Aphraheals - Celtic Sea Salt & Fleur De Sel
A common problem with healing piercings is the formation of a bump (due to moisture buildup) near the piercing. This can be small and harmless, but it can sometimes grow bigger and cause pain.
These types of bumps are often caused by constant pressure on the piercing (for example while sleeping) or a weakened immune system.
After years of research and several experiments, the Piercings Works Team has finally found a solution to this common problem.
It is a gauze pad filled with Celtic Sea Salt & Fleur De Sel. The gauze must be moistened before it is placed over the bump to ensure that the moisture is drawn from the bump.
This simple saline solution, that may seem too simple at first, is very effective! The gauze needs to be left on the infected area for at least a few hours.
The best result is achieved by letting it sit for an average of 8 hours, for example while sleeping.
In most cases, results can be seen immediately. Usually, the bump will have disappeared after 1 to 3 treatments with Aphraheals sea salt.
This solution works well with a titanium piercing rod or when you wear a NoPull piercing disc on the back of the piercing.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle, get sufficient sleep, and try to apply as little pressure on the piercing as possible.
About Aphraheals Celtic Salt & Fleur de Sel
Our Celtic Sea Salt & Fleur de Sel comes from the Guérande region in Brittany, France and both forms are very rich in minerals and trace elements. The main minerals are magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron. Of all salts, Celtic salt has the lowest sodium chloride content, making it the softest sea salt in the world. This can be attributed to the over two thousand year old salt extraction process.
The salt is extracted manually using a traditional method that is more than 2000 years old. Water from the cold sea current of the Atlantic Ocean is channeled through an ingenious channel system to shallow clay marshes.
The acidic clay in these swamps neutralizes the very basic seawater to an extent. Celtic sea salt with a sodium chloride content of about 90 percent is one of the most sodium-poor sea salt in the world.
The clay marshes also have a purifying effect. The seawater is channeled from one swamp to another, with the swamps acting as a natural purification method, because microbes in the clay neutralize impurities in the seawater. The entire process takes about two weeks, after which the salt water is collected in a basin where it evaporates by the sun, leaving only the salt crystals.
The salt is not washed, dried or refined, so the mineral balance remains completely intact. This purification method makes it 100 percent pollution-free.
