    Gargling - Stir 1/2 teaspoon salt in an 8-ounce glass of warm water for use as a gargle for sore throats.
    Cleaning teeth - Mix one part salt to two parts baking soda after pulverizing the salt in a blender or rolling it on a kitchen board with a tumbler before mixing. It whitens teeth, helps remove plaque and it is healthy for the gums.
    Washing mouth - Mix equal parts of salt and baking soda as a mouth wash that sweetens the breath.
    Bathing eyes - Mix 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a pint of water and use the solution to bathe tired eyes.
    Reducing eye puffiness - Mix one teaspoon of salt in a pint of hot water and apply pads soaked in the solution on the puffy areas.
    Relieving tired feet - Soak aching feet in warm water to which a handful of salt has been added. Rinse in cool water.
    Relieving bee stings - If stung, immediately wet the spot and cover with salt to relieve the pain.
    Treating mosquito and chigger bites - Soak in saltwater, then apply a mixture of lard and salt.
    Treating poison ivy - Soaking the exposed part in hot saltwater helps hasten the end to poison ivy irritation.
    Relieving fatigue - Soak relaxed for at least ten minutes in a tub of water into which several handfuls of salt has been placed.
    • 1/2 cup baking soda
    • 1/2 cup dry milk
    • 1 cup epsom salt
    • 1 cup sea salt
    Mix all ingredients together in a large ziploc bag and use as bath salt

    Removing dry skin - After bathing and while still wet give yourself a massage with dry salt. It removes dead skin particles and aids the circulation.
    Applying facial - For a stimulating facial, mix equal parts of salt and olive oil and gently massage the face and throat with long upward and inward strokes. Remove mixture after five minutes and wash face.
    Removing tattoos -CAUTION-This is a medical procedure that can be done only by a physician. It is called salabrasion and requires several treatments by rubbing salt on the tattoo. Healing is required between treatments, but there is virtually no scarring.
