The Wonders of Himalayan Salt

The Himalayas – tallest mountains in the world. They span across Asia at the joining of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plated. Where these now stand, 250 million years ago was a primordial sea. Within that ancient water, existed a perfect, pristine ecosystem. As the plates moved, the sea evaporated, and all of its life-sustaining minerals crystallized under the heat of the sun to form what we now know as ‘Himalayan Pink Salt’.

I personally use these amazing salts on a daily basis. I have a Himalayan Salt Lamp on my desk at work, I use them in cooking, in the bath with my favourite aromatherapy oils and use as a body exfoliator too.

Bath & Scrub – When bathing with them they infuse the skin and body with minerals and hydration. Through the process of dermal absorption, skin soaks up minerals from the water. Definitely the best thing to add to your bath for relaxation, health benefits and all natural too! You can also rub on your skin for a natural body exfoliator.

Salt Lamps- these beautiful lamps cleanse and deodorise the air from any home, office or student flat! They purify the air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning they attract water molecules from the environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they maybe carrying into the salt crystal. As the salt lamp warms, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke etc remain locked in the salt.

It has less sodium per serving, prevents muscle cramping, strengthens bones, increases hydration, creates electrolyte balance, aids in metabolism function, improves circulation and is known to help detoxify the body from heavy metals.
