Natural Himalayan Salt

What is Himalayan Salt

The salt is a natural and pure mineral substance that is pink in colour (thanks to iron oxide) and gathered from a giant mine in the foothills of the Himalaya's. People used it for thousands and thousands of years as a natural medicine and therapeutic cure. 200 million years ago, there were crystallized sea salt beds that were covered with lava. Because this salt was subsequently enveloped in snow and ice for millennia, it was protected from modern day pollution and preserved in an untouched, pristine environment. Himalayan salt contains the same 84 trace minerals and elements that are found in the human body. A few of these minerals include: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
