May support respiratory health: It’s often used in salt therapy, which involves inhaling salt particles to improve respiratory health. I’ve proven that it does help. You may be wondering how??
What I do is add a little salt to warm water and inhale it hold back my head. Allow everything to run back and then pull down. This helps to get rid of all the mucus lodged in your throat from your sinus or cold. If your throat feels itchy too this is perfect to do. It is believed that the salt particles help to reduce inflammation and mucus in the airways.
Please ensure if you are doing this, do not mix it too strong as it being too strong can knock you out, ensure you can taste the salt water solution and not have to cringe.
