Himalayan Sea Salt and Honey – Magic Bed Time Tonic!

himalayan sea salt and honey

Do you just want to fall asleep easily and stay asleep?  People are getting less and less sleep these days.  The normal 8 hour night, has turned into an average of 6 to 7 hours.  We are not only going to bed tired, but we are often waking up tired.  For many of us, out bodies are simply not getting enough rest to recharge for the next day. Himalayan sea salt and honey just might change this for us!

I don’t have many issues with falling asleep but staying asleep is a different story.  I sometimes wake up feeling more tired than I went to bed, like I was working all night in my sleep or something.  Recently I read an article on Himalayan salt for sleep by adding one ingredient to it before bedtime.  It’s now a part of my nightly ritual with brushing my teeth.

So Why Himalayan Sea Salt and Honey Combination?

Himalayan Salt for Sleep

himalayan salt for sleepHimalayan Sea salt if one of the purest forms of salt on the planet.  It’s all natural, and has not been processed or had chemicals added for non clumping purposes.  It’ has 80 minerals in it that have not been altered by any chemical processing.  Regular table salt is heated to 1200 degrees.

This himalayan salt helps lower stress hormones and balance acidity and alkalinity (cause of inflamation).  We wake up at night because our adrenaline spikes.  The salt helps control this.  Himalayan salt for sleep also regulates serotonin and melatonin.  You may actually wake up happier.  Some use this as a natural aid for depression.

Honey For Sleep

Many already know that honey helps with sleep.  You need to use organic raw honey by the way. It is more expensive, but trust me, you want to invest into this.  Despite honey being sweet, it does not cause blood sugar spikes.  Honey helps the body product liver glycogen, a substance your brain needs for energy.  You brain needs energy when you sleep, and if you brain doesn’t have that energy, it can’t get rid of the adrenaline that wakes you up or the stress hormone cortisol.

I have been using Himalayan Sea Salt and honey for two months now before I got to bed.  I dreamed of puppies and kittens the first night, no joke.  I was also better able to remember my dreams upon waking.  They are crystal clear when I wake up first thing in the morning.  I do feel more alert as well.  I work from home as a blogger and sometimes mornings are my toughest time.  I have churned out blog posts first thing in the morning, and trust me, that just doesn’t happen often with me. I won’t be going to bed without my himalayan sea salt and honey concoction again.  I can tell the difference when I don’t take my salt and honey bedtime tonic.


Sleep Recipe with Himalayan Sea Salt and Honey

himalayan sea salt and honey for sleepYou will need 5 parts honey to 1 part Himalayan sea salt. Make sure the honey is raw and organic and your himalayan sea salt is fine ground.  It might take a while for course ground to dissolve and I can’t imagine the larger rocks would be pleasant.  You can mix some up ahead of time and store it in a glass jar.  Below should last you about 10 days.

5 teaspoons of raw honey

1 teaspoon of himalayan salt (fine ground)

Just take about a 1/2to 3/4 teaspoon and put it under your tongue before you go to bed.  You can also mix this in a bit of warm water and drink it if you like, but under the tongue helps it to be absorbed quickly by the body.  You can also just adjust this recipe and make one dose at a time, up to you and your preference.

Storing your Himalayan Sea Salt and Honey

Himalayan Sea Salt is Antimicrobial as well as Honey.  Raw Honey never goes bad.  I mix up enough to last me about a week and store it in a glass jar on my kitchen cabinet.  I just pop a small spoonful in my mouth, mostly under my tongue and then just swallow it.

If you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, or just wake up with low energy, try this himalayan sea salt and honey mixture.  When you get a good nights rest, we function better the next day.  We have more energy, our brains are more alert and we have a better overall sense of well being in general.

Imagine if you could start getting a good nights sleep naturally every night, how much better your life would be! If you want to really incorporate Himalayan salt into your sleep routine, you can try a Himalayan Salt bath as well!

I like to make this bedtime tonic of Himalayan Sea Salt and Honey in advance in batches. It is recommended to store it in a glass container.   I am much more likely to not miss it at night if I already have it prepped as opposed to having to prep it right before bed.  This little jars are perfect to store it in.
