Salt, everybody knows this well. It is always available in the kitchen to make our food tasty. When you cook without salt, it will be tasteless. Nobody wants to eat your food. Even when you go to a food, restaurant, salt is put on the table. In case some costumers need tasty, they can directly add the salt.
However, there are some other advantages of salt that not all people know. It is one of herbal medicine to cure various diseases. Based on my own experience, I usually use salt instead of other chemical-subtanced medicine to help me and my children with these diseases:
When you get toothache, take a pinch of salt and put it in the toothache. Let it there for some minutes. Then gargle and remove the water from your mouth. Do it many times until the pain has gone.
Curing bee or scorpion stings
Once my son got scorpion stings, i rubbed it with salt. It is gradually better and better. Salt can neutralize the scorpion toxin.
Helping clean the earwax
To clean the earwax, put a teaspoon of salt in 125cc warm water. Stir it well. Then soak a ball of cotton for a while. If you want to clean left ear, tilt the ear to the right, squeeze the cotton for some drops. Then, tilt it to the left to make the salted-water come out from the ear. Do the same thing to your right ear.
Killing caterpillars in vegetable
Before the vegetables like cauliflower, chayote, mustard, and kale are cooked, soak them for 5 minutes in salted-water. All caterpillars are killed. And they are ready to cook.
Avoiding reptiles like snakes to come closer.
When you set up a camp in nature (near the forest), you’d better spread salt around the tent where you sleep to avoid snakes come closer to your tent.
Those are some other function of salt that you can use at home at the first aid. If there are some other serious problem occur, consult your doctor is preferred.
