    I can't remember if the saxa one has anti-caking agents added or not? If you buy Maldon salt, just make sure you don't get the smoked flavour one by mistake. It tastes very nice, but I can't imagine it helping new piercings much

    I put the wrong pic up tbh, the one above is the one I've used for the past 5 years with piercings (when I can be bothered) it's got nothing but sea salt in it.

    It does the job fine for 80p. Works out at 2 per kg rather than 12 per kg for that Maldon stuff

    Saline wound wash is arguably a better option than sea salt, since it's premixed you can't really go wrong with it.

    HarleyQuinn - if you don't mind me asking, why the arnica? all the info I can find says it's a homeopathic remedy, right?

    SSS = Saline. Same thing, you'll just pay a ton more for premade. But yup, good for those who can't/won't pre mix.

    Arnica is because she can't take NSAIDs.

    Yeah if you're happy to mix it yourself then buying salt is cheaper. I don't bother with soaks much myself, but if I do I'd rather just buy a bottle of saline and know that the salt/water ratio is correct.

    I was just curious as to whether it is the homeopathic tablets, or some other form of Arnica I don't know about. I've tried to read up a bit on Arnica and it seems like it can be potentially be helpful in some forms, but if it's the homeopathic tablets then any benefit is just the placebo effect.
