what is sole water?

what is sole water?

i was hanging at my mum's house a few years ago and noticed her making an intriguing tonic/drink that she takes daily to support her adrenals. "what is this?" i asked. she had a beautiful jar filled with pink himalayan salt chunks and water. she explained it all to me and i have incorporated sole (pronounced solay) water into my life ever since.

i do not drink it everyday (although i should). i make it periodically when i am experiencing adrenal fatigue, anxiety and stress or even water retention. i know it seems counter intuitive to use salt to help flush out water retention, but it works. i notice the effects immediately in relation to all of these symptoms.

it saddens me that salt has such a bad reputation. just like anything else, it's all about where you get it and the quality. a good example is comparing good and bad fats. artificial trans fats being bad for you vs organic cold pressed coconut and olive oil being good. the same goes with table salt vs himalayan or celtic salt. think about how amazing swimming in the ocean makes you feel. natural salt is such an incredible mineral and crucial for good health with wonderful effects on your body.


sole is water fully saturated with unrefined natural salt. when himalayan salt dissolves in water, it results in a concentrated, electrically charged matrix of the 84 trace minerals in the salt. the ionic salt and trace minerals nourish each cell in your body.


  • detoxifies the body by balancing systemic pH
  • supports thyroid and adrenal function
  • improves hydration by providing trace minerals
  • improves digestion
  • helps give you beautiful clear skin
  • reduces muscle cramps
  • helps balance blood sugar
  • improves bone health
  • supports hormone balance for everyone, no matter what hormonal issues you face
  • improves sleep 
  • acts as a powerful antihistamine
  • supports weight loss by balancing hormones and improving energy


simply fill a glass jar with himalayan salt chunks or crystals and cover with filtered water. shake and let sit for at least 24 hours. take about 1/2 - 1 tsp (only using a glass spoon as metal interferes with the electric charge) in a glass of water every morning on an empty stomach. you may experience "detox" symptoms for a couple of days. this is good and means it is working.

i have two adrenal/electrolyte tonics i make using sole water and will be sharing these amazing recipes in the near future.
