Preparation of Sole

Click here for instructions on uses and applications for Sole.

Place several Himalayan Crystal Salt stones in a glass container, which can be closed, and add high quality Water (Artesian Well Water or Spring Water) until full.

After approximately 24 hours, look to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. If so, add a few more crystals. When the water can no longer dissolve any more salt, the salt crystals will sit at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point the solution becomes saturated at 26%, which is stable and ready for consumption. The isotopic parts in the upper part of the glass tend to be more bio-friendly and alkaline. In contrast, the enriched Sole in the lower part of the glass contains isotopes, which are less bio-friendly and tend to be more acidic. The user should therefore only use the health-promoting Sole at the top and throw away the rest. of the Sole at the bottom. Only then fill up again with fresh high quality water.

Every morning, take one teaspoon of sole mixed in a glass of good quality artesian or spring water. Drink this on an empty stomach before taking breakfast. The amount of water is up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of sole for your daily intake. The regularity is important.
From a bio-chemical viewpoint, within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated. This in turn encourages digestion and metabolism.

We recommend Avita and Fiji water in preparation of sole. Click on the links below for more information on these products.

Avita Water or Fiji Water

The Concentration of Sole

When the percentage of concentration of the Himalayan Crystal Salt Sole are talked about in the book, "Water & Salt - The Essence of Life", they mean the ratio of water to salt.

A fully saturated solution of water and Himalayan Crystal Salt. The water becomes saturated with salt when the water can no longer dissolve more salt. At this point, the salt crystals remain undissolved on the bottom of the jar, indicating that the solution has reached it's saturation limit. The water is now fully saturated with salt. This is what we call Sole.

Sole Solution:
When we speak of a sole solution, we speak of a diluted quantity of the concentrated Sole in water. When we take the fully saturated Sole and add water to it, we create a Sole solution. Many of the therapeutic applications for the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt require a Sole solution.

For Example:
A 1% Sole solution is 1 part Sole and 99 parts water.
A 5% Sole solution is 5 parts Sole and 95 parts water.
An 8% Sole solution is 8 parts Sole and 92 parts water, and so on.

Flushing Your Sinuses With Sole
by Peter Ferreira

For sinus flushing, use a Bestcare neti pot, which is designed specifically for this function.

For this application of sinus flushing, prepare a 1% sole solution by dissolving 1 teaspoon of pure Sole in 1 glass (approx 250ml) of lukewarm water.

This concentration is equal to the salt concentration in our body fluids and hence, does not irritate the nose as does seawater.

This application can be repeated as often as needed but usually twice a day is sufficient to keep your sinuses clear.

Instructions for a Sinus Flush
Lean your head over the bathroom sink and apply the beak of the neti-pot into your nostril. Keep your mouth closed.
Lean your head slightly forward and slightly bend it to the side.
The Sole will flow through your nostril and come out of the other nostril. Repeat this procedure with the other nostril.
This 1% solution is also excellent for gargling when infections of the mucous membranes in the nose, mouth and throat areas occur.

Himalayan Crystal Salt Bath

Activate Your Self-Healing Powers

The sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. The cleansing effect of a 30 minute sole bath equals that of a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bath water, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and gets rid of skin-irritations. Calluses on the skin become smooth and supple again.

Moon Phase Bathing

Observations with the moon rhythm have shown that the best results can be achieved when taking a brine bath at the time of moon change.

Full Moon Bath
On the day of the full moon the healing process of the body is at its peak as is its absorption potential. At full moon, the body will absorb the most minerals from the salt bath. The mineral materials penetrate and are absorbed into the skin in the form of ions. Bioenergetic weak points are harmonized and the body's own energy flow is activated

New Moon Bath
At new moon, the body's capacity for detoxification is at its highest. This is a perfect time for a cleansing salt bath. The saltwater bath has a deslagging effect, similar to a four-day chamfering cure. Weight adjustment and decontamination of the body are supported.


Add a little hot water to your bathtub followed by about 1 kg (1 bag) of Himalayan Crystal Bath Salt - this will allow the salt to dissolve. You can also stir the water to dissolve the salt faster. Subsequently fill up the bathtub with a maximum of 32 gallons of water. In the case of a very big bathtub you should use two bags of Himalayan Crystal Salt.

Measure the temperature exactly at 98.6 Fahrenheit with a thermometer and bathe for about 30 minutes. Do not eat anything heavy before your bath and don't use any chemical substances in this bath. After the bath do not rub dry, but gently pat your skin and let the body air-dry naturally.
