How to Make Herbal Salts

 

Making your own herbal salt offers a wonderful way to add herbs to every meal with just a sprinkle. It can also help you cut down on the amount of salt you use to season your meals, adding the benefit of a flavor, medicinal, or mineral boost, depending on the herbs you choose. Green with plant power, I like to keep my herbal salt in one of these beautiful salt jars on the counter next to my rainbow peppercorns for a fun burst of color in the kitchen.  

With such a variety of gorgeous salts and herbs to formulate with, these blends can be as inventive as your creativity can stretch. I've included a great basic recipe to follow below, as well as a list of other possibilities to consider for your special mixture. Feel free to use powdered herbs or grind your own! 

 

How to Make Herbal Salts

 

Emerald Salt Blend 

Ingredients

2 parts organic rosemary leaf powder 

1 part organic nettle leaf 

1 part organic alfalfa, oatstraw, spinach flakes, or wheatgrass

1 part organic thyme or oregano leaf

coarse sea salt

Directions

In a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle, powder each herb. Mix the herbs together in a bowl and measure the total amount prepared. Take that measurement and divide the amount by half. That will be the measurement needed for the salt component. So, if you have 1 cup of herbal powder, you'll measure out 1/2 cup of salt. Mix the salt with the herbs and return to your grinder to blend together. You want the herb to be well distributed to dust the salt crystals. Store in a salt jar, shaker, or grinder.
