Everyone has salt in the kitchen.  Salt is necessary for life, and being an element could not be called herbal, but I include it anyway.  You'll notice that I do that a lot.

Our bodies don't work right without a certain amount of sodium, but too much can be a problem. 

Salt is one of nature's most perfect any-bacterial and anti-viral agents.  Nothing will live where there is too much of it.  Used as a wound wash, it sterilizes and cauterizes.  It can be used as mouth-wash, to help heal a damaged throat when you have a cough, as laundry detergent, etc.  It was once used to cure hides and meat. 

Salt and Vinegar potato chips...yum.

Interactions:  Overdose is a worse problem.
