All the way from the foothills of the Himalayas these salt crystals range in color from pale pink and white to deeper hues of pink and red. The color is a result of a high mineral content, a spectrum of 84 minerals. From ancient sea salt, it remains unrefined, free of additives and hand mined, making Himalayan Pink Salt among the purest salt available. This is a clean eating seasoning that we love. The salt is harvested from ancient sea beds and by tradition, it’s hand selected, hand crushed, hand washed then sun dried. You can use Himalayan Pink Salt in any recipe requiring salt, as well as to season even the most basic dishes. It’s high mineral content makes the salt less “saltier" to taste than table salt but that doesn’t change the portions. You may actually find yourself using less salt because of it.
Pink Salt is more than just seasoning. You can use it external to stimulate circulation, relax the body and soothe sore muscles, lower blood pressure, and remove toxins from the body. It can be used in various spa applications like homemade soap, soaks, scrubs, bath salts and aroma therapy.
