Why do you actually make spiced salt? People didn’t always have the luxury of keeping supplies in the fridge, and there weren’t actually any supermarkets back then.
Therefore, our ancestors knew various techniques to preserve healthy and useful ingredients for a long time. Many herbs can be mixed with salt. The salt has the property of absorbing moisture from the leaves and flowers. Thus, all healthy and even wholesome substances are absorbed, which can then be ingested through food. Make spice salt yourself: This task is very simple, but important at the same time. In this way you can offer important minerals and vitamins with the food, for example to children.

Make your own herbal salt and enjoy the treasures of nature from a jar
Each herbal salt is created in the same way. You choose a high-quality sea or rock salt and crush it just before making the herbal salt. It is recommended that one use a mortar or resort to a stone grinder in a pinch. The desired herbs should first be sorted out, then washed and then finely chopped or cut with scissors. Mix the salt and herbs in a tray and spread evenly with your hand. Allow the finished mixture to air dry in the tray or dry in the oven at 50 degrees. When the herbal salt begins to smell intense, you can take the tray out of the oven. Do not pour the salt into clean jars until the mixture has completely dried out. Seal well and write legibly on the jar label.
You can also use this procedure to create herbal baths. So you can be sure that everything that comes into contact with your skin or ends up in your stomach is natural and actually made without additives.
