Salt packs are an ancient and effective remedy to fight pain and infections: let’s see how they work.
Salt packs are a simple, inexpensive and effective remedy for treating different types of pain and infections . Warm salt, for example, is excellent in case of neck and back pain, while salt and water help disinfect and relieve small wounds.
Let’s take a closer look at how to get rid of a stiff neck, muscle aches and infections using salt, just like our grandmothers did!
How to make salt packs?
Hot salt packs are excellent to treat neck pain, back pain, menstrual cramps and in general all muscle pains . The heat, in fact, dissolves muscle contractions, while the salt releases precious minerals to the body.
Making these wraps is really very simple. First, put 3 or 4 handfuls of coarse sea salt in a pan (wholemeal or pink Himalayan salt is better) and heat it until it starts to smoke and crackle. At this point, remove the pan from the heat and pour the salt into a cloth or a cotton towel, wrapping it well and tying the cloth with an elastic to prevent it from coming out. If necessary, use precautions not to burn your hands.
Once this is done, you just have to put the salt pack on the painful area and keep it in place until it becomes cold. Obviously, if it gets too hot, let it cool down for a few minutes first. You can repeat the treatment every day, even several times a day.
Packs of water and salt to disinfect
Salt is also a great disinfectant for minor wounds, pimples, and mouth infections.
To clean wounds , dissolve a tablespoon of sea salt in a glass of water and use the solution with sterile gauze. The same solution can also be used to rinse and gargle , while for pimples it is better to dissolve only a teaspoon of salt in water, to avoid drying the skin too much.
