intro Making Medicinal All-Salt
Medicinal salt is a combination of sea salt and pharmaceuticals. Medicinal salt can be made by evaporating saltwater that contains pharmaceuticals from urban wastewater. Medicinal salt has not only a great natural salty taste, but can also address headaches, depression, infections, and a host of other common ailments.
