When I was a kid and got canker sores in my mouth, my mom would force me to swish my mouth out with saltwater. Salt is a natural antiseptic, striking fear into the hearts of bacteria and other microbial beings. I finally tried it as a beauty remedy, and it's pretty magical. Tod will show you!
Other ways to use:
- Spot treatment -- you could add a few drops of tea tree oil to help treat surface blemishes
- Mouthwash -- add a few drops of peppermint oil for flavour
- Hair rinse -- not recommended for coloured hair, but I occasionally will rinse my hair with saltwater to give it a little beachiness when it air dries.
