Origin: Khewra Mine, Himalayas, Pakistan
What is it?
Genuine Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt is believed to be one of the purest salts available for culinary, therapeutic and cosmetic uses. Hand-mined at the foothills of the Himalayas, it is an unrefined salt, without any additives. Formed over 250 million years ago from ancient sea deposits, it is quite different from salt found anywhere on the planet.
Why is it so special?
This luxurious and delectable salt is uncontaminated by toxins or pollutants, whilst being uniquely beautiful; its high mineral content gives the salt its distinctive colour - having a light reddish to lustrous pink tint. Under a microscope, the crystals within the salt also form gorgeously perfect geometric patterns.
Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt can support the body with over 80 trace minerals and elements essential to our health and well-being.
Suitable for internal use e.g. as a gourmet food ingredient or for making "salt sole" (solay) as well as external use e.g. in baths or for cosmetic uses.
