Celtic Sea Salt
It makes a huge difference as to what kind of salt you’re using. It is worth spending a little extra on salt that has not been depleted of the minerals that we are actually craving when we want salt.
The absolute best one I’ve found, that my family has been enjoying for almost 30 years now, is Selina Naturally Brand Celtic Sea Salt. It is sustainably harvested, doesn’t contain additives and the trace minerals are left intact.
Most of the table salt brands that you see at the grocery store have preservatives like dextrose, and have been refined with chemicals. Table salt is typically heated at extreme temperatures as well, which destroys the nutritional value.
Refined, processed salt isn’t good for you. On the contrary, Celtic sea salt offers many health benefits, including:
- helps prevent muscle cramps
- improves electrolyte balance
- regulates blood pressure
- alkalizes the body/balances pH
- balances blood sugar levels
- increases the body’s resistance to infection
- boosts immune system, promotes healthy skin
- improves brain health
- helps eliminate mucous buildup
- increases energy and helps regulate your sleep patterns
There are many external uses for Celtic sea salt as well.
Try soaking in a warm, detoxing bath with one cup of Celtic sea salt, a cup of baking soda and a few drops each of: lavender (lavendula angustifolia), ginger and eucalyptus essential oils. These salt baths improve your immune system and lower your risk of infections, along with detoxing impurities.www.organicfacts.net/celtic-
If you’ve read my columns about coconut oil pulling, an Ayurveda practice for keeping gums and teeth healthy, you’ll remember that the first step is swishing with a little Celtic sea salt and warm water beforehand.
It also makes an excellent gargle for treating sore throats. It is a natural exfoliate, and can be gently massaged onto the scalp to improve circulation, strengthen hair follicles, promote hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Be Well and God Bless You.
