Well, one can’t feel pretty or look pretty if one’s eyes are puffy and his/her teeth are yellow. Read this article to learn how salt can help eye puffiness and yellow teeth along with other salt remedies.
Now, there are those individuals who simply use a saline solution to avoid any possible sinus infection or to feel relief from post-nasal drip. For those who would like to make their own saline solution, need to boil their tap water for 3 to 5 minutes and then cool until lukewarm before using. It is recommended to sterilize one’s water for any solution one plans on using.
I can still remember my grandmother boiling the water she used for drinking purposes and that’s because she didn’t trust the tap water she was using. I always thought that was one of the smartest things she taught me.
Not only is salt used in helping one deal with a sinus infection, but it is also used in an eyewash, reducing under-eye puffiness, and in cleaning teeth.
As an Eyewash
Dissolve ¼ teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and used it as a wash for tired, irritated eyes. Be sure to boil your tap water for 3 to 5 minutes and then cool before using.
Reducing Under-Eye Puffiness
Dissolve ½ teaspoon of salt in a cup of hot water; soak a washcloth or cotton balls in the solution, and apply to the puffy areas.
Try a mixture of salt and baking soda for your “toothpaste.“ Pulverize sea salt in a blender or crush it with a rolling pin, mix with an equal amount of baking soda, shake, and store in a small glass jar. Mix with a bit of water, and brush as usual. Both salt and baking soda have antimicrobial properties that kill many of the pathogenic bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease.
It’s important to know that salt is used as a breath sweetener, in reducing fatigue, as an exfoliate, relieving insect bites, and poison ivy. But, before we share this additional information, I believe that when one is purchasing salt, one should consider buying unrefined salt. Unrefined salt has all 84 minerals and minerals that come from the sea.
As mentioned in the first line of this article, here are more reasons for purchasing salt:
As a Gargle, Mouthwash, or Breath Sweetener
Mix a teaspoon of the tooth-cleaning mixture in a cup of warm water. (Boil your tap water for 3 to 5 minutes and then cool before using.)
Soak your tired feet or entire body in a warm, salt-infused bath for a restorative effect.
As an Exfoliant
Mix equal parts of sea salt and olive oil and rub gently over the body for an exfoliating, moisturizing scrub. Rinse with warm water. For the face, mix equal parts of salt and honey.
Relieving the Pain of Insect Stings
Mix salt with a bit of water and apply to the sting immediately.
For Poison Ivy
Soak the affected areas in hot salt water to help relieve the itch and dry up blisters.
