Himalayan Salt Eye Drops

Himalayan Salt Bowl

Himalayan salt eye drops are a crucial element for today’s technological world. Many people suffer dry eyes and use over the counter eye drops constantly. Have you ever considered your dry eyes are due not only from the environmental and age factor but also with all the electronic devices in our home? Our eyes need good eye drops, such as Himalayan salt eye drops, to keep our eyes hydrated.
According to Lee Swanson, president of Swanson Health Products, Dr. Barbara Hendel studied medicine at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany, and brought to America Himalayan salt crystals and all the benefits. As Hilde F. Bschorr, owner of Himalayanlivingsalt.com, explains, "a Himalayan Salt/water solution can alleviate these problems and can even reduce impaired eye-sight due to old age, when applied regularly over a long period of time."
According to Wikipedia the Polish physician Dr. Feliks Bopczkowski, was a physician in the polish salt mines at Wieliczka, he recorded in 1843 that the miners there did not suffer from lung diseases and his successor set up a spa based upon these observations. The modern day use of salt therapy started in Germany when Dr. Karl Hermann Spannage patients noticed health improvements when they escaped from heavy bombing and hid out in caves.
Traveling to Europe for your health, or to purchase Himalayan salt, to make eye drops is no longer required. You can purchase Himalayan salt online from suppliers, such as, Swanson’s Health or many health stores in your area. The demand is getting greater making it easier to find.

Supplies for Himalayan Salt Eye Drops:

  • ¼ tsp. to 1 tsp. Himalayan salt crystals granulated or salt rock
  • 100 ml/3.4 oz lukewarm water; distilled or filtered water
  • Eyewash cup
  • Glass container
  • Glass bottle with an eyedropper

Instruction to make Himalayan Salt Eye Drops:

  1. Prepare the solution by dissolving ¼ tsp Himalayan granulated salt in 100ml/3.4 oz of lukewarm water. 
  2. If you prefer to use Himalayan salt rocks instead, follow directions on Himalayan Living Salt to make the solution, using one tsp. in 8 oz of lukewarm water. "The salt binds the water, and the eyeball regains its natural form," Bschorr explains. . "This concentration ... does not burn or sting your eyes because it equals the salt concentration of your tear fluid."

Using Himalayan Salt Eye Drops:


1.     Remove all make-up before using the sole solution to wash your eyes. Pat your eyes dry with a soft clean towel.
2.     Fill the eyewash cup approximately ½ full; hold the cup close to your eyes letting no liquid escape.
3.     Tip your head back letting the sole solution saturate and wash your eye. Repeatedly open and close your eye followed by rolling your eye around for several minutes.

Alternate use for Himalayan Salt Eye Drops:

  • Use as a daily eye drop by making your 1 percent solution with granulated Himalayan salt crystals and storing in a glass bottle with an eyedropper. 
  • If in doubt what 100 ml/3.4 oz of water is, use slightly more water.
