3 Ways to Detox Your Body Using Himalayan Salt!
Himalayan pink salt is packed with 84 essential trace minerals (including iron, calcium and potassium), making it one of the most mineral-rich sources on the planet. If you’re currently looking to detox your body, Himalayan salt can help to release a buildup of toxins, improve digestion and even create a more positive home environment.
So with this being said, what are the best ways to detox your body using Himalayan salt? Keep reading for our top 3 natural remedies to get you started.
Detox your body with a Himalayan salt soak
Regularly soaking in Himalayan salt can be a great way to remove toxins from our bodies. Soaking in Himalayan salt allows our bodies to absorb the salt minerals while simultaneously releasing toxins through the process of osmosis.
Not only can a Himalayan salt soak assist with mineral absorption and toxin release, but it can also help to reduce inflammation and balance the PH levels of our skin. Try soaking in a Himalayan salt solution for up to 20 minutes at a time, 2-3 times a week to experience the benefits. You might also choose to add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oils or some magnesium flakes to enhance the experience!
Drink a glass of Himalayan sole solution daily
Creating your own Himalayan sole solution is another simple way to experience the benefits of Himalayan salt on a daily basis. “Sole” solution refers to a concentrated salt water solution that has reached saturation point, and can easily be created at home.
To create your own Himalayan salt sole (often referred to as the “water of life”), simple place 1 ½ cups of Himalayan salt in a glass container, fill with good quality spring water and seal the lid tightly, leaving it to sit overnight. If the salt has completely dissolved the next day, add an additional ½ cup of salt. When you can still see undissolved salt crystals at the bottom of the jar, this means saturation point has been reached and your sole is ready to consume!
Drink sole first thing in the morning on an empty stomach by adding one teaspoon of the solution to a 250ml glass of water and mixing well.
Introduce a salt lamp into your home or workspace
These days, we’re surrounded by electronics more than ever, from our iPhones to our tv and computer screens. Electronic devices emit positive ions, which can have a negative effect on our health and wellness when we are exposed to them in large quantities. This is why you might find yourself feeling tired, lethargic or suffering headaches when you spend too much time in front of your electronics.
To reverse the effects of positive ions, simply place a Himalayan salt lamp in the areas of your home (or workspace) where you spend the most time. Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions, which helps to combat the positive ions and provide a more restful and relaxing environment!
