Spring is in the air….no wait, that’s pollen!

It’s Spring in the mountains and we are excited to see the world come into bloom around us again! However, with Spring in the air, comes the dreaded allergy season.

Thankfully here at Asheville Salt Cave, we have plenty of Himalayan salt to help your sinus and/or respiratory distress! Himalayan salt is an exceptionally beneficial remedy for seasonal allergies in children and adults. 

Here are a few ways you can utilize Himalayan salt, when spring is in the air, to minimize allergies, avoid skin reactions, and neutralize pollen in your home:

Take a teaspoon of salt sole in 8oz of water daily – This cleanses the body of the toxins that trigger asthma attacks and allergic responses.

Apply Himalayan salt directly– Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and rich with minerals, using a Himalayan salt stone (a “Boo Boo Stone” as we call it in the Salt Apothecary), dry rub the skin daily for best results.

Lotion with Himalayan salt – Our Salt and Amber body lotion helps you avoid skin reactions and soothe skin conditions like eczema or dermatitis brought on by pesky allergens.

Salt lamp – Salt lamps naturally draw moisture from the air. This subsequently releasing negative ions in the air that neutralize bacteria, mold, pollen and other allergens. They help with sleeping and cleaner air quality.

Come to the cave – Salt therapy can reduce inflammation, sinus congestion, respiratory allergies, hay fever, dry cough and itchy throat.

Use a salt inhaler – They can flush away impurities and alleviate inflammation. It’s also a natural relief for asthma, coughing, sneezing, nasal congestion and allergies related to dust, mold, and pet dander.

Here’s to Spring Fever….not hay fever! Stay salty, friends.
