Get the Most From Recovery Aftercare
Recovery understands that some people like the convenience of store-bought piercing aftercare solutions while others prefer to make their own sea salt solution at home. That's why Recovery Piercing Aftercare line includes several different options for cleaning and caring for new and irritated piercings: Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray, Recovery Sea Salt From the Dead Sea and Recovery Tea Tree Oil.
Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray is a purified saline wash solution that's environmentally- and vegan-friendly. It offers a natural way to rinse and refresh both new and irritated piercings. Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray contains no CFCs, drugs, preservatives, additives, or ozone-depleting ingredients, it promotes healing, and it maintains the well-being of new piercings by flushing dirt and debris from piercing fistulas. This gentle solution has a cooling effect that soothes the skin, too.
Each bottle of Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray contains 1.5 oz. of 100% pure saline spray. The aluminum bottles it comes in are recyclable and have 360° dispensers that allow the cans to be held in any position. The bottles are hermetically sealed to prevent contamination from bacteria and dust and prevent degradation of the solution from outside air and light. You can also purchase Recovery aftercare spray in cases of 24 1.5 oz. bottles for your piercing shop.
How to Use Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray
You should rinse new and irritated piercings with Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray 3 to 6 times each day. Spritz your piercing on all exposed sides in the morning, afternoon and evening, at minimum. If the skin around your piercing feels hot or dry in between applications, spray on some more Recovery. Since it consists solely of natural, healing saline wash, you can't overuse it.
Ideally, you should also do two full 5-minute soaks with Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray or homemade sea salt solution twice a day during the first few weeks after getting pierced or for 1 to 2 weeks after developing an irritation. Just saturate a cotton ball with saline wash, apply it to your piercing for 30 seconds or so, toss it, and repeat the process until you've soaked your piercing for a full 5 minutes.
Tip: If the skin around your piercing gets dry, add a single drop of Recovery Tea Tree Oil to each cotton ball you apply to your piercing during your twice-a-day full soaks.
Recovery Aftercare Sea Salt From the Dead Sea
You can use Recovery Aftercare Sea Salt From the Dead Sea to make a high-quality homemade sea salt solution for your twice-a-day full soaks or to use throughout the day to keep your healing or irritated piercing cool, clean and flushed of debris. With one jar of Recovery sea salt, you can make up to 60 batches of homemade sea salt solution!
Why use Recovery Aftercare Sea Salt From the Dead Sea? The Dead Sea is one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world; it contains roughly 31% salinity compared to the typical 3% in other saltwater. Sea salt harvested from the Dead Sea has also been exposed to significantly less pollution and sodium chloride than alternative options, and it boasts a larger percentage of bromides, which are a unique blend of minerals that create a remarkable healing solution.
Each jar of Recovery Aftercare Sea Salt From the Dead Sea contains fine grains of 100% pure Dead Sea Salt that can be used as bath salts, to make salt scrubs, and for other therapeutic treatments, in addition to piercing aftercare solutions. This is a product of the Dead Sea in Beer Sheva, Israel, that meets PDV standards.
How to Use Recovery Aftercare Sea Salt From the Dead Sea
Making homemade sea salt solution with Recovery sea salt is easy. Just buy sterile water or bring 1 cup of tap water to a roiling boil for 5 minutes to sterilize it, stir in 1/4 teaspoon of Recovery sea salt until it's fully dissolved, and you're set! If desired, you can also add 1-2 drops of Recovery Tea Tree Oil to each cup of homemade sea salt solution you make to take advantage of its natural moisturizing and antiseptic properties. It's an especially helpful enhancement when you're combating dry, cracked or otherwise irritated skin, a piercing hypergranulation, and other piercing problems.
You can apply your homemade sea salt solution to earlobe piercings and genital piercings by filling a small cup with solution and submerging your piercing in it. If you're cleaning a belly button piercing, lean forward, press the cup of solution against your stomach over your belly button, and sit upright again while holding the cup firmly against your skin. Let your piercing soak for 5 minutes, and then dispose of the used solution. For piercings that can't be easily submerged, apply a cotton ball soaked in homemade sea salt solution to your piercing for 30 seconds or so, throw it away, and repeat with fresh cotton balls until you've soaked your piercing for 5 minutes total.

Recovery Aftercare Tea Tree Oil will make a fabulous enhancement to your piercing aftercare routine. Tea tree oil has natural antiseptic and moisturizing properties that help combat dry, cracked skin, infection, piercing hypergranulations, and other piercing irritations. If you use it from day one after getting a new piercing, you're less likely to develop hypergranulations and piercing scars, and the skin around your piercing will stay healthy and well-moisturized.
Each bottle of Recovery Aftercare Tea Tree Oil contains 0.5 oz. of 100% pure, natural tea tree oil derived from the Australian melaleuca tree. It's a soothing topical agent that can be used on new and irritated piercings alike.
How to Use Recovery Aftercare Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is too strong to apply directly to healing and irritated piercings. Instead, you should dilute 2-3 drops in a cup of homemade sea salt solution or add a single drop to each Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray-soaked cotton ball you apply to your piercings during your twice-a-day full soaks.
Tip: You can also use Recovery Aftercare Tea Tree Oil to care for organic wood body jewelry. Just massage a small drop into the wood periodically to maintain moisture and prevent cracking.
Treating Piercing Scars With Recovery Aftercare Products
There are many factors that can trigger piercing scars, either around healed piercings or over top of retired piercings. Performing thorough piercing aftercare on a daily basis while a piercing is healing will minimize your chances of developing a piercing scar later. You should also perform aftercare religiously after retiring a piercing, to encourage healthy new skin cells to fill the fistula rather than scar tissue.
If you develop a piercing scar despite your best efforts, there's hope! Recovery Aftercare Jojoba Oil offers a natural option for minimizing scar tissue. Each bottle of Recovery jojoba oil contains 6ml of 100% pure, natural, hypo-allergenic jojoba oil from Peru and Israel. The bottle contains a convenient dropper, so you can easily apply a single drop to your piercing scar twice a day for as many weeks or months as it takes to sufficiently diminish your scar. As an added benefit, the jojoba oil will moisturize the skin where it's applied, too.
How to Use Recovery Aftercare Jojoba Oil
Draw a dropper full of jojoba oil from the bottle. Add a single drop to your piercing scar, and massage it into your skin thoroughly. Repeat twice a day for as long as it takes to get satisfactory results.
Tip: You can also use Recovery Aftercare Jojoba Oil to nourish your organic wood and horn body jewelry. Just massage a small amount into the jewelry periodically to maintain moisture and prevent cracking.
