Himalayan Salt Applications and Recipes

L iving water and natural salt are foods, not medicines. Due to their special properties, these two life sources give us energy and have a balancing, neutralizing and detoxifying effect on our bodies. There is no better natural means to stimulate the body's own regenerative capacity and restore our equilibrium - water and natural crystal salt have a positive effect throughout the body. Drinking the sole made with Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt will enhance your physical and emotional well-being (inner harmony) and boost your energy levels. The Conventional Medical  Community protecol treats symptoms with potentially harmful medications instead of rooting out and eliminating the cause of the problem. These medications may put the body into a state of imbalance and cause it to lose its ability to swing back and center itself for restoration and repair.

If you have decided to switch over to a holistic alternative, proceed with caution; if you take prescribed medications regularly, you must seek medical advice before stopping them 'cold turkey' because further adverse side effects could be caused if you do not go through a weening-off period. Ask your doctor for advice, (hopefully, he/she is open to natural and holistic healing methods) to help you cut down on medications and eventually do without them altogether.

Below you will find all of our Himalayan Salt Applications and Recipes on how to prepare and use our Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt for maximum results.

Crystal Sole Salt Basics - Law of Physics: Salt crystals dissolve in water until a saturated 26-percent sole is formed. The concentrated sole is the starting point for many of the applications described within.

How To Make Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole Solution

(1) Add 1 part Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt to approximately 2 to 3 parts of good quality water in a clean glass container with a lid.  Ensure that the water completely covers the Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt and let sit overnight. The warmer the water the faster the Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt will dissolve.
For example to make 8 ounces of Sole Solution you would add approximately 2 ounces of our Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt to 6 ounces of water.

(2) If all the Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt has dissolved, add a little more Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt to the water and allow it to sit a couple more hours. If you see some of the Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt at the bottom of the jar, it means your Sole Solution is at 26% maximum concentration and is ready to be used. You always want to have some Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt at the bottom of the jar and as your adding more water to make more sole, you will add more Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt.

(3) For a sole drink, take up to a teaspoon of concentrated sole from the container, add to a glass of water and stir vigorously. 

(4) A saturated sole will keep indefinitely as bacteria, viruses, or fungi are NOT able to multiply in it.

(5) Below is the approximate amount of Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt you will need and the amount of water to make that specific application if your not following steps (1) through (3) above.
