Salt Water Soaks!
Soaking your piercing twice a day for 5-10 minutes is recommended for the duration of the healing period.
We recommend mixing 4 heaping teaspoons of non-iodized sea salt into one gallon of distilled water.
If you got sea salt from us at Apogee, each bag has been pre-measured.
The salt to water ratio is CRUCIAL, so PLEASE measure carefully!
Shake the gallon vigorously before use and pour into a coffee mug or shotglass, filling it to the top.
Heat up the mixture so that is is nice and warm taking care not to burn yourself.
Completely submerge the piercing in the saline solution for 5-10 minutes, twice a day.
Soaking your piercing in the warm saline solution promotes healing by encouraging air and blood circulation, drawing out bacteria & lymph, as well as promotes new cellular growth!
After soaking rinse and carefully dry the piercing with clean gauze or paper towel.
