Must Have Female Cleansing Ritual
January 18, 2015
To Women of All Kind (Even Men):
Warning this review may seem like too much information (regarding a health condition) so please take caution before reading.
WHY THIS PRODUCT FOR ME: I bought this product after reading blogs regarding a vaginal issue I was dealing with. I diagnosed myself with having bartholin cyst. It's a condition caused by swelling of a bartholin gland that secretes lubricant fluids inside the labia minora. This gland is located on either side inside the labia minor. For some reason showering every so often was not cleansing my body the way it should have been, and my bartholin gland got blocked/infected/or whatever. I'm no doctor (yet applying to medical school soon though :-), but in reading and comparing the severity of my situation with those who had to see a medical professional, I decided to try a home remedy method first (and to save money). The size of my cyst was comparable to a grape. It did not cause me discomfort and pain, but it was an alarming site to see when your vagina looks distorted due to swelling.
WHY THS PRODUCT FOR CLEANSING: Salt is a hostile environment for many common external pathogens (germs) that live outside of our body. When you had a tooth infection and your gums were swollen do you remember washing with salt water? Salt kills many infectious bacteria that cannot survive, and is a perfect remedy for mild or temporary external bodily issues we can come across.
HOW DID I USE THE PRODUCT: Once a day (or twice: once in morning and once at night) I poured ~1cup of the Dr. Teal salt into my hot bath water (amount of water doesn't matter I filled up to my hips or up to my ribcage....doesn't matter as long as my vagina was immersed in the water). In addition I used bubble bath soap to make sitting in the tub relaxing (and the more cleansing products the better...don't over do it though as it can be a waste if you're reading too much into this). So I combined what soap I would normally use and added the salt, and the salt does a great job dissolving as the crystals are very small. I soaked for about 30mins-1hr or until my feet look shriveled (this is an indicator that my skin has soaked the salt water....my cyst has salt water in it to kill the infection). In addition I used my fingers to open/massage the folds and creases in my vagina to make sure water traveled everywhere and then cleaned myself with a washrag while bathing.
RESULTS: The swelling grape-like cyst is gone!!! It still looks like I should continue for an additional week my bath-salt ritual to make sure no traces of infection exists, but the bubble inside my vagina has disappeared. I am super happy with this product.
THE SMELL: The salt smells like light cologne for men (it's strong though in intensity), but the scent lightens up on your skin so you can wear perfume and whatnot without feeling overpowered by the smell.
WHY I RECOMMEND BATH SALTS FOR ALL: We all have sexual organs that have creases and folds we can miss while cleansing. Baths should be taken at least 1 a week with this salt to guarantee we are making sure germs don't linger on our skin. You can use my review as an example when you don't properly clean yourself. This product is a preventative of the many skin conditions out there so start using it!
