The Himalayan salt bath has become a popular “multi-purpose” remedy for the treatment of people and animals with arthritis. I’m going to show you how to do it without making it a “superfood”. Let’s discuss the basic steps that you can use to create this relaxing therapeutic bath. Some people have learned the process by trial and error, while others learned the ritual of creating this as a way to cure their illness or injury.
The method of making this Heeralayan salt bath requires a few different steps. First, you’ll need to pour the medium grade Himalayan salt into the desired container. You’ll be pouring into a smaller basin, but you can use a larger basin for your smaller patient, especially if you’re using a smaller container.
If you’re creating a basin for your pet or human being, the bottom of the basin should be about an inch below the body of the basin. If you’re mixing this salt in a large bowl, you should put your bowl on a flat surface to be safe. In other words, if you have any concerns about the ability of the water to catch the salt, make sure that your water is hot and the bowl is cool.
The next step is to add the Himalayan salt. Place the container at least four inches above the salt for best results. Your salt should be uniformly distributed so that your pet or human can easily absorb the salt.
If you do this, the salt will be perfectly dissolved in the water. Be sure that the bowl you’re using has the correct dimensions, so you don’t end up with a scoop of salt in your aquarium. You’ll have to add enough salt to reach the surface of the water, but this is usually very close to the surface of the water in your aquarium.
The next step is to add your other items. It is important to have fresh pieces of salted fish or plant, as salt eats away at them. Also, stay away from glass containers, as your salt will eat them. Your home or aquarium should be sufficiently clean, so that you won’t end up with dangerous bacteria.
For most people, the salt and water are a perfectly happy mixture, but your experience might vary. Depending on the conditions in your aquarium, you may not want to do the final step of pouring in the water or pouring the salt in the basin.
The next step is to leave the salt in the basin for up to 15 minutes. This will allow the salt to completely permeate your water.
If you use an aquarium heater, there will be a time lag. During this time, you should add some of your regular tap water to the basin to equalize the temperature. Then, it’s time to add your pre-treatment bath solution.
The salt bath will then be complete. It will provide the relaxation and invigoration that the patient will need to begin healing. You can add these soothing bath salts over again, until your patient begins to recover.
As an aside, this experience isn’t as hard as it sounds. You should be able to create a homemade salt bath with little more than a small bowl, a pan and some seawater.
