Want to learn about a beneficial DIY that will take you seconds to make? Read below:
Sole: (pronounced so-lay) is water that has been fully saturated with natural salt.
When I first grabbed a jar of pink Himalayan salt off my mom’s kitchen cabinet, I was kind of confused what it was doing there. I hadn’t heard much of it, and it’s beauty made it seem like it belonged more in my jewelry box. The light pink color and delicate cuts were fascinating to me. I needed to know more. What can I do with this? Why does mom have it?
The salt popped up on the blog last month in Brigette’s hydration post, and again, my mind grew more and more curious. I did some research, and found that this salt can bring some pretty amazing benefits to your body, if consumed in a certain way.
This takes me back to the word Sole, which is a salt/water mixture that I whipped up last week to test out. Making this will be one of the quickest and easiest DIY’s you can do, and will leave you with a handful of benefits.
What You Need:
1 large Mason jar
1 to 2 cups of raw pink Himalayan salt
1 cup of filtered water
First, put two cups of the salt into the mason jar. I used one that had measurements on it, so I would be able to tell how much salt is being absorbed into the water.
Pour water into the mason jar, place a plastic lid (do not use metal) on top, and shake gently. Leave on the counter overnight to let the salt dissolve.
The next day, take a look at your little science project. If all of the salt is absorbed, keep adding a couple spoonfuls more each day until you have some remaining on the bottom. Seeing salt on the bottom of the jar means the water has absorbed its maximum amount of salt, and the Sole is ready to be consumed.
Make sure to not use a metal jar lid, or let a metal utensil touch the Sole.
To use: simply mix 1 tsp. of Sole in to a glass of water, and consume every morning on an empty stomach. Happy Sole!
This remedy has long lists of healthy benefits. Here are four that I’m most excited about:
Minerals: Sole can supply the body with 84 essential ionized minerals.
Hydration: The balance of minerals you are gaining while drinking your water helps your body accept the minerals into your cells to hydrate you.
Detox: Sole is a natural anti-bacterial and can help remove bad bacteria from your body from all of the helpful minerals.
Circulation: The replenishing of nutrients can help stimulate circulation, which soothes sore muscles and helps with cramping.
