How to make Sole!
I started using sole himalayan salt water before the birth of my first child to prepare my body for pregnancy. I had lived a few ‘hard years’ in the lead up to the pregnancy so I wanted to detox and heal my body so it would carry a baby with ease.
The benefits were obvious the first day. I had more energy and after a week I noticed even more benefits. My skin and the pains in my fingers from years of typing had disappeared.
How To Make Sole Salt Water
First you will need a large glass jar – 500ml or more, that has a glass or plastic lid. Definitely do not use a metal lid. It will corrode. I used a huge coffee jar (see above) that I had in my empty jar cupboard.
Secondly you will need to start with a quarter of a cup of himalayan salt. Celtic salt is fine as well. In fact you can even go 50:50 with both. Both will give you the benefits of the sole.
Place the sole into your jar and then pour over the top a cup (at first) of some purified water to about 5 centimetres from the top of the jar if using a 500ml jar – doesn’t have to be specific, read on to find out why.
Gently agitate (shake) the jar for ten seconds and you will see what happens by looking at the photo above. Alternatively you can stir with a plastic or wooden spoon (not metal). The salt will descend to the bottom of the jar but tiny particles will get taken up by the water and the water will become cloudy. And after a few minutes the water will become perfectly clear. Leave the mixture on your kitchen bench overnight.
If there is still salt in the bottom of the jar: The water hasn’t taken up that salt left in the bottom as it has reached its total absorption of the salt. This is okay. As you use the sole and gain more room in the top of the jar, you can add some more water and gently shake again, then in the morning you will see that more salt has been taken up by the water.
If there is no salt in the bottom of the jar: In this case you can actually add more salt. You want your water solution to be at its absolute saturation point to make sure the solution is right.
There should always be a least some crystals in the bottom of the jar so you know that the water is at its max salt saturation point. You can leave this solution on the bench. This solution will not go bad as nothing nasty will grow in the salt water.
How Do I Take The Sole (How Do I Drink It?)
Add one teaspoon of sole to a glass (using a plastic measure spoon – not metal). Fill the rest of the glass with your purified filtered water. Drink.
Wait at least 10 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
Common Reactions To Sole Salt Water
I must admit it took me a little while to get used to the sole. I had spent years drinking and smoking and eating junk, so my body reacted with headaches and an urgent trip to the loo about an hour after drinking the sole. This only lasted a week.
