There are various beneficial ways to use Himalayan Salt, other than in cooking. Some of these are:
• Consuming salt sole
• Spelotherapy – Inhaling salt therapy
• Salt brine bath
• Salt Slabbing
As the salt dissolves in the water, it results in a concentrated, electrically charged matrix of the 84+ trace minerals contained in the salt. Sole is water that is fully saturated with unrefined salt. This ionic salt and trace minerals nourish and replenish each cell in your body.
Benefits of Himalayan salt sole:
Fill a glass jar about 1/4 of the way with Himalayan salt (or Real Salt or Celtic sea salt), either ground or in chunks. Fill the rest of the way with filtered water. Add a plastic lid, shake and leave overnight. To know that the water is fully saturated there must be undissolved salt left in the bottom of the jar. If you have stirred with a plastic spoon or shaken and no salt remains, add more salt.
In the morning, take 1 tsp. of sole, mixed into some room temperature water, on an empty stomach. Don’t use metal utensils with your sole as metal will oxidize and releasing other metals and chemicals in the water.
Keep refilling your jar with salt and water when it runs low. It lasts indefinitely.
Spelotherapy, also called salt therapy, utilizes salt to address respiratory diseases and improve overall health. Since the 1800s, many people visit European salt mines (of Himalayan salt) to breathe in the salt-rich air. One modern form of salt therapy consists of sitting in a room pumped with salt-laden air.
When the salty air is inhaled, the minute salt particles travel through the entire respiratory system. The antibacterial and antimicrobial properties purify and detox the lungs and sinuses.
This has proven to be effective for:
It is furthermore believed to aid with snoring.
Adding Himalayan salt to a bath creates a rejuvenating, detoxing, and relaxing experience in your own home. The salt water carries the electrical charge of the salt, along with the dissolved minerals. A salt bath helps draw out toxins, deep cleanses the skin, and helps cleanse the body energetically.
For the most powerful detox result, make a Himalayan salt “brine” for the bath: use 1 kg of Himalayan salt dissolved in a warm bath for approx.15min.
For a gentler detox and more economical option, add only 1-2 cups of Himalayan salt (or Real Salt) to a warm bath. TRUE salt is unheated, air-dried sea salt, which contains over 90 trace minerals and contains no flowing or anti-clumping agents.
Salt Slabs — Slabs will ensure a better taste and mineral content.
Heated: slabs can be used to sear veggies, shrimp, fish fillets, and thinly sliced beef, and you can even fry eggs. Dense salt blocks conduct heat amazingly.
Chilled: use fruits, sushi, veggies, or cheese as a decoration.
Frozen: cold delicious desserts and sorbets.
Clean-up requires only a simple scrub or rinse because Himalayan salt is a natural anti-microbial product.
