and helps neck, throat and shoulder problems
  •  using sea salt in hot packs to relieve menstrual cramps
  •  to relieve hip and shoulder pain by sponging a solution of bicarbonate of soda in warm water with heated sea salt
  •  using Epsom salts to reduce swelling and inflammation, either by adding to a bath or creating a hot pack
  •  to help a pet adjust to change by adding a little bit of table salt to their food or have them lick it off your hand.

The three main kinds are table salt (sodium chloride, often has iodine in it) sea salt (which contains nearly every common element and has positive vibrations from sea creatures) and Epsom salts, which has magnesium in it. In my opinion the best is Epsom salts, which I use:

  •  in a nasal wash for allergy relief
  •  in a hot sauna as an overall skin rub and wonderful exfoliant
  •  in the bathtub for sore muscles and for soothing heartache. 

I have found it beneficial when experiencing troubles with my partner for both of us to soak in an Epsom salt bath together to recalibrate our vibrations and find harmony again.
