Bestcare - Additional Uses for Himalayan Crystal Salt

Body Peeling

Do you feel tired and without energy? Make some time and treat yourself to a full body peeling. First take a shower with warm water to open the pores. A body peeling made from a mixture of pure Himalayan salt and oil is ideal for detoxing. You will achieve the same purifying effect as going on a several day fast. At the same time you will receive an energy boost due to the high concentration of minerals in the salt mixture. The peeling will also enhance the blood circulation of your skin.

Directions for Use: In a little bowl, mix 3.5 tbsp. of pure Original Himalayan crystal salt with 1 tbsp. of macadamia nut oil and a quarter tsp. of 100% pure Lavender oil. The mixture needs to be stirred until smooth. Lie down on a bath towel and rub your whole body with this mixture. You can enjoy deeper relaxation if somebody else does this for you. Wrap yourself in the towel then cover yourself with a blanket. Keep the peeling on for about half an hour. You will experience a warm flow throughout your body which shows that the body cells have begun their work. Rinse off the peeling with warm water and gently pat dry your skin. Don't rub it dry. The oil will remain on your skin and make it soft and velvety.

Directions for Sole Inhalation - Heat 4-8 quarts of water until boiling. Add the salt (1 oz. for each quart of water) and let it dissolve. Cover your head with a towel and inhale the vapour, keeping your face far enough away from the hot steam so as not to burn yourself.

Open Wounds

A poultice made of Sole (Sole poultice)

Open wound injuries should only be treated with a diluted solution of 1/2 oz. crystal salt diluted in 1/2 Cup water. If you use a higher ratio the injury will create a burning feeling. Use only quality, non-carbonated mineral water to treat  open wounds.

Take sterile gauze, soak it in the sole solution, rinse it and apply it on the wound. Then wrap a dry cloth around it.

Detox and Flu and Fever Relief

Dip a clean cotton shirt in a 3% sole solution – 2 tbsp. of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart of water. Rinse the shirt thoroughly and put it on. Cover (wrap) yourself in a dry towel and lay in bed (covered with your blanket. ) After about half an hour you will start sweating. You can support the effect by drinking a cup of Linden blossom tea. Stay in bed for 60 to 90 minutes. Take off your shirt and shower. Treat yourself to an hour rest.

This procedure is an excellent detoxification tool and activates the metabolism. The brine shirt shows excellent results with flues with high temperatures. In such cases it is better than the brine bath.

Runny Nose and Sinus Infection

Using a Neti Pot: Runny or congested noses are not considered as illnesses per se. Nevertheless they have and impact on our well-being. There are some who suffer continually from chronic nose congestion. This condition can lead to sinus infections and headaches. If you currently suffer from these symptoms, you should make it a habit to flush your nose. The salt solution moisturises the mucosa and supports its natural regeneration, making it more difficult for bacteria and viruses to nest. Especially during winter the dry heat from electric heaters and furnaces targets the mucosa. Use a neti pot for effectively cleaning the sinuses at least twice daily as the infection persists. Ideal for preventing runny or congested noses as well as sinus infections.

Cold Feet & Gout

Brine Soaked Socks: This procedure has a similar effect as the shirt but is especially helpful when you suffer from cold feet and gout. Soak a pair of clean cotton socks in a 3-5% sole solution – 2-4 tbsp. of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart of water. Wring the sock thoroughly and put them on. Wrap your feet in a dry towel. Leave on for about 60 minutes. Treat yourself to an hours rest.

Dental Hygiene

Healthy teeth and gums are not only visually appealing but also very important for our overall health. Pure Himalayan crystal salt is an excellent product for dental hygiene. Most common tooth problems derive from an over acidic condition in the mouth and throat. The salt will build up a pH neutral mouth flora and will help protect your tooth enamel.

How to use: Brush your teeth every morning with concentrated sole. Press the brine through your teeth with the help of your tongue. Gargle with brine for about three minutes, then spit it out again.


Herpes sores are very painful, annoying and persistent. The herpes virus remains always in our nervous system. If our immune system is weakened, these viruses can multiply at an explosive rate and form these very well known blisters. Once they appear, the usual remedies offer little relief. Try some Himalayan crystal salt. The intake of the sole will strengthen your immune system.

On an empty stomach, drink 1 tsp. of sole (see making Sole) with good quality water. Continue drinking good quality water throughout the day, at least 2 to 3 quarts. Apply some pure, concentrated sole solution (26%) directly to the infected blister with a cotton swab every hour.
