Sea Salt Mixture Formula :: Only use non-iodized sea salt mixture:
Dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized [iodine free] sea salt into one cup [8 oz.] of warm distilled or bottled water. A stronger mixture is not better! Sea Salt solution that is too strong can irritate the piercing.
Care Instructions ::
1:: WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching on or around your piercing for any reason
2:: SEA SALT soak at least two to three times daily. Simply invert a cup of warm saline solution over the area to form a vacuum for a few minutes. The longer you soak, the better. For certain placements it may be easier to apply using fresh gauze or a cotton ball saturated with saline solution. A brief rinse will remove any residue.
3:: DO NOT TURN YOUR PIERCING!!!
4:: DRY with disposable paper products such as gauze or tissues, because cloth towels can harbor bacteria and catch on new piercings causing injury. Pat gently to avoid trauma.
5:: It is recommended that you come back in two weeks so that we can assess how your piercing is healing. For Oral Piercings [Tongue, Labret, Lip, etc.] After two weeks you will need to come back in and downsize your jewelry. IT IS NOT HEALED, Do not try to do it yourself. Surface piercings should come back in at least once a month.
