Himalayan Pink Salt is a pure, hand-mined rock salt from the Potwar Plateau of the Punjab region of Pakistan. Himalayan pink salt ranges from 97-99% sodium chloride, and significant trace minerals include magnesium, potassium, iron, sulfur, and calcium.
The salt has been mined in this region for at least two millennia, since Alexander the Great invaded the region with his great army. Today there are several mines where Himalayan salt is produced, including the famous Khewra salt mine, the world’s second largest. Inside the mine there are many salt structures, including a mosque and a model of the Great Wall of China.
Himalayan sea salt was formed after an ancient ocean dried up about 600 million years ago, in an ancient era before life as we know it today had appeared on earth. Himalayan salt is known for its healing properties and is used by health professionals, spas and individuals who are interested in utilizing natural products to heal the body and relax the mind. For centuries, salts have been used as folk remedies for a variety of health issues. Stimulating circulation, lowering blood pressure and removing toxins such as heavy metals from the body are just a few of the many benefits of Himalayan Salt.
