    Hello Ladies

    The relation of salt with the human body is inseparable and unaccountable. Many of us know salt as a flavoring agent, to enhance the taste of the food.

    Salt when used in moderation preserves the blood cells and blood vessels. Salt is also used for its medicinal value, curative properties, as disinfectant, in making many fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals and detergents, as stain remover etc.

    In this thread salt as a wonder body scrub is discussed.

    A sure way to exfoliating your skin is the use of salt scrubs. The rough texture of the salt helps to remove the dead skin and help it to breath freely, removes the toxins that block the pores of the skin, gives a youthful look. Home made salt scrubs are devoid of chemicals, facilitate the blood circulation and gives a natural glow to the skin.

    Although salt can be used as a scrub by itself, adding olive oil or sesame oil makes it easier to scrub and nourishes the skin.

    A basic salt body scrub can be made at home with salt, liquid soap of your choice and essential oils. Moisturizer and olive oil also can be added. Use your imagination to prepare your own scrub. Some more options are besan, milk, rose water, rice flour, almond oil, baby oils, turmeric etc. Keep changing the combinations, but minimize the scrubs to once or twice a week.

    Rubbing the salt scrub underarms removes the underarm sweating problems.

    Smelly feet problem can be tackled with soaking the legs regularly in salt water solution, or rub the soles with salt scrubs.

    It is believed rubbing the mixture of salt and pure ghee on the temples relieves headache due to cold.

    Washing the hair with salt water believed to help remove dandruff.

    Rubbing the body with the mix if mustard oil and salt removes skin dryness,

    Applying the mix of pure ghee and salt cures the cracked legs.

    Applying the mix of ginger juice and rock salt removes pimples and acne.

    Applying the rock salt on the gums relieves the pain in the gums.

    Rubbling the salt relieves the pain in case of insect bites

    Discretion should be used while using the salt scrubs, especially when one has open cuts, skin rashes and allergies.
