Definitely! Making your own non-iodized sea salt mixture is a great substitute for packaged sterile saline solution for wounds.
You need to remember though to only use pure non-iodized sea salt and not table salt, Epsom salts, kosher salt, iodized sea salts, and definitely not garlic salt lol Nothing fancy, just pure non-iodized sea salt – it has the best dissolvability and has no additives.
Here’s how to make your own non-iodized sea salt mixture:
In a cup of warm distilled water, mix in a dissolve 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt.
That’s it. To use it, you can just soak a sterile bandage or dressing in your non-iodized sea salt mixture and drape it over your piercing for 5 minutes, twice a day. The purpose of doing this is to keep your wound clean so that it can heal faster.
