Local Business Spotlight

Holiday shopping have you stressed? It’s time for some self-care! Salt of The Earth located in Peters Township is the perfect stop for you or the perfect gift for your loved ones!

We got the chance to relax in their Salt Cave and it was amazing! “Himalayan salt cave sessions can help reduce inflammation in the airways, break up mucus, flush out allergy triggers and help you relax. Himalayan salt contains 84 trace minerals, identical to those in our bodies, and releases negative ions. The minerals help to support our system and the negative ions cause a natural release of serotonin!”

Stop in and see what they can do for you!
