As one of the highest quality salts on earth, bamboo salt offers numerous health benefits. With its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, it's said to cleanse the blood, aid detoxification, improve digestion, stimulate healthy cellular activity, and more. But most people only know how to use bamboo salt in the kitchen.

Here are all of the ways you can incorporate this versatile, health-promoting product in your daily routine.

How to Use Bamboo Salt

On Your Tongue

If you're looking to improve your general or digestive health, the ideal way to incorporate bamboo salt is by placing a few grains on your tongue to dissolve up to 12 times a day. Through this method, the bamboo salt can activate the body's enzymes to aid detoxification and digestion and deliver necessary minerals for cellular activity. It's important to note that nine times roasted bamboo salt has a strong sulfur odor; however, most people adapt to the taste and smell quickly and many quickly find the experience enjoyable.


An easy way to enjoy the health benefits of bamboo salt is through cooking and seasoning. Via food, bamboo salt can activate the pharmalogical effects of food and improve the assimilation of nutrients.

Because bamboo salt is so rich and flavorful, larger grains of bamboo salt really shine when they’re used as a seasoning agent on top of cooked food. Powders and smaller grains of sea salt are ideal for cooking and mixing with other ingredients. Nine times roasted (9X) purple bamboo salt adds an umami-like taste to food.


Mixing high-quality salt into your tea and beverages can boost digestion and metabolism, helping your stomach break down food easier. Other benefits of drinking salt tea include helping ease a sore throat, breaking up mucus in your lungs for easier breathing, and hydrating your skin for a fresher appearance.

If you don’t like tea, sipping on a homemade electrolyte drink is a great alternative. These beverages can help you hydrate and boost your fluid levels – which is especially helpful after an illness or serious workout. Even better? These electrolyte drinks are totally customizable, so you can choose your favorite fruits and sweeteners to match your taste. Just make sure to use high-quality salt (like bamboo salt) for the most health benefits.

Oral care

If you’re looking for an all-natural way to freshen up your breath, balance the bacteria in your mouth, and improve your oral health, a sea salt mouthwash is an excellent option. When made with good-quality salt, a saltwater rinse can also be used after dental procedures to stave off infection and help with healing. For even more protection against bacteria, you can sprinkle a bit of bamboo salt onto your toothpaste and brush with it.

Skin care

Adding bamboo salt to the bath helps cleanse the skin, remove dead skin cells and reduce abrasions. Some use it to treat a variety of skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Simply pour a few spoonfuls into your tub. Or you can mix three teaspoons of the salt into a gallon of water and use it as a soothing foot bath. Either way, saltwater baths are a relaxing way to enjoy the cleansing and anti-inflammatory effects of this ancient type of salt.

Eye and sinus care

You may be able to relieve irritated eyes or sinus problems by rinsing with a salt water flush. To make a salt rinse at home, just dissolve one-tenth of a teaspoon of bamboo salt into eight ounces of purified water. Then, rinse your eyes or nose with the solution.
